Goober

roland goubert

One of the stoners confronts Jerry, calls him squareboy, and tells him he's missing out on life. Emile is willing to help Archie in whatever he needs because he believes that Archie has a picture of him masturbating in the bathroom at school; even when Archie admits that there is no picture Emile continues helping him because he is not sure whether to believe him or not. He walks out of the store to his bus stop where he stares at the stoners across the street. His father is a pharmacist who lives a humdrum life. In the book when Jerry was refusing to sell the chocolates, Goober felt many feelings that Jerry was feeling. He only cars about himself. Jerry, Emile, Archie, and almost the whole student body of Trinity come out to the school grounds at night, for a boxing match between Emile and Jerry.

When Goober waited for Jerry one day at the schools entrance and pulled him aside to ask, Jeez, Jerry, what did you do it for? They don't actually know each other, but Jerry sure likes her.
