New neighbors, Joe and Marie Morton, move in next door to the Taylors – but Tim finds Joe to be incredibly obnoxious. Upon his first arrival he dings the grill of Tim’s hot rod, and lingers while he tries to work. To eschew the situation, Tim says he has to go attend to Jill who suffers from depression and alcoholism. Later, Jill meets and really connects with Marie, and sets up a double date. However, at dinner, Joe lets slip the lies that Tim told about Jill, and puts him in hot water.
Meanwhile, Brad enrolls in Home Ec to impress the ladies, and ends up learning the useful skill of sewing instead.
