Episode Summary

EDIT
Bus-ted
AIRED:
Nicki talks to the newspaper about Drew's bigamy. The article also refers to his marriage to Mr. Wick, and everyone around town starts calling him "the impotent, bisexual bigamist." Drew's lawyer tells him that his marriages to Kate and Nicki are invalid because he is still married to Wick. Kate refuses to speak to Drew, and begins dating a handsome local sportscaster. Drew tries to come up with a grand gesture in the hopes of winning her back. Inspired by a marriage proposal on the side of a bus, he buys an ad asking for forgiveness and has it placed on five buses. He buys just half-ads to save money. Unfortunately, his messages share space with an anti-child abuse campaign, and the pictures are arranged in a way that makes it seem that Kate is the woman who battered the child in the photo. Kate's boyfriend dumps her to preserve his image. Instead of helping Drew with a new plan, Lewis and Oswald pay a woman to become a substitute Kate. She nearly gets into a fist fight with the original. Drew tracks down Ron at a hockey game and asks him to get back together with Kate. Kate says that she doesn't want Ron back, and is angry at Drew for continuing to interfere in her life. She claims that nothing will make her feel better. She starts to leave, then elects to beat up Drew and throw him through a window. Meanwhile, Steve tells Mimi that he will come home if she proves she is truly sorry for what she did to Drew. She and the band Motorhead perform outside his bedroom at deafening levels and sing about how sorry she is.moreless

    Tonight's show opens with Mr. Wick telling Drew about his big date. The more he talks about her, the more Drew believes the woman Mr. Wick is dating is a prostitute. When Mr. Wick leaves, Mimi comes in with the newspaper. She shows Drew an article from Nicki, who told a reporter all about Drew's multiple marriages, embarrassing Drew. Shortly thereafter, Steve comes in with Gus. Mimi asks him to come home, but he's unwilling to until she apologizes for getting Drew put away in the mental institute. Lonely and desperate, Mimi swallows her pride and apologizes. Drew doesn't accept her apology, so Mimi apologizes again, in a way, by playing loud music with Motorhead in Drew's backyard in the middle of the night, waking him up. Drew eventually makes his way outside and accepts her apology.



    At the Warsaw, Lewis and Oswald are bored, so Lewis asks Oswald to figure out the number he's thinking about. Every time he guesses wrong, Lewis slaps Oswald. After a few attempts, Oswald gives up. Drew then comes in and tells the guys about the marriages with Kate and Nicki don't count because he was married to Mr. Wick first. Kate then walks in with three baseball players, making Drew jealous. He eventually decides to go over and take Kate back, but she's unwilling to go back with them. This obviously upsets Drew; even if Kate won't marry him, Drew wants her back as a friend.



    The next day, Drew's sharing a car ride with Mimi, Steve, Nora, and Mr. Wick. While Mimi and Steve are making out in the backseat, Mr. Wick and Nora offer Drew advice for getting back Kate. When Drew sees a sign on the side of a bus, he gets an idea to get Kate to come back.



    One week later, Drew, Lewis, and Oswald are at a bus stop, waiting to see the new sign Drew bought. Kate then walks by to get on the bus, and is horrified when she sees the sign on the bus. Drew bought a half-sized ad which ended up being placed next to a child, who had been beaten, making her look like she abuses children.



    At the Warsaw, Lewis and Oswald are drinking when Steve runs in with a sign he tore off the bus. Drew then walks in and tells the guys he was able to get the bus company to recall the ads, but it's obviously too late now. Realizing how difficult it would be to get Kate to come back, Lewis and Oswald decided to get a new Kate. Just then, a woman walks in and joins them at their table. It seems the guys actually went out and found someone to act like Kate; they told her all about the real Kate, so she knows a lot about the group. A few seconds later, Kate comes in and yells at Drew, Lewis, Oswald, and the new Kate. It seems Kate's boyfriend dumped her because of the ad Drew bought for the bus.



    In an attempt to get Kate's boyfriend to go out with her again, Drew, Lewis, and Oswald catch up with the guy, Ron Higgins, a sportscaster. When Ron goes on live TV, Lewis and Oswald stand in the background and screw around with their hands in their pants. The crowd then notices Drew from the newspaper article. They throw bottles and trash at him, so Drew runs out.



    Later that night, Kate comes over to Drew's with some things he asked for. Drew then brings out Ron, who was waiting in the kitchen. Kate gets upset with Drew because she wants him to stay out of her life, and she doesn't want Ron in her life either. Drew asks her what he can do to make her happy. At first, nothing comes to mind, but then she starts swinging, beating the crap out of Drew, from the front door of the house, all the way to the pool table in the backyard.



    The show ends with Nora being awoken by her cat, Professor Cattington.



    The drama surrounding Drew's relationship with Nicki and Kate continues, but nothing really happens in this episode, in my opinion. Sure Drew tries to get Kate to come back, but that's about it. The funniest scene was the one at the arena, where Lewis and Oswald played games behind Ron Higgins.moreless
