He's very good at what he does, he likes his job and he makes a great living. The other younger employees think he's a little strange, and maybe he is. He would be the first to admit his interests on are the morbid side. One night Lydia, the skittish young cashier, is forced to work back in the pharmacy with Tanner.

Trivia

The story was spurred by screenwriter Jan Wilson reading about mercy killer Efren Saldivar who killed patients while working as a respiratory therapist at Glendale Adventist Hospital in Los Angeles. Even after going to the police station and confessing to the police of the murders they initially had to let him walk away because there was no evidence of a crime since the patients had been thought to have died of complications from their illnesses and by this time had been buried or cremated for years.

Quotes

Marty: I know I helped these people. It was for their own good. But there WAS something in it for me. An unexpected gift. I knew that would be their last meal, their last glass of wine. To know all evening long that I was watching their last day on earth was incredible. I was watching a secret unfold. It was... empowering.
