Episode Summary

EDIT
Volunteer
AIRED:
Drew's pastor convinces him to volunteer at a retirement home whose residents have a particularly bad reputation. When Mr. Wick learns of this, he sucks up to Mrs. Louder by suggesting that the store get some good publicity by forcing all employees to "volunteer" at retirement homes on the weekend. Gus, one of the residents, convinces Drew to ease the seniors' boredom by taking them along to the store and letting them help with inventory. Gus takes a bunch of photographs and convinces a local TV reporter that Drew is abusing the residents. The home receives an outpouring of gifts from horrified citizens, and the elderly begin picketing Winfred-Louder. Mrs. Louder plans to issue a press release that says Drew is fired, then hide him at another store until he eventually apologizes at a press conference. Drew doesn't want to take the blame for something he didn't do, so she gives him one day to coax a confession from Gus. When he cannot get him to crack, Mrs. Louder shows up and threatens to buy the home and have it bulldozed. She has everyone sign waivers clearing Drew, and promises to replace all of the gifts they had received. Drew had ensured her cooperation by re-hiring Larry for the store and getting him to date Mrs. Louder again.moreless
