“Why are you texting Tunie?” – Jackie

After Zoey told her that “Cantasha” (or Candace and Natasha, a mother who shows up at the hospital and always complains that her daughter can’t breathe well enough while eating Cheetos) were back in the hospital for no reason, Jackie darted into the pharmacy and asked Eddie why he was texting her sister in law. Eddie said he was simply responding to the texts she sent him. Eddie reminded her that just because she cheated on her husband with him didn’t mean she could tell him which members of her extended family he could and could not date. Jackie acknowledged his statement, but said he should be careful with Tunie anyway because she spent all of the previous night trying to hack into her ex-boyfriend The Pilot’s email. Eddie offered Jackie a Valium after perceiving “an edge” that was caused over he thought of him dating other people, Jackie declined and said there was no “edge” to speak of.

“You are going to stand, give me a hug, slip it in my pocket and sit.” – Jackie’s drug counselor

On her break, Jackie went to the local diner to meet her “drug counselor” who supplies her with pills so she’ll hit her rock bottom faster. She brought $200 with her and hoped she could just give him the money and then take off with a new stash, but instead, the guy sat her down and presented her with what was supposed to be someone’s chip for achieving 30 days of sobriety. The guy explained he had planned to give it to her at a meeting, but she relapsed and died before he could and so he was now giving it to Jackie. Jackie looked confused because she wasn’t anywhere near 30 days of sobriety (nor did she want to be), but the guy told her to lift the false bottom – and inside it, she found pills.
