** This also applies in how he treats said family; he won't hesitate to call his son or surrogate son out (referring to Chumlee) for a dumb decision, but he also is a lot more tolerant of bad decisions than any normal boss would be and is generally very willing to forgive them for said bad decisions.

* ParentalSubstitute: To Chumlee, as his home life growing up wasn't great.



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He might not be happy if Corey or Chumlee fuck up and lose the business money, but he'll always forgive them, even if he does chew them out for it.



* OddFriendship: Is surprisingly close to Chumlee

to:

* OddFriendship: Is surprisingly close to ChumleeChumlee. Although, given that Chum is like one of his grandchildren because of how close he is to the Harrisons, it makes a bit more sense in a familial context.

* BreakoutCharacter: Chumlee was originally a background character who had ADayInTheLimelight episode in Season 1. The producers realized his status as this trope and so, come Season 2, he'd become an AscendedExtra.

* BerserkButton: Spending too much money on something, buying something that can't be resold at a profit, or basically anything that costs the shop money. The time Corey spent $38,000 on a hot air balloon without knowing anything about the market for something like that or having a buyer for it lined up is a good example. Rick was ''seriously'' pissed, red-faced and yelling at the top of his lungs. Even the Old Man knew enough to stay out of it until Rick calmed down. There are a few times during the scene where Rick glances at the cameras for a split-second and you can tell he's seriously holding himself back because the cameras are running. It'll be a cold day in Hell before Corey buys another hot-air balloon.

* ButIReadABookAboutIt: Sick and confined to bed for an extended time as a child, Rick developed a lifelong love of reading and has a sponge-like memory. While he never finished high school, he gives every indication of being self-educated to at least a Bachelor's degree level in physics and the Master's degree level in history. He is also skilled at identifying whether antiques are real or not through considerable knowledge of woodcraft and metallurgy. He's also an extremely canny businessman.
