  • Episode Description
  • Drew's older brother Steve makes a surprise visit. He reveals that he has recently lost his job and gone through a broken engagement, and asks to stay with Drew for a while. Lewis dislikes Steve because of a prank he once played on him. Kate convinces Drew to hire Steve for the opening in the store's cosmetics department. He reluctantly agrees after they both promise to stay out of trouble. Drew asks Mr. Wick to pretend to fire Steve on his first day. When they go down to the floor to carry out the joke, Drew discovers that Steve is wearing a wig and women's clothing. He reveals that he is a cross-dresser. Wick orders Drew to fire Steve immediately. Drew is shocked by his brother's news, but decides to stand up for him. He feels that the customers won't even realize that Steve is a man, as Wick initially mistook him for a woman. He dresses up four men on the sales floor as women and challenges Wick to find one of them. If he is correct, he can fire Steve and have Drew's pool table; but if he is wrong, Steve must stay. Wick mistakes singer Dionne Warwick for an impersonator and loses the bet. Meanwhile, a horrified Mimi tries to find a way to keep her face covered after an allergic reaction forces her to go two weeks without make-up.moreless

  • Quotes (7)

    • Steve: I'm as good looking as Mom was at my age! Drew: Aww man, here come the nightmares.

    • Steve: I left all kinds of signs. Remember when Dad used to find my "girlfriend's" clothes in my room? Drew: Those were your clothes? I used to dance with those.

    • Mimi: The doc said no make-up for two weeks. Drew: Wow, so underneath those glasses and those scarves you're not wearing any make-up? Mimi: No. Drew: Wow, were you scared when you saw it?

    • (Discussing job options at Winfred-Louder for Steve) Drew: Well there's an opening at the loading dock, but with your back I don't think it's such a good idea. And then there's an opening for an in-store model, but with your front, I don't think it's such a good idea.

    • Steve: If anyone understands rejection and humiliation it's my little brother!
