  • Episode Description
  • Drew and Lisa begin arguing on a regular basis. She gets jealous when he turns down a date with her so that he can go clothes shopping with Kate. The Winfred-Louder staff sucks up to Drew as he completes the annual performance evaluations. Mimi gets a hold of some of the evaluations, and is surprised that he made some critical remarks about Lisa. He tries to hide this from Lisa, but she discovers the truth and becomes furious. She feels that Drew was tougher on her so that people wouldn't accuse him of favoritism. He insists that he was honest about her performance, and says that he was just doing his job. Lisa feels that Drew always puts his job ahead of their relationship. Drew puts together a series of pranks to get revenge on Mimi for showing Lisa her evaluation. Lisa says that her supervisor allowed her to see the evaluation; Mimi had nothing to do with it. She pressures Drew to prove that she is important to him by blowing off work for the rest of the day. Mimi shows up with a cast on her foot and announces that her sister is in the hospital. Drew tries to disable all of the pranks, and feels so guilty that he agrees to work for Mimi for the rest of the day. Mimi admits that she scammed him, as her sister was just undergoing liposuction. Lisa decides to break up with Drew after he leaves her in the car all day. Drew asks Lisa to move in with him in a desperate attempt to save the relationship.moreless

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (2)

    • Lisa: How can you call me immature? I wasn't the one in the bathtub yelling "Hey look! It's a jacuzzi!"

    • Lewis: How'd she get a hold of her evaluation anyway? Drew: There's only one person diabolical enough to have done this. Everybody: Mimi... Jay: Kate. (Kate turns around.) I...Whooo---do you think it'd be, Kate?

    Notes (1)

    • This episode features the premiere of the production number "Five O'Clock World." The song was recorded by The Vogues in 1965 and can be found on the album Cleveland Rocks! Music from the Drew Carey Show. The video was re-edited to become the title sequence for most of the second season.

    Trivia (3)

    • The opening scene with Drew and Mimi's pranks, with his cubicle's definition, Mimi's hair, and the other trivia noted on this page, may imply that the scene was taped during season one.

    • Who would Drew tell that Mimi was late the day before? She admits to pulling a prank on him as revenge for telling the boss.

    • Mr. Bell was fired in the last episode so why is it his voice asking Drew where the evaluations are?

    Allusions (1)

    • At the end of the episode, there was a short scene where Drew repelled from the ceiling, hanging horizontal to the floor, over Mimi's desk. This scene was reminiscent of a scene in "Mission: Impossible," starring Tom Cruise. The film debuted only a few months before this episode aired.
