Episode Summary

The Lost Weekend
The Eye-catchers agency has business one weekend in Zurich and Simon decides that he will make the trip. Derek is indignant that it is always Simon who makes the overseas business trips, while he himself goes on all the routine trips in the UK. Samantha comes to the office one evening to see Simon, but he is too busy to talk to her. Samantha points out that Simon's business interests are taking over his life and he never has time for her now. Simon decides that he will stay at home that weekend and send Derek to Zurich. Derek is delighted by the opportunity to spend the weekend abroad, but on Saturday morning he telephones Simon saying he has missed the flight. He had planned to take a girlfriend with him, but was so overridden with guilt about his wife that he hid in the airport until the flight had taken off, but he can't go home because he has already pretended to be in Zurich. Derek stays the weekend with Simon and Samantha. He tries forlornly to seduce Isobel and wakes the household early by playing classical music. Simon decides he must go home but Derek says he can't go home until he has bought Swiss presents for his family. Simon drives him to the Swiss Centre in London to make some suitable purchases. Then Derek finally heads home in a taxi leaving Simon and Samantha to spend the rest of the remaining weekend together.moreless
