Don't Count Your Chickies Before They Hatch is the fifth episode from Season 2 and the eighteenth episode of Teacher's Pet overall. Alfred Gimeno served as director, while first-time writers Nicholas Hope and Jessie Jones wrote the episode.
Scott is thrilled at a chance to go the upcoming air show, but this conflicts with his class assignment to watch over chicken eggs, so in the meantime, Leonard videotapes the whole thing for Scott so he can still watch the airshow later on. Eventually, Scott has to leave the house to retrieve a light bulb when the incubator's light bulb dies, but on the way to the light bulb store, Scott is extremely tempted to go to the airshow and shrik his duties.
In the meantime, after complaining that he feels that he has no purpose in life, Mr. Jolly finds purpose by lying on top of the eggs to keep them warm until Scott gets back.
