In "Very Much Like a Nightmare," an employee falls asleep at his desk and wakes later in the night to discover a robbery in progress.
Toward the end of the day, he decides to take one of his little pills to help him wake up, but instead, he nods off to sleep at his desk. When he wakes, he is in the pitch black silence of an empty office...and he isn't the only one working late.
