* ChivalrousPervert: The main male (adult) characters are, well, ''[[AllMenArePerverts guys]]'', but they do have standards.

When the crew found out, Roger jammed the phone to keep it from getting onto the Web while Doc tracked the guy down and "[[TheEasyWayOrTheHardWay persuaded]]" him and his friend to delete it.
