Tim's mother mentions that she raised five boys by herself. However, during the course of the show, seven Taylor brothers are mentioned (Tim, Marty, Jeff, John, Rick, Steve, and Danny)
First appearance of Bonnie Bartlett as Tim's mother, Lucille Taylor.
Outtake: Tim tries to say, "Emotional, shemotional," but he stumbles over the words, then he laughs and jumps up and down.
Al: The only conversation we ever have is when I say something real and you tell me to shut up.
Tim: Shut up!
Tim: I don't like talking about my feelings.
Jill: You do it with me all the time.
Tim: 'Cause you make me!
Lucille: Every time Tim got in trouble in high school, Mr. Leonard took the time to make a personal call to me.
Mr. Leonard: Well, I had to call you. I knew Tim wasn't giving you those notes I sent home.
Lucille: What notes?
Tim: I, uh, I was going to give them to you tomorrow.
Tim (about Lucille's house): How could it be drafty? I did the weather-stripping myself.
Jill: Enough said.
Jill: When's your mother supposed to be here?
Tim: Any minute. I can hardly wait to see the old hunk of junk again.
Jill: Your mother?
Tim: No, the car. Last time I saw her, her rear end was sagging and she had no pickup.
Jill: The car.
Tim: My mother.
Mr. Leonard: Mrs. Taylor!
Lucille: Mr. Leonard! Oh God, what did Tim do now?
Lucille: I try to have a real conversation with you, and all you keep asking is, "How's the Buick?"
Tim: We talk about other stuff. Are you having a problem with the Buick?
(In Tim's garage)
Marty: Mr. Leonard, I didn't know you were in town.
Mr. Leonard: I'm visiting my daughter.
Marty: Then what are you doing here?
Mr. Leonard: I hate my son-in-law.
This is the first time we meet Tim's mother.
