  • Closer to Earth: Compared to the rest of her circle of friends, she is the only one with a high-paying, steady, professional career, and is basically the only thing keeping Maureen and Mark from imploding.
  • Expy: To a lesser extent than the other characters, but she does vaguely parallel Alcindoro from La Bohème.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Though mostly because being with Maureen forces her to be extra paranoid whenever it looks like she may be flirting with someone.
  • Lipstick Lesbian
  • Out of Focus: She is the only one of the eight primary characters who doesn't get her own solo in the film, which was rectified by giving her the solo in "Seasons of Love".
  • The Masochism Tango
  • Twofer Token Minority: Black and a lesbian.
