Henry Winkler guest stars as Mr. Newsome, the easygoing new owner of Winfred-Louder. Immediately connecting with Drew (Drew Carey), Mr. Newsome confides that he is planning to oust Mr. Wick as personnel manager--and put Drew in his place. He intends to make this announcement official at a board meeting, right after attending Drew's Halloween haunted-house party. Alas, Newsome takes one look at the phony bat flying through the house and drops dead of a heart attack--leaving Drew to utilize his newfound skills as a ventriloquist to (hopefully) carry the day at the board meeting! Meanwhile, Lewis (Ryan Stiles) is hideously deformed (or to be precise, more hideously deformed than usual) by a demented dentist.
