It is Jill and Tim's wedding anniversary and they are talking about giving each other gifts. Jill has bought a steering wheel for the hot rod but only wants Tim to get her a sweater she has picked out. But Tim wants to do more, so he takes them both to ballroom dancing lessons. Because he isn't good at dancing and Jill is dancing with another guy, Tim just cracks jokes and wants to impress the teacher. When he dances with the teacher, he spins her around and she flies out of the room and hurts herself. On Tool Time, Tim is given a "Certificate of Appreciation" for promoting safety at home and on the job. Al isn't happy about this because his name isn't on the paper.
