Episode Summary

Mimi Moves In
Steve and Mimi buy a trailer and plan a trip to Dollywood. Mr. Soulard orders Mimi to alter her appearance and remove all personal items from her desk. When she objects, he puts walls around her desk so that she can't be seen by visitors. Mimi refuses to stay in her office, and Mr. Soulard fires her for failing to answer her phone. She and Steve decide to leave with the trailer, and never plan to return. They announce their plans when they stop by Drew's house to pick up some of Steve's belongings. A jubilant Drew offers to take their truck to the gas station for a fill-up; but has it stolen when he goes inside for a pretzel. Mimi and Steve are left stranded in Drew's yard, and cannot get a new truck because Steve allowed their insurance to lapse. Drew grows tired of the couple's monopolization of his food and utilities, and sickened by the continuous rocking of the trailer. Kate finds an affordable trailer park, and Drew offers to pay the first six months' rent. Mimi angrily refuses. Mimi begins hanging around inside the house, and will not go back to the trailer. She finally admits that she is claustrophobic. Drew realizes that he can get Mimi's job back because she has a medical condition. He decides that he would rather have Mimi at his workplace than at his home. Meanwhile, Lewis takes performance-enhancing drugs as he prepares to sleep with Leslie for the first time.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • (Lewis takes his numbing pill as he drinks a beer)
      Lewis: Well, here's to finally having a sex life...Again!
      (Oswald looks at him strangely as he takes a drink)
      Lewis: Heh. It's just like riding a bike, right?
      Oswald: Oh, sure.
      Drew: Hey, you know for the first couple times you might want to have your dad hold on to you so you don't fall off.

    • (Kate asks Lewis about his sexual relationship with Leslie)
      Lewis: Hey, hey, hey! A gentleman does not discuss intimate details. (Lewis's beeper goes off and he looks at his watch) Oh! Time to take the pill that numbs my genitals so I can last longer.
      Oswald: Why would you want to do that? Every woman I've been with wants it to go fast.

    • (Kate, Oswald, and Drew watch as Lewis makes out with Leslie)
      Kate: (speaking to Lewis) Looks like things are heating up with Leslie. Could it be time to put another notch in the bedpost?
      Drew: Yeah, it would be nice to have something to match the other one.

    • (Steve, Mimi, Kate, Oswald, and Drew are looking at brochures for mobile trailers)
      Steve: Look at this one, honey. This trailer, its got two bedrooms, a full bath, and a breakfast nook. I want to rent this one.
      Drew: Pretty big trailer. But are you sure Mimi can pull it?
      Mimi: Well maybe you can give me some tips, because you haul your ass out of bed every morning.

    • Drew (about Mimi): I can't take it anymore. She's either in my home, or at my work. I watch Unsolved Mysteries. People disappear all the time. Why can't she?

    • Mimi: I'm doing the laundry. Up next are my dainties.
      Drew: And never up again is my penis.

    • Drew (reacting to Mimi's decorations in his yard): Oh my God! All I need is a three-legged dog and I'm officially white trash.

    • (Steve and Mimi moved their trailer into Drew's backyard.)
      Drew: I couldn't sleep last night. The rocking trailer kept me up.
      Steve: Oh, sorry.
      Drew: And then, the screaming started.
      Steve: What was that?
      Drew: That was me, when I realized what was going on in the trailer!

    • Mimi: Turns out getting fired was the best thing that ever happened to me.
      Drew: MM-MM! Testify!

    • After Mimi is fired, Drew cartwheels through the office while listening to "Ding-Dong, The Witch Is Dead" from The Wizard of Oz.
