"It's a drug called Selectra, doc. I think it'll help me get over the hump." From what we've seen of its effects so far, it also seems like it'll help a great deal with the hump, har har har. Tommy walks the streets, talking on his cell phone to his doctor. In a split screen, because this is suddenly "The Telephone Hour" with Tommy in the role of Harvey Johnson, Tommy's doctor responds that he knows the drug, prescribes it often, and rarely finds any deleterious side effects. Tommy then assumes that doc can hook him up, but Tommy has another chemically-imbalanced think coming: "Not a chance. The last time you were here, you told me to kiss your white Irish ass." Oooh, that's the kind of shit you don't want showing up in your chart. Tommy's call ends with his doctor hanging up on him, which I have to say is pretty raw. But it proved a timely opportunity for Tommy to stare around after the call is terminated and see a kid staring at him. A kid who the "next on" tease at the end of this episode tells us is a very important kid. So, fans of foreshadowing, you have been warned.
