** Bob has very light tan skin and a combination of facial features that make it uncertain whether he's North African, Hispanic, a tan Caucasian, some form of Asian, or multiracial.

Added DiffLines:

* '''Played For Laughs''': Trying to find Bob's ethnicity becomes a RunningGag, and to add some HypocriticalHumor to the mix, Bob wonders what ethnicity Alice is.
* '''Played For Drama''': Bob is born in segregation era America, where he's been targeted for his tanned appearance. To make matters worse, the minorities are uncomfortable with him for not sharing the same resemblances.

* '''Zig Zagged''': ???Bob is brown skinned and of unclear ethnicity then it is revealed he has Filipino parents. However he is adopted. He reunites with his birth mother who is a tanned Caucasian - however she was just the invitro carrier. The trail goes cold from there. At least until they get involved with genetic analysis....

* '''Reconstructed''': These strangers made a fool of themselves by associating Bob with the wrong race. They learn the hard way not to be racist.
