  • Episode Description
  • Mimi and Steve cannot get their son to stop crying. He becomes quiet instantly when Drew comes for a visit and interacts with him. Steve becomes ill, and Mimi orders him to leave so that he doesn't infect the baby. He stays at Drew's house, where Oswald and Kate look after him. He convinces the reluctant Drew to stay at his house and help Mimi with the baby until he recovers. The baby will only stop crying when Drew is holding him, and refuses to eat. Much to his horror, Drew must hold the baby while he breast-feeds. He then learns that Steve has strep throat and cannot return for two weeks. Drew finally becomes fed up and says that Mimi and Steve will have to learn to take care of their child on their own. Mimi, disheartened by her inability to bond with the baby, tries to leave him with Drew. When a still-ailing Steve comes over to visit, the baby stops crying after Mimi yells at Steve to get out. Drew concludes that the baby had grown used to Mimi's irascible behavior while he was in the womb, and just didn't recognize her because she was acting too nice. Steve and Mimi name their son King Augustus Antonio (?) Carey. Meanwhile, Lewis catches a cold from Steve after claiming that exposure to viruses at DrugCo had left him immune to illness. He is convinced that he will die, and decides to be totally free and honest--even if it means walking around the Warsaw naked.moreless

    • Lewis and Mr. Wick sing Cabaret from the musical of the same name. Lewis also dances to One from A Chorus Line.

    • The baby's name was selected by America Online users in a contest. (This is why it had to be dubbed over in post-production.)

    Trivia (1)

    • When you see a close-up of the baby's face, you can clearly see that the crying noises were added.

    Allusions (1)

    • Drew: This is not my ugly house! This is not my ugly wife! How did I get here? My God, what have I done? Drew quotes lyrics from "Once in a Lifetime" by Talking Heads (substituting "ugly" for "beautiful" because Mimi is involved).
