While watching Love Actually for the 4,928th time, I picked up on something that I'd never noticed before.

It's established pretty early on that Liam Neeson and Emma Thompson are good friends, right?

Here they are sticking their hands in some Frosted Flakes, as good friends do.

And then the entire movie happens, blah blah blah, and then Liam Neeson meets Claudia Schiffer's character, Carol.

Here's her name again: "Carol."

And even though her name is "Carol," Liam Neeson nervously calls her "Karen."

WAS HE JUST NERVOUS OR WAS THAT A FREUDIAN SLIP?

(I googled "Freudian slip" so we can all look at it together.)

BECAUSE AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW OR POSSIBLY FORGOT, EMMA THOMPSON'S CHARACTER IS NAMED "KAREN."

In fact, "Karen" is the first word Liam Neeson says in the entire movie.

So basically Liam Neeson's character might be in love with Emma Thompson's character, because that lady's name was totally "Carol" and Richard Curtis is a sneaky, sneaky man. Have a good day, bye.
