Tim Quote #201
Tim: Now, remember what I told you. Plant your elbow inside your knee, like this, all right. And don't just lift your arm. Pull the weight to your shoulder. Good, good. Now, exhale on exertion. Try grunting. It helps. [Tim and Brad grunt] Good guy, Brad. You're gonna be real strong if you keep this up.
Brad: I'm gonna be the strongest one on the football team.
Tim: I can see it now. "Bradley Taylor, the muscular son of Tim Taylor, is carrying the ball. He's got 60 people dragging behind him. 30, the 20, the ten. Oh, he fell because his muscles are just too big."
Quote from Wilson
Wilson: Well, it sounds like he's spending all his time looking backwards and you're spending yours looking forward.
Tim: That's it. I can't keep up with this guy. The thought of crushing a beer can on my head makes my butt quiver.
Wilson: Well, that's why I gave it up, Tim.
Tim: I don't know what to do about him.
Wilson: Well, it sounds to me like you're having a hard time saying goodbye.
Tim: Why should I say goodbye? He's been one of my best friends for 15 years.
Wilson: Well, has he, Tim? Or was he your best friend 15 years ago? You see, Tim, I believe it was St. Paul who said: "When I was a child I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But when I became a man, I put away childish things."
Quote from Tim
Tim: And that's how you beat Old Man Winter, by installing a properly clad aluminum storm window inside your wood-frame window. Now, no less effective, and sometimes less costly is installing plastic sheeting on the inside of your window. Right, Al?
Al: That's right, Tim. We've taken a three-millimeter piece of plastic sheeting, cut it two inches larger than our interior frame.
Tim: Right, Al. And we've tucked it over the top, taped it. And now are ready to shrink it using an electric hair dryer. Lisa?
Lisa: Here you go, Tim.
Tim: Thanks. We do this to get a wrinkle-free, clear covering over our windows. Now, this works best, but if you don't happen to have a hair dryer, you can always get your mother-in-law over to the house and have her yap at the window for a while. [shrill voice] "You know, you should have married Dr. Conrad. He's a brain surgeon. No, you end up with this loser on the tool show. [hair dryer noise]" Ah! I've just... You don't want... You don't want... You don't want to irritate any mother-in-laws, do you, Al?
Al: You already have, Tim.
Tim: That's it from me. Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor, reminding you to get those storm windows and doors in early, 'cause you never know when that storm's gonna come rolling through. See you next time.
Quote from At Sea
Tim: I wanna talk about you and Angela.
Brad: Dad, there's nothing to talk about.
Tim: I want to talk about sex for a minute.
Brad: Dad, I don't want...
Tim: I want you to listen to me, please. Listen up. Sex is, um... It's like a car. The best idea is to keep the car in the garage for a long, long, long time. And then, somewhere in the future, the distant future, when that garage door opens... you gotta think, "car cover".
Quote from Her Cheatin' Mind
Chris: So the only character you liked was the handyman?
Tim: No. I think the hero of this fine novel would have to be the husband. [all laugh]
Chris: He was the quintessential dullard.
Tim: Well, dullard or mallard, I don't care. She was married and only her husband should be allowed near Madame's ovaries.
