Trivia

  • Ryan’s (Matthew Perry) first line of the series is the same first line he says in the premiere of The Odd Couple (2015), in which he also starred.
  • The name Ryan comes from the Gaelic-Irish word meaning King, which is Ryan’s last name.
  • The character Lauren once introduces herself as Lauren Bennett, a play on the name of the actress who plays her, Laura Benanti.
  • The name of the radio station Ryan works for is KBAL. There is no radio station on the air with those call letters, though there was a Texas based KBAL as recently as 2009. A long time Baltimore radio (and TV) station uses the call letters WBAL.
