Added DiffLines:

* DeterminedDefeatist: Al knows that he's miserable, that his life sucks, and that it's probably never going to get any better. He knows that pretty much everything he does is doomed to fail, and that any good luck just means an equivalent amount of bad luck will be round to bite him in the arse later. He still keeps on going, no matter what, and he will ''never'' give up.

Added DiffLines:

* SuicideAsComedy: Al isn't actively suicidal (for the most part anyway), but he ''frequently'' jokes about wanting to kill himself or otherwise die, mostly as a means of expressing misery and/or frustration.

Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: As far as Al's concerned, anyway. He treats seeing her naked or in lingerie, as well as hearing about her sex life, as BrainBleach, and in "Banking on Marcy," seeing her have an [[TheImmodestOrgasm orgasm]] in public rendered him impotent.

* {{Determinator}}: Despite all the misery he's been through, Al still keeps on going and refuses to take the easy way out by killing himself.

to:

* {{Determinator}}: Despite all the misery he's been through, Al still keeps on going and refuses to take the easy way out by killing himself. Al notes this on the Season 3 premiere "He Thought He Could" (where Al finds an overdue library book and confronts the evil librarian who constantly put him down as a child) and claims that this is what makes him a winner, rather than a loser.



* FutureLoser: His proudest moment in his life is scoring four touchdowns in a single game while in high school.



* SoulSuckingRetailJob: He sells shoes for a living and hates every second of it.




to:

* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: Al gives a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome glorious one]] to the librarian when she calls him a loser. Instead, [[http://youtu.be/jyLmSAnoR6g Al bluntly points out that, despite all the misery and hell he's gone through in his life]], the mere fact that [[{{Determinator}} he keeps on going]] and [[DeathByDespair hasn't killed himself]] is what makes him a ''winner''.
-->'''Al:''' So you think I'm a loser? Just because I have a stinking job that I hate? a family that doesn't respect me? A whole city that curses the day I was born? Well, that may mean loser to you, but let me tell you somethin'. Every morning when I wake up, I know it's not going to get any better until I go back to sleep again. So I get up, have my watered-down Tang and still-frozen Pop-Tart, get in my car with no upholstery, no gas, and six more payments to fight traffic just for the privilege of putting cheap shoes on the cloven hooves of people like you. I'll never play football like I thought I would. I'll never know the touch of a beautiful woman. And I'll never again know the joy of driving without a ''bag'' on my head! But I'm not a loser. Because despite it all, me and every other guy who will never be what he wanted to be are still out there, being what we ''don't'' want to be 40 hours a week for life. And the fact that I haven't put a gun in my mouth, you ''pudding'' of a woman, makes me a ''winner''!

** He also tells off the older woman who he thinks is having an affair with the underage Bud, calling her a "cradle-robbing pervert" and brings in the cops to arrest her. It's the wrong woman, unfortunately, but the right reaction.
