  • Episode Description
  • On Drew's first day as co-manager, he and Wick learn that the store is going out of business. However, a potential new buyer has stepped forward and may agree to save Winfred-Louder. The group's main representative, Lord Mercer, doesn't like Drew; but gets along well with Wick, as they are graduates of the same college. Wick promises to handle the deal himself. Drew does not realize that Wick has resumed drinking until he falls down the stairs at the Warsaw. The buyers are bored with Drew's presentation, and insist on hearing from Wick. He refuses to help unless Drew lets him drink. He charms the buyers and helps win them over. A guilt-ridden Drew wants to take Wick to rehab, but decides that he must let him keep drinking until the deal has been finalized at a cocktail party the next day. Wick gets totally wasted and ends up punching out one of the investors. The deal is called off, until an apologetic Drew confesses to letting the alcoholic Wick drink. Lord Mercer is impressed by Drew's ruthlessness and agrees to the purchase. Oswald meets a nurse at the Warsaw, but she is put off by his creepy behavior. He goes down to the hospital in the hopes of convincing her to go out with him. While waiting for Colleen in a patient's room, he starts playing with the paddles and revives a dead man. Colleen is so amazed that she agrees to date Oswald.moreless
