* ButtMonkey: Harold. Exploited at work because of his ethnicity, has parking spaces stolen from him by extreme sports enthusiasts, his best friend uses his scissors for manscaping, he gets attacked by a raccoon, Neil Patrick Harris steals his car, he gets arrested for jaywalking (well, admittedly he also unintentionally punched the cop in the face), his laptop gets destroyed, he gets clotheslined by a tree branch while riding a cheetah, and on top of all of that, he's completely unable to talk to the girl he has a crush on. Harold isn't just the ButtMonkey; he's distinctly headed into [[TheWoobie woobie]] territory.

As H&K exit, Kumar asks if they do actually have VD, Harold goes "Beats me." But from the looks on their faces, he managed to guess quite accurately....
