Nana bought some bonds for the kids a long time ago, and now the boys can have the money. They agree on going to the baseball store and investing the money in baseball cards. When Tim sees a 140-dollar autographed Indy-car with remote control, he would really like to have it but he knows that the boys can't handle sharing one thing. They buy the car anyway, and when they boys can't resist seeing it drive, they take it into the garden and it gets damaged. They try to repair it but Jill notices the damage and gets revenge big time. Tim and Al are doing a salute to high steel and while visiting the building the K&B Construction guys are working on, Tim falls down into a toilet.
