These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Cult Classic: And due to its late-night energy, it works perfectly as a midnight movie.
Older Than They Think: In addition to the Kafka references, a great deal of material from the first twenty minutes was taken to some degree from Joe Frank's radio monologue "Lies". Frank sued, but apparently admired the direction Joseph Minion took his ideas.
Early-Installment Weirdness: The Katie-Michael romance/sex references. They disappear midway through the 1st season and their characters move in a more balanced direction as opposed to the 1-dimensional Slap-Slap-Kiss dynamic the characters had with one another early on.
Ho Yay: The boys can be very... friendly with each other.
According to the real Daniel O'Brien the characters of Soren and Dan are "accidently falling in love"
From the Secretly Most Ridicules Moments episode.
Michael: Before there was the Joker, a weird looking dude with face scars had to go into a store all like "Green hair spray and lipstick please" Katie: And a nurse uniform and wig, you know, just in case. Soren: I've got one. Michael: A wig or a nurse's uniform? Because I'd like to see you in either.
In the James Bond episode Soren and Katie are starring deeply into each other's eyes, clearly about to kiss, when Michael ruins it by trying to make out with Soren. It's Katie who pushes him away.
In the Christmas episode Michael drinks hot coco but spits it out.
Katie: Hot? Michael: Thanks, you too. We should sex later. *Points at Soren* Us too. Soren: *fistpumps*
From the same episode.
Michael: Let's see some boobs. Katie: Michael I'm not showing you my boobs again. Michael: Not you! *first points at Soren but changes his mind to Dan* Dan show me your boobs or I will concurs right now. Dan: Okay. Which one do you want? Michael: Either one. Dan: That's...that. *shows left nipple*
From the 4 Worst Lessons Disney Taught Us episode.
Michael: What about Beauty and The Beast? It taught us not to judge a book but it's hairy, ill-tempered cover. *pets Dan's chin, with Dan stretching his neck a bit and smiling*
In the Pixar episode Dan gets lost in his thoughts, which gets Michael exited.
Michael: Did I win already!? I'm in his head! Soren, check him for boners!
Also from the Pixar episode.
Dan: I had you guys though. Michael: I'm still totally cocked buddy! Katie: *looks at Michael's crotch* Oooh my god, he is. Dan: Thanks man.
In the "6 insane stereotypes" episode Dan is mysteriously wearing a hoodie Soren wore in an earlier episode. Soren Bowie later explained on tumblr that (the character) Dan was cold and forgot his jacket, so Soren took off his hoodie and let Dan wear it. This has apparently happened more than once.
