Storyline

Mary is feeling lousy since she has a case of insomnia despite she being so tired. The insomnia in turn is making her even more tired, which makes her fall asleep at the most inappropriate of times, such as at work. So Mary decides to get medical help, her doctor who prescribes a sleeping pill. The miracle drug does the trick, but at what cost? Lou believes that cost is too high, which is Mary's addiction to that pill, a barbiturate. Mary doesn't think she's addicted until she tries to fall asleep at night without the pill. Lou will do whatever he can to help Mary beat this addiction while still getting her to get a full night sleep. Meanwhile, Murray's daughter Bonnie, a journalism student, asks her dad for favor: get Ted to make a presentation to her journalism class. Ted won't do it unless he gets something in return, which may be too high a price for Murray to pay: stop insulting him. Written by Huggo
