History Characters / Titus

Go To


Added DiffLines:

* TheDreaded: Ken's punishments were so cruel and humiliating that Titus considered going to jail to be preferable.


* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Papa Titus would do some horrible things simply because it amused him. Stacy Keach, on the other hand, is universally considered to be one of the sweetest people alive.
** There's an outtake where Christopher and Jay Leno keep slapping Zack Ward harder and harder because the studio audience is reacting positively. Then Stacy, who wasn't in the scene, yelled "Hey!" and stepped in, holding Zack protectively while glaring at the audience for goading Titus and Leno into abusing his co-star.

Added DiffLines:

* LastNameBasis: The only people who ever use his first name are Erin and Ken. This includes Titus himself.

%%* SixthRanger

Added DiffLines:

** Also, he takes pride in never having laid a finger on his children as punishment or in anger. He takes in even more pride in the fact that all the damage he wrought is purely psychological.
