Episode Summary

EDIT
Tracy Bowl
AIRED:
The guys vie for the right to take Tracy to a wedding. The winner will officially be in a relationship with her, as he would have to travel out of town with her and meet her family. Sports broadcasters Bob Costas, Lynn Swann and Kenny Mayne provide a running commentary during the competition. Drew and Oswald separately slip Lewis strawberries and put fish oil in the wine in order to trigger his allergies during a dinner date with Tracy. The combined effects cause his face to puff up. He requires medical attention, and Tracy freaks out. Drew feels guilty and suggests that he and Oswald sabotage their own chances with Tracy so that Lewis can get the girl for a change. Oswald agrees, and makes himself look bad by parking in a handicapped space. Drew does not go along with the bargain, and Tracy rejects Oswald. Oswald and Lewis are furious at Drew for stabbing them in the back. Drew rigs a fortune telling machine at the Warsaw to say bad things about him, and blames it on Lewis. His plan works beautifully, as Tracy orders Lewis to stay away from her. However, Drew feels guilty after Tracy admits that she had really begun to like Lewis. He confesses the truth, and says that Lewis was the only one not to do anything underhanded. Tracy runs after him to apologize. Meanwhile, Kate begins her demanding new job as Mrs. Louder's assistant.moreless

    Kate walks into the Warsaw to see Drew. She's wearing a new outfit, thanks to the money Mrs. Louder gave her. Drew shows her Tony Bennett tickets he bought for he and Tracy. Kate tells him Oswald also bought tickets to the concert. Oswald comes in and shows Drew the tickets he bought for he and Tracy. Kate's beeper goes off, and it seems Mrs. Louder needs her for something. Lewis and Tracy come in, and Drew and Oswald come over, and it seems all three of them bought tickets to the concert. Tracy goes on to tell them about a marriage in the family, and she needs someone to go with her to meet her parents, which would be a big step in the relationship. Three sports announcers come in, and introduce this as "Tracy Bowl I".



    Back from commercial, we catch up with the announcers and they offer a profile of the three guys. We then join Lewis and Tracy on their date. Oswald comes in and joins Drew at a table. They did something to set up Lewis. At the table, Lewis' face is growing in size, because Drew put fish oil in his wine. It seems he's allergic to the stuff. Tracy runs out to get help, leaving Lewis upset. The sports announcers think this could be the end of Lewis' chances. Drew feels bad about what he did, and suggests they do something so bad, Tracy dumps them, so Lewis would win.



    At the Warsaw, Lewis and Tracy are at the bar, talking about the other night, when Oswald comes in, set for his date. Trying to lose Tracy, Oswald reveals he parked in two handicapped spots. Drew comes in with a handicapped guy, and he's angry at Drew. Drew tricked Oswald into taking a dive, so Oswald confronts him about it.



    At Winfred Louder, Kate's rushing to get things done, so she asks Mimi about how she gets things done. She manages to sell Kate a fake list of excuses, to help her out. When Mrs. Louder comes in a bag of shredded documents, and asks her to piece them back together. Drew comes in with Mr. Wick's dry cleaning when Lewis and Oswald come in. They've decided to join forces and beat Drew. They threaten to show Tracy a nude photo of Drew, but he warns them not to do it. Kate comes in and is asked by Drew about how to defeat Lewis. The sports announcers but in with a break, and they offer their opinion on who they think will win.



    Drew and Tracy come in, and Mimi insults Drew, so Drew walks up to Mimi and screams his desires for fast food, like Mimi is a clown outside of a burger joint. Drew walks over and puts some money in a fortune teller machine, and it insults Drew. Drew suggests Lewis may have had something to do with it. Lewis comes in and Tracy questions him about the fortune teller machine, but Lewis says he had nothing to do with it, and Drew ends up winning the competition. When Tracy tells him how much she likes Lewis, Drew confesses Lewis had nothing to do with the fortune teller machine set-up, so she runs out to talk to Lewis.



    The show ends with Bob Costas speaking to the winner, Lewis, while the losers, Oswald and Drew, are sitting in their shorts in the locker room.



    This was another pretty silly episode, but the gag with Lewis' face growing in size was hilarious.moreless
