Tim snaps at Jill when he tries to show her how to unblock a sink.

Quote from Tim

Tim: Are you ready for that test today?
Brad: I guess so.
Tim: What do you mean you guess so?
Brad: It's not fair. I study twice as hard as Randy does, he gets As and I get Cs.
Tim: Certain things he does better. Certain things you do better. You kick his butt in basketball, don't you?
Brad: Yeah.
Tim: To me it's the effort you put into things, not just the grade that counts.
Brad: So it's OK if I flunk?
Tim: No, I don't want you living here when you're 25. "Dad, you wanna shave together or somethin'? Come on."
Brad: Dad...
Tim: I'm kidding. You're gonna do fine on that test.

Quote from Jill

Tim: [answers phone] Hello. Yeah, it's me. What do you mean we don't have any women in the audience today? Two? Well, didn't you put up the address on the screen? Hate mail? We gotta have women in that audience. I don't care how you do it. I need a full audience of women. Thanks, Lisa. [hangs up]
Jill: Problem?
Tim: Huh? Ah, just a minor setback. I didn't get the response from the female viewers I thought I would.
Jill: Maybe cos they're all home playing with their dolls and plastic ovens. Well, I'm going down to the studio. I, for one, am not going to miss this very special Tool Time.
Tim: You don't have 40 friends you can bring with you, do you?

Quote from Tim

Tim: Let's start with you, Greta. Step over to the sink here. Your typical clog. Al, could we have a little breathing room in here, please?
Greta: [giggles] Excuse me.
[After shuffling past Greta, Al sits down on the toilet next to the sink]
Tim: Want me to get you a magazine or something, Al?

Quote from Tim

Tim: This is your typical sink clog with yucky hair and grease. And I want to thank the crew of Tool Time for providing all that hair and grease. Thanks, guys. [men grunt] All right.
Greta: Am I gonna have to touch it?
Tim: Well, yeah, to get it out of there, you're gonna have to yank it out of there.
Al: Would you like me to get you some gloves, Greta?
Greta: Oh, could you, Al?
Al: Right away. [runs off]
Tim: Why don't you get that picnic basket and a bottle of wine while you're back there?

Quote from Jill

Jill: I know how much you like that picture of the hot rod.
Tim: The picture in the magazine with Rita in it?
Jill: Yeah.
Tim: Really?
Jill: So I had it blown up.
Tim: What a sport.
[Jill holds up a large picture of the car with the woman cut out]
Tim: Well, looky there, there's a car in that picture.

Quote from Tim

Tim: Yeah! Pink slips, pal. Nine grand, whole shot. Ah! Missed a shift.
Jill: What are you doing?
Tim: Just checkin' out that frame, honey.
Jill: You are not. You're pretending to drive.
Tim: Well, maybe I was.
Jill: Is there room for two in there?
Tim: Wanna go for a spin?
