On Tool Time, Tim gets the horrible news that his boss, Mr. Binford, has died of a heart attack. Al knows that Tim felt Mr. Binford was like a father to him and so Al thinks that Tim should mourn over Mr. Binford. Tim doesn't feel like it because he has taught the boys that guys don't cry. But Jill assures him that there is nothing wrong with crying. Wilson thinks that crying is just one way of mourning, so Tim has to find his own way to say goodbye to John Binford. So Tim gives him a Tool Time fashion salute on the show.
