  • I heard a theory that Andy hired people to play his parents initially, and that’s why he introduced his father as Andrew and why they were different people from their later appearances. In the theory, Andy was trying to live out a fantasy of not being completely ignored by his father, and so while he kept his mother’s name consistent, he renamed his father to his own name to pretend that his father hadn’t actually made Andy’s brother his namesake by taking the name from Andy after he turned 6. There’s no confirmation, but I think it makes a lot of sense. Also, Dwight not knowing Pretty Woman makes perfect sense. He often claims to know much more about things than he actually does, but he legitimately believes he knows a lot about those things because he’s spent his life living in a bubble. A bunch of those movies he’s seen may include Lord of the Rings, The Dark Knight, and Star Wars, but a bunch of them could also include weird Belsnickel specials and stuff. He definitely seems to have his preferences, and I have a really hard time believing that Pretty Woman would be on his radar. There’s a bunch of other things that I think are pretty reaching as plot holes. However, there are also a lot of things I never would have noticed myself and were pretty cool to see.

  • Alright. As a big fan of both The Office and Friends, the two shows conflict with each other. In an early episode of The Office, ("Sexual Harassment" Season 2 Episode 2), Michael mentions Friends and how he and some of the office members are like some of the characters in Friends. In Friends, the episode The One With Princess Consuela (Season 10 Episode 14), the actor who played Darryl in The Office, Craig Robinson, is the person that helps Phoebe change her name. This, therefore means that they are conflicting
