* In the episode where they go to couples' counselling, Tim complains about Jill booking a weekend away at a B&B with no TV on Indy weekend and Jill claims it was the only weekend they had an opening. The Indianapolis 500 is held on Memorial Day weekend; what country bed and breakfast isn't booked weeks in advance on Memorial Day weekend?

** Even educated parents can lapse into what makes intuitive sense without questioning it logically, but the logic in the difference in punishments for Brad and Randy are still fair. Rules exist to prevent certain actions from inviting certain results; Randy broke a rule, but didn't cause any of the results that rule is intended to prevent by behaving responsibly and then immediately confessed to what he did so he could accept the consequences. Brad broke the rule, caused exactly the results the rule was meant to prevent, and then made it worse by trying to avoid the consequences. In other words: Randy knew what he was doing and handled it maturely, both in estimation of his skills and understanding the consequences of his actions, while Brad handled it childishly and irresponsibly and caused huge problems for others in doing so. Giving Randy the same punishment for a much lesser offense wouldn't have been fair.
** It's also established that Jill presenting herself as a fully-fledged psychologist when she's really a student in the middle of an education (who hasn't completed her degree or gotten any kind of license) and handling problems as if she were is a very bad and potentially dangerous idea.

* What I don't get is why does Tim get all the blame in "A House Divided". It was Benny's fault for not telling the Tool Time crew that there were ''two'' gas leaks, and not making sure ''all'' the electronics were unplugged. Tim didn't know these things so he shouldn't have been held responsible.

** The episode that features The Beach Boys, Wilson's face appears for a brief second, because one of the Beach Boys moved out of the way unintentionally in one shot.

*** Something to ponder. The writers may have been trying to go for a "college is more important" moral, but that all falls apart when you remember that Jonathan Taylor Thomas left the series to finish college, and he got criticized for it.

** There's probably now an element of SocietyMarchesOn to this as well, the notion that going to college right after high school was the best option when possible was VERY firmly entrenched in the '90s, it's only since the Great Recession that people have started to rethink it.

* Tim never remembers to duck when he goes up or down the basement stairs, so he bangs his head on the same pipe every time. Why doesn't he just wrap the pipe in foam rubber or another material that would cushion the blow?

** Don't forget the episode where Tim had to fix Al's board games. Not only is Tim able to instantly identify the problem, he fixes the wiring problem, recruits family and friends to the cause, and he's able to train someone like Jill how to do it without supervision.
