Episode Summary

EDIT
Winfred-Louder's attorneys try to force Drew to settle the lawsuit and sign a waiver absolving the store of any responsibility for his actions. He refuses to do this, and insists that he will find another lawyer. He coaxes Kate into calling an obnoxious ex-boyfriend and asking him to represent Drew at a discount rate. She agrees to go out with the guy, but calls it off after he makes a disgusting pass at her. Drew cannot afford anyone else, and is turned down by legal aid because he isn't quite poor enough to fall within their standards. The store has workmen cover Drew's cubicle with a tarp so that no one can see the cartoon, which he has posted on his wall. When the store attorneys again approach him about the settlement, Drew announces that he will represent himself. Oswald takes a liking to Drew's lecherous neighbor, Peaches. She quickly decides to dump Oswald because she doesn't see him as long-term relationship material. She leaves a note with Drew, who instead tells Oswald that he is jealous and asks him to stop seeing Peaches as a favor to him. Kate accidentally spoils Drew's scheme to stop Peaches from lusting after him.moreless

    I enjoyed it. Drew got sued for puting up a cartoon of a Catterpiller makin it with a french fry his "friend" Jules sent him. Funny eppisode.



    [Tv.com Recap] During his carpool to work, Drew is in a car with several women who are complaining about the guy in management who is being sued. They don't know it's Drew, of course, so he tries to act like he agrees with them on everything.



    At work, Kate tells Drew that several people in the office are on his side. Two lawyers drop by, claiming to be representing him. They want him to settle out of court, but Drew doesn't want to do this.



    At home, Drew, Oswald, Lewis and Kate are talking about the lawsuit, and Oswald is looking through the phonebook. Kate tells Drew that one of her old boyfriends is a lawyer, so she gives him a call after Drew nags her to do so. Peaches, one of Drew's neighbors, stops by with a mis-printed T-shirt for Drew. She follows Drew into his living room, where Kate tells Drew that her old boyfriend has agreed to meet them, but only if Kate is there. Peaches seems to be interested in Oswald; she says that when he talks, it almost sounds like he's singing.



    At the Warsaw, Drew, Kate, Lewis, Oswald and Peaches are sitting around waiting for Kate's old boyfriend to show up. Peaches and Oswald are sitting at the bar, drinking, and Oswald seems to think she's attractive. Oswald decides to take Peaches out on a date. Brad eventually shows up, and it turns out that the only way that Brad will help Drew for free is if Kate will go out with him. It turns out that Brad is a creep, so that idea comes to an end. Kate, Lewis and Drew decide to look at the situation a little different, how good prison will be... three square meals, plenty of exercise, time to read, etc.



    Drew decides to look for a lawyer, and comes across someone who is literally high. It doesn't seem to work out because Drew makes $2000 too much a year for that lawyer to help.



    Drew decides to lay on the pool table in the rain, with the intent to drown. Kate and Lewis want him to settle the lawsuit. Peaches stops by and asks him to tell Oswald that they're over. Peaches is told by her psychic that she is instead interested in dating Drew. Peaches then leaves, and Oswald stops by. He tells Oswald that he should stay away from Peaches, which he agrees to do.



    At work, Drew sees that his cubicle is all covered up. Drew is lied to, being told that they're putting in a skylight, but the ceiling goes to another floor, it's not the roof. The lawyers stop by, asking Drew to settle, but he says no. He has decided to represent himself since no lawyer will help him out.



    The show ends with Drew calling Peaches, disguising his voice as that of her psychic. He tells her what she's wearing by having Lewis sit at the window with binoculars. Drew tells her to stay away from a large man (him, of course), but Kate drops by, asking to use the phone. She could be heard on the phone by Peaches, so Drew admits that it was him and says that she can come over.

  • The episode has an uninteresting plot.

    I'm still not a big fan of the plot involving the cartoon, but Penn and Teller add some humor to the show. The plot involving Peaches was rather funny. Seeing Drew lie on the pool table, trying to drown was a bit silly.moreless
