Rory Hennessy' (1990-present) (Portrayed by Martin Spanjers) is the youngest of the Hennessy family and the little brother of Bridget and Kerry.

Martin Spanjers as Rory Hennessy


He is referred to as "the boy" by his father, Paul. He constantly tattles on his sisters, pleasure out of it, as per his remark when he had stirred the pot to his liking: "This is just like my birthday!" Usually he waits until his sisters already did whatever it was, then tattled just to see his father lose it as well. But he is still his father's favorite, being the boy.

He is also involved in money-making schemes along with C.J. and is very immature at times as the youngest out of the three children. He can be seen playing video games in the living room and shows signs of always wanting a monkey, which he once had by trading some of his father's baseball trading cards; the monkey was later traded for a guitar, which was short-lived as Rory annoyed the family with it.

He also delights in showing his friends the private aspects of his popular sister Bridget's life, mentioning once that his friends looted through Bridget's underwear drawer.

Life after Paul's death[]

Rory was hit hard by Paul's death and ended up punching a hole in his wall out of anger, cutting his hand. He covered for it saying he burnt it taking a casserole out of the oven. After he entered high school, Rory seemed to mature greatly and C.J. became the wisecracker of the family. However, Rory still had his moments.
