  • Not my favorite story line, but it was alright.

    This episode wasn't my favorite, but it had it's good points. I thought this episode was kind of simple, and almost like a filler episode. The parts with the boys, and Tim, was pretty funny. I enjoyed the part with the alien, but at the Tool Time show parts, I thought it was somewhat slow.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Randy: We're not your brothers.
      Mark: Yes you are.
      Randy: I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. We're aliens from outer space.
      Mark:You're a big fat liar, Randy!
      Randy: My name's not Randy. It's Zelnot!
      Brad: And I'm Zorton.
      Mark: No you're not. You're Brad and Randy.
      Randy: No. Brad and Randy are gone. We sucked the blood out of their brains and took over their bodies. We have many powers. We can read minds.
      Mark: No you can't.
      Randy: I'll prove it. Zorton?
      Brad: Talk to me, Zelnot.
      Randy: I'm thinking of a number between one and ten. What is it?
      Brad: Four.
      Randy: That's right.
      Mark: How did you do that?!

    • Tim: Boys, sit down there. Your mom has something she wants to say to you.
      Jill: I believe we have something that we both want to say to them.
      Tim: Yeah. Right. Whatever your mom is saying, I'm saying it. It's just that she's the one saying it, which doesn't mean that I'm not saying what she's saying. Say what I'm saying.

    • Jill: Mark, what are you doing?
      Mark: Nothing.
      Tim: Why are you walking backwards? You could hurt yourself doing that.
      Mark: Better than getting all my blood sucked out.
      Tim: You've got a good point there.
      Jill: Have you been talking to your brothers? What have they been telling you now?
      Mark: They think you're all from outer space.
      Jill: Honey, you know that's not true!
      Tim: Jill, sometimes, when you wake up really early in the morning... (she gives him a look)
      Mark: They said you have lips in the back of your head.
      Tim: Jill, sometimes you wake up early...

    • Mark: Mom says you're supposed to be nice.
      Randy: Do you see Mom anywhere in this backyard? Now get lost.

    • Tim: Nice beard.
      Pete: Thanks, Tim. I grew it because of Al. He's my hero.
      Tim (after a long pause): Mine too.

    • (Tim tries to remember the first song he danced to with Jill)
      Tim: "Touch Me In The Morning." Diana Ross.
      Jill: I'll touch you in the afternoon if you tell me the name of the song.

    • Tim: I'm gonna make some of that four-star, happy trails, rootin'-tootin' chili of mine.
      Jill: I don't know about the rootin', but there'll be plenty of tootin'.
      Tim: You should consider yourself lucky I'm not making my rip-roarin' chili.

    • Tim: I'm looking for something to put that chili in.
      Jill: How about a trash bag?

    • Jill: What are we going to do about Brad and Randy? They keep tormenting Mark.
      Tim: That's why we had Mark, so they'd leave us alone.

    • Mark: Mom, look what I colored for you!
      Jill: Awww! Honey, that's beautiful.
      Tim: Wow, that's some good-looking airplane.
      Mark: It's not an airplane. It's Mom.
      Tim: Oh. I thought those were propellers.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Jill: Okay smart guy, who sang "Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida"?
      Tim: I just was. (singing) "Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida ...
      Jill: Who sang "Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida" so that people wanted to hear it?

      The answer is actually Iron Butterfly. Tim and Jill will later play this song during their fake alien landing to scare Brad and Randy.
