* {{Jossed}}: A fan theory is that [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep The Waitress]]'s name is Nikki Potnick because she couldn't find her name tag at her high school reunion and Frank had stolen the "Nikki Potnick" tag. During his "Ask Me Anything" for Reddit, Glenn Howerton said in no uncertain terms that "the Waitress is NOT Nikki Potnick."[[note]]The name "Nikki Potnick" is also mentioned in the first season episode "Underage Drinking". Since the entire gang knows who that is, and nobody seems to know what the Waitress's real name is, it can be safely assumed that the two aren't the same person.[[/note]]

** Another fan theory was that the letters for "Pepe Silvia" were actually letters addressed to "Pennsylvania," a misunderstanding brought about by Charlie's illiteracy. The writers claimed that this was entirely coincidental.

* StuntCasting: FX executives told Rob McElhenney that they would cancel the show unless they brought on a famous actor. They eventually settled on [=DeVito=]. This is one of the most successful examples of stunt casting in television history, turning a show with meddling reviews and poor ratings into an acclaimed ratings hit.

* ThrowItIn: A ''lot'' of the dialogue, especially the Gang's arguments with each other, are improvised or only partially scripted. This explains why Dee has so many one-on-one scenes with Charlie: Kaitlin Olson, her actress, is the best among the group at not {{Corpsing}} at Charlie Day's bizarre speeches.
