Drew and Mimi continue to bicker constantly, especially after she belittles him in front of an interviewee. Mimi throws a stapler at Drew and ends up breaking the window of Bell's office door. Bell suspends Drew and Mimi and threatens to fire them unless they get their act together. Oswald and Lewis fill in on Jay's moving crew. Drew tags along when they make a delivery to Mimi's apartment and tries to talk with her. He finds a cabinet filled with photographs of him, and fears that Mimi is secretly in love with him. Drew gives Suzie a job in jewelry so that Bell will re-hire Mimi as his assistant.

  • Drew gets an assistant, but not the one he wants.

    Sitting on the couch, Drew gives Lisa a call. She's bathing the dog, but he's in the mood for some sex talk. While they start chatting, Oswald interrupts them by calling Drew on the other line. Then Kate calls Lisa, interrupting them again. The operator then interrupts Drew saying there's an emergency call from his mother. It turns out it's Lewis, who wants to know which is faster, a midget or a pig.



    At the office, Lisa and Kate stop by Drew's cubicle with a dummy and a large pencil. There is a sale on large things in another area of the store. Suzie walks out of Mr. Bell's office, and Drew gets a call from Mr. Bell. Drew is getting a new assistant since Suzie is now going to be Mr. Bell's assistant. As Drew watches Mimi move her trolls to his own desk, he realizes that Mimi is his new assistant which upsets him.



    At Drew's house, Lisa is icing down Drew's bruised legs. Mimi kicked the heck out of his legs, under the desk. Kate and Jay drop by. Jay is having some back problems and needs some help with his moving company, so Lewis, Oswald, and Drew volunteer to help him out.



    A woman stops by Drew's cubicle. She's interviewing for a position at the store. While Drew interviews the woman for the job, Mimi interrupts Drew, asking rude questions. He then asks the woman to wait in the other room while he chews Mimi out. Mimi and Drew end up getting into a fight, and get suspended by Mr. Bell.



    At Mimi's house, there's a delivery from the store. Jay, Lewis, Oswald, and Drew are all there, making the delivery. Drew had to talk to her, but she doesn't want to speak to him. Lewis notices a cupboard, which is full of photos of Drew. It looks like Mimi is a stalker or something. They decide to run out before asking any questions. In the delivery truck, Lewis, Drew, Oswald, and Jay are talking about all of the photos Mimi has of Drew. Oswald thinks maybe she loves Drew. Drew dismisses the whole thing.



    At work, Drew and Kate talk about Mimi. After Kate leaves, he goes over to Suzie who is busy working on her makeup. He is able to convince her to get a job in jewelry, hoping Mimi will be moved back to be Mr. Bell's assistant. As Mimi comes in, Drew decides to play psychologist with Mimi, and then just comes right out about the cupboard, and ask her why she has all of the photos. She reveals that she is sending photos of Drew, along with a lonely-sounding letter, to prisoners. Drew gets a call from Mr. Bell saying Suzie is going to jewelry, and Mimi is happy about not working for Drew, but she wanted the job in jewelry. She then tells Drew that she put some things in one of his drawers for him to review, but when he opens it, a bunch of marbles come flying out, as the drawer was put in upside down.



    The show ends with Lewis, over at Mimi's, trying to sell her a pair of Antonio Banderas-worn boxers. She finds out that they're not real, since they are made of the wrong material, according to the Antonio Banderas fan newsletter, so Lewis runs out.



    The moment in the delivery truck had a few hilarious moments. I enjoyed this episode quite a bit in fact.moreless
