  • Episode Description
  • Oliver's happy to let a paint company put a fresh coat on the house as an advertising stunt. But to everyone's surprise, the wood is so porous, it sucks up the paint as quickly as it's applied. The wood literally makes a sucking sound as the paint disappears. Haney shows Oliver how to close the house's pores, but that causes it to make an even worse sound. In the kitchen, Lisa is taking three weeks to practice cooking spaghetti and meatballs for Oliver's birthday.moreless
