Birthplace: Denver, Colorado, USA

Smarter than his grunting comedic persona suggested, Tim Allen turned his stand-up into a successful Hollywood career. Early setbacks like the death of his father and a stint in prison gave Allen the drive to pursue comedy, and his affectionate dissection of the differences between the genders -- focusing especially on the confusions of modern masculinity -- spring-boarded him to stand-up stardom, leading to the massive hit sitcom, "Home Improvement" (ABC, 1991-99). The show won him buckets of awards and fans around the world for his portrayal of lovable lunkhead Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor. Notching a No. 1 book Don't Stand Too Close to a Naked Man, a TV show and a hit movie at the same time in a rare entertainment trifecta, and Allen went on to rule the box office with two trilogies: "The Santa Clause" (1994, 2002, 2006) and "Toy Story" (1995, 1999, 2010). Fans followed him to other projects, too; Allen toplined moneymakers like "Galaxy Quest" (1999), "Christmas with the Kranks" (2004) and "Wild Hogs" (2007), and returned to television with a second hit show, "Last Man Standing" (ABC 2011-17). Even as his star momentum slowed, the goodwill Allen built up with his early, supernova-level success seemed to assure the comedian as long a career as he chose.

Buzz Lightyear says: Hang on Cowboy!, Woody are you all right?

Woody says: Yeah Buzz I'm fine, Here's your list of things to do while I'm gone: batteries need to be changed. Toys at the bottom of the chest need to be rotated. Oh, and make sure everyone attends Mr. Spell's seminar on what to do if you or part of you is swallowed. Okay? Okay, good, okay.

Buzz Lightyear says: Woody you haven't found you're hat yet have you?

Woody says: No! and Andy's leaving for Cowboy Camp any minute and I can't find it anywhere!

Buzz Lightyear says: Don't worry, Woody. In just a few hours you'll be sitting around a campfire with Andy making delicious hot Schmoes.

Woody says: They're called 'S'mores', Buzz.

Buzz Lightyear says: Yes, yes. Of course, has anyone found Woody's Hat yet?

Woody says: Buzz, you're flying!

Buzz Lightyear says: This isn't flying, this is falling with style.

Woody says: Buzz, you're alive! This is great, we can go home and you can explain to the others that this is just a big misunderstanding. Huh? Right, buddy?

Buzz Lightyear says: I would like to inform you that we don't have violence on my planet.

Woody says: Oh, that's good.

Buzz Lightyear says: But we're not on my planet, are we?

Woody says: No.

Buzz Lightyear says: (lunges at Woody, they fall over and fight.)

Buzz Lightyear says: [lunges at Woody, they fall over and fight]

Woody says: He's not a Space Ranger! He doesn't fight evil or shoot lasers or fly!

Buzz Lightyear says: Excuse me. (Opens wings and everyone is in awe)

Buzz Lightyear says: Excuse me. [opens wings and everyone is in awe]

Hamm says: Impressive wingspan. Very good.

Jason Nesmith says: Never give-up, never surrender.

Buzz Lightyear says: Excuse me, I think the word you're searching for is "Space Ranger".

Buzz Lightyear says: Excuse me, I think the word you're searching for is 'Space Ranger'.

TV Announcer says: The word I'm searching for I can't say because there's preschool toys present.

Buzz Lightyear says: I've set my laser from stun to kill.

Woody says: Oh, great. If anyone attacks we can blink em' to death.

Jason Nesmith says: Am I too late for Alexander's panic attack?

Jason Nesmith says: Okey dokey, Okey dokey. Lets fire blue particle cannons full, red particle cannons full, gannet magnets fire them left and right, and let 'em run all chutes. And while you're at it, why don't ya toss that at 'em killer [tossing empty Coke can to gunner] That should take care of old lobster head shouldn't it?

Gwen DeMarco says: [Gwen and Jason encounter the chompers] What is this thing? I mean, it serves no useful purpose for there to be a bunch of chompy, crushy things in the middle of a hallway. No, I mean we shouldn't have to do this, it makes no logical sense, why is it here?

Jason Nesmith says: 'Cause it's on the television show.

Gwen DeMarco says: Well forget it! I'm not doing it! This episode was badly written!

Gwen DeMarco says: Does the rolling *help*?

Jason Nesmith says: Yes, it helps.

Sarris says: [Sarris believes that Nesmith plans to ram his ship] Let me remind you, sonny: I am a general. If you are counting on me to blink, then you are making a deadly mistake.

Jason Nesmith says: Well, let me tell you something, Sarris: It doesn't take a great actor to recognize a bad one. You're sweating.

Sarris says: You fool! You failed to realize that, with your armor gone, my ship will tear through yours like tissue paper.

Jason Nesmith says: And what you fail to realize is my ship... is dragging mines!

Jason Nesmith says: Never give up. Never surrender.

Buzz Lightyear says: Buzz, are you coming?

Buzz Lightyear says: No, I... I have a lot of catching up to do with my dad.

Emperor Zurg says: Good throw, son. That's my boy! Go long, Buzzy!

Buzz Lightyear says: Oh, you're a great dad. Yippee!

Buzz Lightyear says: Farewell!

Woody says: You are a child's play thing!

Buzz Lightyear says: You are a sad, strange little man, and you have my pity.

Buzz Lightyear says: To infinity and beyond!

Buzz Lightyear says: To infinity....and beyond!

Woody says: Buzz look, an alien!

Buzz Lightyear says: Where!

Woody says: *laughs*

Jason Nesmith says: You're not gonna die on the planet, Guy.

Guy Fleegman says: I'm not? Then what's my last name?

Jason Nesmith says: It's... uh... uh... I don't know.

Guy Fleegman says: Nobody knows. Do you know why? Because my character isn't important enough for a last name, because I'm gonna die five minutes in!

Gwen DeMarco says: Guy, you have a last name.

Guy Fleegman says: DO I? DO I? For all you know, I'm Crewman Number Six! Mommy... mommy...

Buzz Lightyear says: Etch! Draw that man in the chicken suit!

Rex says: AAH! It's The Chicken Man!

Rex says: He tortures toys...just for fun!

Bo Peep says: [Buzz jumps on the ledge] What are you doing? Get down from there.

Buzz Lightyear says: I'm gonna teach that boy a lesson!

Woody says: Yeah sure go ahead with your scary laser. [sarcastically pressing Buzz's laser button]

Buzz Lightyear says: Don't do that it's extremely dangerous! [Lenny warns the toys to jump back into the room off the ledge as Sid blows up the soldier and cheers]

Buzz Lightyear says: I could have stopped him!

Woody says: Buzz I'd love to see you try. Of course I'd love to see you as a crater.

Buzz Lightyear says: I just want you to know: even though you tried to terminate me, revenge is something we do not promote on my planet.

Woody says: Oh, well, that's good.

Buzz Lightyear says: [brings Woody face-to-face with him] But we're not on my planet, are we?

Woody says: [finally snapping to Buzz's space ranger antics] You are a toy! You're not the real Buzz Lightyear! You're an action figure! You are a child's plaything!

Buzz Lightyear says: You are a sad, strange little man.

Booster says: So that's why Buzz wants to ditch us!

Buzz Lightyear says: (Annoyed)I am NOT getting a nose ring. Nobody is getting a nose ring, (Tone shifts to angry) it's against the rules!

Buzz Lightyear says: [annoyed] I am NOT getting a nose ring. Nobody is getting a nose ring, [tone shifts to angry] it's against the rules!

Buzz Lightyear says: According to my navi-computer, the--

Woody says: Shut up! Just shut up you idiot!

Buzz Lightyear says: Sheriff, this is no time to panic.

Woody says: This is the perfect time to panic! I'm lost, Andy is gone, they're gonna move into their house in two days and it's all your fault!

Buzz Lightyear says: MY-- my fault?! If you hadn't pushed me out of the window in the first place--

Woody says: OHH yeah?! Well if YOU hadn't shown up inside your stupid little cardboard spaceship and taken away everything that was important to me--

Buzz Lightyear says: Don't talk to me about importance! Because of you, the security of this entire universe is in jeopardy!

Woody says: WHAT?! What are you talking about?!

Buzz Lightyear says: Right now, poised at the edge of the galaxy, Emperor Zurg has been secretly building a weapon with the destructive capacity to annihilate an entire planet! I alone have information that reveals this weapon's only weakness. And you my friend, are responsible for delayin' my rendezous with Star Command!

Woody says: YOU-ARE-A-TOOOOOYY!!! You aren't the real Buzz Lightyear, you're-- oh, you're an action figure! You are a child's play thing!

Buzz Lightyear says: You are a sad, strange little man. And you have my pity. Farewell.

Woody says: Oh, yeah?! Well, good riddance, ya looney! [Muttering to himself] "Rendezous with Star Command!"

Woody says: Oh, yeah?! Well, good riddance, ya looney! [Muttering to himself] 'Rendezous with Star Command!'
