It's Valentines, and all day Allan has been working up the courage to ask his classmate if she wants to see a movie with him. He can feel his hands shaking, and he knows his voice will probably catch, but he persists through his anxiety and asks her. The way she looks sort of surprised and says, "You mean, tonight?" is confirmation of Allan's worst nightmare, and he immediately begins to fumblingly backpedal, including the lie that "he forgot what day it was" and that "it would probably be weird" and "maybe some other time." He retreats and is doused with shame and self-loathing. It's here that he discovers there's a physical component to this kind of pain. Years later, he'll reconnect with her, and jokingly ask her if she remembers this horribly awkward moment they shared. She doesn't, but says she totally would have seen a movie with him (2011)

Gary's first and only performance of his experimental puppet show "Hello, I Am Gary's Hand & This Is Gary's Other Hand" does not go over well. Some claim there simply was no story, while others point out the show's complete absence of puppets as an odd creative choice for a puppet show. Gary maintains afterwards that his hands were meant to be naked to make a point, and if people have a problem with hand nudity, that's on them, he's glad they walked out. Despite keeping a brave face amongst friends, he is heartbroken and embarrassed to admit how much he believed in it. If only they had stayed for the third act, they would have understood, he thinks. That's where it all really comes together. Gary's Hand and Gary's Other Hand meet Gary himself (pictured), and are forced to reckon with their undeniable interconnectedness, despite arguing bitterly with each other for the first two acts. Wanda is one of five people who sit through it in its entirety, fascinated by this person's commitment to something so strange (1992)

Gary still can't seem to remember who came in first when they all played fantasy football last season... Oh, that's right, HE CAN. Just let him have this, Dave. (2016)

Even in the middle of a great party, surrounded by friends and loved ones, Allan will suddenly and without warning feel himself disappearing. Some internal switch gets flipped, and all he can think about is how embarrassing it would be if someone looked down and saw him just hovering there, drink in hand, carrying on a conversation. No one ever looks down, of course. He swallows his fear and hopes the feeling won't overwhelm him and make him disappear completely. The moment passes, and he is whole again, with no one the wiser. His extreme discomfort and self-awareness at these moments keeps him from noticing that every party is filled with awkward floating human torsos trying not to disappear (2016)


Whoa, dude, careful, please pay attention to the road, Allan (2016)

Zzzzzzzz (2016)

Any minute now. Could literally be any minute. (2015)

Any minute now, Allan is going to get a call or a text, and he's going to be invited last minute to the New Year's Eve party of his dreams. This year's going to start out exactly the way he foresees (2015)

Gary, overworked and on little sleep, is shocked at the horrific fantasy that leaps into his mind while he takes a drink of water. He reassures himself that no one can see inside his mind, but hopes if anyone could see his thoughts that they would understand it was more about getting out of work and not at all about anyone getting hurt. And because he's just really, really tired. Walking back to his desk, he wonders to whom he just felt the compulsive need to defend and justify his thoughts, but he never questions the necessity to do so. (2015)

Two weeks after Randy's wife Laura's funeral, Gary takes him to an outdoor cafe. Caring for Laura had been Randy's main focus for the last two years, and the last three months of her illness had been particularly brutal for the family. Gary knows there's really nothing he can say to make his oldest friend's pain go away, and they often fall into silences. Randy is simply grateful for Gary's presence, which is enough. (2012)

After telling his friend Tara that he really liked the very same movie he told Glen that he hated, Allan cannot tell which of these two seemingly opposed opinions is his own. He begins to feel like he has no true opinion of anything, since he felt like he was being honest with each of them, and experiences his first identity crisis. If Glen and Tara compare notes and confront him about his differing opinions, he thinks, he'll just say "Well, there were some good things about it and some bad things about it." He's not very comforted by this solution, plus OH MY GOSH HE FORGOT WHAT HE TOLD ISAAC. "Who have I become?" he mumbles to himself, and wonders if his mom will let him just stay home from school tomorrow to strategize. 7th grade is much more complicated than he ever could have imagined (2009)

Gary doesn't understand why I had to "bring up all that old stuff" but he's the one with the Johnny "Lightning" Rogers photo on his wall (2015)

Promotional photograph from "Race for Space", a straight-to-video flop starring a young Gary (in his one and only foray into the film world) as Johnny "Lightning" Rogers, a race car driver whose life is changed when a zany visitor from outer space lands in his back yard, and tells him that he's been chosen to represent Earth in an intergalactic race for the survival of mankind. Gary's line "Looks like it's time for "Lightning" to strike TWICE" before he punches Evil Alien Overlord Gryzz in the giant eye for the second time (saving all the other planets from destruction) will be repeatedly quoted by Allan to tease his father about being in one of the worst movies of all time, even though his initial reaction to seeing the movie at age 11 was one of pure awe and pride in his intergalactic hero of a father (1983)

Wanda always dresses as the Tooth Fairy just in case Allan wakes up while she retrieves his teeth. When Gary asks why she thinks the Tooth Fairy wears a waist apron, she says, simply, because of "All the blood" and leaves to do the job. Gary is simultaneously unsettled and intrigued (2003)

After 500 plays, Maxell still delivers high fidelity. (1983)

Wanda knows that dinners with Gary are stressful for Trevor, and lets him know how grateful she is that he came tonight. Trevor is always astonished by how immediately calmed he is by Wanda's presence. They ride the rest of the way home silently, enjoying the magical simplicity of a moment that, a couple years ago, neither could have imagined possible (2015)

Gary specifically told Wanda's brother Trevor that the party they were going to was "sort of fancy" and feels like Trevor's choice of wardrobe is a direct and aggressive display of disrespect, and the old familiar tension between them makes for an awkward subway trip. Wanda recognizes Trevor's shirt as the one she bought him in honor of his first year sober, and remembers how he tried to pretend he wasn't crying when she told him he deserved a nice shirt. Her next gift to her brother will a tie, she thinks, as she avoids eye contact with Gary for the rest of the ride (2015)
