Post Credit Scene

Micky is seen sat in his new limo with a class of champaigne while the bottle cools in a bucket of ice next to him. He is talking to a man sat opposite him whose face cannot be seen. Micky says that he is the first person he has had in there and in fact he hasn't been with anyone for a while so is quite desperate for sex. The camera moves revealing Mr Scott, Carl's teacher who Ian had been dating in the episode. Mr Scott suggests they "make something of it" as he removed his shirt to reveal that he is covered in a thick layer of hair. Micky looks shocked and faintly disgusted as Mr Scott approaches him and begins removing his clothes. Micky holds his arms out, unable to even touch him as he asks if he has homework to mark before pointing out it's a school day tomorrow. However he seems less bothered as Mr Scott appears to be felating him but continues to point out that there are long holidays to plan. The camera cuts to the limo parked outside as Micky is heard saying "go on, get it down ya". As the scene ends loud monkey noises can be heard. This is continuation of the end of the episode where Ian remarks that Mr Scott was as hairy as a gibbon.
