Bunk Off is the second episode of the first series of The Inbetweeners. It first aired on May 1st, 2008 on E4.


The episode opens with Will, Simon, Jay and Neil playing Frisbee in the park. While trying to impress Carli, Will (accidentally) throws the Frisbee at a disabled woman in a wheelchair. The four boys end out being chased away from Donovan.

The next day, Will and Simon meet up and faking (poorly) to Mr. Gilbert that they are both ill. They meet up with Jay and Neil, and Will manages to buy them all alcohol despite being underage. They head back to Neil's house and begin drinking. To their surprise, Neil's dad walks in but Will, who is drunk, bullies Neil's dad about his alleged homosexuality. Neil's dad is furious and the boys are thrown out.

Simon then realises he loves his childhood friend Carli D'Amato and is desperate to tell her. They go round to Carli's house and, after some convincing from Will and Jay, he sprays "I love Carli D'Amato" on her driveway in spray paint, only to be embarrassed when Carli and her friends turn up. However, when Carli sees Simon's friends laughing at him for his elaborate gesture she invites him to her house where he gets drunk and ends up throwing up on her little brother.

The episode ends the next day at school when Mr. Gilbert explains that as Sixth Former's they are no longer under any legal obligation to attend school and that they can waste their time if they want to, but with Simon and Will pretending to be poorly, they are told that it is fraud and end up outside the headteacher's office.
