After swallowing the pills, Laurie takes ipecac and begins vomiting immediately. Ipecac takes 15 to 20 minutes to work, as it has to reach the chemoreceptor trigger zone in the lower intestine for it to cause the vomiting. See more »


Laurie Garvey: So is this the part where you call the DSD and shut this operation down?
Nora Durst: [to Matt] Do you remember when we were kids? After Mom and Dad died, when everyone at the church wouldn't take their eyes off us? They'd take us to the movies, and bowling, and putt-putt, just to keep us busy?

The best show no one is watching.
22 May 2017 | by ranchiSee all my reviews

I have been a devotee of this show since the beginning. I have watched it every Sunday for the past three years and I couldn't be any happier with its evolution. The Leftovers is human, touching, meaningful television. And this episode isn't any less. Laurie isn't the character I like the most but this was one of the best episodes of the whole series. The delivery by Amy and the rest of the cast was top tier and the writing and music was on point as usual. I tend to be quite skeptical when it comes to character-centred episodes, but this one made me sympathize with her so much I cried and didn't want the episode to go. But as Laurie said, "We're all gone". So is the show. Two more weeks until the hidden gem that is The Leftovers leaves. Two more weeks until the best show no one is watching departures.
