    The show opens with Drew having a dream about Kate getting married. He wakes up outside, in a lawn chair. Lewis and Oswald are about to leave, so Drew tries to get them to stay, so they can help him stay awake. Nicki comes out of the house and gets upset at something Drew says and goes back inside. Finally, Lewis and Oswald leave, so Drew decides to take Speedy for a walk. Since Speedy is asleep, Drew has to carry him.



    Traylor comes into the office and she and Mimi trade insults at one another. Kellie comes in to see Drew. Since she's curious about what exactly his job is, so she asks him about it. Drew admits he's not really sure what his job is, he just tries to make himself look busy. Mr. Wick comes in as a janitor and tells Mimi he's planning on taking the store over some day. Mimi tells him not to announce his plans quite so loudly. Scott and Evan then come in and announce the website is going live soon and they need someone to work overnight. Since Drew doesn't want to go home and go to sleep, he volunteers, even though he doesn't know what the job entails.



    At Drew's, Nicki is eating a pizza when Oswald and Lewis come in. Nicki's depressed about how she looks, so Lewis and Oswald flip a coin to determine who will take her out. Lewis ends up "winning", and mentions to Oswald he's going to take Nicki to Arby's.



    Back at the office, Drew's relaxing, and he falls asleep for a minute and ends up having another dream about Kate. Drew quickly wakes up and turns on some music to keep him awake. He dances around the office and then starts playing little games to stay awake.



    The next day, Scott and Evan come in and tell Drew that they're worried about how little sleep Drew's gotten recently, so they tell him to go home and get some sleep. Drew struggles to speak, and tells them he'll go home.



    On the bus, Drew talks to the driver, Tony, who tells Drew to give up his ideas of getting Kate back. Tony then mentions Kate was on the bus earlier that day, and it excites Drew. It seems their discussion was all a dream. Drew wakes up and talks to Tony for real this time, and he tells Tony all about why he's there and how he doesn't have a car.



    We now join Lewis and Nicki out on their "date," but when it's obvious Lewis doesn't want to be there with her, Nicki starts to leave, so Lewis gets her to sit back down. They talk about how they have something in common: they really want to kill certain people, and they even have a short list.



    At the Warsaw, Drew asks Tim to "freshen him up," so Tim comes over and smacks him. Mimi comes in and offers to smack him as well, but she's really just there to get some food. Drew asks Mimi to stay there and keep him awake and she finally realizes that this is all about Kate's leaving. Finally, Mimi decides help him out, so she takes him out for some fun.



    At the dump, Mimi hands Drew a shotgun. They walk away from the car and begin shooting things, and Drew seems to enjoy shooting the crap out of stuff.



    Lewis walks Nicki home, and he kisses her with quite a lot of force and really catches her by surprise. Nicki thanks him for making her realize that she deserves a lot more in life and mentions she will be moving out of Drew's house. Oswald comes over and talks to Lewis about the date with Nicki. Drew comes home and he feels a lot better after blowing up things with Mimi. Drew announces he's going to plan a marriage for May 19th, even though he hasn't found a woman to marry. Drew tells Lewis and Oswald that he chose that day because TV re-runs begin that day, so it's a good time for a honeymoon.



    The show ends with an extended cut of a scene from the "Cleveland Rocks" opening.



    The general plot for the episode was fairly average, but the comedy writing was pretty solid for the most part. I enjoyed seeing Drew and Mimi blowing things up at the dump... that was a rather unusual thing to see.moreless
