Episode Summary

A woman on her first day at her new job is threatened by a man who says he's going to kill her. She reports it to her boss. / An elderly woman takes her friend to meet Eli, who is her therapist. He does a treatment where he slaps a woman in the face to make her feel better and make their skin look better. / A few guys are sitting around doing the Supercool and watching throwing star cartoons. One of the guys girlfriend comes home and complains that she is having problems at work. To help her, they agree to pretend to be the chef at her workplace so she can practice venting her problems to him. It gets out of hand when the guys take their characters too far. / Trotter is putting helmets on the other UCB members to see what they are dreaming. / Back at the office, the guy who threatened to kill the woman apologizes and offers to buy her a smoothie as an apology. Then right after, he once again threatens to kill her. She goes to tell her boss but he is no help once again. / Back at Eli's place, he gives therapy to a woman by slapping her face with meat. / A man at a gym meets a crazy guy who works out "for freedom". He joins him in his workout which includes running around, swimming, and Russian Roulette. Luckily they both live, but the next guy isn't as lucky. / Adair dreams of getting into Antoine's head and finding out he really is a cyborg. Antoine sees this dream on the monitor and as usual, denies it. / The guy from the office who threatened to kill the woman shows up at anger management. The therapist looks for a group of people that the guy can center his anger on. They decide on a nomadic tribe from the arctic that wears fur coats. / The woman in the office goes into her boss's office only to find out the angry man got promoted and now he's her boss. He apologizes once again, but this time in a calm manner he tells her he will still kill her. / Back at Eli's therapy, many elderly women in cages wait for their turn for the treatment. When the first woman goes up, Eli puts a fur coat on her as part of the treatment. The angry guy from the office (who now works for Eli) sees this and mistakes her for one of the Nomadic tribe members he hates and threatens to kill her. Then the crazy workout "for freedom" guy comes in, sees the women waiting in cages and starts letting them out, and leading them to escape through the window. Later, it turns out this was all a dream that Antoine was dreaming and the other UCB members are watching on the monitor.moreless
