"My name's Dewey Oxburger. My friends call me Ox. You might have noticed that, uh, I've got a slight weight problem. I went to this doctor and he told me I swallow a lot of aggression - along with a lot of pizzas!"
Ox was played by the late great John Candy who brought a tremendous amount of levity and heart to the film.
