Episode Summary

Husband & Wife
Alan is concerned with morale at Pyramid and so he hires William and Susan Doyle to produce a video to boost morale. He instructs them not to tell Veronica, Richard or Victor what they are doing as it will only arouse their suspicions. The last time the company produced an internal video they fired most of the staff. (2x02 New Offices) Meanwhile, Alan gives Victor and Wanda a make work project to find a song he heard on the radio at some point over the last week. The only problem is he doesn't remember how it goes, what station he was listening to, or when he heard it. The three are convinced that this, and Alan's announcement that the Sword of Damacles needs to be more Australian are all designed to keep them busy so they are unprepared for their coming firing. Veronica and Richard come up with a great way to break up the team by planting ideas in each others heads.moreless

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Susan: So why didn't you just tell them we were here to produce a video to boost morale.
        Alan: Because they would not believe the truth. Believe me, a lie sounds much more honest.

      • Alan: Morale around the office has been low ever since I cancelled Christmas.

      • Alan: Damacles, I need you to make it more Australian.
        Richard: Hmm?
        Alan: We can get some money for exteriors from the Australian government if we can make The Sword of Damacles more Australian. That is reflect Australian values and Australian themes.
        Richard: Damacles takes place in Ancient Greece and Australian society didn't really exist back then.
        Alan: Well, then its just a writing challenge isn't it Richard. Its not like it airs on PBS.

      • Richard's Opening Monologue
        Richard: Good morale is good for the bottom line, so its only natural that every CEO wants to boost the morale of his and her with uplifting speeches, pats on the back and employee of the month awards. Now unfortunately, there's nothing more demoralising as having someone try to boost your morale.
