** To be fair, he ended up working at Klinko's, whereas Stan works for the CIA, which is probably meant to evoke ServiceSectorStereotypes.

[[folder:Neighbors]]
!!! Greg Corbin and Terry Bates
-> Homosexual life partners and co-anchors at W-ANG-TV, and neighbors to the Smiths. Francine was a surrogate mother for their daughter Liberty Belle, or "Libby." They're voiced by Creator/SethMacFarlane and Mike Barker respectively.

* AllGaysLoveTheatre: At least, Terry does.
* BadassGay: Both Terry and Greg at times, such as when [[spoiler: Terry punches Stan in the face for kidnapping their daughter.]]
* TheBear: Greg slightly. Compared to Terry he has more visible body hair and he's pudgier.
--> '''Greg:''' I'm gay fat. I'm straight thin, but I'm gay fat.
* BetaCouple: Arguably the most prominent relationship on the show after Stan and Francine (and maybe Jeff and Hayley).
* CampGay: Conspicuously so.
* CarpetOfVirility: Greg.
* DanceBattler: They fight like characters out of ''Theatre/WestSideStory''.
* TheDandy
* DeadpanSnarker: Both of them.
* DemotedToExtra: Both were hit by this in Season 11 as a result of Mike Barker leaving the series.
* {{Foil}}: To Stan and Francine. While Stan and Francine are an incredibly unstable couple, who abuse each other and are both incredibly shallow, Greg and Terry have more normal issues that don't tend to exceed mild bickering.
* GayConservative: Greg's a Log Cabin Republican.
* HappilyMarried: Although not technically married, one of the sweetest couples in animation history, with few arguments and a multitude of tender moments between them.
* HaveIMentionedIAmGay: Aside from a few CampGay mannerisms that are sparse and tend to get played for humour, you can tell they're gay because they're always holding hands and telling people how gay they are.
* HotScoop
* KentBrockmanNews: They tend to squabble and unload their dirty laundry while at work -- or did, in the early episodes. The later ones, not so much.
* ParentalAbandonment: Terry suffered this from his father Tank after Terry revealed to him that he's homosexual and gave him the choice of accepting that or leaving.
* PapaWolf: After Stan kidnapped their baby, the two managed to rouse up support from numerous gay truckers to stop Stan. After Stan returned Liberty (and the kids he stole from a lesbian couple) Stan expected to be forgiven because he learned a lesson. Terry decked him.
-->'''Stan''': [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness That wasn't campy at all!]]
* PutOnABus: With Mike Barker leaving the show, this may be Terry's fate. In Greg's first appearance of the TBS episodes, Terry was nowhere to be seen.
** TheBusCameBack: In "Morning Mimosa" he appears in the end with Greg but has no lines.
* ThoseTwoGuys
* TheUnfavourite: Terry. His father abandons him after discovering his sexuality and in "Rapture's Delight", he's left behind while Greg is raptured, because apparently God ''does'' like Gays... but only if they're tops.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Terry is apparently freaked out by vaginas. He's seen Francine's twice and both times he's moaned about it afterwards. Greg asks why he even bothers looking when he knows she has one, and Terry responds "I don't trust it. I refuse to turn my back on it." It makes you wonder how they deal with changing their daughter's diapers.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Greg and Terry have been known to spend a numerous amount of time with Stan and Francine, but a couple of instances have proven that the two don't really care much for the Smiths.
** Some episodes imply that they at least like Francine, having her be their surrogate, and later having the baby play around with her, though throughout the episode they were chasing after Stan who stole their daughter [[spoiler: Terry slugs him in the end.]]
--> '''Francine:''' (after talking to them on the phone) It turns out they hate us.
--> '''Stan:''' (unfazed) I can see that.

!!!Linda Memari
-> An Iranian-American neighbor and friend of Francine. Voiced by Megyn Price.

* BiTheWay / LipstickLesbian: Made out with Francine in "Not Particularly Desperate Housewives" as a way of saying a goodbye, despite being married to a man. [[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Miraculously, this saves Francine from getting killed by the Lady Bugs,]] ]] and Francine thanks Linda, thinking the kiss was a plan to save her. Linda, clearly disappointed, just goes along with that and claims she needed to get back home to her husbands that "she loves". Overall, it's suggested that Linda's not truly attracted to her husband and is a closeted lesbian, and it's revealed that her husband is aware of her preferences.
** "Rough Trade", has her making her bust more noticeable by unbuttoning her shirt when she went to go borrow some sugar from Francine, which really was an attempt to hit on her. However, Linda quickly covers up when Stan comes to the door instead.
*** In the same episode, when Linda starts gushing over Francine, her husband mutters "Oh boy, HereWeGoAgain...can I at least watch this time?"
* DemotedToExtra: Along with her husband, she hasn't spoken since Season 4's "Roy Rogers McFreely". This may be justified as she didn't have much of a character beyond crushing on Francine.
** The commentary for "Not Particularly Desperate Housewives" reveals that her affections for Francine makes her a complicated character to write for which likely was the reasoning behind her being dropped from the supporting cast.

!!! Hiko Yoshida
-> Toshi and Akiko's mother.

* ActionMom: Goes toe-to-toe with Francine in "Spelling Bee My Baby". Beforehand in the same episode, she "ninja-darts" Hayley in the neck, and knocks out Klaus with striking a pressure point, when breaking into the Smith house to save Akiko after Francine kidnaps her.
* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: When finding out where Akiko's held captive.
---> "Give me the aggress."
* BladeOnAStick: Starts off with a spear in her fight with Francine.
* BringIt: Calls out Francine after she foils her kidnapping plan.
* {{Dominatrix}}: Is into S&M, shown in "The Missing Kink".
* EducationMama: Best shown in "Spelling Bee My Baby", where her determination to get her children into a good college conjures a rivalry with Francine and a wedge between the friendship/growing romance of Steve and Akiko.
* FormerlyFat: In earlier episodes, she was practically unseen before being revealed to be fat and rather old. The recent episodes portray her as much younger and slimmer.
* Jerkass: A mild case, but it's still evident.
* MamaBear: Send the entire ''Yakuza'' and Yoshi with three bloodhounds on a mission to find Akiko before the spelling bee, though this is more due to her EducationMama tendencies and less about loving her daughter. Once she finds out her the Smith address (from Akiko registering into her Nintendo account, humorously considering Hiko forbids her from playing), she breaks in and save her. Once she arrives at the spelling bee, she's ready to fight Francine.
* NotSoAboveItAll: In "Spelling Bee My Baby", she releases Akiko from her glass cage by what presumed to be a secret martial-arts technique, but breaks the cage with her vocals by humming a series of onomatopoeias.
* OhCrap: As she boasts about her ethnicity before her fight with Francine and how it gives her an advantage (under her assumption that because Francine's white, she knows nothing about martial arts), but then Francine's parents show up for Steve's spelling bee.
---> '''Hiko:''' Wait, you're Chinese?
---> '''Francine:''' Hiiyoooo!
---> (Hiko's smirk literally ''vanishes'' at this point.)
* OnlySaneWoman: She understandably questions why Yoshi speaks Japanese in "Spelling Bee My Baby", when even ''she'' doesn't speak Japanese, and only in complete English.
* PetTheDog: Saving Akiko.
* TheRival: To Francine.

!!!Buckle
-> A Disney imagineer turned MountainMan turned HenpeckedHusband. Voiced by Matt McKenna.

* {{Badass}}
** BadassBeard
* BigDamnHeroes: Has been this twice to the Smiths, and both of those times he was saving them from Stan's stupidity.
* TheBigGuy
* ButtMonkey
* GadgeteerGenius: He used to work for Disney. See the treehouse he built and the amazing haunted house he put together for Halloween as proof of his abilities. As Francine put it in regards to the haunted house:
-->'''Francine''': (''disturbed'') I actually don't know how I got out. The front hallway spiraled into a black hole and the weather kept changing and ''I was a child again''.
* HenpeckedHusband
* MountainMan
* OutOfFocus: Hasn't appeared since Season 7's "Hurricane!".
* StalkerWithACrush: He developed an unhealthy obsession with Hayley for a little while due to his extreme loneliness. Stan fixed it by setting him up with Shari.
* StoutStrength: As big as he is wide.

!!!Sharri Rothberg
-> A Jewish-American princess and annoying wife of Buckle. Voiced by Lisa Edelstein.

* ItsPronouncedTropay: The first syllable in her name rhymes with "car", not "air"
* JewishAmericanPrincess
* JewishComplaining
* {{Jerkass}}: She complains to Buckle a lot. Though the fact that she was raised by a rich dad may have something to do with it. She was not used to not getting what she wants so it probably inflated her ego.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Though she admitted to herself that she loves Buckle.
* JewsLoveToArgue
* WantingIsBetterThanHaving: Desperately wants to be married, does almost nothing but complain to her husband even though she admits to herself she loves him.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In "Hurricane!", she and Buckle try to save the Smiths from the flood only to be washed away by it. While Buckle shows up again later in the episode, Sharri doesn't leaving her current fate unknown.

!!!Father Donovan
-> The local pastor. Voiced by Martin Mull.

* DirtyOldMan: Keeps hitting on other women, especially towards Francine.
* FatBastard
* {{Hypocrite}}: Is actually implied to be an atheist as he wasn't ascended to heaven at which point he remarks, "Turns out there is a God"
* {{Jerkass}}

[[folder: Smith Extended Family]]

* TheAtoner: After [[spoiler:all the terrible things he's done to his family, along with [[Main/ItMakesSenseInContext trapping Minstrel Krampus, which allowed Santa to make children more spoiled and bratty over the years]], he becomes the next Krampus and can go around the world teaching naughty children how to behave, and make the world a better place.]]

* AsianRudeness
* DevilsAdvocate: Despite her dislike with Stan, in ''Spring Break Up'', she told Francine that Stan was right to leave her because she stopped laughing at his jokes and listening to his stories. Māma explained that the basis of a good marriage is taking the time to laugh at your spouses jokes and listen to their stories even if you've heard them a million times, because it shows you care and it makes them happy.
* NoNameGiven / BilingualBonus: Māma is simply the Chinese word for 'mother'.
* ObnoxiousInLaws

-> Francineís adopted sister. She remained unseen until "Now and Gwen", where she's revealed to be a criminal who uses Francine to cover for her. Voiced by UmaThurman

* AsianAirhead: [[InformedFlaw According to Bàba]], she's an idiot who "needs all the help she can get". Aside from lighting a cigarette in a gas-soaked room and failing math in high school, she's actually quite intelligent, cunning, and manipulative.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Every time she's mentioned, Stan has to go on about how hot she is, to Francine's annoyance.
* [[ConMan Con Woman]]: She sold fake cellphones to the elderly and was holding a sweatshop making fake cellphones in the Smiths' home.
* InformedFlaw: Her father thinks she's an idiot, but that appears to be because she's a Chinese girl who's bad at math.
-->'''Stan:''' "It's heartbreaking when kids don't conform to cultural stereotypes."
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: She easily convinces Francine to let her do anything, knowing she will bail her out. [[spoiler:She does this because Francine burned the school while she smoked in the lab room with tons of flammable elements and she took the blame. But she still does manipulate her until Hayley convinces her to leave, but not before she tries to frame Francine by burning down the school.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's older than Francine, but like her sister, Gwen could pass for a girl in her twenties.
* {{Retcon}}: Prior to 'Now and Gwen' dialogue made Gwen sound like a harmless BrainlessBeauty. When she finally appeared in the flesh she turned out to be beautiful, but not particularly dumb at all and an actual criminal.
* TheUnseen: Until Now and Gwen, she is only mentioned. This is because she's a convicted felon.

* AssholeVictim
* AxCrazy
* EvilCounterpart: To Steve. Though he starts out the same as him in every way, Stan's authoritative parenting style drove him insane over the course of 3 months and he ended up a calculating, cat-killing psychopath. He also attempted to murder the original Steve, but was defeated by Stan.

[[folder:Neighbors]]
!!! Greg Corbin and Terry Bates
-> Homosexual life partners and co-anchors at W-ANG-TV, and neighbors to the Smiths. Francine was a surrogate mother for their daughter Liberty Belle, or "Libby." They're voiced by Creator/SethMacFarlane and Mike Barker respectively.

* AllGaysLoveTheatre: At least, Terry does.
* BadassGay: Both Terry and Greg at times, such as when [[spoiler: Terry punches Stan in the face for kidnapping their daughter.]]
* TheBear: Greg slightly. Compared to Terry he has more visible body hair and he's pudgier.
--> '''Greg:''' I'm gay fat. I'm straight thin, but I'm gay fat.
* BetaCouple: Arguably the most prominent relationship on the show after Stan and Francine (and maybe Jeff and Hayley).
* CampGay: Conspicuously so.
* CarpetOfVirility: Greg.
* DanceBattler: They fight like characters out of ''Theatre/WestSideStory''.
* TheDandy
* DeadpanSnarker: Both of them.
* DemotedToExtra: Both were hit by this in Season 11 as a result of Mike Barker leaving the series.
* {{Foil}}: To Stan and Francine. While Stan and Francine are an incredibly unstable couple, who abuse each other and are both incredibly shallow, Greg and Terry have more normal issues that don't tend to exceed mild bickering.
* GayConservative: Greg's a Log Cabin Republican.
* HappilyMarried: Although not technically married, one of the sweetest couples in animation history, with few arguments and a multitude of tender moments between them.
* HaveIMentionedIAmGay: Aside from a few CampGay mannerisms that are sparse and tend to get played for humour, you can tell they're gay because they're always holding hands and telling people how gay they are.
* HotScoop
* KentBrockmanNews: They tend to squabble and unload their dirty laundry while at work -- or did, in the early episodes. The later ones, not so much.
* ParentalAbandonment: Terry suffered this from his father Tank after Terry revealed to him that he's homosexual and gave him the choice of accepting that or leaving.
* PapaWolf: After Stan kidnapped their baby, the two managed to rouse up support from numerous gay truckers to stop Stan. After Stan returned Liberty (and the kids he stole from a lesbian couple) Stan expected to be forgiven because he learned a lesson. Terry decked him.
-->'''Stan''': [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness That wasn't campy at all!]]
* PutOnABus: With Mike Barker leaving the show, this may be Terry's fate. In Greg's first appearance of the TBS episodes, Terry was nowhere to be seen.
** TheBusCameBack: In "Morning Mimosa" he appears in the end with Greg but has no lines.
* ThoseTwoGuys
* TheUnfavourite: Terry. His father abandons him after discovering his sexuality and in "Rapture's Delight", he's left behind while Greg is raptured, because apparently God ''does'' like Gays... but only if they're tops.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Terry is apparently freaked out by vaginas. He's seen Francine's twice and both times he's moaned about it afterwards. Greg asks why he even bothers looking when he knows she has one, and Terry responds "I don't trust it. I refuse to turn my back on it." It makes you wonder how they deal with changing their daughter's diapers.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Greg and Terry have been known to spend a numerous amount of time with Stan and Francine, but a couple of instances have proven that the two don't really care much for the Smiths.
** Some episodes imply that they at least like Francine, having her be their surrogate, and later having the baby play around with her, though throughout the episode they were chasing after Stan who stole their daughter [[spoiler: Terry slugs him in the end.]]
--> '''Francine:''' (after talking to them on the phone) It turns out they hate us.
--> '''Stan:''' (unfazed) I can see that.

!!!Linda Memari
-> An Iranian-American neighbor and friend of Francine. Voiced by Megyn Price.

* BiTheWay / LipstickLesbian: Made out with Francine in "Not Particularly Desperate Housewives" as a way of saying a goodbye, despite being married to a man. [[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Miraculously, this saves Francine from getting killed by the Lady Bugs,]] ]] and Francine thanks Linda, thinking the kiss was a plan to save her. Linda, clearly disappointed, just goes along with that and claims she needed to get back home to her husbands that "she loves". Overall, it's suggested that Linda's not truly attracted to her husband and is a closeted lesbian, and it's revealed that her husband is aware of her preferences.
** "Rough Trade", has her making her bust more noticeable by unbuttoning her shirt when she went to go borrow some sugar from Francine, which really was an attempt to hit on her. However, Linda quickly covers up when Stan comes to the door instead.
*** In the same episode, when Linda starts gushing over Francine, her husband mutters "Oh boy, HereWeGoAgain...can I at least watch this time?"
* DemotedToExtra: Along with her husband, she hasn't spoken since Season 4's "Roy Rogers McFreely". This may be justified as she didn't have much of a character beyond crushing on Francine.
** The commentary for "Not Particularly Desperate Housewives" reveals that her affections for Francine makes her a complicated character to write for which likely was the reasoning behind her being dropped from the supporting cast.

!!! Hiko Yoshida
-> Toshi and Akiko's mother.

* ActionMom: Goes toe-to-toe with Francine in "Spelling Bee My Baby". Beforehand in the same episode, she "ninja-darts" Hayley in the neck, and knocks out Klaus with striking a pressure point, when breaking into the Smith house to save Akiko after Francine kidnaps her.
* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: When finding out where Akiko's held captive.
---> "Give me the aggress."
* BladeOnAStick: Starts off with a spear in her fight with Francine.
* BringIt: Calls out Francine after she foils her kidnapping plan.
* {{Dominatrix}}: Is into S&M, shown in "The Missing Kink".
* EducationMama: Best shown in "Spelling Bee My Baby", where her determination to get her children into a good college conjures a rivalry with Francine and a wedge between the friendship/growing romance of Steve and Akiko.
* FormerlyFat: In earlier episodes, she was practically unseen before being revealed to be fat and rather old. The recent episodes portray her as much younger and slimmer.
* Jerkass: A mild case, but it's still evident.
* MamaBear: Send the entire ''Yakuza'' and Yoshi with three bloodhounds on a mission to find Akiko before the spelling bee, though this is more due to her EducationMama tendencies and less about loving her daughter. Once she finds out her the Smith address (from Akiko registering into her Nintendo account, humorously considering Hiko forbids her from playing), she breaks in and save her. Once she arrives at the spelling bee, she's ready to fight Francine.
* NotSoAboveItAll: In "Spelling Bee My Baby", she releases Akiko from her glass cage by what presumed to be a secret martial-arts technique, but breaks the cage with her vocals by humming a series of onomatopoeias.
* OhCrap: As she boasts about her ethnicity before her fight with Francine and how it gives her an advantage (under her assumption that because Francine's white, she knows nothing about martial arts), but then Francine's parents show up for Steve's spelling bee.
---> '''Hiko:''' Wait, you're Chinese?
---> '''Francine:''' Hiiyoooo!
---> (Hiko's smirk literally ''vanishes'' at this point.)
* OnlySaneWoman: She understandably questions why Yoshi speaks Japanese in "Spelling Bee My Baby", when even ''she'' doesn't speak Japanese, and only in complete English.
* PetTheDog: Saving Akiko.
* TheRival: To Francine.
