->'''First appearance:''' [[Recap/BojackHorsemanS1E04ZoesAndZeldas "Zoes And Zeldas"]]\\
'''Official Debut:''' "Love And/Or Marriage"

Todd's girlfriend who, after being ignored too many times, abandoned him. In Season 3 she returns and gets back
together in the background, talking and gossiping about anything that pops into their heads.with Todd when they reunite at a wedding rehearsal. They found "Cabracadabra", a taxi service with women drivers, later on.



* {{Adorkable}}: Self-important, yet with enough innocence that she'll gush about whatever idea she comes up with, especially when it involves her crush Todd. Also, don't mention her about any of her {{Dark Secret}}s; she'll get flustered and lie badly.
* AlcoholInducedIdiocy: [[spoiler:Emily's fling with [=BoJack=] started with them meeting at the hotel bar where the wedding rehearsal Emily's friend ensued. They briefly talk and she orders a whiskey. [[GilliganCut Cut to them in bed together]].]]
* AscendedExtra: Starting as a background character in season 1, Emily has a larger part in Todd's storyline in season 3.
* BareYourMidriff: Two instances.
** Her original wardrobe, as shown in [[Recap/BojackHorsemanS1E04ZoesAndZeldas "Zoes And Zeldas"]] and "The Bojack Horseman Show", involved a small white t-shirt stopping midways through the torso.
** Her dress in "Love And/Or Marriage" exposes her belly button by an aperture in the middle of it.
* TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler:She'll reappear in season 5, which doesn't bode well for Todd and Yolanda's relationship. Well, that and Yolanda's mother....]]
* CannotKeepASecret: And if she attempts it, she'll be as conspicuous as possible. [[spoiler:Ask [=BoJack=]. Or Todd even.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: During the 2007 flashback, Emily wasn't convinced that Todd couldn't just not like anyone. But the season 3 finale has her fully accept Todd coming out as asexual.
* EarlyBirdCameo: In [[https://www.reddit.com/r/BoJackHorseman/comments/4ubcnp/emiles_first_appearance_s1e4/ "Zoes and Zeldas".]] She has a much larger role in season 3.
* FlippingTheBird: After getting fed up with Todd's blatant disregard of her, she finally flips him off and goes on her own way.
* HenpeckedHusband: GenderInverted, courtesy of Todd and his playing addiction and her failures at trying to get his attention. [[spoiler:After her return, she briefly sinks in this again after she fails to get Todd to notice her as a woman.]]
* IncompatibleOrientation: Emily and Todd care about each other very much, but she has very strong sexual needs while he's asexual.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Emily really cares about Todd, which is why she tells him [=BoJack=] "hasn't been a good friend to him" [[spoiler:which eventually pushes Todd to finally leave that toxic friendship]], is supportive of his asexuality and his relationship with [[spoiler:Yolanda]] (even if the latter doesn't work out in the long run), and [[spoiler:creates an asexual dating website for him]].
* NiceGirl: Her desperate need for sex aside, she is really sweet, supportive, and nice who genuinely cares about Todd and immediately accepts him as who he is when he [[spoiler: finds he may be asexual]].
* NewOldFlame: To Todd. Emily used to be his girlfriend and their encounter sets them to be a potential couple, [[spoiler:until it's {{subverted|Trope}} when Todd's reticence in sealing the deal leads him to come out as asexual.]]
* NotListeningToMeAreYou: Well, of course not. Doesn't stop her from trying like hell.
* OstentatiousSecret: {{Deconstructed|Trope}}. While they slip right through Todd, Emily's attempts to cover up [[spoiler:her workout session with [=BoJack=]]] involve being as suspicious as possible, stuttering and avoiding questions about betrayals. People suspect something, sure, but not the ones she's hiding the secret from. [[spoiler:Gets worse after she comes clean about it: Todd still ''doesn't'' know what happened, but for her to get so upset, it must have been something big. She doesn't say it, which makes Todd's imagination to run wild. This leads to a tragic falling out between the friends.]]
* PlayingTheVictimCard: [[PoorCommunicationKills Unwittingly]]. [[spoiler:Emily willingly slept with [=BoJack=] after failing to get through Todd, but through a mixture of guilt, responsibility and friendship started to feel the burden of keeping quiet about it especially when the Abracadabra business took off and she was forced to see him every day. Eventually, Emily couldn't handle it and vaguely hinted Todd what had happened while acknowledging she and [=BoJack=] "[[MathematiciansAnswer hadn't been good friends to him]]". The ambiguousness of her expressions made it seem like he took advantage of her in Todd's eyes, although he was willing to give it the benefit of doubt. [[SubvertedTrope It's rendered moot anyway]] since what implodes the relationship between them is [=BoJack=] [[NeverMyFault justifying himself and failing to admit his part of the guilt]].]]
* RageBreakingPoint: After time and time again trying to get him to notice her and to get up and stop playing with the game, she finally realizes that Todd is ''not'' gonna do any of those things, so she gives him the finger, gets her stuff and cuts the ties.
* RelationshipRevolvingDoor: Emily has this kind of relationship with Todd, dating back to 2007 when his irresponsibility drives her away [[spoiler:and restarted in 2015 when they reencounter in a restaurant and connect again. Then, it's "off" again when Emily leaves Cabracadabra and "on" when they bury the hatchet and start over as JustFriends. They briefly toy with the idea of getting back together against in Season 5, but agree they're BetterAsFriends.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Does this after getting fed up with Todd's irresponsibility. [[spoiler:And she does it again to Todd in season 3 after the guilt gets the better out of her. So much that she even suggests Todd should cut her off from the company's earnings. [[AllLovingHero He's having none of it]].]]
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan:
** Even though she left Todd because of his addiction to a game, she really appreciates how sweet and thoughtful he is.
** Come Season 4, [[spoiler: the IncompatibleOrientation with Todd's asexuality has caused them to drift apart, as she's only seen in the first episode, and her parting words (aside from sending Todd a gift of a "Drone Throne") were that she ''does'' need sexual gratification in a relationship to be happy, which Todd was unable to provide]].
* SoBadItsGood: InUniverse. Her opinion on [=BoJack=]'s failed 2007 show.
* SuddenlyVoiced: In season 3, after a silent cameo in season 1.
* TheVoiceless: In her first appearance, Emily doesn't utter a single word.
* WetBlanketWife: The girlfriend variation. {{Justified|Trope}}, since playing ''Decapathon'' really is affecting Todd's life. His refusal to listen to any kind of advice leads to her leaving.

* RelationshipRevolvingDoor: Emily has this kind of relationship with Todd, dating back to 2007 when his irresponsibility drives her away [[spoiler:and restarted in 2015 when they reencounter in a restaurant and connect again. Then, it's "off" again when Emily leaves Cabracadabra and "on" when they bury the hatchet and start over as JustFriends. They briefly toy with the idea of getting back together against in Season 5, but agree they're BetterAsFriends.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Does this after getting fed up with Todd's irresponsibility. [[spoiler:And she does it again to Todd in season 3 after the guilt gets the better out of her. So much that she even suggests Todd should cut her off from the company's earnings. [[AllLovingHero He's having none of it]].]]
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan:
** Even though she left Todd because of his addiction to a game, she really appreciates how sweet and thoughtful he is.
** Come Season 4, [[spoiler: the IncompatibleOrientation with Todd's asexuality has caused them to drift apart, as she's only seen in the first episode, and her parting words (aside from sending Todd a gift of a "Drone Throne") were that she ''does'' need sexual gratification in a relationship to be happy, which Todd was unable to provide]].
* SoBadItsGood: InUniverse. Her opinion on [=BoJack=]'s failed 2007 show.
* SuddenlyVoiced: In season 3, after a silent cameo in season 1.
* TheVoiceless: In her first appearance, Emily doesn't utter a single word.
* WetBlanketWife: The girlfriend variation. {{Justified|Trope}}, since playing ''Decapathon'' really is affecting Todd's life. His refusal to listen to any kind of advice leads to her leaving.
