Christy and Chef Rudy.jpg
Relationship: Co-Worker
Christy and Rudy are colleagues at The Rustic Fig, Rudy is the chef and she is a waitress. They have a business relationship, but sometimes personal. He tends to get inappropriate and tells her personal things that she doesn't need to know. Rudy used to forget her name during the first and second season and once called her Meredith in "Corned Beef and Handcuffs". In the seventh season he ends up being court ordered to go to ten A.A. meetings, which she obliges to take him to, but decides to stop because he doesn't appreciate or care going to them. He then doesn't come into work and she goes to his house to convince him – and succeeds – to come in and he tells her that she ruined drinking for him.

In Season 1's "Pilot" Christy states that the guy at the table she was serving said something horrible to her when she was telling him about the salmon. Chef Rudy asks what was wrong with the salmon, and she says the horrible comment wasn't about the salmon, but about her, to which Chef Rudy responds, "oh, that's fine," and carries on. Christy picks up a plate of Risotto and states, "I mean who are we kidding, it's a big steaming pile of gooey rice!", Chef Rudy and everyone else working in the restaurant turns around to look at her in shock. Chef Rudy asks "What did you say?!", in a demeaning tone, and Christy fires back with "Get over yourself Rudy! I saw you in McDonald's going down on a Big Mac!" Rudy fires back to Christy, and everyone who is now looking at him, " was a Filet-O-Fish.".

In "A Pee Stick and an Asian Raccoon", Rudy sees that Christy is upset and asks her what is wrong. She tells him that her teenage daughter is pregnant and he asks her for a description of Violet.

In "A Small Nervous Meltdown and a Misplaced Fork", Christy and Gabriel are fighting over their "adultery" relationship.

In "Loathing and Tube Socks", Christy has just been insulted by a customer and walks into the kitchen angry. Gabriel says, "you look really pretty today, did you change your hair?", she picks up his food, replies with "Bite me!" and walks out.

Later on in the episode, Christy tells Rudy that she is aware she has been a bitch recently, but she is working on being a better person. Rudy states that he appreciates the settlement and tells her good luck with it, and as Christy walks away, Rudy asks Paul if he's thinking what he's thinking. Paul agrees with him once again using a celery stick. Christy walks up to Gabriel, breaks up with him and walks out, and Paul and Rudy use facial expressions to mock his sadness.

In "Abstinence and Pudding", Christy is working in the restaurant and asks Chef Rudy, "since when do you bake pies?", to which he replies that the pastry chef threw a hissy fit and quit because she and Rudy weren't having sex anymore. Gabriel tells Rudy they need to hire a new pastry chef and states that they have to be a man, and Rudy quips that that won't stop him from having sex with them, according to his newfound bisexuality, adding "You zig, I zag.".

In "Figgy Pudding and the Rapture", Christy makes adjustments to her work uniform so she can get more tips, but it doesn't work and she comes into the kitchen frustrated. Rudy comments that he likes the new adjustment, so Christy takes out tube socks from her bra and throws them at him telling him that he can have them.

He then walks over to her and asks what's wrong suggesting that he thinks she's back to pole dancing, she comments that she would actually be making more money that way but isn't currently doing that.

In "Push-Down Coffee and a Working Turn Signal", it is revealed that Baxter works for a car dealership. Christy goes to him to buy a car, and Baxter asks her sarcastically if she knows that cars cost money. Christy responds by saying that she has the money needed, and Baxter invites her into his office, where Christy describes what kind of car she wants. Baxter then asks her where she got the money, but before she is able to answer, he asks her if she is gambling again. She tells him she's not, and he moves on to ask her if her boyfriend gave her the money. Christy replies with, "Hey, that's offensive. I got the money from my Mom's boyfriend. My new guy offered, and I said no." Baxter says that she should have accepted the offer and that she should use it before she loses it. Christy replies with "So you're saying I should drain everything I can out of my boyfriend before I become an old hag?", to which Baxter affirms with "Tick-tock".
Patrick, Christy's boyfriend, and Bonnie aren't comfortable with the way she got the car (Bonnie was unaware of the loan from Adam) so Christy takes the car back. Later on in the episode, Baxter buys the car for her stating that "Look, we always focus on the bad stuff you did to me, but I did a lot of bad things to you. I would disappear for days on end, I smoked your weed, I slept with your friends." Christy questions him "Friends? I thought it was one?" Baxter shoots back with "One friend six times, six friends one time," and continues, "The point is over the years, I've watched you make up for all the bad stuff you did wrong, and I found it really inspiring. So, this is me making an amendment to you.


Christy and Gabriel.jpg

Relationship: ex-Co-Worker with Benefits
Gabriel and Christy are co-workers at The Rustic Fig. Gabriel and Christy start off as friends, but soon get closer. They never have any romantic relationship, they just have a sexual relationship. Gabriel cheats on his wife with Christy for a major amount of episodes and since Christy still doesn't really have her life together she goes through with it, but becomes more scared after meeting his wife, although they both still carry on. Gabriel and Christy no longer see each other.

In Season 1, we first meet Gabriel when he tries to tell Christy that he has been told that one of his waitresses is having a nervous breakdown. She defends herself by asking if it's Jennifer. Gabriel tells Christy that she should take the rest of the night off, and Christy tells him that she can't afford to do that as she has Violet and Roscoe to look after. Gabriel tells her "Not a problem, grab a couple steaks, head home and feed 'em!". Christy then tells him he doesn't understand. Stating "The guy at table four said something really horrible to me, when I was telling him about the Salmon." Chef Rudy overhears this and asks what's wrong with the Salmon. Christy tells him that the insult wasn't about the Salmon, but to her, and he told her that she was a good waitress. To which Gabriel and Chef Rudy disagree with and so does Christy - her taking this as an insult, because she knows she's not a good waitress. Christy and Gabriel then talk about her dreams of what she wanted to do when she was in high school while she carries on working. Christy grabs a plate to serve and insults the food on the plate, also insulting the entire room, as they all look at her in shock. Chef Rudy asks "What did you say?" Christy then defends her opinion saying "Get over yourself Rudy. I saw you at McDonald's going down on a Big Mac." as Christy walks out, Rudy defends himself to everyone else, stating that it was actually a Filet-O-Fish. Christy carries on waitressing as she serves Jon Cryer, who is playing himself.



Christy and Shirley meet.jpg

Christy constantly tries to have Bonnie and Shirley connect with each other, but it doesn't seem like Bonnie can ever forgive her for leaving her on her own. Christy keeps a relationship with her. After Shirley's death, Bonnie is more reluctant to go through Shirley's things and sort them out than Christy is, because Bonnie still wants nothing to do with her. As a result of Christy dragging Bonnie along, they find thousands of dollars and a new relative that they didn't know about.

Well, they were a couple doors down, our actual neighbors were making some kind of porn.
