Storyline

Deciding that women only like bad boys Roy goes on a blind date with a changed image as a womanizer. Security guard Daniel, impressed by Jen's trivia knowledge, asks her to be his Phone a Friend when he goes on TV quiz show 'Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?' but unfortunately she gets flustered when he asks for a date on live TV and makes a fool of herself. Nonetheless Roy and Jen plan to take their dates to dinner at a smart restaurant but, due to a mix-up over names, go to an inferior joint and the dates walk out on them. Written by don @ minifie-1
