Episode Summary

Pretty Baby
Drew suggests that the store promote its new babywear department by holding a "most beautiful baby" contest. Steve and Mimi plan to enter Gus, while Lewis and Oswald back Colleen's nephew. Steve and Mimi prepare for a weekend getaway, but learn that the babysitter is unavailable. Drew volunteers to babysit. Mimi is adamantly opposed to the idea, but Steve talks her into it. Drew tries to teach Gus to say "mama" in the hopes of impressing Mimi and proving that he is a good influence. While Drew tries to help Kate get something from a child-proofed drawer, they get locked in the bathroom. Gus starts riding around on Speedy, but is unharmed. Drew manages to unhinge the bathroom door. He takes out his frustration by flipping off the door. Steve arrives, and is horrified when Gus copies Drew and flips him off. They try to make him forget how to do this by teaching him to give a thumbs-up sign. During the contest, Oswald and Lewis disgust everyone by trying to have their baby perform dangerous tricks. Gus wins the contest, but shocks the crowd by flipping off the American flag during a photo opportunity. His title and prizes are revoked. Mimi blames herself, as she assumes that Gus saw her flip off a driver once. Drew begs Steve not to tell Mimi the truth. When Mimi is still depressed after a week, Drew confesses. Mimi says that she will never let him near her son again. Just then, Gus says his first word, "Mama." After learning that Drew taught it to him, a touched Mimi has a change of heart and lets him babysit.moreless
