  • Let's close the curtains (or door) for Tim "The Tool-Man" Taylor! This episode was a good ending to the show.

    In this finale, Al and Tim have their last episode of Tool Time. Al gets married. Tim is offered to come back to tool time, but he does not want Jill to not take up her great offer for a job. At the end of the episode the Taylors seemingly leave, or is it just mere imagination?



    A good episode, not one of my favorites of the series but still well done. The only thing I don't really like is them not saying whether or not they left. Guess that was the point. Overall, an A+ is what I give theemoreless

    this is the seris finale of such a classic show. the taylors are still debating whether or not to move to indiana, al finally gets married to trudy, tim is getting bugged by the new producer of 'tool time' to stay for more money but he doesnt tell jill. she only finds out when tims boss calls round with a cheese basket to try and bribe them. tim and wilson take down the legendary fence to make room for al's wedding- it definatly is the end of an era! the end is left as a cliff hanger- did they move or not??? i guess we'll never know...moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • According to Tim Allen, the show's ratings were still good enough for it to be renewed for a ninth season, but financial squabbles were one of the biggest reasons that it was canceled. In particular, Patricia Richardson wanted her paycheck to match Allen's, who was earning twice as much as her. In the end, Allen said that as much as he loved the show, he didn't want to continue with it if it was "just going to be about the money."

    • When Jonathan Taylor Thomas (Randy Taylor) was initially approached to return for the very last episode, he said he would do it, but he later backed out. "I was just really confused...I never understood what happened," Patricia Richardson (Jill Taylor) has said. The creator of Home Improvement says that he doesn't blame Thomas, but he blames his "people," who allegedly brainwashed Thomas and were responsible for him eventually saying no to the finale.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Tim: Why haven't we thought about taking this fence down before?
      Wilson: I guess we just didn't want to reveal too much of ourselves!

      Tim to Wilson: But instead we went ahead and revealed everything anyway!

  • NOTES (10)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Tim says he didn't make the wedding arch gold because then he would have to serve 2 billion Borlands.

      This is an allusion to McDonalds, whose logo is golden arches. For years the signs at the restaraunts kept track of how many were served. Most of them now read, "Over 99 Billion Served" or simply "Billions and Billions Served".
