  • Episode Description
  • Drew is confused when Bonnie refuses to go out anywhere with him. She always insists that they just pick up some fast food and go back to his house. Drew believes that she is just concerned about putting a strain on his finances, but wishes that they could do something special. Kate suggests that Drew surprise Bonnie. Drew shows up at her apartment with a gourmet meal, only to find that she is married. He ends up having to impersonate a caterer and serve dinner to the couple. Bonnie comes to Drew's house the next day to apologize. She says that her marriage had been dead for a long time, and that she had been planning to end it. Ironically, Drew's dinner helped to rekindle the passion in the marriage. Oswald wins Global Parcel's intramural boxing championship. The man he defeated, Joe "Special Delivery" Lupo, takes him to dinner to celebrate. After Joe begins showering Oswald with gifts, the gang finally forces Oswald to realize that Joe has the wrong impression about their relationship. Oswald discovers that he has been unwittingly "dating" several of his male co-workers.moreless

    • When Oswald meets Drew at home at the end of the episode, Drew is in the kitchen and you hear the front door open, although you never hear it close (although you could pretend that Oswald forgot to close it). Also, as soon as you hear the door opening, you immediately see Oswald entering the kitchen. It should have taken at least a few seconds for Oswald to get through the living room and into the kitchen.
