Storyline

Bob Hartley resists his therapy group booting out a caustic patient, when he doesn't show up with the brain cake at their birthday party for Bob. That's only part of Dr. Bob's bad day, but it gets worse when Emily isn't sufficiently sympathetic. To unload his anger, Bob uses reverse psychology on the often-missing Mr. Gianelli by calling him, shouting that he's out of the group, plus fired as a client. Bob expects the contrary Mr. Gianelli to return to group, contrite for his disruptive behavior. But before he can, Mr. Gianelli, a fruit vendor, is crushed to death by a load of vegetables. Written by David Stevens
