Added DiffLines:

* VillainyFreeVillain: Dennis Martino, the principal who (despite very early appearances to the contrary) is not a bad guy. But he is Ed's romantic rival for Carol over a season and a half. He is too serious to ever have fun, making it clear (especially with every other significant character being fun-loving) that Carol would be making a big mistake if she married him. But she comes extremely close to doing so.
