The most important fact about Hal is that he is not a genius. In fact, he shows this a little when he claims that if he had one tenth of the accomplishments Robert had, he could work in any math department in the country. He may enjoy less than a tenth of Robert’s ability, but he suffers nothing of his curse. He shows us this while he is with his rock band in the after-hours of the night. Hal and his friends go out for drinks and get laid, showing basic forms of sanity among most people.
Madam, why did you waste your fair skin on a boy and leave the girl so dark? What is a boy doing with all this beauty’” (par. 8)? Even after her brother has committed many crimes and been arrested for apparently being involved in cult violence, her parents are completely devoted to him.

There were many times when Phineas did something wrong and simply talked his way out of it. When the boys skipped dinner, which was not allowed, they were confronted about it. Phineas told a lie about getting ready for the war. These lies came to him naturally, and being outgoing certainly helped being a smooth-talker. On page 18, Gene admitted his envy towards Phineas.
