SynopsisEdit

Disguised as a doctor and nurse, Archer and Lana take twenty kilos of cocaine, hidden in plaster covering Pam's entire body, to a deal with an unknown buyer.

PlotEdit

The ISIS team attempts to sell 20 kilos of cocaine to one of Malory's contacts. The contact turns out to be Ramon Limon (whom Archer met and tried to woo in Honeypot). In order to transport the cocaine to Florida, Krieger devises a way to form it into a full body plaster cast for Pam. Pam ends up eating pounds of the cocaine while Archer nurses a head wound leaving Lana to ensure the success of the mission.
