Storyline

Frasier and Niles realize their helplessness when Frasier's car stalls, so they enroll in an auto repair night class. They quickly fall behind, and understand what it's like to be remedial students. They then take the part too far and degenerate into class clowns and become disruptive.

What's a Camshaft?
24 October 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Frasier and Niles are embarrassed on a date when they have car trouble. So they decide to take a beginning automotive class. They are hopeless. They don't listen and they talk during instruction. I was a middle school teacher for 43 years and these guys would have fit right in with my worst classes.
