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
