Drew & Jerry
The Gary Grill is the twelfth episode of the second season of Drake & Josh. It aired on October 17, 2004.
Drake and Josh began selling Gary Coleman Grills (a parody of the George Foreman Grills) when they were approached by two sharp-dressed salesmen under the names "Buddy," and "Guy," who offer them the job of selling them as long as the salesmen are given a fraction of their profit.
Not only can these grills cook food in the same way a George Foreman grill would, but the grills are also equipped with the feature of playing digital audio. Selling the grills earns Drake and Josh a lot of money.
However, the FBI arrest Drake and Josh for selling stolen products--the grills, which were actually stolen by "Buddy and Guy" from the manufacturer--even though Drake and Josh try to explain to them that they didn't know they were stolen and that they didn't do anything wrong. While in jail, Drake and Josh call Megan, who helps them manipulate "Buddy and Guy" into telling the truth within audible range of the FBI, and as a result, Drake and Josh are released from jail, free to go by the FBI after they finally discover the truth. Gary Coleman then shows up later, and demands the profit Drake and Josh gained from having sold the grills.
- Gary Coleman guest starred as Gary Coleman, not himself.
- The cold open of this episode breaks the fourth wall, with Drake and Josh noticing the changes in the design done by Megan. Then, when Megan pushes a button on the video effects box and causes Drake and Josh to look messed up and spin around, it heavily resembles a YouTube Poop.
- The stolen Gary Coleman grills were later mentioned in Steered Straight.
- This is Richard Biggs' final television appearance after his death on May 22, 2004 prior to the airing of the episode.
