*** This would depend on precisely how the Pencil functions; is it truly creating 1961-minted pennies from nothing, or is it summoning existing '61 pennies from elsewhere in the world to the location of the tapping?

** Perhaps the pillows aren't an Object by themselves, but work as part of the Bed? And in order to use the Bed outside of the Room you'd have to dismantle it to get it through the door, at which point perhaps it counts as 'destroyed' and whatever it's powers are switch to another bed somewhere in the world.

* One of this troper's friends bought the pen in an auction after the series finished. [[CaptainObvious It doesn't work.]] This troper finds this annoying.

* What if... and I'm just wondering... somebody were to just jump out the window of the Room? Where would they be? A vast empty wasteland of nothingness? Just... what would happen?! And for that matter, isn't EVERYTHING in the Room already an object? The Bed, the Water Faucet, the Television, the Door, the Blinds, the Medicine Cabinet... what do they do?
** Why would they all be objects? It never said that the Event turned ''everything'' in the Room into an object. As for what would happen if someone jumped out of the window, it would probably be bad. I don't recommend it.
** The canon Objects are mostly small and all easily carried around. Probably nobody removed the furniture just because of how difficult it would be to move, especially because of the way a lot of motels have televisions chained down, beds screwed to the floor, and things like that. If someone were to climb out the window, perhaps he'd be able to wander the world of 1:20:44 PM on May 4, 1961 pretty much indefinitely.
*** If you climb out the window, then you're immune to the effects of the [[Literature/TheRestaurantAtTheEndOfTheUniverse Total Perspective Vortex.]] Obviously.
*** Not all of the things left in the room were particularly big. The pillows on the bed for example.
