#0614: I Broke the Boss' Car!

Original Air Date: 04.08.2006

   Best Moment

Should Kevin start printing up new resumés now that he got a quarter stuck in his boss’ seatbelt lock, or will Superglue save the day? Nancy learns how to root out brake rotor rot. Ian comes up with a brilliant (?) solution to the clicking valves on his ’97 Mazda pickup truck. The Tappet brothers make Ann Marie’s mom happy by explaining that a car runs three times better at 50 miles an hour than at 80. Dr. Dan gets some self-image counseling. Plus, Tommy defends his daughter’s art history major. Would you like fries with that?
