Identify this character from the professional-style description (Redux)

This idea was so popular the last time I posted it that I’m trying it again. Fictional characters only, as might be evaluated by a psychiatrist or a psychologist.

  1. Sex, Female. Age, 43. This youthful woman, a child of rape, is employed by a police department in, ironically, a division that investigates sex crimes. She is able to sympathize with victims and seems a natural as a therapist. However, she sometimes makes promises to victims, promises that she or the Department cannot honor. Recommend discussing with her superior.
  2. Sex, Male; Age, 33. This man is debonair and affable, but also presents as a devious and calculating liar and thief. He claims to be in the insurance business, and admits to keeping company with another man’s wife. Shall contact state Attorney General and Insurance Regulatory Commission.
  3. Sex, Male; Age, 58. This is an honorably-discharged military officer, with experience in three wars. In our interview he spoke with sometimes sardonic wit, though sadly about the man he succeeded in his last military assignment. He also showed a background in medicine and surgery befitting a military doctor. He said he maintains a semi-retirement practice as a civilian.
  4. Sex, Female, Age, 16. Attends high school. Soft-spoken, quiet manner, rather colorless personality. Showed me a picture of herself with her boyfriend, a muscular blond fellow, who she said becomes angry if other boys even talk to her. Recommend counseling for this boy and his parents.
  5. Sex, Male; Age unknown. Very large for his kind. Garrulous character living in farmyard. Very loud voice, given to interminable, gratuitous bragging. Chortles about battles of wits with barnyard dog; mentions small barnyard denizen he kept referring to as “square-britches,” and another small creature who seems unable to identify subject’s species. May begin speech therapy, if only to quiet subject down.
  1. Olivia Benson, from Law & Order, SVU?
  2. Don Draper from Mad Men
  3. Colonel Potter from MASH*?
    4 - Don’t know.
  4. Lenny from “Of Mice and Men”?
  1. Midge from Archie comics. Recommend counseling… seriously? Nowadays Moose would end up expelled and then in jail pretty fast.

5 is Foghorn Leghorn. Agree with others on 1, 3, and 4. No clue on 2.

There’s only one interesting guy I can think of who was in insurance: Walter “Double Indemnity” Neff, what with the other guy’s wife and all that.

Y’know, I’ve been waiting for that to happen for years…:mad:

That’s the one. I also saw The Caine Mutiny, and I wonder how many more times Fred MacMurray played bad buys than good guys.

Moved MPSIMS --> Cafe Society.

Oh, Walter Neff wasn’t a bad guy in any sense. Look at what he did to save that young man from being shot. He was just susceptible to ankle bracelets.

Some more:

  1. Sex, Male; Age, about 45. Subject speaks with an Italian accent, but I am not satisfied that it is authentic. Seems to be something of a hustler, and uses rather absurd reasoning. Carried pack of cards, invited me to play gin rummy after session. Reads racing form. When I went out to meet him for interview, he was playing the piano in the atrium. Recommend introduction to Gamblers Anonymous.
  2. Sex, Male; age, 48. Self-deprecating; made wisecracks about being something of a loser. Made little mention of his wife. Ravenous appetite, obvious from his overweight appearance. Mentioned beer several times. Recommernd introduction to Alcoholics Anonymous.
  3. Sex, Female; age, about 35. Speaks in a rather scratchy voice. Married with three children. Always wears strapless dress, pearl necklace, and bouffant. Husband something of a buffoon ; disobedient son and precocious daughter, along with baby daughter.
  4. Sex, Male; Age, 20. Employed by newspaper. mentioned heroic friend, and reporters he works with. Subject is callow and guileless but loved by his co-workers and boss. Sometimes gets into dangerous situations but is always rescued.
  1. No idea.
  2. NORM!
  3. I can’t remember her name, but the wife from Married with Children.
  4. Jimmy Olsen?

8 is Marge Simpson.

6 sounds like a Chico Marx character.

You last three guys are right: No. 8 is Marge Simpson.
Here’s No. 10; I ran out of time earlier.

  1. Sex, Female; Age, 37.
    Is employed as a waitress; claimed to have trained as a singer, settled in present location strictly by accident. Has teenage son, well adjusted; she is widowed. Showed her out-of-state “Class A” drivers license, allowing her to drive three- or four-axle vehicles. Described her job, with usual characters, including her grumpy but softhearted boss, and her two colleagues, a brassy woman from Texas and a young scatterbrain. Have urged subject to switch to performing career as soon as feasible.


Here are some more:

  1. Sex: Male; Age: 55. Professional in film industry. Career spoiled in recent years by alcoholism. Assisted by peculiar friends and skeptical movie mogul in effort to recover.

  3. Sex, Female; Age, 16. Petite but shapely. Wears glasses. Likeable girl. Keeps company with three other kids, and a strange dog, a Great Dane; they travel in a large, brightly-painted van. During interview, on October 30, a Halloween mobie was playing on a TV in the adjoining room; sometimes the sounds was loud enough for subject and me to hear. Sometimes I was distracted; she never was, suggesting she was familiar with such things.
  4. Sex, Female; Age, 38. Immigrant from Germany; employed by State Governor’s staff as a cook. Speaks with Bavarian accent. Engages in give-and-take insult match with budget director; properly courteous with governor; adores governor’s teenage daughter.

In course of background investigation I contacted various people who claim he gains unusual strength from eating (raw) canned vegetable. This will require personal observation to confirm.
