Dad Influence

Ms. Dullridge

Trivia















Were We Ever?

Picture Day Photographer

The Picture Day Photographer was seen doing his job, taking school photos on the same day the Good Hair Crew stages a protest on the dress code by wearing convict uniforms. This causes Cyrus to be rather stiff at his sitting as he intended to wear a selection from the "James Bond Collection" instead of the prison garb. However, he soon warmed up under Buffy's teasing, and eventually enjoyed himself, and even intruded on Buffy's photo time as well. Ultimately, the school scheduled another photo day. The Picture Day Photographer was played by David Brown.












Space Otters Photographer

The Space Otters Photographer appeared to be in a hurry, as he seemed to resent being saddled with chronicling all the fringe elements of Jefferson Middle School for the yearbook. His attitude annoyed Jonah, but he was more concerned that Andi refused to wear her uniform shirt and chose not to be in the Space Otters photo. The Space Otters Photographer was played by Tito Livas.















Best Surprise Ever

Kip

Kip was a student at Grant High and apparently a member of the football and baseball teams. Once, while at The Spoon Diner with a group of friends and Amber and Jonah, he belittled Ultimate Frisbee as not a true sport as real sports like football or baseball did not require an extra word to try to convince people how great they were. Jonah took the jab, but still insisted Ultimate Frisbee was a valid activity. Kip was played by CJ Strong.

















Season 2

Chinese New Year

Mei

Mei is the sister of Celia Mack. The two siblings are very competitive with each other. In Chinese New Year, Celia scrambles to prepare for Mei's arrival and hangs up a clock on the wall. Some time ago, Mei gave it to Celia. However, Celia hates it so much that she only hangs it up once a year when Mei visits. When Mei comes over for Chinese New Year, she criticizes Celia about many things, such as the "year of the rooster tilapia disaster." Mei also brags about her daughter and son-in-law, who are in a castle in Tuscany. Mei is very proud of the clock she gave Celia, saying it was hand-carved out of the very finest black forest wood. When the truth is finally revealed that Celia hates the clock, Mei leaves in a huff. Mei was played by Freda Foh Shen.














Ronald

Ronald is Andi's second cousin. He visits Celia and Ham's house for Chinese New Year. He is obsessed with magic tricks, and tries some out on Andi and Jonah. One of these tricks is pulling a shark-shaped gummy out of Jonah's ear. Later, he is shown pulling an infinity handkerchief out of his mouth, which displeases Mei. Ronald was played by Alan Ko.
















Friends Like These

Coach Purcell

Mama

Millie

Millie is a neighbor of the Driscolls.  When she needs school credit for community service, Buffy decides to see if Millie needs anything done for her, as she is an older lady.  Millie is cynical of Buffy's offer and the two discover they share similar temperaments.  Millie states that all she really wants is someone to play cards with, as  she claims all her family and friends are "long gone."   Perhaps feeling a little sorry for the older person, Buffy agrees to play cards.  Some hours later, Buffy has yet to taste victory, and Millie is not above constantly needling Buffy with that fact.  Buffy states her determination not to leave until she wins one game.  However, then she receives a text about Cyrus being in the emergency room.  When Millie reminds Buffy of her pledge, she reveals that her friends and family are not dead, but have been driven away by her unrelenting competitive streak.  Buffy realizes that she and Millie are quite alike.  Before leaving to be with Cyrus, Buffy tells Millie she will be back.  Millie was played by Juliet Mills.

When questioned by Andi about the differences between the tests, the jaded teacher simply states he is seven years from retirement, and to just do the work. Mr. Plimpton was played by Bob Bedore.















Coach Jim

Coach Jim is a P.E. teacher at Jefferson Middle School.  On the day the student body was divided into "A" and "B" groups, he decided his Gym class would play Dodgeball, however, the "B" side would all have to wear blindfolds.  This caused the Coach to note, "There's no crying in Dodgeball."   He was later seen participating in the game, while not actively throwing at the visually impaired "B" students, he did provide balls for the "A" side to hurl at the hapless targets.  Coach Jim was played by Jack Diamond.

Mr. Coleman

Mr. Coleman is a Math teacher at Jefferson Midddle School. Recognizing Buffy as one of his best students, he asks her to tutor a classmate in Algebra.

We Were Never

Jefferson Basketball Player #3

Jefferson Basketball Player #3 was first seen in the Jefferson Middle School cafeteria, dropping a chocolate muffin tossed to him by TJ Kippen, who strangely, opts to stomp on the pastry rather than simply picking it up.  Weeks later, after Buffy calls a timeout during the game against the Knights, clearly tired of the conflict between Buffy and TJ, just tells the team captain to give her the ball, to which Buffy thanks him, as TJ finally agrees.  Sometime later, after Buffy has led the then TJ-less team to victory over the Raptors, he high fives the newly dubbed, "Slayer."  He later signs a basketball for Jonah with the rest of the team to put in Buffy's time capsule.  Jefferson Basketball Player #3 was played by Clinton Brandt.
