* 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.

* CryingWolf: Andy faces the consequences of this in the final act. Even the ''tabloids'' refused to run the story about his having cancer, as they'd been burned too many times before.

** When the ''SaturdayNightLive'' call-in segment aired to vote Kaufman to stay or leave, the film showed it presented by Lorne Michaels. In reality, Lorne had left ''SNL'' years earlier, and the segment was hosted by Gary Kroeger.
