Howard reminds an underwhelmed Daniel about the obesity training course. When Elaine suggests that Howard takes a more pastoral care approach to management, he decides to go with Daniel. At the course, Howard tries his best to boost Daniel’s mood, but to no effect; Daniel makes no attempt to mask his contempt of the course. When course leader Henry tries to get Daniel involved, he explodes, making a speech about the whole of society being on a downward spiral.
Howard is shocked, but thinks his mood is simply dictated by the course and offers to attend in Daniel’s place from now on. Howard is convinced this gesture is enough to have won Daniel round and confidently asks if he’s been having a hard time recently. Daniel shoots him down and they end the session with an even greater wedge between them than before.
