Episode Summary

EDIT
Mr. Bell hires Mimi as his assistant to prevent her from filing a complaint against the store for Drew's so-called "harassment" of her. She vows to make Drew's life a living hell. While conducting interviews for the window dresser position, Drew develops a rapport with Lisa, an attractive applicant who engages him in friendly banter. She seems very interested in Drew. However, Lisa is the most qualified applicant for the job, and Drew fears that it would be improper for management to date an employee. She takes the initiative and asks Drew out, but they agree to avoid the appearance of a date. Mimi and some co-workers catch them kissing at the Warsaw. Drew decides that he wants to keep seeing Lisa, and will ignore what others think. Unfortunately, Mr. Bell tells him that his relationship with Lisa is making the staff uncomfortable. Drew has to break up with her so that she won't be fired. Meanwhile, Drew tries to deal with the antics of his redneck neighbors--including a man who wants to install one of his "discount stereos" in Drew's car, and a grown daughter who just wants to have his baby.moreless

    Drew, out playing pool, is suddenly joined by Kate, who had a bad date. Lewis soon shows up, after his date went bad, she kicked him out of the car. Then Oswald drops by. He borrowed Drew's car. Drew was really bothered with the idea that all of his friends knew that he never goes out on Saturday nights, he's so dependable that way. It was nice for both comedy and character development.



    At work, Drew interviews another woman, but it doesn't go so well. While escorting her out, he runs into Mimi, who was hired by Mr. Bell so she wouldn't go to the labor board. She's Mr. Bell's personal secretary. A woman, Lisa, comes in to be interviewed for the window displays job opening. The interview goes very well, they both seemed to be attracted to one another. I rather enjoyed this scene; they both did well in the scene as actors.



    Drew, Lewis, Oswald, and Kate drop by the Warsaw for a beer, where Drew tells them about Lisa. Drew's a little concerned about the whole thing because management isn't supposed to date employees. This sort of policy is in a lot of companies, so I wasn't at all surprised that they have it where Drew works.



    Back at home, Drew is bothered when the music from his neighbor's house becomes too loud. He goes over and yells at them. After they turn it off, Joel, the man of the house, offers Drew to install a new stereo system in his car for $100. Drew gives him the okay by saying it will double the value of his car.



    At work, Drew stops by the cosmetic department for a quick chat with Kate. Drew makes over to where Lisa is working on the mannequins. After a little flirting, Lisa asks him out on a date. Since they can't date, Drew says they can meet at the Warsaw for a non-date.



    At the Warsaw, Drew runs into Lewis and Oswald while waiting for Lisa. When she shows up, they move to a different table and order. To prove it isn't a date, Drew and Lisa order chili dogs and sloppy joes, and throw out the napkins. The non-date is spoiled when Mimi and some people from work show up. He's not allowed to date Lisa of course, so it makes for an awkward time.



    At home, Drew asks Kate how he looks. He's all dressed up in a suit and tie, and he even shaved his neck, which convinced Kate that he was indeed in love. When he leaves the house, Drew is upset when he finds his neighbor tore up his dash to put in the new radio. He gives Drew his truck to use for the ride to work for the day. Everyone is cramped in the truck but because of a bee problem, Kate gets stung by one of the bees.



    At work, Drew is yelled at by Mr. Bell for his relationship with Lisa, but since Drew is one of the best employees, it wouldn't make sense to fire him. He tells Drew to either break it off or fire her. Drew calls for Lisa, who shows up after a minute goes by. Drew decides it's best to break it off. They both agree it's the best thing; Lisa says they don't know one another long enough for him to risk his job. As Lisa leaves Drew's cubicle, they jokingly trade shots at one another.



    The show ends with Drew at home, opening his window, and being swarmed by bees from his neighbors.



    The second episode was pretty good, as you could see small improvements generally compared to the pilot. The plot with the stereo and bees didn't have a whole lot to it I have to admit, but it added Jules ended up being in the series for a few more episodes, so what's the hurt? Anyway, it was interesting to see Drew getting into a relationship so early in the series, although it didn't exactly work out as they had hoped.moreless
