Character descriptionEdit

Buxom Dee, who lives with her mother in a Manhattan apartment, is often jokingly referred to by Marlon as "a big breasted cougar", often laments of not having a man, or a steady boyfriend, although she eventually begins dating a stockbroker named Kenny (Richard Whiten) who works in the building who pursues her, but soon after Dee suspects of cheating, not knowing that Marlon and Shawn takes him to a nightclub to loosen him up, so he could finally have the nerve to approach Dee in the episode "Dee's Dee-lemma". Dee is a very dedicated guard, and even assisted the police in the apprehension of an ex-convict (Norris Young) who looked to silence Marlon, who witnessed him commit a robbery in the episode Can I Get A Witness? as well as the Sweet Tooth Bandit, who leaves candy behind after burglarizing Shawn and Marlon's apartment in the episode The Unusual Suspects.
