Randy is going to perform a ventiloquist act at the talent show at school but is nervous because his lips move and he hasn't got a decent dummy. Tim has a solution to both of his problems; he carves a dummy out of wood that looks like himself and Wilson paints it. All Randy has to do is grunt and move the dummy's mouth. Jill takes a compatibility test for herself and Tim and finds they don't match. Jill thinks it is because she does all the compromising but Tim disagrees and he and the guys at work make another test.
