The Drugs Do Work is the two-hundred thirty-first webisode in the KateModern video series. It is also the seventy-sixth video of season two.


(A white plate against an orange background is seen. A red pill is laying in the middle of the plate. Pills appear underneath the pill in the middle, making a smile and eye, and it eventually transforms into a dog's face. The face turns back into a regular smiling face and brown pills circle around the eyes. Yellow pills appear above the eyes to make eyebrows and hair. The face transforms into a frowning face, which cries blue caplets.)

(Cut the pills forming circles, which move. The word "blood" is spelled out in pills, followed by the word "Hoo", the word "dead", and finally the word "Evil". The pill forming the bottom of the "i" breaks, spilling black powder onto the plate. Cut to the plate covered in the black powder, with the Hymn of One symbol formed out of pills on it. The symbol disappears and the word "RIP" forms in the powder, which is then covered with red pills. Cut to the word ""Murder" written in the powder, which is then underlined with red pills.)

(Red and green pills form a giant pill, which breaks, spilling white pills from it. The pills from a cross. Cut to a glass standing on the table, which is slowly filled with pink liquid. A straw appears in the glass and the liquid disappears. Cut to a Barbie doll sitting next to the glass, now filled with yellow liquid, with the word "DRUGS" written on it. The Barbie holds up a pill and falls backward as the words "or DEATH" appear on the glass. The glass comes closer to the camera. Cut to the Barbie's head, which has fallen off. Pills appear near her and red pills spill from her neck. Cut to the Barbie doll in front of a mirror, holding a green pill up. The pill turns to red in her hand. Cut to numerous pills, sorted by type, on the table. The music stops as the video cuts to Lauren sitting at the table.)

Lauren: So this is it for me. Sentenced to a lifetime of pill-popping. Don't get me wrong, I'm so grateful to Charlie for sorting me out. I mean... Well, it's not like I've got a choice, is it? God knows what I'd have done without her. (Looks at the pills on the table and picks up a white one.) What is it about these pills that can make me better? They just look like chalk. (Puts the pill down and picks up a red one.) Or Skittles. How do these keep me alive?

(Lauren puts the red pill back. She stands up and picks up the camera. She leans back onto a pillow on the couch.)

I miss my sister. I don't even know if she's definitely... you know. I hate thinking about her with that psycho Terrence. Who knows what he did to her?

(Lauren looks around and sighs, looking like she's about to cry. She gets angry and sits up.)

Well, he ain't gonna get away with it, I can tell you that! I may look like a midget, but I can look after meself, don't you worry! Him and those Order wankers ain't gonna know what's hit 'em. So I've got to be prepared.

(Lauren leans over and picks a red see-through pill from the table.)

'Cause as long as I'm taking these, means I'm trait positive, so I guess I'm gonna see them freaks one way or another. But they ain't gonna get their hands on my blood!

(Lauren shoves the pill in her mouth and swallows it with water from the glass. She leans over to pick up a white pill and swallows it.)
