Anonymous said: The Ass Crack bandit song has a lyric " Why you supose only the bandit knows ? " and i think thath i that moment Jeff and Annie are shown up. Could this mean something ? ( could this be that Jeff and Annie are secretly together ? )
First and foremost, if you want what I think…I’d say no.
That’s it. Just no. It doesn’t mean anything, and Jeff and Annie aren’t secretly together, as much as I partially love the idea.
Let’s be honest…Annie’s not the type to have a Facebook boyfriend if she’s got a real (albeit secret) one. I think that one little (creepy-ass) secret that was revealed last episode firmly puts Jeff and Annie in the camp of ‘not together, but still possible someday.’
Also, that Ass-Crack Bandit song…some lyrics have great meaning behind them. Some just fit the rhyming scheme well, and don’t sound out of place. Look at any song that puts any sort of nonsense lyrics in. Hell, even The Beatles did it with Hey Jude. Sometimes it just sounds good.
I think that particular lyric (the ACB one) when read into from that direction, points in a dangerous way. It makes you start thinking that there’s a solution to the mystery. Let me put myself out there and say that I don’t think Jeff knows who the Bandit is, nor does Annie, nor Shirley, Britta, or Duncan. It certainly isn’t any single one of them, but could have been all of them working separately, or could be none of them. I would surmise that the writers don’t know who the ACB is, and even Dan Harmon doesn’t know. There isn’t supposed to be a resolution to the case. I doubt it’ll be revisited again (seeing as this was the second time we’d heard of the ACB, I count this as revisit #1,) and I don’t really think it needs to be. It was a plot device to set up for Shirley’s Wham Line reveal at the end, and to put Jeff and Annie together in a cute caper.
As always, I could be wrong, but I’ll wait to be proven incorrect in this case.
