  • Episode Description
  • Kate's mother takes Kate, Drew and Lisa out to dinner to celebrate Kate's birthday. Kate does not tell her that she is seeing someone because her mother never approves of any of her boyfriends. Kate has led Jay to believe that her mother is in an institution. Lewis inadvertently tells him the truth, so Kate has to invite Jay to have dinner at her mother's house. Mrs. O'Brien learns of Jay's recent divorce and worries that he is on the rebound. She fears that Jay will hurt Kate, and asks Drew to try to convince Kate to stop seeing him. Kate panics when Jay has to break a date because of work, and pressures him about the future of their relationship. They wind up breaking up. Kate confronts her mother, who insists that she has been overlooking the perfect man: Drew. Kate is incredulous. The gang gets drunk at the Warsaw in an attempt to cheer up Kate. Drew and Kate ride around in a cab talking until the car gets a flat tire. Kate tries to kiss Drew, and suggests that they might make a good couple. He realizes that she is probably too drunk to mean what she is saying. She apologizes the next day. Jay and Mrs. O'Brien come to the store. He confronted her about her behavior and convinced her that he is worthy of dating Kate. Meanwhile, Lewis decides to get a tax break by becoming Oswald's legal guardian. The plan fails when Oswald somehow passes the mental competency test.moreless

  • Quotes (20)

    • Lewis: I've finally figured out a way to take the granddaddy of all deductions. I am going to become Oswald's illegal guardian. Drew: Are you crazy? You can't adopt an adult. If you could I would have adopted Anna Nicole Smith years ago.

    • Lynn: Well, Lisa, I see you're the lucky girl that finally landed Drew. Lisa: No, I just fed him once and he followed me home.

    • (Mimi walks to her desk and sees the man who looks exactly like Drew.) Mimi: So much crap, they had to start a second pile.

    • Drew: You were drunk? Oh no. What am I going to do with this ring? And I already broke up with Lisa. I told my mother. She was so happy. (Pretends to cry) How could you do this to me? I suppose the sex didn't mean anything to you either! Kate: Drew? Drew (still fake crying): What?! Kate: You had so much to drink you couldn't even get your eyelids up.

    • Drew: This could work out, but you know, you'd have to be drunk all the time.
