Drew's in a Coma was the 15th episode of Season 6 of The Drew Carey Show, also the 142nd overall episode in the series. Originally aired on February 7, 2001 on ABC-TV, This episode, which was directed by Gerry Cohen, was written by Les Firestein.
fter a car accident, Drew is in a coma. His family and friends try to bring him back from the coma while Drew is in Purgatory with beautiful women where he wants to remain.
Drew is left comatose after a car accident. He enjoys a fantasy world where he is surrounded by scantily clad models, dines from pizza trees, and has a makeup-free Mimi as his slave. 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. Steve (who has power of attorney) hopes to avoid this option. The gang tries surrounding Drew with familiar things, but there is no change in his condition. After Drew is removed from the respirator, he takes a test to see if he can get into heaven.
