In this episode of This Life, Egg (Andrew Lincoln) settles into his unemployment while Milly (Amita Dhiri) does damage control with O'Donnell (David Mallinson). Milly pressures Egg about finding a job, but he seems less than enthused; their sexual and relationship problems continue apace. Anna (Daniela Nardini) frets about money and worries about Milly and Egg's problems. She and Warren (Jason Hughes) prepare a romantic dinner for the quarreling couple. Miles (Jack Davenport) freaks out about the Sharingham case after Hooperman (Geoffrey Bateman) pressures him to ask his father, Montgomery (Michael Elwyn), to testify; Montgomery stonewalls him, and Miles blows up. After a night of sexual adventures, Warren freaks out that Kira (Luisa Bradshaw-White) will find out that he's gay. His worry turns to paranoia after she drops in on a dinner he's sharing with his camp, queeny friend Phil (Richard Cant). Milly counsels him to open up to Kira, but he resists. The truth finally comes out when Kira follows him to the park where he cruises for sex; she is completely accepting and promises not to tell her the rest of their extended family. Afterward, Warren's macho soldier brother, Dale (Mark Lewis Jones), shows up for a visit. Season one, episode six of the cult-favorite British soap, This Life: Family Outing first aired on BBC 2 on April 22, 1996.
