Allowing his pride to step in, Odysseus fails to acknowledge the help in which he received from Poseidon during the time of the war. This angered Poseidon, god of the sea and causes Odysseus to sail rampaging waters on the way back to his homeland of Ithaca.

After Bones’s death, Jim and his mother searched the mysterious chest that many have been longing for and found Flint’s map along with other valuable as well as not so valuable items of Billy Bones’s belongings.

At one point in the Odyssey, the hero makes the decision to enter the cave of a cyclops despite his crews objections. His pride causes him to ignore his shipmates and it ends up getting him into so much trouble that it makes the cyclops' father, the god of the sea, furious. Since most of Odysseus's journey is made by the sea, this gave the sea god a chance to cause even more trouble for the hero and his crew. Kevin also showed his little streak of pride which gets him into trouble too. When Gary David relayed Gary's message to Kevin about being careful driving the truck over a rut, Kevin responds by hitting the gas as soon as they approached it.
