Lewis and Oswald learn that Drew is in the institution. Only family is allowed to visit, so they check themselves in as patients so that they can talk to him. Drew plots to escape and reclaim his job. He leaves a message on his machine telling Kate what has happened to the guys and asking her to show up with a van the next day. Although they have stolen the master keys, Oswald and Lewis insist on breaking out by building a bomb and blowing a hole in the wall. Most of the other patients escape with them, but a large patient restrains Drew and keeps him from leaving. Kate doesn't think that he has made it to the van, but Oswald insists otherwise.

Drew is overwhelmed by the work required to get the store ready for opening, and cannot find any time to sleep. His behavior becomes increasingly erratic. He runs out of the new store site in a panic after the mannequins stage a revolt.

Drew hears some parrots taunting him from the trees outside his house and throws firecrackers at them. He is apprehended by the police and placed in a sanitarium. The doctor agrees that Drew is not crazy, and that his behavior was the result of stress and sleep deprivation. However, he must be observed for 72 hours and will miss the opening. Mimi visits Drew and admits that sh

Lewis, Oswald and Mimi are angry at Drew for making decisions for the business without consulting them, and point out that they already had the meat. They secretly serve the meat without telling Drew. Mimi doesn't tell Rachel until she has had three burgers. She becomes addicted to meat-eating, and begins to lose all passion for her causes because she feels like a hypocrite. Drew helps her find her way by renting a live cow from a slaughterhouse and telling her that they are going to kill it and make it dinner. He realizes that they are too different to be together, and tells her to continue her activism. She liberates the cow, costing Drew his thousand-do

Drew plans to call off the date, but Rachel insists that she didn't know that he was Lewis's friend. Rachel infuriates Mimi by throwing out some of her make-up because it is tested on animals. After sleeping with Drew, Rachel pleads with him for information on Lewis's project. He agrees after she tells him that Lewis may be in danger because DrugCo allows employees to work with toxic waste without informing them of the risk.

The gang turns off the bathroom lights to talk withou

However, he soon becomes convinced that his friends are all going to hell. He tries to shake them of their ""sinful"" ways, and breaks up Kate's date by standing outside with a bullhorn and calling her a whore.

Lewis insists that he is simply doing God's will, but has a change of heart after he is repeatedly struck by lightning. Steve fills in for Mimi at Winfred-Louder while she is on maternity leave. He does such a good job that everyone wants him to stay on permanently. Mimi announces that she is going to become a stay-at-home mom, but is very depressed.

Meanwhile, his friends hold a bedside vigil. Mimi even kisses him in the hopes that the shock to his system would wake him. The doctor gives him an injection to help him come around, but it doesn't work. Drew insists that he would rather stay in the coma, as it seems much better than his real life. As a last resort, the doctor suggests that they remove him from the respirator. The shock will cause him to either come out of the coma or die.
