    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • This episode has been edited in syndication. Instead of its regular theme song at the beginning like all the season 1 episodes, this episode had the Tool Time segment at the beginning, and then the theme song right after like episodes in seasons 2+. The outtake with Tim and the sander has also been cut and the credits are shown during the scene when the Taylors check out the new television channels.

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Tim (hanging upside down from the roof): Could you cut me down, please?
        Jill: No, I like you like this.

      • Tim: However much I'm not jealous, I'm twice as much not insecure.
        Wilson: Well, you should feel secure, Tim. You've got what every man dreams of.
        Tim: A satellite dish!
        Wilson: No, Tim. Three strapping boys, a nice home, and a loving wife.

      • Rondall: Jill, you're playing hard to get.
        Jill: No, I am playing no get. I am a no get woman. I am a happily married, no get woman. I have a wonderful husband . . .
        (Tim falls off the roof)

      • Rondall: There's obviously something happening between us. I mean, you feel it, I feel it, it's chemistry.
        Jill: No, I flunked chemistry.

      • Tim: You had coffee with Rondall? You didn't tell me about this coffee.
        Jill: Sorry. It was cream, two sugars.

      • Tim: Everybody's got a TV.
        Wilson: Not me. I just use my imagination and watch the pictures inside my head.
        Tim: I guess that cuts down on re-runs then, doesn't it?
        Wilson: Not really, Tim, there's always deja vu.

      • Jill: 200 stations?
        Tim: Oh, yeah.
        Jill: Great, so now it'll take you 45 minutes to find out there's nothing on you want to watch.

      • Jill: Tim, what do you actually know about installing a satellite dish?
        Tim: It's simple. Mount it, point it straight up. Any man could do that.
        Jill: Yeah, but it has to stay up longer than ten seconds.

      • Tim: I was kinda hoping you could stop by Saturday and maybe have lunch and help me put it up.
        Al: Well, I was kinda hoping to have the weekend alone, kinda a private man-time.
        Lisa: Al! (runs up to them) Oh, good, Al.
        Al: Yeah?
        Lisa: What time did you say you wanted to come over tomorrow to help me put up my bookshelves?
        Al: How about nine o'clock?
        Lisa: That's perfect. I'll see you then. Bye Tim. (walks away)
        Tim: See ya, Lise. (to Al) Kind of that private man-time, huh?
        Al: Well, she's a co-worker, Tim. I think of her as a man.
        Tim: That's why you're still single, Al.
