The Last Day of Pharmacies is the second episode of Season 7, which premieres Wednesday, April 3 at 8:00 p.m.
In the episode, Sarah (Anna Faris) goes to a pharmacy with her sister (Lana Parrilla), who is taking an allergy medication and the pharmacy employee (Sam Esmail) is concerned about how to handle the allergy patient.
Sarah and the employee discuss how to deal with allergies.
“We have an allergy patient who is being treated in a different way than any other patient that I’ve dealt with in the past,” Esmail tells Sarah.
“It’s the first time I’ve ever heard of an allergy being treated like this.”
When the employee says that this person might not be allergic to the medication, Sarah is surprised.
“I think I have to do something about this,” she says.
Esmail responds by telling her that if she wants to be taken seriously, she’s going to have to treat it like a doctor’s appointment.
Sarah gets her first look at the medication that she’ll need in the next episode, when she meets an older woman (Jill Wagner) in the pharmacy.
The woman is worried that her daughter is taking the allergy medication, but she says that she’s only been there once, and the symptoms are so minor that it shouldn’t affect her.
The elderly woman has a friend who’s also taking the medication.
The friend tells the elderly woman that she can take the medication herself.
The elderly woman takes the medication for her daughter.
The pharmacy employee tells Sarah that the patient who has been taking the medicine has no allergies.
The employee tells her that it will take some time for her to get used to having someone taking her medication for a second time.
When she asks about the allergy, the woman says that it’s been taking her for six months.
“So I’m not sure if it’s allergies or a side effect,” the employee responds.
“Maybe it’s the medication.”
The elderly man in the shop tells Sarah about his friend who took the medication and tells her the story of the older woman.
“That’s when I decided to take my daughter,” the elderly man tells Sarah, which is interesting because he says that he’s never seen a patient in the office who’s taking the drug.
He adds that he wants to help the older person and that he would take the patient’s medication himself.
Sarah is impressed by the elderly lady and the woman, but when the pharmacy worker tells her about how the elderly patient has allergies, Sarah becomes even more impressed.
“If she’s allergic, why does she have to take this medication?” she asks.
The next morning, the patient tells Sarah her allergies.
She’s taken the medication in the last two weeks and is taking it again today.
The employee asks the elderly women if they can take a sample of the medication so that she knows what the reaction is to it.
“What if I give the patient the medicine and then the nurse comes and I’m taking her home?” the elderly patients asks.
“How do I know that I don’t have an allergic reaction?”
The elderly lady takes a sip of the medicine.
“When you’re taking the aspirin, the aspirin takes three minutes to get in your system,” the lady says.
“But when you’re doing the medication you take a whole lot longer.
So I think the medication is making my skin crawl.”
She also takes a look at herself and says that her skin is feeling hot.
She says that, “I feel like I’m having a seizure,” and the patient asks if she’s okay.
“No,” she tells her.
She then takes another sip of her medicine.
The patient says that the skin is getting “cold.”
The elderly lady tells her, “No, I feel good.
It’s just not a good feeling.”
When Sarah asks the patient if she feels better, the elderly person tells her “No.”
She takes another shot of her medication.
“This is really good,” she exclaims.
“Not like this, but this is better.”
She then takes a sample.
The sample is different from the one that she took last time.
“You see the difference?” the nurse asks.
The patient says, “Oh, yeah, you know, it’s different.”
When she takes the sample, the nurse says, in a voice that’s so soothing, “That means it’s probably not an allergy,” and tells the patient that it could be a reaction to the new medication.
When the nurse returns to her office, she tells the woman that the elderly gentleman took her medicine the first day, and that she didn’t feel the same reaction the second time she took it.
When the elderly doctor in the clinic asks if the elderly people take the medications for the same reasons as her, the patients response is, “They don’t.”
The physician in the hospital tells Sarah to get an allergy test
