* BrokenAesop: The UnwantedGlassesPlot with Mark is about how he doesn't want to look like a dork and Jill says it'll be okay even if he has glasses. Pretty quickly he changed to contact lenses, so those who don't want glasses for fear of looking nerdy got very little out of it before the character is not a dork again. There's also the issue that Mark gets picked on and called a dork all the time anyway, glasses or no glasses, so even if he'd kept them, it wouldn't really change anything.

** The final episode's CurtainCall was this for several members of the cast. Zachary Ty Bryan and Patricia Richardson were openly weeping, while Tim Allen was clearly holding his back.

* CriticProof: The show was never a big darling of the critics (having to compete with edgier material with the likes of ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'', ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' and ''Series/{{Friends}}''), the cast got nominated a few times but only Tim Allen won a Golden Globe. But it was extremely popular with the People's Choice Awards, it was a top ten show (#1 a few years) for its entire run.

** Of the kids, Randy was the most popular for very smart and snarky, able to play off his dad better than the others. Supplementing this was Jonathan Taylor Thomas being a great actor and rising to TeenIdol stardom, the producers took advantage of this by giving him some of the meatier story arcs.

* FranchiseZombie: The network wanted to keep the show going but everyone involved, including Patricia Richardson and Tim Allen, knew that they had reached their peak at 7 seasons. The last season is generally considered the point when the show was running out of steam.

** When Tim's brother gets a job offer in Detroit, he mentions how he'd love to take it but he's not sure he'd be able to afford a local house. This line looks very different to modern audiences, particularly those who are aware that Detroit was one of the hardest-hit cities by the property value crash of Great Recession, to the point where some people ended up dumping their homes for around $5000 just so they would get ''anything'' for them, and they still haven't really recovered!
