** Kathy, full stop. Joy, to a lesser extent.

** Kathy, full stop.

Joy, to a lesser extent.extent, though she does occasionally show regret for her bad actions, and even gets the occasional PetTheDog moment.



* MoodSwinger: Dana is very emotional, and it doesn't take a lot for her to switch from hysterical laughter to loud sobs and back again. This is especially evident during story time, because all the emotional beats of a story hits her much harder than anyone else.



* NiceGuy:
** Louis, who is probably the single nicest adult in the series. That is, unless he's been [[ImportantHaircut made to shave his mustache off]] -- then he becomes an uptight, snooty, borderline {{Jerkass}}. Luckily it doesn't last.
** Myron is one of the friendliest and most laid-back kids on the thirtieth floor. Says a lot that when he in ''Falling Down'' gets complete freedom to do whatever he wants, he never does anything worse than skip a few tests or lessons he doesn't feel like taking.
** Allison, in addition to being the closest thing the series has to an OnlySaneMan, is also one of the kindest kids in the series, always doing kind things for others. She even tries to befriend Kathy, even if this backfires.
** Maurecia, though less blatantly so than Allison, is still a very sweet girl and everyone likes her. It doesn't hurt that {{Jerkass}} Joy is her best friend -- Maurecia's sweetness just comes better across when contrasted against Joy's far less sweet nature.
** And of course Eric Ovens, who's always friendly and polite, even if everyone mistakenly thinks he's a jerk because to the other two Erics are jerks.



* PerpetualSmiler: D.J. When he's asked why he's always so happy, he replies, "You need a reason to be sad. You don't need a reason to be happy."

The firemen saved\\
The baby who screamed.
