Specifically, he tells Stan that if he comes back to Spokane, then he'll have a great view of the Puget Sound. Spokane is too far away from the coast to have a view of the Puget Sound, something anyone who actually lived there would know.
- I Lied: He actually wanted to take Stan back to experiment with him, NOT to take him back to his family.
- Mad Scientist
- Sadistic Choice: While not as extreme as other examples, he gives Stan one of this in the season finale: He can either come back with him to meet his family and leave the one he currently has, or stay with them, but probably never see his real family again.
- And he does it again, only worse: Stan can either come back with him to get experimented on, or he'll experiment on Stan's puppies instead
- The Dreaded: To Stan. This little piece of dialogue should be enough proof:
- Would Hurt A Puppy: Not really. Back when Stan was a puppy, he tried to get him to talk to a microphone, but that was it.
- But then he proves he can when he threatens to experiment on Stan's puppies
