Episode: Ten Sessions
Spears played Abby, the receptionist at Stella’s dermatology clinic. While Abby was very into Ted, Ted was very into Stella, but Abby was somewhat ditzy and sensitive, so it made things awkward when she dropped hints towards Ted but he generally brushed them off. She makes a second appearance in the episode “Everything Must Go.”
