This week, Tim is finally ready to drop the engine into the chasey of his hot rod, and invites a few friends over to help him. Al finds out, and is a little disappointed he wasn’t invited because his girlfriend, Greta Post, has just dumped him. Tim extends the invitation, and their friendship grows a millimeter larger.
At home, Karen is visiting, also reeling from a recent breakup and ready to Just Say No to men. Jill sees this as an opportunity to introduce Karen to Tim’s hunky friend Dave – much to the chagrin of Tim, who doesn’t want to be disturbed while working on the hot rod. However, it all goes off the rails as all of Tim’s friends bring their wives, and Karen and Dave hit it off.
Meanwhile, the kids are engaged in some sort of domestic dispute with some neighborhood boys.
