  • Episode Description
  • Kate discovers that someone has marketed another coffee-flavored beer, Cap-Beer-Cino. The man behind the product, Chris Vanderkamp, shows up at the Warsaw to try to sell Cap-Beer-Cino to the bar. He freely admits that he stole the idea from Buzz Beer, but has received assurances from his lawyers that he is in the clear. The gang buys an ice cream truck to keep the beer cold while making shipments. The next day, the refrigeration unit breaks. The car dealership finally agrees to replace it after Lewis and Oswald dress as lemons and make a scene. Lewis and Oswald discover that Vanderkamp sabotaged the truck. Cap-Beer-Cino infiltrates the Warsaw and wins over customers with an endorsement from supermodel Rachel Hunter. Everyone decides to drink their beer so that they can be like the "beautiful people." The gang tries to get revenge by going to Vanderkamp's wealthy neighborhood to sell Buzz Beer at his hangout. They are unsuccessful, and Vanderkamp taunts them. Kate belts him in the stomach and sets off a brawl. Drew convinces the Warsaw customers to reject Cap-Beer-Cino by standing on the bar and making a speech about loyalty. Kate is not pleased when Drew cites Buzz Beer as the "beer of attainable women" and promises to give away a date with her. The gang replaces Rachel Hunter's face on a Cap-Beer-Cino ad with a picture of Mimi.moreless

    • (Lewis is pretending not to know Drew as he takes an "unbiased" beer taste-test between Buzz Beer and Cap-Beer-Cino) Lewis: Mmm, it's not bad. Drew: (Angrily) It's Cap-Beer-Cino. It's the new competition for Buzz Beer. Lewis: Oh. Well, it's malty...nutty...and yet...I'm completely blind!!!

    • (Lewis and Oswald are dressed up in business suits) Oswald: We're still ourselves. Underneath all this is a pair of boxer shorts that say "Home of the Whopper." Kate: Oswald, those were a gag gift. Oswald: Yeah, well, when you get to the bottom of the drawer, joke's over.

    • Drew: Violence never solved anything? World War I, World War II, "Star Wars," every Super Bowl...Who says violence never solved anything?

    • Kate: They may have loads of money and their fancy bars, but we have one thing they'll never have: no class!
