On rare occasions, though, he and Peter share a friendship and work together, normally with a common goal. He loves Lois but sometimes does not listen to her and tries to boss her around. He is married to Barbara Pewterschmidt, with whom he had three children – Lois, Carol, and Patrick. In the episode "No Chris Left Behind," he is a member of the Skull and Bones and also slightly admires Chris. It is revealed in "Welcome Back, Carter" that he is an Allied officer.
