    About Mel

    Mel is one of George's bosses, the other being Jack Powers, his brother. He calls George numerous nicknames, but respects him as the manager, and still accomplishes his duties as the co-boss, along with Jack. His son Zack Powers is an uncontrolled teen who is attracted by Carmen and snuck off with her to San Francisco. He is married to a woman who Carmen describes as a bitter, old drunk who neglects Zack and ignores Mel. Jack and Mel have few conflicts involving each other, except for a fight at Thirsty's Drinking Bar, as well as common arguments through conversation.
