Well, he is the essence of good buddy and I think we all need at least one Pike in our lifes. Maybe it's a good thing he isn't sexy, it makes him a better friend.
What are you talking about, Muriel ? Pike is sexy as hell - everyone who makes me laugh has a lot of sex appeal in my eyes. I'd take him over someone with a brooding attitude any day. (Only my view, though, your mileage may vary .)
