Episode Summary

Drew and Kate Boink
With Drew having finally healed, he and Kate prepare for their first night together. She goes to the Warsaw and stumbles across a support group of her ex-boyfriends, including Oswald and Jay (who actually left her, not the other way around). After discovering how miserable she has made the guys, she worries that the same thing could happen to Drew. She decides not to sleep with him. Meanwhile, Mimi and Steve decide to consult a fertility clinic, as it is the only way for them to have a child. The clinic suffers refrigeration problems, and Mimi learns she must have the zygote implanted immediately. Steve is out of town, so she begs Drew to drive her to the clinic. She notes all of the problems she and Steve have had conceiving and sees it as a sign that she shouldn't have children. Drew assures her that she will be a "fierce, protective mother." He convinces her to go to the appointment. Kate calls Drew and tells him that she needs some time alone. Drew concludes that she never loved him and becomes depressed. Kate comes by Drew's house and explains the reason for her doubts. He says that they are in love and shouldn't worry so much. He reassures her with a big song and dance number. Mimi and Steve later show up outside the window and announce that she is pregnant. Drew pretends not to hear this.moreless

  • A great episode with a wonderful music production.

    The show opens with Steve and Mimi sharing pictures through email at Winfred-Louder. It seems they've had a doctor join Steve's sperm with one of Mimi's eggs, and Mimi will be pregnant soon. Mr. Wick walks in with an expensive mannequin, and Drew yells at him for spending $10,000 on it. Drew notices the mannequin looks a little bit like Kate and he gets an erection. He's a bit surprised when he realizes his penis has healed completely, so the erection doesn't hurt.

    Later that night, Drew's at home, waiting for Kate to come over, when Lewis and Oswald drop by for a beer. They leave when Kate comes over dressed as a clown. Drew tells her about his penis being healed, but Kate can't have sex with him now, she's got a job to go to, hence the clown costume. They agree to meet up tomorrow night instead.

    Even later that night, a small group has formed at the Warsaw; it's a group of guys who have dated Kate, and their relationships have ended badly. Mr. Wick sticks out like a sore thumb, since he's not been in a relationship with Kate. As Mr. Wick is about to leave, Kate comes in and finds out about the club and she feels terrible about the whole thing, and she reveals to Oswald that she and Drew are supposed to have their big night tomorrow.

    We now join Drew at home, in bed, watching TV, trying to learn sex tips from some videos he purchased. It seems he accidentally put in the "sex for seniors" tape, but he decides to watch it anyway.

    Back at the office, Drew calls Kate, and he seems very anxious about tonight. Mimi stops by and insults Drew, like usual, but is distracted by a phone call from the fertility clinic. It seems the clinic has lost power to the freezers and Mimi's only got one hour to have the zygote implanted. She sucks up to Drew to get him to give her a ride there. After some coaxing, Mimi's able to convince Drew to take her.

    On the ride to the clinic, Mimi and Drew engage in a debate about whether or not she should be having a kid. Drew convinces her to go along with the plan to be implanted.

    At Drew's, Lewis is in the kitchen with a musician, who seems to be pretty handy with the fiddle when Drew comes home and receives a call from Kate. She tells Drew that she needs some time alone to think and that she won't be over. This news obviously disappoints Drew, as he thinks Kate doesn't love him. As Drew slowly walks to bed, Lewis and the fiddle player play "Turkey In The Straw" to help cheer him up.

    Later that night, Kate sneaks into Drew's house to talk to him, and she ends up waking him up. She climbs into bed and tells him about the club of ex-boyfriends she found at the Warsaw. Drew tells her that he's willing to take a chance with her because he's in love with her. He confesses his love by doing a big song and dance number, which involves the main cast of the show, along with dozens of extras.

    Two days later, Drew and Kate are still in bed together when they're interrupted by Steve and Mimi, who are outside. They yell up to Drew and tell him that Mimi's pregnant, the implant from the fertility clinic worked.

    The show ends with Lewis and Oswald finding a Playboy tape of Drew's. They put it in the VCR, and they're a little creeped out when it's of old people.

    I really enjoyed tonight's episode. The "L.O.V.E." production number was great. The show has done a number of these kinds of things, and they're all very well done.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Kate tries to convince the guys in the "support group" that she really isn't a bad person, Oswald argues, "You left me at the altar." This is not really fair, because Oswald is partially to blame for throwing her a "surprise wedding" in "My Best Friend's Wedding." She did break his heart, but she had no intention of waiting until they got to the altar to break it off with him--they had not even set a wedding date at the time.

    • Jay really should not be in the "Been Dumped by Kate" club. He moved to Minnesota to start a Dairy Queen in "Break It Up, Break It Up," and didn't even ask her to come with him. She did say that she was breaking up with him, but only in a weak attempt to save face because he was leaving anyway.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Mimi (telling Drew that she's pregnant): I've got a Carey clinging to my walls!

    • Mimi: I need a ride, fast!
      Drew: Sure. Get your coat and I'll warm up the "Screw You" Mobile.

    • Drew (as Mimi describes her doctors' visits): God, I wish I was that dead cat in the middle of the road.

    • Mimi: That was the clinic on the phone. The power's out and the freezer's down. My little zygote only has 1 hour to be implanted!
      Drew: What, does the Lord have to strike you dead? He doesn't want another one of you!

    • Lewis: Hey, Drew. I got this new perfume from Drug-Co. You might want to try it out on your date.
      Drew: No, it's okay...
      (Lewis sprays him with it.)
      Drew: Damn it! Hey, that actually smells pretty good.
      Lewis: I know. (Under his breath) I'm sure you won't be in the three percent.
      Drew: What?
      Lewis: Nothing.
      Drew: What three percent?
      Lewis: Well, three percent of the test monkeys at DrugCo tried to eat their own genitals.
      Drew: Any NEGATIVE side effects?

  • NOTES (6)


    • Lewis: You play a mean fiddle, boy...But give old Lewis his due. I'll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul 'cause I think I'm better than you!

      Lewis quotes lines from "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" by The Charles Daniels Band. Coincidentally, this same song was played in the season 2 episode "The Devil, You Say."
