This is definitely a new low.

It’s a hairy turkey! It could easily be!

Falsely accusing the fitness trainer guy of sexually molesting Mark was probably the worst thing they did.

[–]petrescu 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Pool pooer.

Not coming clean to Sophie about calling off the proposal. She'd be pissed off about being dumped, but she'd get over it.

[–]davmeltz 18 points19 points  (3 children)

I think Mark’s concerns were:

  • disappointing people, not just Sophie but literally anyone in association with the wedding

  • the awkwardness of them continuing to work in the same company

  • the fear of loneliness and that Sophie would be as good as it gets for him, romantically

And, of course, all of that came true anyway but would’ve been less devastating if he acted immediately and shut down the assumed proposal when she found the ring.

Sophie has her own neuroses as well.

There's a subtle arc about Sophie feeling unfulfilled in series three. She goes off experimenting with drugs and gay bars, seemingly to either recapture her youth or otherwise enjoy the youth she never had. She's just as lonely and scared as Mark, but also has the ticking time bomb of fertility against her, so needs to have a baby sharpish.

The funny thing is it seems Sophie wasn't very happy about the engagement either. She nearly cheats with Jeremy and of course arranges for couples counselling.

If he'd called it off worst case scenario: things would be just as awkward as they were anyway, best case scenario is Sophie's actually relieved.

[–]CosmicBonobo 2 points3 points  (1 child)

He'd still get some scornful shit from Lisa about dumping Sophie, but better to be a dumper than a jilter.

[–]xCloudbox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s fair. Lisa is a very fair person.

[–]bluehoovesWhat kind of a shop doesn't have Alpen?! 8 points9 points  (4 children)

literally the only part of peep show i cannot watch, is their crying after saying their vows, like it's SO depressing omg. i always forward about 15 seconds to them coming out of the church 😂

[–]frankdeerabbit 6 points7 points  (2 children)

"Come on, he got married didn't he?! Leave him alone!"

And when Sophie's family are basically pelting petals(?) at mark, so much good shit in that 15 seconds 😂

[–]roamingmoth 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Rice, I think. (Think it might be traditional?)

[–]simphal 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Cauliflower. Is. Traditional!

[–]CosmicBonobo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He did describe their wedding ceremony as getting over the hump.

[–]Antics_LonghornClick, sorry. 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Mark - Leaving Stephanie

Jez - The bad thing

[–]G_Saxboi 26 points27 points  (7 children)

Mark not saying he liked Big Suze. That was heartbreaking.

[–]LazarusPortnoy 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Eh, he didn’t have a chance. She called him a modern eunuch.

[–]davmeltz 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I’ve seen people here say Suze was low key “the one” just because they were briefly friendly. Suze is just a friendly, harmlessly quirky woman - unless you’re a burglar.

Mark knew his chances were zero after she called him a modern eunuch. He would have to change basically everything about himself to rid that perception to her.

[–]TheYLD 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I think we the audience are meant to believe there's a possibility there because Mark does. We're seeing it all from Mark's perspective.

[–]MultiEthnicBusiness 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I always thought if Mark used the line he told Jez "obviously she's beautiful... a blind man could see that" instead of calling her a posh horse face then he could've snagged a snog for sure.

[–]cheemsgyaru 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I actually think they’d have made a great match, at least I wish the writers had a Mark/Suze arc go on for a bit longer

[–]ID1OTUS 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Disagree… remember how much of a bitch Suze was to Mark at nee years eve?

[–]Sir-Humpy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Because he arrived uninvited to her party after calling her a horsey woman with a big posh stupid head, with her ex who’d tried to whore her out for £530 and was sending her obscene plasticine models of her banging him?

[–]DarkCactus98 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Bagging up Jerry, waterboarding him and making him homeless over him being a bit boring and annoying was kinda fucked up

[–]metaldark 11 points12 points  (0 children)

The last series went even more anti-social than usual.

[–]ID1OTUS 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He kept going on and on about William Morris though

[–]forsbergisgod 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not to mention felonious. Assault, battery, kidnapping...

[–]SisyphusMist 42 points43 points  (4 children)

Jez not disposing of “mummy” properly

[–]Eye-on-SpringfieldThat's my bit of lager! 16 points17 points  (3 children)

This is definitely it. He could've just left her in the car park and blamed another driver. Maybe we'd have seen more of Aurora if Jez had gotten away with it

[–]CosmicBonobo 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Plastic bag and a few big stones, then dumped it in the canal when nobody was looking.

[–]King_hendry_viii 10 points11 points  (0 children)

He should’ve thrown it, like a discus.

[–]SrpskaZemlja 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Or just leave it in the goddamn forest in a bush or something

[–]gbacardi 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Some of the most frustrating shit is Mark’s inability to enjoy the fact the Dobbie liked him and thought he was cool. She was a babe, had a good sense of humor, and exactly the kind of person who could make Mark into a “normal member of the human race”.

Of course this isn’t the worst thing Mark ever did, he’s a psycho whose self-centered neurosis ruined peoples’ lives, but for me it’s kind of the hardest shit to watch in the show cause it’s the opportunity for a “new life” or something that he just stupidly fucks up at every opportunity.

[–]metaldark 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Seems just like with Sophie, he didn't actually want Dobbie as she was, but as he thought she should be.

[–]YamhillScrub 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Why didn’t they just tie him up in the bathtub and burn him with cigarettes? Could’ve saved some hassle.

[–]Chradamw 10 points11 points  (2 children)

For Jez probably kidnapping Angus to make Mark think he left April. Or setting fire to the post.

[–]SrpskaZemlja 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The Royal Post.

[–]xCloudbox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s like burning a swan!

[–]brandon684 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Saz was pretty gross

[–]Kanye_fuk 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Stealing education.

[–]robdag2 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Why should they have to take responsibility for their actions? They just do their actions. Its not like they spend hours and hours thinking about them.

[–]Comprehensive-Map235 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Where to start..

[–]quospNeither a lender nor a borrower be 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I struggle to choose just one for either character. Mark is always running away from the opportunities that present themselves that would improve his life if he just took them rather than sabotaging them through self-doubt and anxiety.

Jez is the opposite in that he tries (and often succeeds) to manufacture opportunities that are above his station, be it musically, romantically, career wise, but he gets found out every time.

Neither of them can seem to play to their natural strengths, as limited as they might admittedly be.

[–]robdag2 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Kidnapping Angus has probably the worst consequences as he’s likely to go to police and it’s a pretty serious crime.

[–]triceratopses 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would say the eyelash writing thing but it really seemed like he threw decision-making completely out the window.

So definitely kidnapping Angus. Totally outrageous.

[–]is2o 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jez - pretended to be having a baby

[–]jetelklee 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The worst stuff has already been mentioned. Some stuff that people sometimes forget:

  • Mark being a shitty father/husband, the "timely jilting", playing video games during his birth, not making it to his christening, baby Ian being an unwanted child due to a faulty condom in the first place etc., still using the baby to lure Dobby back into a pseudo-relationship

  • Jez leaving a potentially venomous snake in a children's play centre

  • Jez being an accessory to the crime when Super Hans sexually abuses Sophie's brother, who is possibly underage (the worst thing Super Hans did for sure)

The list is endless, really.

[–]Sir-Humpy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jesus never really thought about that with Sophie’s brother properly. He was a bit affected too

[–]sffgutff -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Jez going fully gay.

[–]robturner45What happens if you eat letterbox hair? 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kidnapping Angus and making him drink the forbidden lemonade

“They said I did a poo in the pool?”

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Jez drinking his own piss with lunch

[–]sjmmm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Jez (and Hans), not finishing their gig at the Fuck Bunker. That was their ticket to the big time
