On "Tool Time": Tim has a tip on how to avoid hitting oneself on a finger while holding a nail. Tim also has received a fan letter which he decides to read out aloud to the audience. The writer of the letter and his friends are construction workers who have invented a way of "cooking with power and steel". Tim invites them to demonstrate this on the show. At home: Brad and Randy are ashamed of being seen in public with their "geek brother". Jill thinks she and Tim should tell Brad and Randy not to torment their little brother, but Tim has another idea: they have to "out-torment" Brad and Randy. They try Jill's idea, but when that seems to have no effect, Tim gets a chance to try his idea... Tim then finds some old 8-track tapes in the basement, and he and Jill start quizzing each other about the music of the 1960s and 1970s. Written by

Per the title, the term "flying saucers" was applied to objects observed in the sky that were thought to be extraterrestrial in nature and were described as two saucers (one inverted) beginning in 1947. Today they are referred to as U.F.O's or unidentified flying objects. See more
