  • Episode Description
  • Mrs. Louder learns of Bell's relationship with Suzie and orders him to fire her. A furious Bell responds with an edict threatening to fire any member of management who is caught dating an employee. This makes Drew and Lisa hesitant to continue their clandestine affair, especially after Mimi vows to catch them together and get Drew fired. Jay suggests that he and Kate could go on double dates with Drew and Lisa; Jay would pose as Lisa's boyfriend, and no one would hassle Drew and Kate because they are known to be friends. The arrangement soon takes its toll on Kate and Jay's relationship, as they can never have any time alone. When Mimi runs into the foursome at the Warsaw, she challenges Jay and Lisa to prove that they are involved by kissing. Kate is incensed when Lisa kisses Jay, but admits that she is mainly upset about not getting to see her own boyfriend. Drew and Jay nearly fight when Drew accuses him of making a move on Lisa and gets worked up about a girl that Jay supposedly took from him in junior high. The arrangement comes to an end, and Lisa decides to stop seeing Drew altogether after he refuses to take a chance and pursue an open relationship. Meanwhile, Oswald and Lewis take "smart pills" as part of a DrugCo study.moreless

    • (After Lewis and Oswald have been taking smart pills with no apparant effect) Oswald: Let's go get some ice cream, my cavity is hurting and neurons are spiking through my cerebral cortex like electrons through a linear accelerator. Lewis: ...What'd you say? Oswald: ...I said, "C'mon, let's get going." Lewis: Oh, okay. For a minute there I thought you said something smart. (They start to leave) Hey, are they still using linear accelerators? Oswald: Actually, most particle accelerator accelerators are circular. Lewis: Don't you mean "elliptical"? Oswald: Ah, but aren't all circles ellipses? (They laugh) ... where's the car? (They look around stupidly)
