  • Hypocrite: In the film, he's shocked at seeing Christine total his Camaro, seemingly forgetting the fact that he and his friends trashed Christine, which is what led to Christine trashing his car in revenge.
  • Jerk Jock
  • Oh, Crap!: In the film upon seeing the garage go up in a fireball.
  • Not So Stoic: Any fight in him is deflated after watching one of his friends get crushed and another blown up.
