Episode Summary

EDIT
Drew prepares to defend himself in court. He tries to study legal books, and gets advice from other lawyers by calling up and pretending to quiz them. He signs his car and house over to Kate and Lewis so they can't be seized if he loses the case. The judge does not take kindly to Drew's attempts to flatter her and create levity in the courtroom, and Kate isn't much help either. Nora breaks down in tears on the stand. A loud-mouthed co-worker, angry that the store has now barred employees from displaying personal items in their cubicles, harasses Drew at the Warsaw. Drew punches him out and gets arrested. He shows up in handcuffs for the final ruling in Nora's case. Although the judge agrees that Nora was forced to look at sexually explicit material, she rules that the matter is trivial and did not create a hostile workplace.moreless

  • O, Reida!

    9.1
    A great episode about Drew in court. I loved that it was about Nora's prudeishness [trippled the lenght of a short word Ya Hoo!] that got him sued for a cartoon of a Caterpillar screwing a Crincle Cut French Fry [get the cartoon by the way]. And his blowing it up to prove that there was nothing wrong with it and Lewis' reaction "its funny when its small but when you blow it up its disgusting". I also loved how Lewis tryed to see if a Caterpillar would try to have sex with a French Fry at the end of the episode [which it did]. Great show.moreless
  • Drew finally goes to court!

    8.6
    In his carpool ride to work, Drew finds himself stuck with a bunch of ex-smokers. When he asks them for money for his lawsuit defense fund, they all decline. When Drew finds a pack of cigarettes above the visor, everyone tries to mug him for them. This scene was pretty funny.



    While at home, Drew tries calling a lawyer and asks him for some help, by lying about who he is. Lewis and Kate drop by with some bad news, they can't really help him much with the lawsuit. Kate has been trailing Nora trying to get any dirt on her, but came up empty.



    At work, Drew interviews a man for a salesman job, and at the end of the interview, he tests to see just what would offend the man, and Drew was unable to offend him, so he hired him. Mimi drops by Drew's cubicle with a new memo from management saying everyone must remove all personal effects so they don't offend anyone, which upsets Drew.



    Drew, Lewis, Oswald, and Kate are all in court waiting for the judge. Oswald notes how important the case is, and it kind of scares Drew a little. The case doesn't go so well, but Drew was able to get an objection in there, but Nora is using emotion to get people to sympathize with her.



    At the Warsaw, Drew, Kate, Oswald, and Lewis are sitting around drinking, and chatting about the case. A guy in the bar starts throwing french fries at Drew, so he fights with the guy.



    Late for court, Drew shows up and calls Kate as a witness, but she doesn't help him out much. Oswald is up next. His testimony was written down, and you can see it was written on his hand. Lewis didn't help, he couldn't get past the part where you promise not to lie. The judge finds in favor of Drew since it, in her mind, didn't create a hostile work environment. Drew is handcuffed and hauled out of court, so he could go to his other case, the one where he's been charged for assault, with the guy from the bar.



    The show ends with Drew, Oswald, Lewis, and Kate at the Warsaw celebrating the victory. Lewis pulls out a caterpillar and places it near a french fry to see if there is any attraction, and sure enough, it crawls on top of the fry.



    The plot involving the cartoon has come to a conclusion, and it's about time. As a whole, the episode wasn't hilarious, but there were several funny little moments.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • At the end, when Lewis gets out the caterpillar, they act like it's mounting the french fry (which is seen in a close up). But in the wide shots of the table we can see the caterpillar move away from the french fry.

    • You can't go to jail for sexual harassment--sexual harassment is in civil law, not criminal. Also, the one suing is not called the prosecution (again, that's criminal), but the plaintiff.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (Drew and Mimi are circling each other preparing to fight)
      Drew: Hold on. I need to call the Nature Channel so I can get this on tape.

    • Drew: Ms. Bobeck, will you please tell the court what you told me out in the hall? And remember, there were witnesses! (gestures to Kate, Oswald and Lewis)
      Mimi: I said I think you're a disgusting pig and I hate your guts with an all-consuming passion.
      Drew: After that.
      Mimi: I'd do whatever it took to get you put away.
      Drew: After that.
      Mimi: You four-eyed butt weasel.

    • Drew: How did I harass Nora by putting up that cartoon? Define sexual harassment for me!
      Lewis: According to this, sexual harassment is any unwelcome touching or advance.
      Drew: That's every sexual advance I make!

    • Drew: Here's a joke that won't offend anybody: a person and a person walk into a place. There, that's it.

    • Drew (making closing argument): That guy at Tiananmen Square wasn't trying to stop a tank; he was trying to tell a funny knock-knock joke. 'Knock Knock. Who's there? A big-ass tank.' Lighten up, people!
