Storyline

Plot Summary

An asbestos abatement crew wins the bid for an abandoned insane asylum. What should be a straightforward, if rather rushed, job, is complicated by the personal histories of the crew. In particular, Hank is dating Phil's old girlfriend, and Gordon's new baby seems to be unnerving him more than should be expected. Things get more complicated as would-be lawyer Mike plays the tapes from a former patient with multiple personalities, including the mysterious Simon who does not appear until Session 9, and as Hank disappears after finding some old coins.

Trivia Behind the tunnel with the rubber gloves, the cast and crew signed the wall. Brad Anderson wrote: "We did ASBESTOS we could!" See more »
Goofs When Gordon is sitting in his van outside his house looking at the christening photographs, we can see in the background his wife Wendy and their daughter Emma both in the garden. We then cut to the garden and see Wendy picking up Emma and carrying her into the house. We then cut back to Gordon in his van looking at the photographs, just before he leans over to pick up his bag and leave the van you can clearly see Wendy through the window carrying Emma into the house for a second time.

Quotes Phil: He was a liability. I mean, he brought it on himself... Didn't he? I mean, it's typical. Typical Henry: The wrong place, at the wrong time.
Gordon: You did this?
Phil: Gordon! I need you to wake up, and take a really, *really* good look at him... You know what I wouldn't do? I wouldn't tell anybody about this, because if they find out about Hank, they're going to find out about the others.
