Season two of Home Improvement begins as Jill (Patricia Richardson) prepares a surprise romantic dinner for husband Tim (Tim Allen). Hoping to tip Tim off to her amorous intentions without making an overt statement, Jill calls up her hubby at Big Mike's. The phone call is pleasant enough but fails to get the proper results. Arriving home two hours late (he'd been tied up with a crucial peanut-rolling contest), Tim is confronted by a furious Jill, who complains that he is completely incapable of picking up her "signals." A few flippant comments later, Jill delivers a powerful signal that Tim could not possibly miss -- or could he?
