A Night Out in London is the fourth episode of the second series of The Inbetweeners. It first aired on April 23rd, 2009 on E4.


The episode begins with Jay showing the boys a pornographic video containing scenes of eating faeces and vomit, which they react with in disgust. Will decides the boys need to lose their "saddo" tag and that they should go clubbing in London to kick-start this "new life." Jay and Neil both warm to the idea, but Simon is reluctant to go, stating that his dad will kill him if he drives down to London. He is later persuaded to go after Neil says he has a car and will happily drive the foursome down to the capital, as well as Carli telling him that she and her friend Rachel will also be going on the same night.

As the boys prepare for the night out, Simon is informed that he will have to drive seeing as Neil's car has no engine yet. Still excited by the prospect of going to the same club as Carli, he agrees to drive. When the boys arrive in London, however, things begin to go a little pear-shaped. Simon is attacked by some men from a nearby bus stop after Jay decides to lean out of the window and insult them by shouting "Bus Wankers" as they drive past. Simon has to swap his trainers for a mad tramp's urine-soaked shoes in order to get into the club. As Neil and Jay walk off to find some girls, Will and Simon prepare for their "dates" with Rachel and Carli, respectively. The dates do not go very well, with Rachel smitten by another man, Dean and Carli put off Simon after smelling the urine from his shoes. After Neil is thrown out for "masturbating" in the toilets (he was actually inspecting the cut on his penis he received earlier whilst urinating into a beer can in Simon's car), the boys decide to call it a night, but on the way back to the car, they noticed it has been clamped by an Asian man, who threatens them with a £200 penalty.
