* DeadpanSnarker: Dorothy rarely speaks above monotone, so her wit is always delivered in the form of dry humor. Such as when Roger figured it was okay to use her to draw fire from Beck's henchmen, [[SuperToughnessbecause she was a robot.]] After being shot at and nearly engulfed by an explosion, she shows up covered in singe marks and her hair frazzled, and tells Roger he's a louse.
