* {{Slimeball}}: His attempts at fatherly charm are forced and transparent, to put it mildly. You can practically see the slime oozing from his pores when he hands Claire her lunch.

** For starters, while Brian himself is a nice, polite young man, his name can be interpreted to mean "dickhead".
* JadedWashout: Of all the kids in detention, Brian is perhaps the one most likely to become this in adulthood. Though undeniably intelligent, he lacks the confidence, willpower, social skills, and paralyzing fear of imperfection necessary for him to succeed once he gets out of high school.



* MeaningfulName: If the letters of his name were switched around, "Brian" would spell "brain". It should be noted that "Johnson" is a slang term for penis, or "dick". He's literally a "brain" in a family of assholes.
