Girlfriend is the fourth episode of the first series of The Inbetweeners. It first aired on May 15th, 2008 on E4.


The boys somehow end up at a cool party and - even more shockingly - Will ends up chatting to Charlotte "Big Jugs" Hinchcliffe, an attractive older school mate who is known for her promiscuous ways. They begin kissing in a bedroom, but the experience is short-lived as Charlotte's ex-boyfriend (and Will's biggest antagonist), Mark Donovan, interrupts and fails to win Charlotte back.

The next day Will lies and brags to Charlotte about how many girls he has had sex with, and she suggests they meet up again for more than just a kiss. Will tells his friends about this, but Simon tells Will that Charlotte is obviously just using him to get back at Mark - leading to Will storming off. Friday comes and Will and Charlotte engage in unsuccessful "intercourse", with the latter being let down by the experience.

Will however still believes Charlotte is his girlfriend and tells geeky Big John about their relationship. After Neil wins an unwanted date with Susie, an extremely clever yet somewhat awkward student, at the school's charity Blind Date, Will is then dumped in front of the school when Charlotte takes part in it in an effort to find a boy "who knows what he's doing". Will is humiliated and he and his friends make up and agree to spy on Neil during his date with Susie.

In a sub-plot, Jay gets teased by the rest of the boys for having a friend outside of the group and even a special goodbye gesture of two thumbs up, leading to him finding this friend's car and jumping repeatedly on the bonnet, screaming that he's not his friend, whilst Neil and Simon look on in shock.
