Bergman, Lysodren,

because sometimes

cancer comes back.

And for mailman Arnold

Morello, Valtrex,

to treat his freshly acquired

case of genital herpes,

an affliction he most certainly

did not catch from his wife.

It's going to be okay.

It's just... It's all very complicated. I

mean, I'd never been to Atlantic City before.

Just be diligent about

the medication.

You'll feel better before

you know it, okay?

- All right.

- Hang in there.

Nice shorts, man. Super shorts.

What the hell is that guy on, huh?

- That's confidential.

- No, I know what it is.

Anti-depressants, I bet, right?

Postal worker, the end of his

rope, seconds away from this.

Look at all blood!


But then, look, he saves

one for himself.

Just do me a favour.

Just don't wander off.

I got a new batch of deliveries

coming in for you soon.

I'm so happy you brought this up,

'cause I would have totally

forgot and that's my fault.

- I know I said I could work till late tonight...

- Yeah.

but my man Rio, he scored

tickets to Widespread tonight.

Get outta here. I know, it's insane.

So I gotta jet out way early.



But you promise to get all the

deliveries done before you go, right?

- Stop it. You have my word.

- Okay.

Hi, honey! Yeah, I'm gonna be late.

Yeah. Noah. It's fine.

Just grab dinner without me.

I'll get dinner somewhere. Yeah.

Something healthy.

I'll see you later, okay? Bye.

Roberts, Roberts, Roberts, Roberts.


I hate rich people.




You must be...

You must be Mrs Roberts?

Would you step inside?

It's a little chilly out here.



Nice place.

Like I said, it's a little chilly.

I'll get you sorted out

and I'll be on my way.

You probably think I'm

some kind of junkie, huh?

Well, it's not my business
