Added DiffLines:

* FantasyForbiddingFather: Herb Copperbottom's father had him converted into a dishwasher out of fear that his son would waste his life by pursuing his musical interests. This had the unfortunate effect of trapping him in a dead end career and [[CripplingOverspecialization giving him no other options if he ever lost his job.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SnakeOilSalesman: When we first see the Chop Shop it's revealed that the "upgrades" Ratchet is selling is just refined scrap metal being sold at inflated prices.
