It's A Terrible Life

Sam: I just can't shake this feeling like I... like I don't belong here. You know what I mean? Like I should do something more than sit in a cubicle.
Dean: I think most people who work in a cubicle feel that same way.

Written by Sera Gamble.

Directed by James L. Conway.

Air Date: March 26, 2009.

Dean and Sam are living very normal and separate lives. Dean awakens to find himself in an alternate reality in which he is a Wall Street tycoon who enjoys health drinks and listens to news radio instead of rock stations. He works at a company called Sandover Bridge & Iron Company, alongside Sam, who's in Tech Support. It seems as if the two do not know each other. Neither has memories of their previous lives.

However, after co-workers start committing suicide at an alarming rate, the two find themselves working side by side to solve the murders.
