Barry Goldberg (Troy Gentile) may seem like an annoying pest, especially if you’re Lainey Lewis (guest star AJ Michalka). But underneath his trying-too-hard exterior, Barry actually has a heart of gold, which makes him an incredible pick this Valentine’s Day. Here are a few reasons why Barry is the ideal Valentine – we dare you NOT to swoon!
Barry will write a romantic song for you.
Barry expresses his feelings for Lainey through an original rap song he wrote just for her.
Barry doesn’t care where you go on a date – he just wants to be with you.
Barry goes to the hospital for food poisoning, but being on a date – even a pity date – with Lainey makes it the best night of his life.
Barry will continue to chase you, no matter how fast you run from him.
When Erica (Hayley Orrantia) informs Barry that Lainey actually likes him, he chases after her at the Sadie Hawkins Dance to tell her he’s okay with being her secret.
Barry has a great role model: his dad, Murray.
Murray Goldberg (Jeff Garlin) doesn’t always outwardly express his feelings for his wife, Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey). But Murray shows off his softer side when he throws Bev a surprise wedding.
