Tom desperately wants to be a member of The Cul-de-Sac Crew, and is romantically/physically attracted to Jules. Tom often attempts to be included in the group by doing odd tasks, like running items between Jules' and Ellie's homes or bring up "Jules' wedding" if the group strays from the topic. Tom even followed the gang to Hawaii uninvited, but was not noticed until the end of their trip.

Tom makes wine in his garage by stomping grapes with his bare feet, but claims the wine is from his family's vineyard.
Tom's wife Joanne is deceased. She was fairly social, and because of her death, Tom has been very lonely which is why he tries so hard to be included in The Cul-de-Sac Crew.
