Question: Who is the mentally handicapped guy with thick glasses who says, "I think she's very beautiful."? He only appears in one scene and doesn't seem to contribute anything else to the movie.

Answer: He's just another "member" of their video night group, and the character probably wasn't needed for the whole movie.

Sam: OK, remember when Paul McCartney wrote the song "Michelle" and then he only wrote the first part, Annie said. And then he gave that part to John Lennon, and he wrote the part that said, "I love you, I love you, I love you." And Annie said that it wouldn't have been the same song without that... and that's why the whole world cried when the Beatles broke up on April 10, 1970.
