Al sends Tim a chain letter and Tim is warned that, if he breaks the chain, bad luck will happen to him. He doesn't care and throws out the chain letter. The next day strange things happen: the battery in his car goes dead; someone parks in his spot; he dyes his hands green; and Jill knocks him out. So again, Tim turns to Wilson who can help him with his problem: garlic and wolfbane. Randy is double-dared to jump a ramp with his new bike, and he breaks it. Tim doesn't know how to respond; on one hand, Randy did something wrong; on the other hand, it reminds him of his own childhood.
