Added DiffLines:

* MaliciousMisnaming: Eustace always addresses Courage as "stupid dog" or a description synonymous with such. In fact, Eustace has only mentioned his name ''twice'' in the show's entire run. The second time only was to mock Muriel's love for the dog ("'Courage, Courage, Courage!' That stupid dog gets all the good stuff around here!") so the first time was the only time that actually has him address Courage by his name.
