We’re back with another episode of Tom’s Anatomy as Tom is forced to confront his greatest enemy yet; the Pharmaceutical Industry! I’m calling it now; dude’s a total goner by the second act. The episode begins with a magical scene of Tom and some beautiful lady gallivanting in a world of rainbows and unicorns; sharing moments of happiness that clearly cannot last because this is Tom and everything that’s great in his life eventually turns to garbage. Now you can probably surmise form the inclusion of rainbows and unicorns that this is all one big dream sequence, but where things start to turn is when Tom has a… a-hem… accident in his sleep. No, not number one or even number two… number three. Well that’s not necessarily a BAD thing, right? I mean sure, it’s inconvenient to have to wash the sheets, but a good time is still a good time, right? Well… not quite. You see, the moment he… finishes, he’s violently woken up as the act seems to have caused him a great deal of pain as well as the condemnation of his lovely wife Joy who by the way wasn’t the woman in his dream. These abrupt interruptions are also wreaking havoc on Tom’s sleep schedule to the point that when he visits The Mayor the next day, he ends up collapsing right there on the floor before he can even propose his latest get rich quick scheme. The good news is that Tom wakes up in a hospital bed instead of The Mayor’s basement or his underground lair beneath his office. The bad news? Well it looks like Tom’s issues are not just a lack of sleep and a few uncomfortable wet dreams.
