About David Brookes
As Jeffrey and Anne Brookes' little seven-year-old son, The ever-inquisitive David is always asking questions like "Where do babies come from?" Mr. Roper and David seem to warm up to each other, oftentimes, which his dad doesn't approve of, as David, who loves to get candy from people, always seem to get treats from the Ropers which his dad Jeffrey also doesn't approve of. Like his dad, he is an avid comic book reader and collector; both are avid fans of the DC Comics superhero, Aquaman.
At times, in his ever-honest childlike naivete, David often serves a foil to his father Jeffrey's often duplicitous dishonesty. One instance is when Jeffrey, who did not want to rent the vacant next door condo to the Ropers; David innocently reveals the condo isn't sold to someone else, which thwarted an obvious effort by Brookes to keep the Ropers from renting it!
