Ben Smith Quotes
Ben arrived by bus in Philadelphia to meet with "Desert Rose", Sweet Dee's online alias. When he arrived, he was suffering from an injured leg and was in a wheelchair. This prompted Dee to deny that she was Desert Rose, and claim instead that she was Desert Rose's friend.
Later, Dee tried to set up her friend, Artemis, with Ben. To Dee's surprise, Ben stood and greeted Artemis. Dee then kicked out Artemis and clarified that she was, in fact, Desert Rose. ("The Gang Wrestles for the Troops")
Later, Dee told the gang that she had been dating Ben. They saw him waiting in a car in the summer heat for her, without cracking the windows. Dennis and Mac told her that Ben was probably running The D.E.N.N.I.S. System on her. She grew suspicious and wanted to be independent, so she left him during a picnic and got lost in the woods. The next day at a carnival she tried to make him jealous by flirting with a carny. He left her for Caylee because she "is a mean person." ("The D.E.N.N.I.S. System")
Ben was a guest on Frank and Dee's podcast. ("Mac's Big Break")
Later, Ben was rounded up as one of the potential fathers for Dee's baby. ("Dee Gives Birth")

- Ben's last name is not spoken in dialogue but his last name was shown on his uniform ("SMITH | U.S. ARMY").
- Since Frank gave Ben a pair of jean shorts as a little "thank you"-gift, he's constantly wearing those
shorts on - that's became into a running joke throughout the series.
- Ben likes to have his face painted. ("The D.E.N.N.I.S. System")
- Ben is a very soft and vulnerable person. You can forced him to get laid with you for just berating him:
you might improvise, either you can use some approved names - like, "army jerk" or "camo turkey".
("Dee Gives Birth")
- Ben: Dee, I don't like you.
- Dee: Well, how is that possible?!
- Ben: You're a mean person.

- Z (to smiling Ben): Man... I used to have some jean shorts like that too. I slept in them shits, man!.. Eventually, I blew the crotch out of them things. But you CAN'T wear 'em every day and expect for 'em to hold up!.. That was some nice-ass denim too. I miss them shorts... But you... you GOTTA take 'em off every now and then. You gotta take 'em off, son!..
