** BrickJoke: often happens with the tools and gags introduced on [[ShowWithinAShow ToolTime]], where you'd see the tool, then see Tim using it later. Another example: in the Season 3 Christmas episode, Tim says that a mini-propane lighter would be a perfect stocking stuffer for a tool guy. Much later, at church when they hand around the candles, Tim lights his lighter instead.

* ContinuityNod: To demonstrate [[TimTaylorTechnology a power washer he souped up]], Tim writes "Al's a gal" into a wall on the outside of the studio building. However, he is unable to remove the writing from the wall, instead only smearing it slightly. It's there every time they shoot outside at that location from then on.

** The pilot resurfaces in a clip show of ''Tool Time'' episodes that Tim is watching while dealing with the consequences of eating Polish food. This time it plays all the way through as the camera pans away from the television screen; the audience doesn't see or hear the impact of the hammer, but we do hear Al's reaction including his questioning how Tim got a television show in the first place.



* HolidayVolunteering: Episode "The Wood, the Bad and the Hungry" has Randy volunteers at a soup kitchen for Thanksgiving. While leaving one of the regulars is upset about spending the day at a shelter so Jill invites him back for a meal at theirs.

** They tried to [[HandWave fix the inconsistent number of Tim's siblings]] later in the series, for an episode where Brad and Randy are having a spat, and Tim tries to explain to them that this could potentially cause a bad rift between the two, then mentions that several of his siblings had bad fights and arguments in the past resulting in them not speaking, or really acknowledging each other.

** Al. Originally, another character (Glen) was to be Tim's assistant, but actor Main/StephenTobolowsky was busy with another project. To give him time to finish, producers hired Richard Karn for the pilot. When the series was picked up, Karn stayed on as a recurring guest star as Tobolowsky was still busy elsewhere. Soon enough, all parties agreed that between Tobolowsky's busy workload and Karn and Tim Allen's playing off each other so well, it was best to simply retain Al. Karn was added to the main cast by Season 2.

* BigDamnHeroes: In one episode Al invests his entire life savings into a Tool Time board game that is manufactured with bad wiring. Since Al can't afford to have the games repaired or completely redone, it appears that he's going to lose everything. Tim is able to figure how the fastest way to fix the game, and recruits Jill, Wilson, Heidi, Ilene and Al's brother Cal to pitch in and stay up all night in Al's apartment fixing each and every single the game.

* LonelyBachelorPad: One episode has Tim design the ultimate male bathroom. The toilet unfolds into a recliner, there's a fridge and a large TV for sporting events... All good for a single person to live in, of course, but there's no way two people could live in it.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: For Tim, Bob Vila, which is the root cause for Tim to treat the latter as an UnknownRival. Not only is Vila a more capable handyman than Tim (probably because Vila doesn't produce TimTaylorTechnology), Vila is also a much more successful show host.

** Tool Girl Heidi, at first solely used to introduce Tim and Al and provide {{Fanservice}} (the reason Pam Anderson, who played original Tool Girl Lisa, left the show for a full-time gig on ''{{Baywatch}}''), eventually got a bigger role on Tool Time and a few storylines herself (about her pregnancy and her husband cheating on her, for example), as well as a PromotionToOpeningTitles in season 7.
