Episode Summary

What's Wrong with This Episode III
Mr. Soulard is impressed by Buzz Beer, and offers to buy the company for $40,000. Drew accepts the deal, but his friends refuse to back him. Soulard threatens to fire Drew unless the sale proceeds. Drew offers Lewis and Oswald jobs at the store so that they will not need the money from Buzz Beer. Lewis agrees to take some vacation time from DrugCo and try out the arrangement, but Oswald rejects an offer to work in the lingerie department. Lewis and Drew work on a plan to win over Oswald and Kate, but it goes awry. Oswald gives them his support in exchange for a larger percentage of the sale and a bunny rabbit. After accepting the checks, the gang discovers a sign in the garage that says "4 Friends, 4 Ever, 4 Beer." They are all saddened to see their dream come to an end. Drew tells Soulard that they want Buzz Beer back. Soulard demands much more than he paid, meaning that the gang will go into debt and never be able to sell the company again.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • As one of the goofs, the "Cleveland Rocks" theme song was changed from the version done by The Presidents of The United States of America to one done by Ian Hunter.

    • The sign says 4friends 4beer 4ever. But really the Buzz Beer founders also included Lisa and Jay.

    • According to this episode, Drew says that Lewis was a straight A student until he met Oswald. In "Drew vs. Mimi, Part II," however, Lewis reveals that he was a chemist for DrugCo before he unwittingly released a strain of bacteria and was demoted to janitor. To be a chemist for what I imagine to be an imminent corporation, Lewis would still have to maintain the high credentials, which would means straight A's, superb school, and other options.

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (2)

    • Craig Ferguson does not appear in this episode.

    • When Kate enters pregnant, it is given as a goof.
      In fact, Christa Miller was pregnant and gave birth about three months after this episode aired. That's why we dont see her stomach during the following episodes. (Kate is in bed, in a dress etc.)


    • Pinocchio: I see dead people.

      This is a famous line from the the 1999 film, "The Sixth Sense."

    • Pinnochio appears in a brief scene in a reference to Drew Carey's first movie, "Geppetto." On first airing, Drew mentions the upcoming airdate of the movie (syndication removes this bit).

    • Oswald: Hey! I only played a hillbilly in one movie, and actually I'm quite bright.

      Diedrich Bader (who plays Oswald) appeared in the 1993 movie remake of "The Beverly Hillbillies" as Jethro Bodine.
