  • Episode Description
  • Drew is still devastated by his break-up with Kate. Steve encourages him to move on with his life, and Oswald and Lewis suggest that sleeping with another woman would allow him to get over Kate and go back to just thinking of her as a friend. Mr. Wick moves in with Drew temporarily to keep up appearances for the INS. Oswald and Lewis run into a heartbroken Kate at the Warsaw and tell her about their advice to Drew. She cannot stand the thought of Drew with another woman, especially so soon after the completely implausible demise of their relationship. She races to the house to stop him, only to learn from Wick that Steve has taken Drew out to meet someone. Drew is less than pleased to find that his beautiful date, Jenny, is Mimi's cousin. Mimi forbids Jenny from dating Drew, but she ignores him. Jenny wants to sleep with Drew right away, so they head back to the house. Meanwhile, Kate gets plastered and decides to sleep with Wick. She eventually realizes that this is wrong and starts to leave, but runs into Drew in the hallway. Each is furious to discover that the other plans to sleep with someone else. Drew tries to make Kate think that he is having sex, but soon becomes so upset by the idea of Kate with Wick that he barges into Wick's room. He finds Kate covering her head with a pillow. They each admit that they can't go through with their trysts. Mr. Wick heads across the hall to accommodate the still-horny Jenny. Drew and Kate decide to go back to being friends.moreless
