As Steve (Jack Davenport) and Susan (Sarah Alexander) continue their romance, their friends and exes keep getting in the way. Jane (Gina Bellman) implores Steve to attend her aunt's funeral under the pretense that he's still Jane's boyfriend. Upon hearing about this fiction, a suspicious Susan insists on coming along. Before long, Patrick (Ben Miles), Sally (Kate Isitt), and Jeff (Richard Coyle) are along for the ride, too. But the somber occasion gives Jeff the chance to expound upon -- and perhaps prove -- his theories about inappropriate laughter (aka "the giggle loop"). Originally broadcast May 26, 2000, on BBC2, Sex, Death & Nudity marked season one, episode three of the hit Britcom. Although the plot was tweaked for American audiences, this episode was remade as part of NBC's failed attempt to launch a U.S. version of Coupling as the heir apparent to Friends.
