"And then what happen?"

I always took that "happen" thing to be an intentional running gag.

Possibly starting with AYB ("what happen !!" - "someone set up us the bomb !!")

It isn't intentional.

Unfortunately, I've gotten so used to it that between years of living with him and now three years in Korea, I have started to overlook it in editing scripts. Though I'm not editing for DNPWWO anyhow.

Actually, it works perfectly well as a running gag.

Incidentally, Nikki's housemate was called "Becky" when she was first introduced. Her name (but apparently not her looks and personality) got changed somewhere along the way, I think I remember a Poe note about it. I should probably update the wiki -- but the wiki needs updating for a lot of DNPWWO stuff. I don't follow DNPWWO nearly as closely as I followed Errant Story, so am not really the person to do that; anybody interested?

Yeah, the problem is I have a pool of throwaway names I tend to "randomly" draw from when I need a quick name for a minor character. Which was fine, except it's a small pool and I've been doing this for a long time so I ended up repeating them a lot. Rebecca is apparently one of those names. Phil is another. To make matters worse, the thing about them constantly forgetting their names isn't a running joke so much as it's actually what I do, every single time they appear. So Nikki's roomates have gone through several names by this point.
