Randy comes home from Costa Rica for Christmas and is immediately pissed that things at the Taylor house haven’t stayed exactly the same since he left.
He buys his whole family a protected tree in the Costa Rican rainforest, but Tim is more excited about the cool lights that Brad and Mark got him for the roof. It’s an admirable gift, Randy.
But you shouldn’t have been surprised that your dad was more into Christmas lights. He’s been waging a full-out war with Doc Johnson next door for at least seven years. And this year he’s taking on Al. So…
Then Randy speaks some Spanish with Wilson and that’s pretty cool. I can’t figure out if my Spanish is just that rusty or if his accent sucks, but I admire the effort. Randy is so short that he has to stand on the bottom rung of the fence to talk to Wilson lol.
So Randy deals with the fact that things have changed without him and Jill admits that she and Tim should have made more of an effort to spend time with him. I mean he did come all the way from Costa Rica.
Also, Al defeats Tim in the holiday lighting contest. I think Al needed this win.
Very Special Lesson: This show sucked without JTT. Why did they even do a final season without him???

What the hell was he doing in Costa Rica?
I think he and his girlfriend went to save the rainforest in a small village or something. But he’s still in high school so I guess he’s a foreign exchange student? It’s weird. I think this was when JTT decided to quit acting and go to college in real life.
