A young, dedicated father. Doing his exercise in a bare room, he quizzes his daughter on her English homework. "He, she, it - the 'S' goes with". When he does his push-ups, the girl lies on top of him to make it harder. Later, Dad has to work in his ski-tight, bright yellow spandex pants. But Mom mustn't know what he does.
