* BookDumb: Ethan. For example, he thought the Grand Canyon was in Texas and that it was artificial. Peter corrects him, saying it's in Arizona and that nature carved it.

* KarmaHoudini: Surprisingly, Ethan never gets arrested for smoking pot or [[spoiler:stealing a deportation officer's van to "rescue" Peter]]. In fact, he is actually rewarded by eventually getting to [[spoiler:appear on ''TwoAndAHalfMen''.]] Every single thing negative consequence of his actions lands on Peter instead.

* ActorAllusion: Peter has never taken drugs before (or so he claims).
** And the way he looks when [[spoiler:he and Ethan ''finally'' arrive at the hospital]] brings to mind Creator/RobertDowneyJr as Film/SherlockHolmes.
** Zach Galifianakis plays a ManChild LethallyStupid FatIdiot [[spoiler:who actually started the whole mess]]. Sounds like [[TheHangover Alan]].

Ethan is this, of the 1987 film ''Film/PlanesTrainsAndAutomobiles''.course.



* LethallyStupid: Ethan. Ethan! Ethan!!! E-T-H-A-N.
* ManChild: '''Ethan'''. He couldn't be more immature if he was an actual teenager. Peter has some emotional problems as well, although stress could explain both their issues (although since Ethan's the one causing most of the stress...).
* [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Manic Pixie Nightmare Dude]]: Also Ethan.
