At the start of Episode 6, “Neighbors and Friends”, Original Miles (Paul Rudd) is doing his very best to work with Kate, who is being purposefully unemotional about the scenario, with a light tone, but you can tell she is becoming disinterested in her husband. Their marriage is on a tilt, with plenty of work for Miles to fix what he has done.
He gets a random call from the Fertility Clinic, and he finally agrees to go in — awkward as always, Miles W–ks into a cup and provides it for analysis. I wonder if it’s too late to patch things up.
And then Miles has this terrible idea to attend the vote for the telecom’s contract. The farmers who attend, including Ray, are not amused by the Hillston marketing materials, claiming its sale c–p. Original Miles who has dressed so no-one recognizes him from the company, infiltrates the farmer community and discusses a made-up story about his family, farms and the foreign telecom industry, persuading them to vote. The competitor gets a whiff of what he’s doing, but Hillston wins anyway.
The next morning, Original Miles gets a call from a colleague asking where he has been for the last week — New Miles has not shown up at work. He also receives a delivery from the Hillston company thanking him for his hard work — they send him a dead pig, claiming it’s the best pork around.
Living with Yourself Season 1, Episode 6, “Neighbors and Friends” closes with Original Miles heading out to his car, and when he looks in his rearview mirror he sees New Miles — as he gets out, someone puts a black cover over his head.
