  • Episode Description
  • Lisa moves in with Drew, bringing an assortment of pets that includes a toilet-trained cat. They begin to really get on each other's nerves, and Drew goes to great lengths to avoid going home at night. Jay tells Drew that he is considering an offer to run a Dairy Queen in Minnesota with his brother. Kate comes to believe that Jay is going to propose, and realizes that she must reject him. She is bewildered when Jay simply tells her that he is moving and does not even ask her to come with him. Drew tries to console the furious Kate. He drives around with her all night and eats french fries. He finally goes home to find a note from Lisa saying that she has realized that Drew is uncomfortable and has gone to stay with a friend. He dances around to celebrate the fact that he is alone, unaware that Lisa hasn't left yet. She confesses that she is also unhappy, and they have an amicable break-up. She lets him keep her handicapped dog, Speedy. Drew drives Kate around as she breaks the windows of Jay and every other person who has ever committed wrong against her.moreless

  • Quotes (4)

    • Mimi: I guess it's not going real well with Lisa or you wouldn't be hanging out alone in a bar. Drew: Look, I just came in to have a beer or two and then I'm gonna go home. Mimi: She's the one that should be tipping a few before battling the great white!

    • (Kate runs out of Oswald and Lewis's bathroom) Kate: AHHHHH! There's a dead cockroach on a stick in there! Oswald: That's a warning for all of the other cockroaches.

    • (Kate heads into Lewis and Oswald's bathroom) Kate: Lewis! Lewis: The seat's hanging on the wall!

    • (Drew and Lisa just broke up and she is about to leave) Drew: Hey Lisa, do you think that I could keep Speedy? Lisa: Of course. Wait, is that the whole reason you went out with me? Drew: Yeah. You see, most guys will go after the crippled dog to get to the girl. Me, on the other hand... (the two head out the door)
