Seems unlikely, given that that line is a kind of salacious joke. Customarily speaking, you see, a man owes a woman breakfast when he's done something that's kept her at his house all night. May's stuffy answer (which is a quote from Live and Let Die, I think - one of the Roger Moore 007 films, anyway) is the sort of answer someone in that position would tend to give.
Mind you, this is James May we're talking about - and Skuld, for that matter - so it's entirely conceivable that what she spent the entire evening at his place doing with him was playing with his Scalextric set. But still. That's the point of the joke - it's ambiguous and might or might not even be salacious. Though it must be admitted that he is rather her sort of chap.
(As an aside, you guys seem to have forgotten - again! - that it doesn't cost money to make new topics for things when the old ones get up past 50. I mention this solely because I'm on very slow dial-up at my grandparents' tonight and it has come back home to me what agony it is to download a long story post with 70-odd comments after it when you're not on your 3-megabit DSL at home. And I'm never really in a position to do that myself because I'm almost always answering a question when I post in mid-thread. :)
