You'll notice I didn't mention Anthony's boss, working-class hero and childhood buddy of Mikerobe, Gordon. He's now more or less part of John's world and therefore as close to living a reality-based life as anyone in Foobonia can.
The good advice these junior-grade Foobs give can be boiled down to two principles:
1) Stay the course - You're doing super!
2) There's no place like (the Patterson) home.
This sort of puzzles me, because I certainly wouldn't wanna live next to them.
