"Gerald" - Ben and Gerald live in a tenement. Gerald thinks Ben is too old to have an imaginary friend, but Ben is reluctant to take that first step to his own independence. How does an imaginary friend convince an adolescent that he doesn't need him anymore and needs to go out and find the equally wonderful experiences of real life?

"The Accomplice" - Morgan, the night guard of a Boston house of art, helps his friends Will and Chuck rob priceless paintings. He is going to live the high life and be part of the art heist of the century. Riches beyond his wildest imagination await him after this night. But Will and Chuck may have other plans.

"Lifetime Guarantee" - Jack and Beth meet up at a seedy motel for a secret tryst. They like to commit adultery and have fun doing it. What kinds of dirty deeds take place? How will their spouses react? And why are they so riled up on this tryst than any other in their past?

"The Security Guard" - Prudence, a seventy-five-year-old secretary working at her local church's parish center. She is given a very peculiar assignment. Against her own common sense but with a responsibility to do her job, she is thrust into the world of protecting the innocent from harm using nothing but her clipboard, her ingenuity and her feelings that absurdity is all around her.

"Morey's Deli" - Morey is a troll from the Slide, a place where elves, dwarves, and trolls came over into the human world. Morey has established himself as a deli owner and is quite proud of earning an honest living. He's not your faerie tale troll. He just wants to have a day where nothing goes wrong. Is that too much to ask?
