  • Episode Description
  • Drew, Lewis and Oswald learn that their high school band teacher, Ms. Blankenship, has died. Drew seems to take the news especially hard. He organizes the band to put together one last performance for her, and becomes furious whenever anyone insults Ms. Blankenship. His friends ask for an explanation, and Drew reveals that he lost his virginity to her. He considers the experience to be special. However, he soon learns that the teacher regularly seduced her male pupils. Drew receives another shock when Kate and Oswald confess that they slept together once in high school. Drew feels like a fool because he was unaware of these secrets. Kate tries to cheer him up by proposing a secret of their own. She declares that they should get married if they are both still single by a certain age (which Drew keeps trying to lower).moreless

    • Lewis: Remember Joanie McCormick? Kate: Yeah. Lewis: Well one day we were at her house by the pool and it was summer and it was real hot. Drew: So it was Joanie. Lewis: No. Joanie had to go to field hockey practice but her sister comes over. Kate: You slept with her sister? Lewis: No. We chatted for for a while then she had to leave but her brother comes in. So we open a couple beers. Oswald: Lewis, no. Lewis: What? No! No! Her brother had to leave and I'm all alone until the dog comes in. All: Eww! Lewis: But the dog goes. Drew: (interrupting) Lewis, who did you sleep with?! Lewis: Six years later. Some girl in a bar. I don't know.

    • Drew: Ms. Blankenship died? Oh my God. What are we gonna do? Lewis: Well, since we haven't perfected reanimation, I say we just let her be dead.

    • Principal Zand: She was, no doubt, in her classroom, toiling away, helping a student master his instrument. (Lewis, Kate and Oswald all laugh out loud and try to cover it up as crying.)

    • Kate: That's the most beautiful story of statutory rape I've ever heard.

    Notes (1)

    • The band sort of plays "Amazing Grace" while rehearsing at Drew's house.
