Episode Summary

EDIT
Do the Hustle
AIRED:
Steve and Sharon grow tired of Drew and Mimi's constant sniping. They suggest that the foursome go on a double date in the hopes that Drew and Mimi might finally agree to a truce. They constantly insult each other, and Steve and Sharon leave angrily after Mimi sets Drew's menu on fire. Mimi and Drew are left stranded, and have to walk to the bowling alley to call for rides. They decide to bowl while they wait, and end up hustling two doctors out of four-hundred dollars. Drew and Mimi agree to meet each night to continue their scam. They keep it a secret because they fear that Steve and Sharon would force them to go on more double dates if they knew they were getting along. Mimi gets in over her head when she accepts a two-thousand dollar bet from some men. It turns out that they are professional bowlers, hired by the doctors that Drew and Mimi beat in their first scam. Drew tries to flee, but Sharon and his friends show up before he can escape. Drew and Mimi compete very well and have a chance to win in the final frame. Unfortunately, Mimi accidentally says, "I love you, buddy" while giving Drew a pep talk. He falls into a state of shock and drops the ball, which rolls into the gutter.moreless

    At home, Drew comes down and finds Steve sitting on the couch, reading a paper. Steve asks Drew about his night with Sharon, and Drew reveals his car broke down. Drew walks into the kitchen, and notices Mimi sitting at the table, which means she stayed the night, which is disturbing to Drew. Sharon comes down, and she joins them all in a discussion about possibly having a double date sometime. To celebrate their discussion, they hug each other. Lewis walks in and sees everyone in a group hug, and volunteers to join in, thinking it may be an orgy.



    Steve, Mimi, Sharon, and Drew arrive to the restaurant. Drew gets a little concerned when he sees the prices, but Sharon volunteers to pay, since she knows the bill for Drew's car is going to be expensive. When they sit down to eat, Mimi ends up setting Drew's menu on fire, which causes Sharon and Steve to leave. They tell them that they're going to go to a different restaurant. Without a ride anywhere, Drew asks the waiter about using the phone, but it's out of order, so he recommends using the one at the bowling alley.



    Drew and Mimi walk into the bowling alley and start bowling. Two guys, who happen to be doctors, come over, and Mimi volunteers to play the guys in a game for money. Since Mimi didn't seem to be any good, they agree to play for a couple hundred dollars. Mimi steps up and bowls a strike. You can tell it in their faces that they are upset about being hustled.



    A while later, the guys Drew and Mimi beat at bowling, pay up for the two games they lost. Drew and Mimi are quite happy about winning, so they discuss the possibility of hustling people in the future, and they agree to it, since they could both use the money.



    At Drew's house, Lewis, Oswald, and Kate are playing chess, but they're using some of the chess pieces like action figures, and fighting with them. Drew comes in and asks them to leave, so they do, since they think Drew's going to be having sex with Sharon. Mimi comes over with her bowling ball, but she has to run hide upstairs when Sharon comes over. Sharon brings in a pizza, but Drew lies about having to take care of Steve, so Sharon decides to leave. Mimi comes down, and the two of them leave to go bowling.



    We cut to several scenes of Drew and Mimi hustling people, and they seem to be enjoying it quite a bit. They're really bringing in the money with this little scheme.



    At Winfred-Louder, Mr. Wick notices Drew and Mimi are acting odd; they're not fighting, so he tries to encourage them, but is unable to get them to fight, so he walks into his office, upset. Feeling bad for Mr. Wick, they decide to fake their fighting, which seems to cheer Mr. Wick up. Drew is joined by Sharon, Steve, and Kate, who are curious about the money Drew's come into recently. They're surprised to find out Drew and Mimi have been spending so much time together. Steve is happy since Drew and Mimi are spending so much time, and he assumes they're friends now, but Drew's offended by this assumption, since they still hate one another and are only working together for the money.



    At the bowling alley, Drew tries to set up two guys, but it seems that the doctors Drew and Mimi hustled earlier are getting even by hiring two very good bowlers to hustle them instead. When seeing he's been set up, Drew tries to walk out, but he runs into Lewis, Oswald, Kate, and Sharon, who come in. They decide to join them over at one of the alleys.



    After a while, the two teams are very close. Drew's up, and he's been doing well, but when it comes down to the last frame, he chokes, and blows any chances of a win.



    The show ends with Kate and Oswald trying to help Steve get his boots off. Lewis comes in, and is curious about what everyone is doing, and decides to join in. This scene is much like an earlier scene when Drew, Mimi, Sharon, and Steve were hugging.



    I didn't enjoy this episode quite as much as the previous few. While the fact that Drew and Mimi working together is an interesting change of pace, the episode as a whole wasn't all that interesting.moreless
