    Jane visits Patrick to heal their "spiritual divide". She stumbles upon his cabinet of videotape recordings of the sexual engagements in his bedroom, including a tape of him with Susan. As Patrick tells this story - complete with interjections from Jeff about Claudia Schiffer, Helen Mirren, Britt Ekland and screen nudity - Steve is incensed that his "naked rights to Susan" are being infringed.
    The men all decide to go back to Patrick's to watch the video and the women arrive there as well for their own reasons. Susan, by now thoroughly annoyed with Patrick and Steve (and Jeff, after finding him there too), is even more livid when she realises that Patrick's taped over her, and yet more angry when the video turns out not to feature her at all, a fact that eluded the men despite having watched it for five minutes. In her fury she breaks up with Steve, who subsequently gets very drunk with Patrick and Jeff.
    All is lost... but wait, who's that at the door? Jeff drags himself onto Steve's bed and exclaims, "Look, Steve. It's Britt Ekland".
  • Patrick's sexual history...apparently Susan's in there. But is there anyone else in there that we know of..?

    The finale to the first series. And a bloody cracker, too! Patrick videos his experiences, which is highly amusing to the boys, until Steve remembers that Susan used to go out with Patrick.
    "You've got a tape of my girlfriend!"
    "At the time she was MY girlfriend!"
    Steve doesn't want to see it, in case she did stuff with Patrick that she doesn't do with him. Of course he wants to see it! Jeff wants to see it because, well Jeff has absolutely no standards. The girls are curious..or is it jealous? Sally missed her 'go' with Patrick, and Jane's 'go' was interrupted...Stay tuned for series 2!
  • This episode is about Patrick in his hobby of taping his sexual partners. Steve\'s uneasyness about a tape of Suesan. Suesan wanting steve to not see the tape. Jane\'s Lonelyness and Sally wanting to stay young forever in The Cupboard of Patrick\'s Love.

    Warning there are spoilers\"

    This is a really good episode. I remember watching this episode it was the first episode where you see Patrick\'s flat. Also it is the first almost break up of Susan and Steve. Also you see Jane\'s first someone using the heal our spiritual divide common. \"I only wish to heal the size of your loneliness.\" Also they reuse the theme of Patrick and his partner \"Junior Patrick.\"the name of Patrick\'s penis would come up later in the second season of coupling. I really enjoyed this episode. I would it funny and a classic episode to say the least.
