Episode Summary

EDIT
Kate gets a new boyfriend and has less time to spend with Drew, Lewis and Oswald. The guys run into Jay Clemens, an old buddy from junior high school, at the Warsaw. He has recently gotten a divorce. They begin hanging out with him a lot. Kate breaks up with her boyfriend (after his carnival leaves town), and is furious to discover that Jay seems to have taken her place with the gang. He angers her further by giving her advice about her love life. After the guys side with Jay over Kate in a dispute over where to eat dinner, Kate refuses to talk to them and says that she will not go to Drew's birthday party. Drew pleads with her to re-consider, but she only agrees to attend after he asks Jay to stay away. Kate arranges a surprise visit from baseball star Dave Winfield, mistakenly believing that he and Drew are old friends. Jay infuriates Kate by stopping by to drop off Drew's gift. They talk things out in the kitchen and admit that they are attracted to one another. Drew is surprised when the pair begins dating. The guys annoy Kate by telling Jay about all of her bad habits.moreless

  • Since Kate has a new boyfriend, she's spending very little time with the guys.

    Hanging out at the Warsaw, Drew, Lewis and Oswald are all talking about Kate, who has been spending a lot of time with Ken, and practically no time with them. They don't have her to talk to about their problems. The guys run into Jay Clemens, someone they knew in junior high, so he joins them for a beer. He just recently got divorced and moved back to Cleveland.



    At Drew's house, Drew, Jay, Lewis, and Oswald are hanging out, playing the board game, Life when Kate stops by. When she meets Jay, they don't hit it off at all. He's using Kate's blue car game piece and wearing her slippers, it looks like he's trying to replace her. Kate reveals that she just broke up with Ken, so she is a little bummed.



    At the store, a security guard, Chuck stops Mimi after he notices her going through Drew's things. Mimi stuck a dead fish in one of the drawers, but Drew got her back by gluing her phone together. Lewis, Oswald, and Kate all stop by Drew's cubicle to ask if he's ready to go to lunch. Jay shows up, and he suggests Italian, while Kate suggests Chinese. All of the guys agree with Jay to go eat Italian, which annoys the heck out of Kate.



    Jay, Drew, Oswald, and Lewis, all stop by the Warsaw to have a drink. They talk about Kate, who has been ignoring them for the past several days. Kate then stops by and ignores the guys again, going right to a table of ladies from work. Drew talks to Kate, and apologizes for everything, but Kate doesn't want to go to his birthday party if Jay is there. Drew walks back over to the table Jay is sitting at, and he tells Jay about what's going on, so Jay says he won't go to the birthday party, and that it's fine with him. Hearing about the party, the other girls from work want to go with Lewis and Oswald.



    At Drew's place, they're all having a big party. There is probably two dozen people attending, even Kate is there. They decide to play "This is Your Life", which Dave Winfield, a famous baseball player stops by. When Jay comes in, Kate throws a fit, so Drew has them go to the kitchen and work it out. Kate reveals that she is attracted to him. When Drew, Lewis, and Oswald go to check on Kate and Jay, he finds them making out.



    The show ends with Drew, Lewis, Oswald, Kate, and Jay playing pool in the snow. Jay asks the guys for any advice for dating Kate.



    The writing in this episode was average, there weren't really any truely hilarious moments in the show, but it offers up a new character, Jay Clemons, who stays with the show for little while, and gives Kate a boyfriend. The way the two of them got together made for a somewhat funny moment, when Drew, Lewis, and Oswald catch them making out in the kitchen.moreless
