While not unkind, Gordy is unique at Third Street and doesn't actually like T.J. that much. However he also admits he doesn't actually have a 'reason' to not like T.J, claiming he doesn't need one much to T.J's annoyance. This dislike held up even after T.J took him on a trip around the school when they were supposed to be in detention which Gordy admitted to enjoying.
