Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble is the ninth episode of the first season of Home Improvement. It originally aired on ABC in the United States on November 19, 1991.


Tim decides to put in another sink in the bathroom so his shaving junk won't be in Jill's way, but the project takes longer than he expects.


Tim is in the bathroom with the boys discussing women and their stuff, i.e. makeup. Jill comes in and starts an argument. Tim convinces Jill to let him install two sinks in the bathroom so each person has a separate one. He films Tool Time in his house, and of course doesn't get satisfied just with two new sinks, but he has to re-model the whole bathroom.

While filming Tool Time certain problems occur such as too small a staircase for a tub, a busted water pipe, a flooded front yard, and no gas. Jill leaves Tim, and takes the boys to a hotel, but she eventually comes home to Tim, because she was depressed. They then go up stairs, and Jill can not believe her eyes. The bathroom has everything she could want, and both Tim and Jill are very happy.
