Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard

In this episode of This Life, Milly (Amita Dhiri) grows increasingly frustrated with Egg (Andrew Lincoln) and begins working late with O'Donnell (David Mallinson) on a case involving the dissolution of a longtime business partnership. Although Miles (Jack Davenport) insists that Milly's anger is just PMS, Egg tries to find a job; he soon learns that telemarketing isn't the answer to his problems. Egg also continues his efforts at being a novelist, weathering taunts and criticism from both Milly and Miles. Jo (Steve John Shepherd) vents his sexual frustration with Anna (Daniela Nardini) by giving her crappy assignments; she commiserates with Warren (Jason Hughes), thinking he'll understand her desire for entanglement-free sex, but he shares his disenchantment with anonymous sex with his therapist (Gillian McCutcheon). At a birthday party for her boss, Hooperman (Geoffrey Bateman), Anna gets trashed and makes a fool of herself. Egg's dad, Jerry (Paul Copley), shows up and reveals that Egg's mother has left him for another man. Season one, episode eight of the cult-favorite British soap This Life: Cheap Thrills first aired on BBC 2 on May 6, 1996.
