* '''Averted''': Even though Newton's family won the lottery, they do not flaunt their wealth.



* '''Deconstructed''': Newton postures as an attempt to hide his insecurity about the major upheavals of the life he once knew, and because his family always taught him that rich folks were ''always'' sharp-tongued and snobbish.
** Newton is painfully aware that his family isn't accepted by the 'old money' community, despite their efforts to fit in and belong. His tacky, attention-grabbing behavior is his way of lashing out at them; in essence, he's saying "Hey, you don't like me anyway, but screw you! I'm not going anywhere!"

** Newton's family are fairly plain and squeeze every penny, despite their wealth. They are unassuming and fairly modest in their dress, rarely splurging on anything for themselves.

** Newton's family are fairly plain and squeeze every penny, despite their wealth. They are unassuming and fairly modest in their dress, rarely splurging on anything for themselves. It was this mentality that allowed them to become rich in the first place.
