** Burt is seen as the BlackSheep of his family since he didn't live according to his parents' expectatives, as he got Virginia pregnant when they were teenagers, and they didn't end up as rich as them. His own parents are ''[[KissingCousins third-cousins]]'', and his nephew, Mike, used to live in their house for a while before joining a cult.
