Episode Summary

EDIT
Y2K, You're Okay
AIRED:
Doreen, a "little person" who works at the store, chooses Mimi as her idol and begins emulating her dress and behavior. Mimi is a little freaked out, but soon takes to the idea and has Doreen help her play pranks on Drew. Sharon takes note of the fact that Kate can get Drew to do whatever she wants without having to make much of an effort. The store's computers fail a test for Y2K compliance, and a glitch causes excerpts from Drew's diary to appear on all the computer screens. A panicked Drew seeks the aid of the store's computer expert, Hal. He convinces Drew that there will be a massive computer failure and total chaos on New Year's Eve. Drew and the gang ask Sharon to build them a bomb shelter. Lewis carries his life savings ($37,000) around in a garbage bag. Mimi and Doreen print out copies of Drew's diary and sell them at the Warsaw. Sharon discovers that in the passage where Drew described sleeping with her for the first time, he accidentally wrote Kate's name. She concludes that Drew is in love with Kate, and wants nothing to do with him. Doreen upsets Mimi by expressing regret about ruining Drew's relationship. Mimi tells Drew that he is to blame, because he obviously wrote Kate's name for a reason. Drew tries to win back Sharon by buying her a puppy and training it to seek out the one he loves the most. It heads straight for Kate. Drew attempts to prove himself by locking Kate out of the shelter and insisting that he would let her get obliterated. He says that Sharon is the woman he will be with forever, so she takes him back.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • It seems a bit hypocritical of Sharon to be so angry with Drew for writing Kate's name instead of hers in his diary, because in the VERY NEXT EPISODE, "Drew Goes to the Browns Game," we learn that Sharon was cheating on Drew the whole time (or rather, she was cheating on her boyfriend with Drew the whole time).

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (After Oswald sees Doreen)
      Oswald: Oh, Mimi finally had a litter.
      Drew: Yeah, I guess Satan's not as busy as I thought he was.

    • (After Mimi and Drew see Doreen)
      Drew: Well, there goes the theory that you were cute when you were small.

    • (the gang has withdrawn their life savings)
      Drew: That's a pretty big bag, Lewis. How much you got?
      Lewis: $37,000.
      Drew: $37,00?! Mister "Hey, I'm a little short this week-Can I borrow a buck?"
      Lewis: I must've said that, what, 37,000 times?
      Oswald: You had $37,000 and I had to pawn my grandmother's ring last year to make rent? You cried with me!
      Lewis: Well, it was sad. The only thing that got me through it was knowing that I'm stinking rich!

    • Lewis (to Drew, suggesting a romantic gesture for Sharon): Okay, find out what she loves most in the world, then kill it. That'll move you up a notch.

    • Lewis (about Drew): Why is it he's never more gay than when he has a girlfriend?

  • NOTES (1)

    • The ending to this episode is a spoof of the Twilight Zone episode, "Time Enough at Last." At the end, the main character breaks his glasses and thus, will not be able to read the books he had ready. At the end of this episode, Drew has Playboy magazines ready, except he breaks his glasses before he can look at them.
