  • Drew, Lewis, and Oswald play practical jokes on one another.

    7.5
    We join Lewis and Oswald at the Warsaw, and they're mad at Drew because they found the mugs they made for Drew at the Salvation Army. They tell Kellie they're going to knock Drew out when they see him. Just then, Drew walks in, complaining about his wrist, and then leaves to use the restroom. Not surprisingly, Lewis and Oswald did nothing to Drew, so Kellie tells them they should just talk to Drew, but that's not their style apparently.



    Kellie decides to walk Drew home and then tells Drew that Lewis and Oswald found out about the mugs, so Drew knows they're going to get back at him somehow. When Drew walks into his house, he realizes Lewis and Oswald have moved his furniture around, so now his bed is where the couch is. Kellie offers to help move things back, but Drew knows it's a lot of work, so he passes on the offer.



    At the hospital, Drew finds out that his childhood doctor has retired, so he has his wrist examined by an attractive woman, who happens to be his childhood doctor's daughter.



    Back at the Warsaw, Drew tells Kellie about a his plan to get Lewis and Oswald back by painting their usual chairs. As he's on his way out, Lewis and Oswald come in and go to sit down, but are distracted by two, attractive women. The guys walk over to them and they decide to join them at their table, but end up sitting down in the painted chairs. When the women realize what happened, they leave. Kellie comes back into the scene and tells the guys it was Drew's idea. They decide to get him back by prank calling him and telling him he needs a colonoscopy.



    While at work, Drew gets a call from Lewis, who's using helium to alter his voice. Lewis tells Drew to come into the hospital for the colonoscopy, and Drew falls for it. Evan comes in and asks Drew if he's doing okay, and it turns out Evan has gone through that procedure several times, and knowing it's not such a big deal helps Drew feel more comfortable with it.



    Back at the hospital, Drew talks to his doctor about the colonoscopy, but it's clear she doesn't know anything about it. She gets a little freaked out and runs out of the room.



    Lewis and Oswald are now at the Warsaw and they tell Kellie about their plans for Drew. She tells them to stop their plans because Drew could get hurt. Lewis and Oswald decide to call off the colonoscopy, but have people come in while he's naked and take pictures.



    Now at the hospital, Drew's lying down, ready for his exam. Drew and the physician get into a little argument about Russia, the home country of the physician. Lewis, Oswald, Mimi, Tim, and a few others come in and are shocked to see that the physician actually went along with the procedure. Drew, Lewis, and Oswald decide to call a truce, as it's clearly gotten out of hand.



    The show ends with Lewis, Oswald, and Kellie watching television on Drew's bed.



    The plot for tonight's episode wasn't particularly interesting, and the comedic writing wasn't enough to save this episode, unfortunately.moreless
