  • Trivia

    • Andy said that the remaining assistants ruined "another relationship." The only relationships we have seen Andy in during the running of this show were the ones with Jen [which was ruined by them] and Michelle. The thing is, Andy told Colin that things weren't working out with Michelle in the episode when he was sick, so he had Colin break up with Michelle for him. How is that "ruining a relationship" if Andy assigned him to do it? RESPONSE: My guess is Andy's relationship with Michelle was ruined because The assitants invited Jen to his 'birthday' party.

    • Mykell's goof was he didn't come up with a good excuse for Andy being late.

    • Colin's goof was he didn't make a good promotion for the No Nose Andy show.

    • Triumphant Trio: "We're the triumphant trio!"
      Andy's three friends come in and help the assistants to make the hotel room look stylish for Andy's girlfriend. Andy makes a reference to them being "queer eyes" which is a direct reference to Bravo's series "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," a show in which five gay men, the "Fab 5," go around helping straight men change their lifestyles so that they can be more pleasing to their girlfriends/wives.
