When Jill opens her own checking account for the money she’s made at her new job, Tim doesn’t take it well, and soon the two of them are locked in an argument over what in their life belongs to whom. When Tim lets slip that he believes Jill’s car, not to mention the whole house they live in, belongs to him simply because he paid for them, Jill is furious at him for marginalizing her and her role in their relationship. Wilson helps Tim understand that his belief that he owns everything in the house is actually rooted in a deep-seated desire to own Jill as well, and Tim makes amends by calculating how much money he owes Jill for twelve years of marriage and motherhood.
