For the film:

  • Fan Nickname: See how many people remember Choi as anything besides the 'Klepto Guy'.
  • The Woobie: Ben. He starts the film trapped in a lowpaying job and crap lifestyle, gets a taste of the high life only to have it knocked from under him in the most brutal fashion, has the money he saved for college stolen by his mentor, gets beaten up and robbed by Cole, isolates his friends and gets kicked off a project he spent a year working on, and ends the film without any benefit from his efforts.

For the Game Show:

  • Mis-blamed: The allegations of quiz show rigging in the late 50s were sparked by investigations into Dotto, not this show.
  • Never Live It Down: Became synonymous with the quiz show scandals when they were exposed in the late 1950s. Also responsible for all three networks being saddled with laws enforced by Standards and Practices, many of which are still in effect today.
