Trivia

The series finale's ending is a remake of the pilot's ending but with a small twist. In the pilot Kate, Oswald, and Lewis watch Drew from his kitchen window as he plays pool and in the finale it's Lewis, Oswald, Mr. Wick, Mimi, Kellie, and Drew Jr who are watching Drew. Both endings include Drew playing pool outside in the rain, in his yellow rain jacket, humming "Moon Over Parma". See more »

Quotes

[Drew and Mimi signed a truce, forbidding them to play pranks on each other]
Mimi Bobeck: Oops. Clumsy me. I just dropped a pen. I'm just gonna have to bend over and pick it up. Thus, leaving my butt open to a kick, stabbing, or the possible application of a humorous bumper sticker.
[bends over]
Drew Carey: I'm warning you, Mimi. You're waving a steak in front of a hungry dog... God, I want to hurt that butt!
Mimi Bobeck: It wants to be hurt!
Lewis Kiniski: [to Oswald] What are we watching here?

Innovative
2 December 2003 | by (Champaign, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I just read a review of this show on this site calling the show "absolutely awful." Wrong! This show is, and always has been innovative and creative. Carey and his cast have done things never seen before and have pushed the envelope of mundane sitcoms. We should all be thanking the creators & producers of this show for giving us an alternative to the run-of-the-mill sitcom bilge that has been pumped out over the past few years. One day, this program will be regarded as one of the most influential television program of our time. Thanks Drew, for mixing things up a bit & providing us with pure entertainment.
