[[WMG: Benny never actually told Mark and Roger they didn't have to pay rent.]]

Either Mark and Roger are remembering the interpretation they want to be true or they're straight up trying to gaslight Benny by insisting he said something he didn't say, but either way, Benny never had any intention of letting them live there perpetually rent-free. He really doesn't seem to be such an asshole as to demand an entire year's worth of payment on Christmas unless he's been pushed off over and over. And, from the scene at Life Cafe, we know Mark really has an incredible disregard for the value of others' time and money. He's terribly entitled. So, for example, Benny says "You're golden," meaning he'll be a good landlord and not drive prices up and they simply take it to mean what they want it to mean.

*What about the parts of "What You Own" in which we see and hear Riger, even though he's 1990 miles away from Mark and his camera?

**I wish to know this noodle incident; please elaborate. Or, in theatre speak: "Tell me more, tell me more."

*Which is why it's not weird that he's narrating everything, even when he doesn't appear to be filming! You are so brilliant, I could kiss you!

*This theory doesn't make much sense, as almost everything that happens to him in act 2 contradicts this. He clearly interacts with other people in act 2, going to buzzline with Joanne and eventually working there, he attempts to calm everybody down in "Goodbye Love," and he tries to help Mimi in the same song. ("I know a place/a clinic) In the stage version Mark's mom calls, and there's no way she wouldn't know if he had died. Finally, if he had died, the final documentary would've been about people living in New York instead of focusing on Angel's life (and other people with HIV), as he only realized the idea in "What You Own". I'm not entirely sure where you got this idea from.

* Angel is actually kind of a common male name in the Latino community, which is the original Angel and a lot of actors who play Angel's ethnicity. So it's not too odd if Angel is her birth name. It's usually pronounced AANG-HELL. But I can see her changing her name to Angel as well.

* Unless the the writter of this WMG is using "real name" in the sense of "full name" or "legal name", which is very common in some places. (E.g. "His real name isn't Tommy, it's Thomas. Her name isn't Sam, it's Samantha.") Otherwise, as a name is simply an identifier, any name can be considered a "real" name. For example, this troper was once known exclusively as "the ''HAMMER''!"(relating to a noodle incident) for about a year and a half among his high-school drama department. It fulfilled the functionality of a name, and thus was a "real" name among that group and that time period, but no one would call it it a "real name".

[[spoiler: During the I'll Cover You reprise, the last line (one of them) is "525,600 Seasons of Love". As it is Angel's funeral, and they are all speaking for her, They're talking of her life. If you multiply 131,400 by four (one for each season), you get 525,600 seasons of love(/life).

To put simply, Angel helped them believe in love, and so all 525,600 seasons of love stands for Angel's life span.]]

- this is actually kind of offensive. Who cares what her parents chose as a name for her. The name she chose for herself is the one that matters. It is her REAL name.
