About Martin


Martin, the title character, is a sweetheart deep down, but on the outside a very melodramatic, macho, ornery, blustery, conceited, inconsiderate, selfish, and insulting wise guy. Martin carries himself in a typical urban youth manner, using "Ebonics" and urban mannerisms. His girlfriend turned wife, Gina Waters, has sometimes tried to straighten him out or expostulate with him, but this had rarely worked what with Martin's ornery waywardness. Ever the paper tiger, Martin is not much of a physical fighter despite trying to come off as such. He has a particularly antagonistic relationship with Gina's best friend/co-worker, Pam. Every time Pam's in his presence, Martin antagonizes her, most often with degrading zingers that animalize her. Martin has many commonly used catchphrases on the show, from "Get to steppin" (when ousting guests from his apartment) and "Damn that, Gina!" (dismissing his wife's ideas) to "Damn, Damn, Daaamn!" (disappointment, a reference to Good Times), etc.
