  • Episode Description
  • Drew finishes his holiday hirings early and plans to spend Thanksgiving alone with his date. However, Mr. Wick decides to throw together a Winfred-Louder Thanksgiving Day parade at the last minute. He places Drew in charge, and warns him that many people will be fired unless the parade helps boost holiday sales. With just two weeks to go until Thanksgiving, Drew has a very difficult time locating balloons, and cannot obtain permits from the city to block off traffic. Mimi tells him that her father owns a trucking company and can loan the store flatbed trucks to use for floats. He can also arrange for the permits, so long as Mimi is allowed to sit on the lead float and serve as "snow queen." Drew agrees. Mr. Wick kidnaps actor David Lander from the airport and forces him to serve as grand marshal. A furious Mimi steals the keys to all of the floats and goes home. Drew goes after her, and warns that Mr. Wick has given him permission to fire her unless she returns the keys. Drew meets Mimi's family, who talk about how excited they are to see her on television. He is overcome with guilt and agrees to let her be on the head float. Mimi thanks her family for helping her scam Drew.moreless

    Trivia (2)

    • Mimi says that she'll be with her family on Thanksgiving like the rest of the world. However, only the United States celebrates Thanksgiving (at least at that time of year).

    • During the closing credits, a giant cow balloon hits a power line and knocks out the power to the store. It also happens to knock out the sun, because there is no longer light coming from the outside windows.
