Steeply’s Father

Mo Cheery

He is the owner of Cheery Oil, the site of Steeply’s father’s occupation. Mo and Steeply’s father are good friends, and they bowl together as part of the Knights of Columbus bowling team. Once Steeply’s father spirals into his M*A*S*H* obsession, he doesn’t fire Steeply’s father and instead insists that he seek medical and professional help (to which Steeply’s mother is confused because she believes nothing is wrong).


Maury Linville

He is the actor who plays Major Burns on the show M*A*S*H, to which Steeply’s father writes detailed war letters (to Major Burns, not the actor).
