Al wants to buy an ice fishing shanty and wants Tim to go there fishing with him. At first Tim won't, but when he finds out that Jill has invited Marie and Ilene over to watch musicals, talk about men, and remove unnecessary body hair, he accepts. When they arrive, Tim has brought a TV and watches football when Al wants to fish and talk. When they don't catch anything, Tim suggests they make the hole bigger. When he tries to do that, he falls through the ice and loses the car keys and has to call Wilson to bring a spare set. Then Tim "improves" the heater so the shanty burns down.
