Episode #84 - Season 4, Episode 17
First Aired: February 6, 1986
Elyse and Alex break down in the car, and it is decided that everyone needs to have some basic knowledge of car care. They take an auto mechanics course at the local community college, and Alex (as usual) turns it into a battle of the sexes. Elyse does marvelously in the class and tries to help Alex without him knowing it. Unfortunately, in trying to get his project done, he ruins Elyse's (and doesn't tell her).
- Steven is sick (but won't admit it), and Skippy thinks he sounds like Lauren Bacall (and when Steven disagrees, he says Steven looks like Lauren Bacall).
- Robert Costanzo appears in this and several other episodes.
