Described as being "the master of the double standard", a "Psycho-Dad" as well a perceived hypocrite who often embarrasses his children, even if he wants what's best for them. Nonetheless, he loves his children, and wants them to have happy futures. Paul dies in the second season after collapsing in the store while buying milk. (Though no real reason is given for why he collapsed, it's believed that it had something to do with his heart as was the reason for John Ritter's death).
