Jill says no to Tim's desire to buy into Harry's hardware store, so Al buys into it instead and is less than a "silent partner." Tim is also annoyed when Al starts advertising "Harry's Hardware" on Tool Time. Tim saves Al's relationship with Ilene as Al is spending too much time in the hardware store. Mark wins a Hallowe'en competition when he goes dressed as Al.
