Houseguest rants about people talking about America and people who drink Australian wine. He’s a gibbering moron who each day finds new profound depths of awfulness. He makes fake claims about the heaters, says it’s cold when it isn’t and leaves his socks soaking in the bathroom sink. Good lord. He doesn’t do dishes and wakes up during the night and complains about where he went to school and where we buy bread. He shouts about books on the floor and an umbrella and yells about Wellington boots affecting his “mental stability” and goes berserk over everything.

On ‘Neighbours’: Gary’s stupid. Jack is disgusted by Leo’s crapulence. There is no moral equivalence. Ben is thick, Xanthe unquestioningly follows him, the rec centre and youth hostel are stupid sets and Leo sneers. His moral choices show he has a pathological aversion to sense. He has no remorse. Shelia is scalded by Susan. Leo is smug. Karl is clocked by a garden gnome wielding Gary. Sheila is menaced.

Best Lines:
“She keeps letting you off the hook.”

“Beyond disappointing.”
