Added DiffLines:

* MeanBoss: Subverted with Roger Meyers. Although Meyers is an asshole to most of his writers, that's because the scripts they're producing for him are ''garbage''. He's much nicer to writers who actually do their jobs and come up with scripts worth producing, like Grampa (allegedly).
