Their father, Bully, pats them on the shoulder and laughs along with them, proud that one day, his sons will be just like him. William Golding's novel Lord of the Flies answers the question asked by many school officials and parents alike: When, if ever, does teasing and goading cross the line into bullying? Through the misfortunate adventures of Ralph, Jack, Piggy, and the other boys on the island, it is revealed that teasing and goading turns into bullying the moment the victim starts feeling powerless. According to Tara L. Kuther's article "Understanding Bullying", the bully and victim relationship blooms from an "imbalance of power" where the victim finds it hard to "defend him-or herself" (Understanding Bullying 51). Once the Victim feels belittled, the line separating teasing and bullying becomes crossed.

There's Chuck Gieg (Scott Wolf), the squeaky clean boy who only wants to please his demanding father and who becomes the narrator for much of the story (the film is based on the real Chuck Gieg's memoirs), Tod (Balthazar Getty) a tough kid with some hidden troubles, Frank (Jeremy Sisto) a boy with some problems of his own who has to deal with a truly unsavoury wealthy father, and Gil (Ryan Phillipe), a wimpy sort of character who's afraid of heights and can't climb the rigging. Lending a helping hand on board the ship are Sheldon's wife Alice (Caroline Goodall), who doubles as teacher and doctor, and the Shakespeare quoting English teacher McCrea played by John Savage. Setting sail from Connecticut, the disparate group of boys will learn the ways of the sea and hopefully some discipline along the way. Skipper Sheldon is a wise man who will often remind the boys about the art and dangers of sailing and how the ship is not a toy and only with teamwork will everyone succeed. "Where we go one, we go all" is the catchcry of the Albatross and it's a message that is instilled painfully into the young crew.
Life would be a lot easier if phonies was themselves instead of acting like someone they are not. There are some examples of phonies in the book. Mr. Spencer is a phony because he pretends to be concerned about Holden but beats him up by reading his essay. Pencey Prep is a phony because it pretends it can mold students into clear-thinking young men. The film Holden watches in New York is a phony because everyone laughs stupidly at the end when the dog has puppies.

Piggy is one of the first characters introduced in the novel, and he is described as "the fat boy", which encourages the reader to like him and sympathize towards him, even if nobody else does. Piggy proves to have a great deal of importance as his knowledge and common sense is profound compared to the other boys among him. For example, he is the first to recognize that their chances of rescue are very slim, he knows very well that the beast isn't real, and his ideas of survival surpass the other boy’s plans. Throughout the novel, Piggy remains wise, but this voice of wisdom is ignored. It is clear only in the book that Piggy is intellectually superior and physically inferior.
