YMMV / Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Was Pete really in love with Sharon at the end of Season 2, or was it a subconcious desire to sabotage Sharon & Johnny's relationship out of jealousy that one of his friends had met the love of their life whilst he was still looking for "the one"?
  • Angst? What Angst?: Pete tells Sharon he's in love with her in the Season 2 finale. She rejects him, and he promptly flies to France. He then returns to Boston in the second episode of the season, completely over Sharon due to his new French girlfriend.
  • Foe Yay: Pete & Ashley. It stopped being subtext eventually.
  • Growing the Beard: Season 2.
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • Melissa, Pete's girlfriend in Season 1, breaks up with him in the pilot episode & gives him a "The Reason You Suck" Speech telling him that he'll end up dying alone. At the end of the Series Fauxnale, Pete ends up alone as Ashley sets-out to leave Boston with his unborn child & is the only character left alone at the end of the show.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • The initial characterisation of Berg, played by Ryan Reynolds, is that of a directionless college student. The career of Ryan Reynolds would take off after playing the lead character in Van Wilder... who was a directionless college student.
    • In a Season 2 episode, Berg realises that he slept with Pete's girlfriend 3 years before they met & when he tells Pete, he questions if he's supposed to ask every girl he dates if she "intends to date Pete Dunville in 3 years?" - In the later episodes of Season 4, Pete starts a relationship with Ashley nearly 3 years after she started dating Berg.
    • In the final season, a story arc featured a girl who went to the same High School as Berg returning as the creator of a new comic book, having based the main character on Berg. Since Marvel & DC started adapting their properties into movies, Ryan Reynolds has been linked to & cast as several comic book characters, including the lead role in two seperate franchises.
    • Ryan Reynolds & Nathan Fillion both played Hal Jordan in 2011 - Reynolds starred in the live-action film, whilst Fillion voiced the character in the DTV Green Lantern: Emerald Knights.
    • One of the Halloween episodes has Johnny (Nathan Fillion) having to undo the work of a mad scientist. He would later go on to play Captain Hammer, the antagonist of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
  • Ho Yay: Pete & Berg. At one point after a fight, they reconcile and hug in the middle of Johnny & Sharon's wedding ceremony, leading Robert Goulet (Who was conducting the ceremony) to remark they'll marry the guys later. When it's legal.
  • One True Threesome: Pete, Berg and Sharon.
  • Retroactive Recognition:
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The intro theme in the first two seasons is a variation of the instrumental of "Blister In The Sun" By the Violent Femmes.
