Gruff but loveable, hot-tempered but never scary, Murray Goldberg has a different style of being a Dad. Calling you a "moron", for example, is just how he parents. But if you understand "Murray Speak" you know it comes from a place of love. Murray is constantly and hilariously struggling to stay calm. He's triggered by a pin drop. He embodies the role of "dad" with no shame. The minute he gets home, his pants come off and he struts around in tightie-whities. Murray had big dreams of playing football. He even went to Penn State on a scholarship, which didn't pan out. Now Murray runs the "Ottoman Empire", the family furniture business, where, if he's not lounging on the merchandise, he's peddling it. When the work day is over, Murray comes home weary and ready to plop down in front of the TV for some Magnum PI. Some might say he's hen-pecked by Beverly, but Murray is fine with their relationship. He is utterly dependent on Beverly; he literally can't even make a sandwich without her input.
