46. Marlene

Best-known episode: "The Ex-Girlfriend"
When George is dating a woman who's like "quicksand," Jerry recommends he execute the breakup "like a Band-Aid: one motion, right off!" But soon he finds himself in the same sticky trap, caught in Marlene's "psycho-sexual hold" (the psycho part seems about right) after George sends him in to reclaim some books he'd let her borrow. Before long, Marlene (Tracy Kolis) is leaving Jerry inane messages that fill up his entire answering machine tape in her drawn-out Southern drawl. But she gets the last laugh, breaking up with him after catching his act because "It's just so much fluff." CARYN GANZ
