Randall William Taylor (Seasons 1-7)
During the flashback scene with Randy as a colicky baby, we see the first time Wilson ever said, "Hidey-ho," to Tim.
Tim: Oh ho-ho! Lemon meringue! (takes out a fork and goes for the pie)
Jill: (runs in) Don't touch that pie! That's for after dinner!
Tim: I wasn't gonna touch it.
Jill: Well, then, what are you doing with the fork?
Tim: I had a little itch, honey...
Tim: What's in the bag?
Brad: Something's gonna cut time off my doctor's appointment.
Brad: You know how the doctor makes you go pee in the cup?
Tim: That's my favorite part, except the cup is too small. I would go with a salad bowl for me.
Brad: Yeah, well, my problem is that I can't go under pressure.
Tim: So you went in that bag?!?
Brad: Of course not. I put it in a yogurt container.
Randy: I think you just found a flavor that will never catch on...
Randy: (to his parents) This is awesome! Skipping school, going out to breakfast, Mortal Massacre...I can't believe you guys are treating me so good. If I didn't know any better, I'd think I was dying! (long pause, Tim and Jill look upset) That was a joke, guys.
Tim: (about Randy possibly having cancer) So he doesn't know anything about this?
Jill: No. None of the kids do. The whole way home, I kept just telling Randy that nothing was wrong, that he was probably just run-down, needs some vitamins. Meanwhile, I was going out of my mind. I thought I was just going to the doctor for a checkup, the next thing I know, I'm talking to a specialist about lumps. (near tears)
Tim: Hey, hey, hey, come here. Come on. (hugs her)
Jill: This is my worst nightmare!
Jill: We're back.
Tim: What kept you guys?
Randy: Oh, the doctor found boysenberry yogurt in Brad's urine.
Brad: So I had to give him another sample without any fruit in it.
Brad: What's going on here?
Brad: Mom, if you're cooking food like this, something's got to be up. I mean, we usually get burnt toast and mushy bananas.
Tim: It's our anniversary.
Brad: Your anniversary was two months ago.
Tim: (pauses) This is the anniversary ... of the first time we had eggs.
Brad: Well ... happy anniversary!
Tim: I know you're scared, you know. I know how you feel.
Randy: No you don't. I don't want to die, Dad.
Tim: Oh, come on. You are not going to die. Even if you had cancer, which you don't--you do not have that--it's a treatable kind, okay? Hey, come on, come on. We'll beat this thing, no matter what it is, you know? I'm not letting anything happen to you.
Jill: Do you know that Tim has survived over 200 accidents?
Wilson: Really? I would have thought that number was much higher.
Jill (about Dr. Kaufman): She said they're usually benign.
Tim: Oh, God!
Jill: No, benign is the good one.
Tim: Oh, good.
Tim: So it's either a lump or hypo-thighmaster?
(Tim wants to take Randy out for breakfast)
Randy: But, Dad, I'll miss history class.
Tim: How many times have I told you? You can't live in the past!
Randy: It's all Mom's fault. She told Dr. Medwick I've been kind of tired lately.
Tim: Well, you have been. I caught you on the couch the other day asleep at four o'clock.
Randy: Dad, I was watching "Tool Time."
Jill: Oh God! I feel so helpless, just waiting for the phone to ring. It is so frightening to think how one phone call can change your life forever. You know, it's like my family has been living in a big bubble all these years, protecting us from anything bad that could happen. Just one phone call, one split second, and the bubble could burst.
Al: You know, Tim, far be it from me to criticize a colleague, but your performance out there today was a little dull.
Tim: Well, who'd know better then the human yawn.
Tim (walking into the kitchen): Ah! Smells good ... Where am I?
Jill: I'm making a big family breakfast. Eggs, bacon, and silver-dollar pancakes. That's Randy's favorite.
Tim: You're gonna tip him off, honey.
Jill: What do you mean by that?
Tim: If you make Randy something edible, he's gonna know there's something wrong.
Randy: Why does this bad stuff always have to happen to me?
Tim: Bad stuff happens to everybody. Bad stuff happens to me all the time.
Randy: Yeah, but you cause it.
Al: Is it me? Have I let you down in any way?
Tim: Al, you've let me down in every way.
At the end of the episode when they show clips of Randy, the clips go back to before the show began.
This episode was inspired by an idea of Patrica Richardson's.
Jonathan Taylor Thomas once said in an interview that this is his favorite episode.
Before the closing credits there is montage of scenes (featuring Randy), set to Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World."
The lullaby Tim sings to baby Randy is "GTO" by Ronnie and The Daytonas. Tim says that Brad also liked this song as a baby.
The Longest Day is also the title of a 1962 movie about World War II's D-Day.
