    1. This gets highlighted when his daughter accidentally got run over, and John never forgave himself for the incident.
  4. He's very creative, as shown when coming up with multiple unique motor fuel names, and won with Sleight O' Hand, the Magic Cleaner
  5. He goes through some character development through the film, going from a desperate man obsessed with standing out among the crowd, to a loving husband and father willing to accept himself as one of many among the crowd.

Bad Qualities

  1. His hopes of trying to stand out among the crowd, will often get the best of him. An instance, of this is shown when he turned down a charity fond, just so he could find a more valuable job.
