Episode Summary

Drew Goes to Hell
Mr. Soulard and the board ask Drew to help them hire a regional store manager for Winfred-Louder. Drew inquires about getting a promotion to director of personnel, which has been vacant for years. Mr. Wick asks Drew to recommend him for regional manager (even though he is not qualified), and promises to return the favor by helping him get Wick's old job. Drew is adamantly opposed to the idea, but Kate and Lewis suggest that he show some initiative for a change. Soulard lays off Drew's incredibly efficient new assistant, Malcolm; and tells Drew that he cannot be promoted because they have completely eliminated the position of director of personnel. Drew decides to go along with Wick's plan. Wick plays a dirty trick to take care of Johnson, Drew's main competition for store manager. Drew and the gang celebrate at Wick's hangout, a bar called Hell. After Johnson shows up and makes a scene, an indignant Kate, Lewis and Oswald criticize Drew's actions and storm out. Drew goes to work the next day to learn that the store ignored his recommendation of Wick. However, they have promoted Drew to store manager and are sending Wick to Toledo for further training. Wick believes that Drew set him up, and vows to get revenge.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Kate asks a waitress at The Hell Hole to wrap up their sandwiches as they walk out, but they hadn't been there long enough to order anything!

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Mr. Wick: I'm like those streamers on the back of a little girl's bicycle. I don't really do anything but I'm pretty and shiny.

    • Kate: That's what I can be! A closet organizer. I'm going to need a table-saw.
      (Kate leaves)
      Lewis: I say she loses three fingers.
      Oswald: You know, I can't explain this, but I think she loses a foot.
      Drew: All I know is, either way I'm getting a table-saw for Christmas!

    • Mimi: I want a pony.
      Drew: To ride or to feed on?

    • (Wick vows revenge.)
      Drew: I'll see you in Hell! Tonight at Happy Hour...I'll buy you a drink.

    • Mr. Wick: Oh my. You are a clever girl.

    • Drew: So, you took away my hope. I don't have any more carrot, but I sure know where the stick is!

    • (Drew tells Lewis and Kate that he declined Mr. Wick's unethical offer for promotion)
      Lewis: Wow! You're like some superhero capable of warding off success at every turn. (starts to speak like an announcer for a superhero show) They call him Rutman! More stuck in his ways than ten grandpas!
      Drew: And what would the mighty Jani-Tor do in my shoes?
      Lewis: Hey, you're talking to the head Jani-Tor and I'm not ashamed to admit I got there by stepping on a few people. And those I didn't step on, I wined and dined. You'd be surprised at what looking at dirty magazines with the right people would do for your career.
      Kate: You know Drew, after all your hard work, it would be nice to earn some extra money.
      Drew: Hey! I'm not going to do anything that's not going to let me sleep at night.
      Lewis: (he resumes his announcing) And so ends another adventure of Rutman. Tune in next week...hell, skip a month. He's not going anywhere.
