#2. I've Seen Most Parts of Your Body Now - [00:05:01]

Steve thinks Ricky is more annoying now, maybe because of the hot weather. Some writing anecdotes about Ricky falling asleep in their office and taking his shirt off. Karl wants to do some more features and bought a copy of The Guinness Book of World Records. Karl doesn't want to work with Ricky anymore but Suzanne says they need a new kitchen. Steve annoys Karl in different ways. Karl saw a sign that said, "An Absurd Idea is Often a Great Idea" (Einstein). Karl vs. Steve.


#3. You Can Be Sick On My Leg After - [00:11:45]

Ricky wants Karl to stop being grumpy but neither he nor Steve are going to change. Karl wants to know how The Office ever got on telly. Songs of Phrase coming up. Ricky and Steve chat about annoying worlds records and Karl makes a proper joke. Ricky and Steve get the idea of making Karl try to beat the world record of burger stuffing.

#4. Five Should Be Enough - [00:19:16]

Steve's on the phone whilst at the McDonalds in Leicester Square. Five regular hamburgers costs £3.45 and the cashier wishes Karl good luck.



#5. Burgers - [00:20:59]

The burgers are now in-studio. Karl might have a wheat allergy but starts the attempt. The link ends with Ricky screaming and Steve taking the cheerleader role.


#6. Me Head is Swelling a Bit - [00:22:57]

Ricky is disappointed in Karl, who couldn't even get one whole burger in. Another attempt has Ricky in hysterics with laughing and yelling. Ricky and Steve show some compassion when Karl begins to get sick. Shall we try grapes?


#7. Grapes - [00:25:36]

The White Stripes album jumped twice. Karl attempts to beat Matt Hand, the UK grape stuffing champion. Karl has to push the button then immediately start stuffing.



#8. I'm Not Happy With That - [00:27:52]

Link opens with a distant Ricky yelling at Karl. Steve's annoyed that he's making Karl laugh. Karl finishes and was annoyed with Ricky standing over him, and with trying to produce a radio show whilst doing that. There are 88 grapes left. Karl defends himself and reminds them of the Mr Freeze incident. Ricky was reminded of Pac-Man. Discussion of board games that aren't necessary ("New from Mattel - a stick!").


#9. It's a World Famous Phrase - [00:33:00]

Steve reads off the prizes which include a T-shirt, a disc without a case, some DVDs, etc. Songs of Phrase this week is "My neighbour had a horse in a house". Steve thinks it's the end of Songs of Phrase.


#10. Sorry, Paul Ince - [00:37:02]

Karl slags off the tracks and Ricky continues knocking Karl down. Bubble from Big Brother failed. Ricky's and Steve have been annoying Karl and Karl kicks Steve off his pub quiz team. Steve's mad because he's taking the brunt of the anger when it was Ricky who Karl should be mad at. Ricky spits out tea on the Guinness book and finds the fastest coconut husker entry. Karl's mad about the tea.


Coming Up

#11. This is the End of This - [00:42:46]

Steve is disappointed about being off the pub quiz team, but he'd been planning a coup anyway. Ricky thinks Songs of Phrase is rubbish and gives Karl a hard time about the grapes again. Competition answers and winners. Time for Monkey News about a monkey couple who got married but haven't come back from their honeymoon yet. Ricky is livid while Steve stays calm.


#12. If You Can be Bothered - [00:48:47]

They're late but Ricky makes Karl play his Karl in a Film clip from Silence of the Lambs. There's a VHS copy available for the winner.


#13. Sick of It - [00:52:05]

This is not worth 30 quid for Karl. Film competition winner. Steve sides with Karl for once, but Karl won't let him back on the team.
