Sundays @ 4pm

Things get a bit awkward when, after meeting Lisa on a sex website, Mark accidently gets trapped in an apartment with three women and a drag queen. With ecstacy and alcohol in his system Mark tries to understand the way the world moves around him. Lisa's mystery of a husband is possibly on his way, Anne was just fired for sleeping with her boss' brother, Flora was bitten at work today, and Cooper just wants to keep everyone calm, collected, and relatively unhurt. Injurious sex, misguided love, and experimental governmental drugs force this night off the rails.
