* '''Zig Zagged''': "Charlie" is Bob's attempt to make himself sound good, but he starts to get the impression that Alice [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys likes Bad Boys]], and starts trying to describe Bob as such. He gets carried away and quickly becomes a mouthpiece for Bob's insecurities - when Alice berates "Charlie" for being cruel, he goes too far the other way and gives her the impression that the two of them are ''really good'' friends...

Added DiffLines:

** Bob is impersonating one of his close friends; it would raise suspicions if "Charlie" didn't at least defend Bob when insulted.


Added DiffLines:

* '''Played For Drama''': (Continued from first Justified) This is yet one more demonstration of Bob's [[FatalFlaw ego]]. He can't bear to hear himself badmouthed, and when he exposes himself to his friends by constantly trying to compliment someone "Charlie" shouldn't really care about, he lets his friends know exactly how much he doesn't trust them.
