* IncurableCoughOfDeath: Justified. Twice, Andy has trouble talking due to having a cough. It's not acknowledged by anyone in-story and is easily missed...but it foreshadows his lung cancer. What justifies this? The real Andy only learned he had cancer after his loved ones convinced him to see a doctor about his worsening cough.

Added DiffLines:

* [[GranolaGirl Granola Guy]]: What Andy actually was, but since he's almost always "in character" even during his personal life, we don't learn of this til later in the film.
