Joey and Parker are brothers and they have a very close bond. They spend a lot of time together and often hang out. They both enjoy playing video games together.

The two will often work with each other to help each other. Park is scared of thunder and will often crawl into Joey's bed. In Vive-La-Rooney Parker accepts the challenge of building a composting robot in 1 day. When he makes the robot it's designed in Joey's likeness calling it the MunchBot. Joey is honored and Parker smiles seeing how it makes Joey happy. However the robot doesn't work right and Parker doesn't have enough time to make adjustments. Joey then dresses up as the robot and goes to the fair in replacement. After Alex challenges "MunchBot" to eat some disgusting food Parker backs out as he can't allowed Joey to eat it. When he asked why Joey did that he said "Because, man you were going to quit that's not like you." Park tells him that he just wanted to show everyone that he's the best. Joey replied "Look, I know how tough it's been for me. I cant imagine trying to go through it at your age but you don't have to conquer this place in your first semester.
