Uh oh! Mark has the chicken pox, and Tim has never had them, so Jill packs his bags and sends him off to stay with Al for a few days. Tim, however, finds this to be quite a chore, especially considering Al’s overzealousness for planned meals and activities. After one night of watching Al’s home movies, Tim is ready to move into a hotel, but is afraid that he’ll hurt Al’s feelings. This is ultimately moot because on Tool Time, Tim plays a game with guests Mario and Michael Andretti to guess the sounds of revving engines, and pranks Al by including a recording of his snoring. Al expresses his upsettiness to Tim back at home, leading to a brief row, to which Tim apologizes and helps mend by putting in a good word with Al’s neighbor who has a crush on him.
