    I hope this is OK... I've created this thread for questions that don't really warrent a thread. I always have questions that are really basic and don't really have much discussion involved. Thanks guys!

    Has anyone noticed that the song Inagoddadevita by Iron Butterfly is used quite a few times in the series? Anyone know if there was some special meaning with some of the cast or something?

    When Al and Elaine were at their own wedding they had a talk before the ceremony and realized that they loved each other but they weren't in love and called off the wedding remaining friends. But if I'm not mistaken she wasn't on the show after that.

    I've got one-

    Did Tim's friend Harry (the hardware store owner) have a last name? Was it ever stated?

    I don't think they ever gave Harry a last name because even on imdb.com his character name just says "Harry".

    There was an episode where Harry's son was on Tool Time and they called him Dennis Turner so I would assume that Harry's last name was Turner.

    I'm still looking for an answer about the Brad and Samantha thing.... also wondering about all of Jill's friends? (Mostly Karen and Marie) It seems like they always end up disappearing without explination. Anyone know what happened to them or if it was ever mentioned in the show?

    Karen and Marie made many appearences before they disappeared, Joe, Marie's wife, only appeared twice, as well as Morgan. Maureen Binford also made a small three appearences.

    Anyways, I've asked about this for a while, which episode did Tim crash the Tool Time truck into their project house? I've seen it, but I forgot the episode.

    Is that the one where the truck is named blood, sweat and gears? It was a big orange Chevy. Dang it! I can't think of the episode! I'll look into it!

    Yes, it is the one with the truck named "Blood, Sweat, and Gears". My guess for the episode has been "Looks Who's Not Talking".

    A Home Improvement movie would be amazing, but pretty tough to do since Earl Hindman (who played Wilson) has passed away. It would be hard to capture the same spirit of the show without him--or any other of the main characters, for that matter. I would be so excited if they did a movie, though.
