Episode Summary

Drew Tries to Kill Mimi
Mimi tricks Drew into believing that an important executive waiting to speak with him is actually interviewing to be Winfred-Louder's janitor. After he makes a fool of himself (with comments that seem racist when taken out of context), he vows to kill Mimi. Later that day, a bee flies into Drew's car as he is driving out of the garage. While he is trying to get it out of his face, he loses control of the car and nearly hits Mimi. She believes that he was really trying to kill her, and has him arrested for attempted murder. Steve insists that Drew would never really try to kill Mimi, but she refuses to drop the charges. Kate annoys the detectives investigating the case by babbling about herself and her feelings for Drew instead of answering their questions. Mimi tries to convince the detectives that Drew wants her out of the way before the wedding. They plan to indict him and send him to prison. Steve feels that Mimi will realize that Drew is innocent if he proves that he doesn't hate her. Steve reads a speech supposedly written by Drew in which he welcomes Mimi to the family. Mimi is touched and drops the charges. Drew thanks Steve for saving him and agrees to read the toast at the wedding.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • I don't think you can "drop" an attempted murder charge. The state might not have enough evidence without Mimi's testimony, but the people bring the charges in an attempted murder case, not the victim.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • (Drew is arrested for trying to kill Mimi)
      Officer: Is it true, Mr. Carey that you harbor violent feelings for Mrs. Bobek?
      Drew: That's ridiculous.
      Officer: If it's that ridiculous, why did 20 co-workers hear you say: (reads off of statement) "I'm going to kill you"?
      Drew: That's just a figure of speech!
      Officer: (continues reading from statement) "That's not a figure of speech. You are dead!"
      Drew: No, you're reading it all wrong.
      (Drew repeats the lines, acting as if he said it jokingly and cheerfully)
      Drew: I'm gonna kill ya! That's not a figure of speech, yoooouuu'rrrrre dead!
      (the police officers stare at Drew, not believing him)
      Drew: I want a lawyer.

    • Detective Streible (to Drew): Hey, if you walk or fry, it's all the same to us. We don't work on commission.

    • (After Drew mistakes the marketing executive for the janitor)
      Mimi: This prank brought to you by Mimi Bobeck! Bobeck: humiliating pigs since 1995! Ha ha ha!
      Drew: I'm going to kill you! You hear me? And that's not a figure of speech. You are dead!

    • Drew: Will someone tell me what's going on here?
      Detective Streible: No, you tell us. Why did you try and kill Miss Bobeck this morning with your car?
      Drew: I don't know what the hell you're talking...wait, is she dead?

    • (Talking about Drew getting arrested)
      Mr. Wick: I must say, when something like this happens, the captain of the ship must take a good look at himself and ask, "Where did I go wrong?"
      Mimi: Oh, it's not your fault, Mr. Wick.
      Mr. Wick: What? I'm not blaming myself! I said "ship." Does this look like a ship? It's a store! It's everyone else's fault. It has nothing to do with me. (Walks away) Now, back to work, mateys. Full steam ahead.

    • Detective Patterson: We've got enough evidence to indict you. Looks like you're going to prison for a long time.
      Drew: Prison? I can't go to jail. I can't live with a bunch of strange men. I can't even go to the bathroom in the mall.

    • Steve: This is supposed to be the happiest time of my life. How can I get married if my brother's going to prison?
      Mimi: Don't worry. He'll be having his honeymoon the same time we are.

    • Drew: Thanks, you really saved me.
      Steve: There is one thing you can do to repay me. Read this toast at our wedding.
      Drew: Oh, I would love to. Is this the only copy?
      (Crumples up the paper with the toast written on it)
      Steve: Nope.
      Drew: Ah, crap.

    • Kate: Drew wouldn't hurt a fly. He's like Jesus with glasses!
      Det. Streible: You like the bad boys, don't you, ma'am?
