  • Is Kate pregnant?

    Kate walks in to see Drew staying in bed.

    Kate opens the door and in come the Go-Gos. Kate wants them to excite Drew and get him out of the funk he seems to be in.

    Drew asks them what they think of Cleveland, just as they're about to leave. They then start to sing the theme song for the show.

    At the store, Steve comes in with news about the sex of his child. Mimi tells him to open the letter, and it turns out they'll be having a boy. Drew congratulates them.

    Drew walks into Mr. Wick's office with a list of things he's done to Drew. He's planning on duing Mr. Wick. Mr. Wick's having more problems. His work visa is expiring, and he's trying to get an American citizen to marry him, so he can stay in the country.

    Mr. Wick wants Drew to marry him. In turn, Drew will get his job back and a 10% raise. Drew says no, and he'll add this to his lawsuit.

    At home, Drew is celebrating the fact that he's still unemployed. Drew told Lewis and Oswald about Mr. Wick's proposal. They then told Kate about it. Kate then tells Drew that she's "late". He had no idea what she was talking about. The other two didn't know either, of course. Drew eventually figures it out when he finds the pregnancy test box.

    At home, Drew walks in to see Speedy sitting next to the table. Drew takes a doll out of a bag and Drew wants to see how Speedy will react to the new baby. Speedy tears off the doll's head.

    Mimi and Steve walk in and Drew tells them about the baby on the way. They congradulate him on the news.

    Kate comes home, and tells Drew that she's not pregnant after all. Drew was a little disappointed, while Kate was happy because she's making progress in her job.

    Lewis and Oswald come in wearing suits. They're sad because their goldfish, Mr. Goldfish died. They ask Drew to say a few words, and he says he'll go get the Bible, and he's meet them next to the toilet.

    At work, Mr. Wick shows Drew the fancy desk and chair he could have.

    Mimi comes in with a gift, but Drew had to tell her Kate wasn't pregnant after all. Drew then talked to another employee about he and his wife not having kids. He and his wife have a suicide pact, and they'll kill one another next week in Florida.

    In a dream, Drew is surrounded by 8 children, all of who look like him...well they have the big glasses.

    Drew wakes Kate up in her sleep to talk about having kids. Kate doesn't want to talk about it, but he wasn't willing to put it off. Drew says he'd be willing to be a stay-at-home dad. Being over 40, Drew's a little concerned that he may have waited too long to have kids.

    Drew comes down and drinks a beer with Speedy. Mr Wick comes in to up the offer to include company car, parking space, etc. Drew says yes, and Mr Wick runs off to call his mother about the good news.

    The show ends with a little scene with Drew in a nursing home. A funny little ending to the episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Same-sex marriage is not actually legal in Vermont. Civil unions are, but they're only recognized under Vermont state law, not the Federal government. It would be impossible for Mr. Wick to get citizenship by "marrying" Drew.

    • It doesn't stop there. In "The Engagement," one of the questions Oswald asks Kate (during the competition between Drew and him to see who is more compatible with his girlfriend) is about how many children she wants. I can't remember if she replies one or two (she changes her answer at one point), but it sure wasn't zero. Plus, the entire episode "Kate's Family" centered on her desire to have children. She becomes so enamored with the neighbor kids that she is babysitting that she starts to think of them as her own and tries to trick them into staying with her after their mother returns. At the end, she complains to Drew about how much she wants a life with a nice, supportive guy and a couple of kids. Maybe it could be argued that this is different, because she was actually in a position of thinking she was pregnant. However, if she always wanted to have kids in the past and now has found the love of her life, why would she change her mind now? If the writers couldn't think of a more plausible reason to break up Drew and Kate than this, then maybe they shouldn't have done it.

    • Kate says she doesn't want to have kids, but in "Drew Live," she tells Lewis she'd be willing to make that sacrifice: "9 months without beer, but after that I'd have a little drinking buddy."

  • QUOTES (9)

    • (After Drew walks into Mr. Wick's office)
      Mr. Wick: Good god, Carey; you're fired and you've still got a better attendence than the other employees.

    • Drew (to Kate): Do you know where my pee bottle is?

    • Mr. Wick (to Drew): You zig and zag, but your breath is on my fluffy cotton tail.

    • Drew (after Speedy tears the head off the doll): I hope a real baby has a stronger neck.

    • Drew (talking about what Kate would be like pregnant): Wow, her boobs are gonna be huge!

    • Kate (talking about the benefits of not having any children): We're never gonna have to see any shows "on ice."

    • Drew (to Mr. Wick): You know, someday I will be trapped in a loveless, sexless marriage--but it's not gonna be with YOU.

    • Mr. Wick: Is it so hard to love a bankrupt, middle-aged English-man with one testicle?
      Drew: Well, you are in America--the Land of Meat and Potatoes, not Meat and PotatO.

    • (Mr. Wick needs a green card marriage.)
      Mr. Wick: I can't get married! All women I know hate me!
      Drew: Don't forget the fellas.
      (Drew gets up to leave.)
      Mr. Wick: Wait a second. I did forget the fellas. All I have to do is marry a man!
      Drew: You can't marry a man.
      Mr. Wick: Yes, I can! There's a state where it's legal now! (Gets down on one knee) Drew, will you marry me in Vermont, the state that makes New Hampshire nervous?
