Episode Summary

EDIT
Brotherhood of Man
AIRED:
Mr. Van Zandt, the leader of the Dutch ownership group, announces that he is giving everyone a one-month paid vacation while the store is remodeled. Drew must continue to work during that time, spoiling his plans to spend Memorial Day weekend at a bed-and-breakfast with Sharon. He tries to make it up to her by organizing a picnic in the store. Mr. Van Zandt arrives while Drew and Sharon are inside a tent, and they overhear him say that he is going to fire everyone and have the store blown up to make way for a parking lot. Drew confronts Van Zandt, who says that the store is barely making a profit and the employees are lazy. He demonstrates this through a series of videotapes. However, he is impressed by Drew's work ethic and offers him the chance to manage the Toledo store if he keeps quiet about the closing of the Cleveland store. Drew feels that it is wrong to keep the staff in the dark, but Van Zandt points out that they will lose their jobs either way. Drew decides to go along with this after Mimi and Larry act rudely toward him; but feels guilty after talking with another employee, a good family man. Drew tries to have the store declared a historical landmark, but this fails. He convinces Van Zandt to save everyone's jobs with a song and dance number about the "brotherhood of man." Meanwhile, Oswald buys a pay phone in the hopes of making money. He proves surprisingly successful, thanks to local teenagers.moreless
