On This Episode of Home Improvement…
It’s Big Game day, and all Tim wants to do is watch football with his boys. He forgot, however, that he was supposed to make dinner reservations with Jill. Left to Jill, she searches for a last-minute sitter, and finds one in Sir Larry Houdini, a birthday party magician.
At dinner, Tim conceals a portable radio in his jacket pocket so he can listen to the game at every chance he gets. Goaded on by another male patron, Jill quickly finds Tim out. Meanwhile, the boys have bound Sir Larry in chains and a straightjacket, and have locked him inside of a hope chest.
Instead of a huge fight, Jill acquiesces to Tim’s obsession and lets him listen with the kitchen staff. Later, they come home to find Sir Larry still in need of rescue.
On this episode of Grunt Work…
Truman and Landen explore Tim’s obsession with football, Jill’s desire to spend more time with her husband, and an over-confident magician. And we further ponder whether or not Wilson is, in fact, God – and if God (Wilson) were to transpose himself into a human body, would he be immortal?
