Finally the Montgomery's are separeted! Bob's cowboy is such a funny contrast to George's. Good thing he stuck with the polo.

Plus, Robert Montgomery is the one who's first name is not same as the one he was born with while George Montgomery is the one who's last name is not the same as the one he was born with. Does that help? ;)

Technically, Bob was born with the name - just in the middle, but I hear ya!
