  • Drew has the perfect new boss: He insults Mimi, has the same intrests in Drews life, and is giving Drew a promotion. The only problem is he dies right before giving Drew that promotion from a heart attack at Drews Halloween party.moreless

    This was a very good Halloween episode. Henry Winkler was perfect for Drews new boss and the idea of Drew using his bosses corpse as a dummy to try to trick the board was hilarious! Also the subplot involving Lewises Frankenstein look after a horrible trip to the dentist office was funny. The episode may of been flawed in many ways, the series is showing it's age, but the cast keeps it flowing with good jokes, especially Oswald in his rediculous costume. Still it's good episode and it deserves alot of credit for being really funny.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Oswald (asking about going to a dentist who works on a boat): Hey, are you sure you want to go through with this?
      Lewis: You can't just judge a book by its cover. Did we run out of that restaurant when that rat had its babies in the salad bar?

    • Oswald (after looking at Mr. Newsome's dead body): If this was a scary movie, this would be the part where he comes back to life and kills us all.
      Drew: Let's get the hell out of here. (Drew, Kate, Oswald, Lewis, and Steve run from the living room to the kitchen)
      Kate: I can't believe you guys are afraid of a dead body. (she sits down and feels a sharp pain in her back) AHHHHHHHH! He's trying to kill me! (she realizes that it is the fake knife she has in her back for her costume) Oh, never mind.

    • Drew: I've always wanted to make people happy, so it was either ventriloquism or stripping.

    • Kate: Hey Drew. Guess who I am. (Turns around to reveal a knife in her back.)
      Drew: Let me guess. You are Kate O'Brien.
