Friendface is the fifth episode of the third series of The IT Crowd.


The IT crowd joins the social network Friendface which enables Jen to reconnect with an old friend. Of course she has to make up an alternative persona because her real life is pitiful. But then she has to make it real for her school reunion.

Jen signs up with social network site Friendface, through which she is invited to a school reunion by her old friend Delina. After hearing about her and all of Jen's other friends successful lives, she panics and tells Delina about her job as Head of IT. Fearing that she will be the only singleton present, she asks Roy to pose as her husband but, also through Friendface, he has met Alison, an old flame, who still carries a torch for him, so Moss prepares to fill in instead. Jen quickly steals the show with her "perfect" persona, with Moss backing her up on many subjects, leading to Moss bonding with Delina's husband Terry. Douglas then shows up uninvited, saying that he had heard about the party on Friendface. Roy panics when Alison tells him she still loves him through a poem and, as a way out, lies that he has a girlfriend - Jen. This leads to a dramatic scene where Roy insults Jen, leading to Moss slapping him. After this, the two boys head outside but run off. Jen follows soon after. At the end of the episode, Douglas reveals to Terry that he has been sleeping with Delina, causing Terry to punch him. Douglas (now sporting two black eyes) spots a lonely Alison and instantly chats her up.
