CharacterEdit

Gilbert is best friends with Lewis Skolnick and started at Adams College with him. Gilbert is a glass-half-empty kind of person in contrast to Lewis's extremely posative attitiude. Near the end of the film, and in the second movie, these roles reverse. He is nervous about college and is more aware of his nerdy-ness than the others. He is especially gifted with computers and meets his girlfriend, Judy by showing her how they work. He is shown briefly during the second appearance, as he broke his leg playing chess. In the third film, when Lewis got rid of his life as nerd and developed a brand new style, GIlbert ended his friendship with him. However, when Lewis went back to his nerdy image, Gilbert arrived at court to support Lewis on his trial. After the tri-lambs successfully won the case, Lewis and Gilbert became best friends again.
