Episode Summary

Drew's Physical
Kate stuns Lewis by telling him that she is in love with Drew. She refuses to help Drew with a scheme to get a co-worker to go out with him, and becomes very jealous. Winfred-Louder employees must undergo physicals after the store switches insurance providers. Anyone who fails will lose health benefits. Oswald suggests that Drew have Lewis take the physical in his place. Their ruse is successful, but the exam also includes a psychological test. Lewis's answers cause everyone to believe that Drew is crazy. He takes advantage of this to get out of work, but is forced to go before the store therapist. Dr. Zinneman realizes that he didn't take the test, and says that Drew will just have to take a physical himself. However, he worries that Drew has low self-esteem, and recommends that he avoid relationships for a while. Kate must put her plans to share her feelings with Drew on hold after learning of the therapist's declaration.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Drew: Hey, what were you doing upstairs?
      Oswald: I was using your blow dryer to defrost my crotch.
      Drew: Well, you just bought yourself a blow dryer mister!

    • Drew (After sliding out of his chair): Somebody put vaseline on my seat!
      Mimi: I hope you sent him flowers.

    • Drew: If I didn't run away from my fears, I wouldn't get any exercise, now would I?

    • Mimi: Laws, laws, laws! You can't fire the crazy people. You can't spank other people's kids even though they deserve it. Land of the free, my ass!

    • (Lewis is keeping the ice cream on his crotch like Oswald was doing when Kate walks in the door)
      Kate: What are you doing?
      Lewis: Not freezing my penis, that's for sure.

    • Oswald: Cool! I've had the ice cream in my lap so long, it's frozen my crotch!
      Lewis: You better find some way to defrost it before you do permanent damage, you idiot.
      Oswald: Yeah, well, maybe I'm gonna keep it frozen so mine stays young and smooth, while yours gets old and wrinkly!

    • Lewis: Mi prostate es su prostate.

    • Kate: I don't believe this. You're taking advice from Oswald, the man who swallowed a sponge to soak up beer so he wouldn't get drunk.
      Oswald: Did I get drunk?
      Kate: We had to take you to the hospital. You were legally dead for two minutes!
      Oswald: Did I get drunk?

    • (While Lewis is taking Drew's physical)
      Drew: You know, I really gotta thank Lewis for doing this for me. Do you think they make a card that says, "Thanks for letting a stranger sift through your bowels for me"?
      Kate: Hey, if you guys actually get away with this, I'm sending Lewis to my gynecologist.
      Drew: Uh, it's a long story, but it wouldn't be his first time.
