Episode Summary

EDIT
Cain and Mabel
AIRED:
Steve comes to the Warsaw while dressed in drag. A man mistakes him for a woman and tries to buy him a drink. He gets angry when he learns the truth about Steve, and insults him. Drew stands up for his brother. Steve's transvestite friends begin frequenting the Warsaw as a show of solidarity. They dance and play loud music all of the time. Drew, Lewis and Kate become annoyed when other customers begin staying away, as this makes it even harder for any of them to find a date. Drew suggests that the bar get the female customers back by holding a ladies' night with half-price drinks. Steve is outraged when the bartender only gives the discount to actual women, not the cross-dressers. Drew refuses to take his side. Steve accuses Drew of trying to force him out of the Warsaw because he is ashamed of him. Drew insists that he is actually upset because Steve is trying to take away his bar. He says that Steve has been stealing things that Drew liked since they were children. Steve realizes that he is right and apologizes. Oswald's mother comes for a visit, and he plans to surprise her with the check from his breast implants. She stuns him with the news that she is going to marry her orthodontist boyfriend. Oswald notes that the man is not her usual type and suspects that she is just trying to get his money and save her business. Mrs. Harvey says that her taste has changed as she has gotten older, and that she loves her boyfriend very much. She is horrified to learn of Oswald's participation in the experiment. She warns him not to do such a thing again. Mrs. Harvey is grateful, but turns down the check and advises Oswald to keep his "booby money."moreless

    At Drew's house, Drew and Kate are carving pumpkins, when Drew asks her to remove the pumpkin guts, since he's grossed out by them. She chases him outside, where Lewis and Oswald are "carving" their pumpkin with some sort of small explosive. They all go inside, but Oswald's having hearing problems. Since Oswald's mom is coming today, he had Lewis tape down his beast implants. Oswald's mom comes in, but Oswald doesn't want to hug her for obvious reasons. Drew offers to hug her, as he's always had a thing for her. Oswald tells his mom that he's solved all of her money problems, but she says not to bother, as she's now engaged to be married to Henry, an orthodontist she's been seeing. You can imagine Oswald's surprise.



    At the Warsaw, Drew and Steve come in. When a waitress brings a beer over for Kate, which is from a guy at the bar. She asks Oswald if he's okay with that, but it turns out it was for Steve, who was cross dressing again. Drew defends his brother when the guy who bought the beer gets upset and embarrassed.



    In the car, Oswald wants Drew to take him to see his mom, and talk to her about the breast implants he has, and the fact that she's getting married again.



    At the Warsaw, Drew, Lewis, and Oswald come in and notice a lot of women dancing, but quickly realize they're all cross dressers. Steve and a friend of his come over and talk to Drew. It seems this is a result of the whole thing when Drew stood up for Steve. Kate comes in and joins the guys. An attractive woman comes in and sits down at a table next to them, but Drew blows his chance when he checks to see if she has an Adam's apple, and asks he if she's a guy.



    At Winfred Louder, Kate and Lewis come in and say it's time they go drinking, but not at the Warsaw, since it's just creepy now. Mimi comes over and Lewis asks her if she knows about any good bars to go to. Mimi calls them over to her computer, where works out a list of bars, but none of them are better than the Warsaw. Drew decides to call the owner and get him to change the policy.



    In Oswald's delivery truck, he's taking his mom around town, where they deliver packages together. He pulls out a check for $10,000 from DrugCo, and then shows his mom what he's done to his body. She explains to Oswald that she really loves Henry.



    At the Warsaw, it's ladies night, and when Drew doesn't back up Steve for being a woman, Steve gets upset.



    In Drew's backyard, Drew's playing eight-ball in the pouring rain, when Steve comes over and wants to talk to him. Drew goes off on tells Steve everything Steve's done which has made him upset. Steve's taking of the Warsaw was just one more thing in a long list. To please Drew, Steve stands outside in the rain, without the umbrella he had. Drew eventually comes out and gives him his umbrella back, and they both go inside.



    The show ends with Lewis and Oswald in Drew's kitchen. They're trying to make "one second toast", which leads to an explosion and fire in Drew's oven.



    The plot with Oswald and his mother was the funniest, the rest of it was fairly average.moreless
