Episode Summary

EDIT
The High Road to China
AIRED:
Drew pulls off an elaborate practical joke against Mimi and boasts that she will never be able to top it. A few days later, he wakes up to find himself on the Great Wall of China with no money or passport. Mimi has left a tape recording in his pocket in which she taunts him. Drew gets a ride into a small town, where a young woman who speaks English offers him shelter. She gets him a job helping her family sell chickens so that he can eventually afford bus fare to Beijing and go to the U.S. embassy. Kate, Lewis and Oswald grow concerned after they discover that Drew never made his scheduled business trip to Winnipeg. Mimi brags about sending Drew to China. She explains that she had her father's secretary drug Drew and put him on a courier flight. The gang has no idea what to do to help him. Ming finally agrees to drive Drew to Beijing, but the embassy is closed for Thanksgiving. He tries to make enough money to get himself a hotel room by putting on a sock puppet show, but only ends up losing a shoe to a boy who believed it was for sale. Drew believes that he is being arrested after some officers take him away. He later learns that they were just trying to get him to apply for a vendor permit. Drew manages to make a phone call to his friends, but the line goes dead before he can give any information. Drew is thrilled to learn that there is a McDonald's in the city. Unfortunately, he doesn't have enough money for any food. After he gives an impassioned rendition of "You Deserve a Break Today," the manager takes pity on him, buying him a meal and giving him the number of a customer service line that can direct him to help from the U.S. government.moreless
