    Whatever it is, he seems to be earning enough to afford a nifty house with a garden. He could have easily bought Sam a Porsche.

    And that sir is one of the many questions you will never get an answer to as long as Bay is in charge. Unless somehow Ehren is a bigger man than we think and can make Bay understand the need for deeper substance. Who are we kidding here, this is the guy that wrote the Devy-balls into the sequel...

    Waveride I have to agree. For us to learn what Ron's occupation is, would mean Bay would have to develop a character somewhat, which it seems, he is completely incapable of doing.

    ...Which was somewhat amusing considering he told Sam he's the first Witwicky to go to College.

    Ho Ho! You're all being so silly. The answer is obvious. Mrs. Witwicky wears the pants in that household. Now, the question is, what does she do for a living? hmm...

    Oh yes, because Ron Witwicky's dayjob is crucial to the plot of giant robots invading the world. Stating his job does nothing to give the movie deeper substance.

    No offense, I think they could do a MUCH better job with the movie scripts so far (and IMO ROTF was pisspoor), but there is no real reason to reveal his job. He plays the main hero's father, whose only role in the movie is to be..well..his father, for the scenes that require Sam to interact with his father for whatever reason (movie1: to show a teenager trying to do stuff his parents aren't allowed to know, movie 2: parents get kidnapped to give the Cons an edge against the boy)

    Why would we remotely care what his job was, other than hoping it will be fanwank and they will reveal he worked on an oil rig?

    Bay-bashing, you're doing it wrong.

    He works the bar at Chippendales. He used to dance, but an old recurring football injury forced him out early. Dancing in thongs is his passion, so even after he stepped down...well, he did whatever he could to stay around it.

    You there, you stole my opinion.

    Although, I don't intend to hold any expectations for the third movie, and considering what I've seen from the first two, I imagine some huge PAPA WITWICKY AT WORK subplot with many a zany antic where Bumblebee shows up for hijinx would somehow be considered crucial by Bay. Hell, it could be the site where whatever random Earth-centric Cybertronian artifact is discovered. Keep the million dollar formula flowing, baby. Why not, you know, as long as there's a few seconds of metal fists clanging together near the end it will still obtain many a cry of "best movie ever!"

    I prefer to assume she's a prostitute at night, earning all the money by turning tricks near the Mission City Tunnel.

    May not be true, but the movies become a bit more interesting ;)

    No no, she accidentally goes hooking after a spiked-punch binge at Sam and Mikaela's wedding rehearsal! Aha! It would be hilarious and relevant to the story!

    She turned to a life on the kerbs after her 'weed' binge at Sam's uni. She now has a fetish for white lads with dreads.
