Rites and Wrongs of Passage

On This Episode of Home Improvement…

Tim bought tickets for him and the boys to see a good old-fashioned monster truck show — but when a group of older boys at school begin encouraging Brad to pull pranks and run afoul of the police, Tim and Jill ground him and Tim forbids him to go see the monster trucks. In response, Brad gets even more mouthy and rebellious. Wilson explains to Tim that Brad is acting out because he’s caught between adolescence and manhood, a situation tribal societies avoided by inducting boys with the rites of manhood. In response, Tim lets Brad use a blowtorch while working on their hot rod and anoints him with motor oil to celebrate his transformation into the ‘man-child.’

Meanwhile, Tim’s mouth gets him in trouble when a local Scotsman challenges him to participate in the Kaber Toss at the local Highland games – an ancient Scottish tradition in which men pick up a giant log and throw it as far as they can. When a kilt-clad Tim attempts this at the games, he instead chucks the log clear through the window of Al’s lovingly restored ’84 Mercury Marquis station wagon.

On This Episode of Grunt Work…

Truman and Landen experience slight audio issues; begin to explore the outer reaches of the Jerryverse, the life and work of the inept Tool Time producer; and debate whether or not the two boys who coerce Brad’s bad deeds are indeed Bob and Stinky, and whether or not Stinky is, in fact, George W. Bush.
