* CatsAreMean: Averted though Fritter really seems intent on asking one specific person for help (on a whim from seeing her picture on the net) and brushing off anyone else. He can also be quite rude and pushy if only in a naive short of way.



* NeverMyFault: Fritter passes the buck onto another teammate for messing up the mission because of a radio malfunction that blew their cover when he was already spotted first by the big bad. In truth it was a combination of both and just bad timing for everyone.
