Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
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.
Ensemble Darkhorse: Murray the dog, as noted above. It says something that Academy Award winning actress Helen Hunt was frequently outperformed by a dog.
They Just Didn't Care: In one episode, Paul's parents are in a production of The Pirates of Penzance. Except for having pirates and "The Major General's Song" in it, it's nothing like the actual operetta. No one in the building had ever done Pirates?
It was stated that the cast started making changes to the script and it got so bad that Paul (who was directing) just gave up and let them do what they wanted.
