Episode guide

The End of the Line is the ninth and final episode of the second season of Coupling. It aired on the 29 October, 2001.


Both Susan and Steve are getting on each other's nerves; Susan always asking Steve where he's going at the slightest movement and Steve's not making any decisions. While Susan is having issues with her new French Client, Giselle, a man starts hitting on her, thinking she is French, Susan goes along with it, instead of telling him that she is not French. When she tries to remember Steve's phone number (which is later found out because Jeff and Susan accidentally took each other's similar phones), she accidentally calls Bruce's Bar and Grill, a place next to Susan's bar, which is run by Dick Darlingtion, an Australian. Susan has an obsession with Australians so she is shocked that a bar is named after her, which was a sign that it was time to get out of town during her visit to Australia. Meanwhile, Steve has given his number to a girl at the bar by mistake and pretends to be Dick Darlington on the phone to avoid talking to her. Susan calls as a French woman, to keep up the illusion to the man that she is French and that she has a boyfriend, and a weird conversation takes place. Julia calls Jeff and pretends to be French and threatens to spank him for fun. This is answered by Susan and that's where the confusion begins. Finally everything it out in the open and, as everybody claims to be Dick Darlingtion or Giselle, the girl from the bar calls. Everybody hears her conversation with Steve on speaker phone and Susan breaks up with him.
