Episode Summary

Juno and the Paycock
Captain Boyle is "Captain" by virtue of a single trip made as a seaman on a collier bound from London to Liverpool. He is usually known to his neighbors, however, as the "paycock" on account of his strutting, consequential gait. He and his crony, Joxer, spend most of their time drinking in "pubs" or playing cards in the Boyle flat, where Joxer flatters him to his face and steals from him behind his back. Boyle has nicknamed his wife "Juno" because she "was born and christened in June. I met her in June; we were married in June and Johnny was born in June." Throughout all the trouble and turmoil, Captain and his crony remain blissfully drunk and obtuse to their problems.moreless
