Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: In the first movie, George opposes adopting Beethoven--saying he's a cute little puppy for now but will grow up to be a big, destructive dog. And while others might be more forgiving of it, the messes Beethoven causes would tick anyone off.


Added DiffLines:

* SiblingRivalry: Averted in the first two movies. The Newton siblings regularly do activities together and never squabble despite their different ages.
