Friendface is the fifth episode of the third series of The IT Crowd.

Plot Edit

The IT crowd joins the social network Friendface which enables Jen to reconnect with an old friend. Of course she has to make up an alternative persona because her real life is pitiful. But then she has to make it real for her school reunion.

Jen signs up with social network site Friendface, through which she is invited to a school reunion. Fearing that she will be the only singleton present she asks Roy to pose as her husband but, also through Friendface, he has met Alison, an old flame, who still carries a torch for him, so Moss prepares to fill in instead. Roy panics when Alison tells him she still loves him and, as a way out, lies that he has a girlfriend - Jen. This leads to both Moss and Roy fighting over who should be Jen's escort but finally leaving her to go to the reunion alone.

Trivia Edit

  • Moss names his children Zenith and Quasar. Zenith is the point directly above a given location and a Quasar is a very luminous galaxy. They are also brand names of televisions sold in the US.
  • This episode marks Lewis MacLeod's second appearance in the IT Crowd as the narrator. He also appeared in Tramps Like Us for the opening narration and again appears in the next episode Calendar Geeks as the narrator for the 'boss-eyedness' video presentation.
  • Roy likens his ex-girlfriend Allison to The Joker a lot, due to their similar use of excessive, smeared make up.
  • The artwork for the Friendface commercial was designed by Zoe Matzko, her website can be found here, original sketches for the Friendface artwork can also be found. Zoe also produced the gaming-style design for the IT Crowd DVD Menus.
  • The white, light-up box that Roy is banging his head listening to is most likely a Tenori-on, an electronic musical instrument.
