  • Episode Description
  • Mr. Soulard tells Drew that his workload is too heavy, and allows him to hire an assistant. At the same time, Kate loses her job as Mrs. Louder's assistant. Drew claims that he doesn't know of any openings in the store, but Mimi mentions the assistant position so that Drew is forced to hire her. He realizes that it will be a disaster because of Kate's employment record. Kate's draconian methods prove very effective and force employees who had been ignoring Drew's paperwork requests to shape up. However, she quickly goes on a power trip and has the entire store at her mercy. Mr. Wick orders Drew to fire her. After Lewis totals Oswald's car, he tries to make it up to him by entering a contest at a local dealership. The group that stays inside a car the longest will win the vehicle. Lewis convinces Drew to put off firing Kate until after the weekend so that they can all take part in the contest. They develop a rivalry with a group of college kids in the next car. Kate learns she has been fired when she calls the store to order some sweaters. Kate is furious at Drew for not telling her the truth. He apologizes and explains that he was afraid that she would dump him. She says that she would not do this, but emphasizes that they have to be honest with each other. Lewis helps win the contest by nailing one of the college guys with a snowball and knocking him out of the car.moreless

    • (Janet has come to get her new parking space assigned) Janet: Now I know why I didn't get the job as Drew's assistant. You have to sleep with him. Kate: Janet... Janet... Oh, Janet the skank!
