Mark has chicken pox so Tim can't stay at home as he's never had them. When Al plays a little trick on Tim on Tool Time, he wants to make it up to Tim by letting him stay at his apartment. Tim doesn't want to but can't bring himself to tell Al. So he ends up at Al's where he has to listen to square dance music and watch home videos of Al's childhood. He also meets Cynthia, Al's neighbor, who wants to meet Al but he keeps rejecting her. Tim tells her what Al really wants: no rush and respect for her. The stars Michael and Mario Andretti are on Tool Time where they guess engine sounds.
