My Dinner in Hell
The Melty Man Cometh
Steve sees Sally naked by mistake after she uses Susan's shower. Patrick has "car" trouble, while Steve and Sally are trying to figure out how to tell Susan that Steve saw Sally naked. Steve is also trying to find good opinions he does not have on cushions and fabrics. Jeff introduces the Captain sub-text to all.

Susan’s latest project is to choose some furniture for the flat that she and Steve will share together. Against the backdrop of selecting fabrics, the truth slowly emerges about a deep mystery: why Steve and Sally have suddenly started acting so strangely.
Steve went to Susan’s flat unannounced and saw Sally emerging from the shower. That was a forgivable accident - but why did Sally then remove the towel and ask Steve whether he found her attractive? Her excuse takes everyone by surprise: she needed reassurance because she’d just been to bed with Patrick. And for the first time ever, Junior Patrick had failed to jump to attention.
Faced with Sally’s naked form, Steve blurts out that he realises he’s not welcome in her bush.
