The boys remind Tim that it's Jill's birthday. Jill complains that he always gives her something she has to plug in. This time she wants him to tune into her and give her something from his heart. When he sees her exercise, he wants to give her a lifetime membership for a health care club. But on her birthday, she says she won't exercise again so Tim has to come up with a new gift for her. Brad and Randy spent all their money on a baseball card and so need to get the money to buy Jill's gift. So they make Mark pay a little brother tax.
