Jill has planned a romantic surprise dinner for Tim, who is at Big Mike's with Al and the guys from K&B Construction.

He phones home and she flirts with him, and he doesn't notice and comes home two hours late. Jill is upset and accuses him of not picking up all the signals she sends. Tim thinks that signals should be clear and dresses up as Fred the phone repairman so he can fix the problem. Meanwhile, Brad is wondering whether Jennifer jabbing him is a sign that she wants to kiss him.
