As for who his father is, I don't think the Wally scene drops ANY clue about that. The joke with Wally is that he has NO PERSONALITY. He's a guy who thinks he's Marlon Brando, though he bears no resemblance to him and can't even do a good impression. It's a joke about people, particularly young people, who don't have any character of their own yet, so they model themselves after an icon. Wally takes it to the comic extreme. It's brilliant for one scene, but could turn into a bad SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE character if they flog it anymore. So, I doubt that they will.
Speaking of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, the Wally scene instantly reminded me of an old SNL sketch from the 80s in which Jon Lovitz is a big Woody Allen who also talks and acts exactly like Woody Allen. It's another joke about a man without a personality of his own.
Best post in this thread so far.....
btw: since he says he is there to tell his parents that they can convert his bedroom into a study, doesn't this suggest that Andy is "dad?"
