Episode Summary

Drew's Life After Death
Drew is shocked when his obituary appears in the newspaper. He learns that Mimi is responsible; his doctor sent a death certificate to Steve when Drew was in the coma, and Mimi retrieved it from the mail. Her actions trigger a "doomsday" prank that Drew had arranged in the event of his early death. She gets handcuffed to a chair and has to watch half-naked fat men dance around. Mimi sends the death certificate out and has Drew's credit cards and bank accounts cancelled. Drew becomes depressed over his brief and unspectacular obituary. Lewis and Oswald reveal that they took out a life insurance policy on Drew in high school, and have received a large claim. Drew points out that they are breaking the law. They promise to return the money after he is declared alive, but will spend the profit they made betting it on the horses. Wick is able to take time off as a "bereaved spouse" and go to Hawaii. Drew fears that he has wasted his life, as he seems to be helping more people through his "death" than when he was alive. He volunteers at a crisis center. Oswald and Lewis also volunteer, but become bored and decide to quit after a few minutes. Drew realizes that the people seeking help actually have better lives than he does. He starts bawling and is asked to leave. He demands his share of the insurance payoff and disappears. He shows up a few days later with a motorcycle.moreless
