Ugh.  I don't think I can buy Reg's inheriting this.  His father was 
_taken_ by Laurel, but there's no culpability in that.

it, Joanna could be viewed as a pale imitation of Laurel, couldn't 
she?  Cool (downright icy, come to think of it), beautiful, wants 
things just the way she's arranged them to suit her - no untidyness.
