    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Goof: When Tim and Jill are fighting in the kitchen about Jeff and Carrie, Jill says, "You're being ridiculous!" but if you listen very closely, she incorrectly pronounces it "re-dic-a-luss".

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Jill: I don't want to argue about this! Look, Jeff is just the wrong guy for my sister, okay?
        Tim: What you mean is he is not good enough for your sister.
        Jill: I never said that!
        Tim: But that's what you mean.
        Jill: Don't tell me what I mean!
        Tim: I don't need to tell you what you mean. You know what you mean!
        Jill: I do know what I mean and it's not what you think I mean, and who are you to tell what I mean, anyway?! Half of the time you don't even know what you mean!
        Tim: What's that supposed to mean?!
        Jill: What do you think it means?!
        Tim: I don't know! I'm not even sure what the original topic is!

      • Tim: (to Al) Maybe your maple can kiss my ash.

      • Jeff: You know I used to box a little in college.
        Tim: Yeah, they used to call you the humongous fungus right?

    • NOTES (5)

      • Zachery Ty Bryan is now credited as "With Zachery Ty Bryan" and Richard Karn is now credited as "And Richard Karn."

      • Jonathan Taylor Thomas is no longer credited in the opening credits.

        Note: On the DVD For season eight, if you freeze frame it on Taran Smith's credit and go forward frame by frame you'll see "'lor Thomas" appear for about 2 frames just as the new 'Home Improvement' wood block effect is transitioning to Zachary's credit. Thomas also appears in the family photo at the end of the credits.

      • The order of the cast credited for season eight has changed, now it is:
        Tim Allen (Tim)
        Patricia Richardson (Jill)
        Earl Hindman (Wilson)
        Debbe Dunning (Heidi)
        Taran Noah Smith (Mark)
        Zachery Ty Bryan (Brad)
        Richard Karn (Al)

      • This is the second episode of the entire series that didn't have any of the Taylor kids appear in it, the first one being the second part of "Tool Time After Dark."

      • Zachery Ty Bryan and Taran Smith do not appear in this episode.
