Additional Cast


Bobby tries to decide which elective to take at school and hopes to find one that will get him in with the girls. Peer counseling and Hawaiian dance sound good to him, but Hank insists that auto shop is where the girls swarm, so Bobby reluctantly agrees to sign up. Hank is so proud to have his son in auto shop and he thinks that he has finally found something that they can bond over. Now Hank is on the prowl for an old clunker that they can fix up together. Too bad Bobby's enthusiasm about auto shop isn't nearly as great as Hank's. When Bobby goes to his first auto class, the other students look rather intimidating and when he spots a line full of girls in the peer counseling class, he knows where he should really be and secretly joins the counseling class instead. Bobby seems to have a way with the girls who come in and gush their problems to him. So good that he even manages to get a date with one client and create a stalker out of another. Now Bobby needs his own therapist to shake himself of these crazy girls. Hank insists that there is no better therapy than putting a car together, but Bobby must admit that he won't be of much assistance considering he dropped out of the class for peer counseling.
