Even though he was very protective of his sisters and he didn't like that anyone might have hurt them, he was also on a lot of drugs. When Maddy said 'Rick the Dick', Thomas burst out laughing so hard it actually hurt his head. And yet he didn't stop. He continued to giggle, though he managed to get out, "Rick the dick! It's like a Dr Seuss villain!"

"Hahhahaa Rick the- Ahem. No, sorry. Sorry. Drugs. Yes. No more dicks. Rick or otherwise," he said, patting her arm.
Maddy complimented his son and Thomas beamed. "Sometimes I forget I made him," he said with a nod. "He used to sleep on my chest. If he did that now, it would be awkward."
