Episode Summary

EDIT
Mr. Bell offers Drew a promotion in exchange for training his nephew Blaine, whom Bell hopes will succeed Drew as assistant director of personnel. He isn't interested in doing any work, and forces Mimi to run all of his errands. Kate accidentally sells a giant perfume bottle--valued at $2000---for $150. Drew covers for her and tells her that she can pay back a little of the lost money each week. He reports the perfume stolen. Mimi overhears Blaine blabbing to his uncle about Kate's screw-up. He suggests that Bell fire Drew for protecting her. Blaine also recommends that Mimi be fired. Drew and Mimi call a truce and work together to force Blaine out of the store. They try to make him look bad, but their plan fails. Blaine explains that he betrayed Drew because he thought that it was the only way to get the job. Drew blackmails Bell into firing Blaine by referring to his affair with Suzie. Drew and Lisa plan a rendezvous in the store after closing, but the presence of vicious guard dogs spoils the mood.moreless

  • Drew and Mimi work together for a change.

    7.7
    Drew, Lewis, and Oswald are at the Warsaw having a drink when Drew and Oswald decide to ask the waitress out. Since she doesn't know them very well, she says she'll go out with both of them, but they don't want to be pitted against one another, so they change their mind about going out with her.



    At work, Drew chats with Kate about someone from school who sold his microchip company for millions of dollars. Mr. Bell calls Drew about having his nephew come by. He wants Drew to teach him Drew's job, so Drew will be promoted. The problem is his nephew has a lack of work ethic. When Blaine drops by Drew's cubicle to learn a little about the job, he isn't into the idea of working there full time, but Drew tries to help him anyway, since he's got that promotion in mind.



    Drew takes Blaine down to the cosmetics department, where Drew and Lisa call one another names in a flirtatious manner. Drew asks Blaine to fill out some insurance forms, but he's not interested. He'd rather go get his tennis elbow treated. Drew wanders over to Kate, and tells her about Blaine's lack of work ethic. She reveals to him that she sold an expensive bottle of perfume for much, much less than it should have been. Blaine walks over as this is going on, so Drew asks him to keep this information quiet so Kate doesn't get fired.



    Still at work, Drew is chatting with Chuck about a promotion in the security department, which he gives him. Mimi stops by to talk to Drew about the missing perfume bottle. She tells him that Blaine is stabbing Drew in the back by telling Mr. Bell all about the perfume. Drew then convinces Mimi to work together and get back at Blaine, as he's driving her nuts as well.



    At home, Drew decides to make some soup, but there's a knock at the door. It's Mimi. She didn't want to wait until the morning to talk about getting rid of Blaine. Blaine had her wait in line for three hours to pick up tickets to a rap concert. Oswald and Kate stop by to find Mimi and Drew in the kitchen. They just can't believe the two of them are even in the same house. Drew explains to Kate what is going on, and she gets upset when she is told she may get fired for the perfume bottle mishap, so she leaves with Oswald to the Warsaw. Drew grabs some ice cream from the freezer and gives Mimi a pint of Ben & Jerry's. They start to come up with ideas on how to get rid of Blaine, but the discussion turns to Mimi's appearance. Drew suggests that she not use as much makeup and smile more. It's a good thing they're friends at the moment.



    Back at the office, Blaine is asked to interview Lewis for a job. Since he's got some felonies, he tries to bribe Blaine to get the job, but Blaine didn't want to do that, so Lewis ran off. Kate then stopped by and offered to have sex with him in the other storage room, but he caught on to what was going on and confronted Drew and Mimi. Oswald stopped by a little late, trying to sell drugs. Drew outsmarted Blaine by calling Mr. Bell and telling him something about Suzie, so Mr Bell asks Drew to get rid of Blaine.



    The show ends with Drew and Lisa flirting as the store shuts down. They plan on staying after and having sex somewhere in the building. Chuck stops by and warns them to get out of the building before they close up because they release dogs to patrol the store. Thinking he was joking, Drew and Lisa stay after and end up get chased by dogs through the store.



    I enjoyed this episode quite a bit. It was good to see Drew and Mimi team up for a change and get Blaine out before they are bothered anymore by him. I loved the ending with the dogs chasing them through the store.moreless
