Baxter is attempting to dissuade Ryan Vogelson from buying a home in a Fox News exclusive clip from Thursday's upcoming episode

Mike Baxter (Tim Allen) is a man with a plan on "Last Man Standing."

In a Fox News exclusive clip of the comedy series' episode airing Thursday night, Ryan Vogelson (Jordan Masterson) is seen discussing an opportunity he has to purchase a house on the same block as Mike -- and notes that he's seriously contemplating it. 

The home needs some renovation but Ryan thinks it could be a smart investment. Meanwhile, Mike attempts to dissuade Ryan from scooping up the property because he actually wants to buy it.  

"I'm going to buy that house," Mike tells neighbor Chuck Larabee (Jonathan Adams) after Ryan leaves the room.

'LAST MAN STANDING' AND 'HOME IMPROVEMENT' CROSSOVER LEAVES FANS WANTING REBOOT

"Last Man Standing" is currently in its ninth and final season. Allen previously spoke to Fox News about how he was proud the show lasted for so long on FOX but is also understandably upset to be saying goodbye to another character.

He admitted that going to set every day was "horrible" knowing it was one day closer to the final day of production.

"Home Improvement" ran from 1991 to 1999 on ABC. Allen's Taylor was known as "The Tool Man" and the host of a DIY-centric television show.

"It was really confusing for me to play Tim Taylor, who, I think of Mike Baxter is an evolution of that character. He's smarter, went to college," the star described. "We don't know whether Tim Taylor was really stupid or really smart. I mean, I played the guy I wasn't sure."
