‘Last Man Standing': Vanessa’s Pissed at Mike for Luring Jen Away From Geology and Toward Marketing (Exclusive Video)

Hey, she makes it sound like he was ”waiting out front in a van full of candy and crack“

It’s *on* between Mike (Tim Allen) and Vanessa (Nancy Travis) on Thursday’s episode of “Last Man Standing,” as the husband and wife begin a debate over what’s best for their live-in foreign exchange student, Jen: a career in geology or marketing.

In a clip from tonight’s episode, which is exclusive to TheWrap, Vanessa — obviously Team Geology, given her own background — blames Mike and his advertising for Outdoor Man for Jen’s (played by Krista Marie Yu) newfound interest in marketing.

“You lured that child with your slick vlogs and your clever slogans: Ooh, Mike Baxter here for Outdoors Man,” Vanessa says, mocking her husband.

“Lured? You make it sound like I was waiting out front in a van full of candy and crack,” Mike says.

The two then go back and forth fighting over what profession is best for Jen, with Mike touting the marketing field and Vanessa reminding him Jen’s father sent her to America to become a scientist.

Well, Mike won’t give up and neither will Vanessa.

“Well you know what Mike, I can get through to Jen and you are not the only one with a van full of crack!” she says, storming off.

OK, just to be clear — Mike would like the government, who he thinks is totally listening to them via the “devices” in their home, to know they do *not* have a van full of crack.

Here’s the official description for tonight’s episode, titled “Girls Rock”: Mike and Vanessa each try to influence Jen’s career path, while Kristin uses her pregnancy to her advantage with Outdoor Man customers.

“Last Man Standing” airs Thursdays at 8/7c on Fox.
