  • Episode Description
  • When an angry Mr. Bell throws a bunch of wadded-up papers at Drew and Mimi, they discover a secret memo announcing that a Dutch group plans to buy the store. Winfred-Louder has been struggling, so they assume that the Dutch want to fire everyone and build something else on the property. The gang goes to a small business expo and meets a man who sells equipment for home breweries. Everyone agrees to invest money in the venture, and Drew decides to take a chance and use his house to acquire a loan. He fears that he is doomed when they cannot come up with an idea. Lewis stays awake by drinking coffee between each beer tasting, and comments favorably on the taste. They decide to brew a coffee-flavored beer, which Oswald names Buzz Beer. A representative of the Dutch, Mr. Van Houten, visits the store and says that they are not firing anyone below management. They will decide who to keep from management on a case-by-case basis. He is impressed with Drew and asks him to stay. Mr. Bell is the only person who gets fired.moreless

    • Lisa: Alright, I've got it. Now, I'm not a marketing genius but I've come up with a container for our beer. What is more trustworthy, warm and familiar, than... a milk carton. Drew: Oh, I'm gonna lose my house. Lisa: They put everything in milk cartons. Orange juice, candy, pancake butter... And it's recyclable. Drew: But it's a milk carton. Little kids can't read. Hey, can Timmy come out and play? No, I'm sorry honey, he just had a bowl of cereal and he's hammered.

    • Mr. Bell: Just to let you know, Carey, you shake hands like a little Girl Scout.

    • Oswald: If you'd bothered to swallow that, you would have realized it had absolutely no aftertaste.

    • Mr. Bell: What's the matter, Carey? You act like you've never seen me before.

    • Jay: Coffee and beer together? I gotta pee just thinking about it!
