During his weekly "Tool Time" appearance, Tim (Tim Allen) informs the studio audience that "his friend's wife" was caught driving her car with the oil light on. This prompts the sympathetic audience members to share their own stories of female incompetence, whereupon an emboldened Tim confesses that "his friend's wife" was actually his own spouse, Jill (Patricia Richardson).
