Role in the series
In some episodes, Gerald is very superstitious and makes up ridiculous assumptions, because in "True or Consequences", where he tells Bella's sister, Beth that he never "bombs the toilet" before a big game of roller derby because it's bad luck. This is also prominent in "Business Disaster", where he doesn't allow his teammate, Margo, to use the bathroom, because of the same belief.
- Many people mistake him for a lizard due to his appearance.
