Let Sleeping Drakes Lie (#6.18)
3 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norm is hired to paint Evan Drake's bedroom. He takes Rebecca with him to check out Evan's place, but he comes back unexpectedly and Rebecca is stuck in the closet. Norm goes through everything to get her out but it keeps on failing. At the end he just comes up with a ridiculous story that he wants to carry a rick man in his pajamas across the lawn and Rebecca escapes.

Wow this is an amazing episode. Absolutely hilarious. Norm trying to save Rebecca was great. Loved how everyone kept on asking him if he left her in the closet and the finale made me laugh so hard I almost cried. Norm, Evan and Rebecca were all absolutely perfect and at their best in this episode.
