    Tonight's show opens with Lewis and Oswald walking into Drew's kitchen with their new robot. They built it for a new battlebots competition at the Warsaw. As as test, the robot ends up destroying Drew's kitchen table. When Oswald tries some of the cookie dough Drew bought, Drew tells him his parents are coming over for two weeks. Drew's excited about having his parents over because he's had a string of bad luck lately and could use some company. Kate then stops by and shows Drew something he's missing. Since their breakup, Kate's been taking yoga lessons, and she's especially limber now. Just then, Drew's parents come over, along with Mimi. It seems that Drew's plans to spend time with his parent isn't likely to happen. Mimi's got the next week all planned out, and Drew's not going to be involved in it by the looks of it.



    At Steve and Mimi's, we see Steve, Mimi, George, and Beulah playing cards. George and Steve go to sleep, while Mimi and Beulah stay in the living room to watch TV. When they come across a porn channel, they start talking about sex. Beulah reveals to Mimi that George has never made her orgasm. Mimi suggests that she tell George that he has to make her orgasm once in a while, or she won't have sex with him.



    Back at home, Drew is talking to Kate, while Lewis and Oswald test out their robot, which is becoming less and less capable at killing things. George then comes over and he's angry about something Beulah said.



    The next day, Drew walks into work and asks Mimi about what happened between his parents. Mimi comes right out and tells him George hasn't made Beulah orgasm, absolutely shocking Drew. Mimi tells Drew to help his parents.



    Later that night, Steve comes over after Drew invited him. When Drew tells him why he invited him over, Steve is flabbergasted. He's not any more interested in talking to his father than Drew is. A minute later, George comes down and Drew and Steve try to subtly bring up the subject, and George ends up being upset with the two of them. George insists that the orgasm is a myth, like the unicorn, but Drew tells him otherwise. George tells him he's fought in Korea, raised two boys, worked a job he hated for years, and he just wants to lie down and "get mine," as George put it. Drew tried to use a potato to explain things to George, but when Lewis and Oswald come over, they insist using battlebots to demonstrate things more clearly. When they unleash the robots on one another, it becomes clear that it was a bad idea, so George walks out of the room.



    Drew stops by the Warsaw to find George, but he's not there. Tonight is the night for the big battlebot tournament, so there's a ring set up in the middle of the bar. George and Beulah then stop by. It seems George was able to make Beulah orgasm afterall, so they're going back home, to Florida. Lewis and Oswald walk in with their new battlebot, Lloyd. When they're challenged by a tiny robot, they decide to take on the challenger. Unfortunately, the fight doesn't go so well; Lloyd ends up beating itself up with its own hammer, and ultimately killing it, sending out a plume of dark smoke.



    The show ends with Lewis and Oswald tracking down Lloyd, who has been dancing at the gay bar Drew was briefly shown in.



    The plot for tonight's show was very good, and I loved the way the acting matched the writing. Everything was done very well, although I thought the battlebots subplot was very weak.moreless

    • (Drew and Steve are attempting to persuade their father to be a better sex partner)
      Steve: Look, Dad, this isn't easy for us.
      Drew: Can't you, at least, make an effort?
      George: Now, you listen to me. While most guys were pushing pencils, I was torching Commies out of caves in Korea. I've worked at a job I hated for 40 years. I've raised two boys. I'm tired, damn it! I just want to lay there and get mine!

    • George: The female orgasm is a myth... like the unicorn.

    • Mimi (to Drew's parents): Actually, we're going to the zoo all day tomorrow.
      Drew: Ahhh...your parents are finally going to meet my parents.

    • Steve: You're more familiar with Mom's private parts.
      Drew: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
      Steve: You're younger! You were the last one out!

    • Beulah: Kate, since Drew's our son, we told everyone in Florida that you cheated on him.
      George: So if you're ever in Florida, you're the cheater.
      Kate: So everyone in Florida thinks I'm a slut, so what? They've thought that since spring break 1981. HA!

    • Drew (to Steve): I thought we'd watch the game for a while, then at halftime, instead of throwing the football around we could teach Dad how to get Mom off.

    • Drew (after seeing the "BattleBot"): It's a lot better looking then some of the dates you brought over here. Aren't you afraid it's gonna outsmart you and make you its slaves?
      Oswald: Drew, its head is a toaster.
      Drew: I repeat...
