Merv has a hard life. He is always worrying about Boonie when he disappears. There could be a positive in this though, because he has got very close to Boonie`s teacher Shiela at all those parent/teacher interviews.
Merv is Boonie's father, and his wife passed away at an unknown time. Merv is now trying to date Shiela the school teacher.
- "G'day Ty!"
- "Boonie's been a read handful lately, it's unbelievable."
- "Thanks for always finding Boonie for me. But if you happen to find Shiela's phone number -- uh -- nevermind."
- "I wonder if.. Shiela would like to go to the pictures with me?"
