DavePlayed by Albert Tsai
The 10-year-old son of Ken and Allison, Dave is a quiet, intelligent kid who is more likely to talk to you about California’s drought or German Chancellor Angela Merkel than basketball or Angry Birds. He’s at the age where he still delights in both of his parents, unlike his teenage sister Molly, who often doesn’t want to have anything to do with them. Dave looks up to Molly, who he is learning key manipulation skills from, some of which he turns on her to get what he wants. He’s left-handed, loves peaceful silences, and is afraid of sandwiches.
