* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Jim will forever condemn everyone and everything as a swizz, too expensive, or just plain stupid. But when he knows he needs to say something (usually when it's his own fault), he well quietly reassure said character that he does indeed love them, and is there for Denise at her wedding and child's birth, and for Barbara at her mother's funeral. Although in the recent Christmas specials he seems to have moved firmly into JerkAss territory, saying cruel and spiteful things seemingly because the show demands it.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Jim is a more subtle example of this, especially towards Anthony. It is also heavily implied through dialogue that Denise is incredibly negligent to her kids.


Added DiffLines:

** Denise is also prone this, only being marginally better than Jim. They naturally exchange insults over ''[[NotSoDifferent each other's]]'' selfish, idle and obnoxious habits on a regular basis.
