I never said I wanted him to be silly. Everyone is obviously going to be affected by the harsh life they're now living, so it would be natural for their personalities to manifest a bit differently. My suggestion is that since Bobby was always the nice guy (RE: boring), maybe now he is a bit cynical and covers it up with some dark and disturbed humor. I'm not saying he needs to be Jim Carey all of a sudden.

So if they were to make him a little darker and a bit funny, it would show some nice character growth and be more like the comics... two birds with one stone.
