** He'll even do this to his own son. Several times he (somehow) convinces Peter to caddy for him in a round of golf, only to tip him incredibly insultingly at the end. to wit:
---> '''Roger''': Peter, you really came through for me today. You carrried my clubs... gave me advice... found all but three of my balls... a man couldn't ask for a better caddy; let's not ruin it now.
---> '''Peter''' ''*holding a golf club threateningly, raging*'': FIVE CENTS ''A HOLE''?! ARE YOU '''NUTS'''?!

* YesMan: Can't see than his intern Skip is one, only buttering him up until he can latch on to an executive.



** Shown best in the series about his intern Skip, whom he doesn't realize is only buttering him up until he can latch on to an executive. He's genuinely hurt because he thought the hyperbolic flattery ("Mr. Fox, you are perfect") was sincere.

* KarmaHoudini: Despite being the strip's biggest ButtMonkey, Jason still gets away with a lot of things. [[note]]Among the stuff he's done: Destroyed (either himself or through Quincy) Roger's antique gold watch, and ''Beatles White Album'' Andy's tickets to an Inaugural Ball, at least one chandelier, Paige's homework many times (hard copies ''and'' on the computer) and quite a lot of Paige's clothing. He traded Paige's bicycle to Marcus for a collectors card, sold her belongings on eBay, once ordered ''ten'' computers and a truckload of novelty goods on his parent's credit, has given Paige wrong answers while tutoring (blackmailing her in one case) and has made countless attempts to extort or con money.]]

Jason's pet iguana. He's very cute for a lizard, and takes everything with reptilian aplomb. (Unless Jason is throwing him at Paige, at which point his expression becomes appropriately panicked). Unlike most comic strip animals, Quincy is usually played straight, without any FunnyAnimal behavior or thought balloons. He sometimes gains these characteristics in order to poke fun at the trope.
