After a taping of Tool Time, the staff begin setting up the "Cooking with Irma" set, and Al and Tim talk with Irma. She tells them that she can't host next week's shows because her daughter has had a baby. She wants Al to host the shows with Tim as his assistant. They agree and, when they do the show, Tim tries to crack jokes like on Tool Time, but the female audience only laugh at Al's jokes. Tim wants to quit but Jill makes him change his mind. Randy has been staring at a girl named Beth at the class photo, and wants to meets her so Brad sets up a meeting at home. Randy tries to be cool, but he only says dumb things. Luckily Wilson is there to help out.
