  • Episode Description
  • Drew and Lewis are shocked when Oswald announces that he is going to move in with Kate. A jealous Drew feels that it is too soon for them to live together. As Oswald moves out of his apartment, he and Kate get into a shouting match. When Oswald returns a moment later and says that "it's over," Drew assumes that he and Kate have broken up and admits that he thought they were totally wrong for each other. Oswald clarifies that he meant the argument was over, not the relationship. He accuses Drew of pining for Kate. Drew keeps accidentally referring to Kate as his girlfriend instead of Nicki. He claims that he isn't after Kate, but still doesn't think she and Oswald are a good couple. Oswald insists that they are more compatible than Drew and Nicki. They decide to test the relationships by slipping questions from a magazine's compatibility test into the conversation during the couples' Valentine's Day dinner. Oswald and Kate do agree on a few things, while Drew and Nicki seem to have nothing in common. Oswald proposes to Kate, who accepts. Drew tries to compete by asking Nicki to marry him. She is confused, but says yes. Lewis tries to handle his girlfriend, Pinky, who behaves strangely after testing a cat vaccine for DrugCo. Meanwhile, Mimi and Wick take lie detector tests in anticipation of their court appearances for her lawsuit. Wick realizes he is in trouble after witnessing Mimi's mastery of the machine.moreless

    • (Drew attempts to prove that Mimi can't beat a polygraph test) Drew: First I have to ask you a base question. Mimi Bobeck, did you invent the automobile? Mimi: Yes, I did. (the polygraph does nothing) Mr. Wick: Give her something more difficult. Something impossible for her to say yes to. It'll set this thing off like a pinball machine. Drew: All right, hey Mimi, how'd you like to get out the butter and massage oil and do a little slip and slide with me later on? Mimi: (after two deep breaths) Sounds great. (again, the polygraph does nothing) Mimi: I am a god! Yes! Yes! Yes!

    • Mr. Wick (referring to Mimi): She's pure evil, Carey.

    • (About the polygraph) Drew: Mimi, you can lie to me, you can lie in court. If you want, you can even lie in front of my car, but you will never beat this machine.
