In "So I Married an Axe Murderer", Harriet (Nancy Travis) cries out for "Ralph!" in her sleep, which Charlie (Mike Myers) correctly attributes to one of her "missing" fiancés.
In trying to cover for herself, Harriet later introduces Charlie to a female friend named Ralph (Jessie Nelson) to ease his mind and convince him that this woman was the subject of her dream.
I'm never sure whether:
- Her name really was Ralph (doesn't seem likely)
- This Ralph character knew of Harriet's prior troubles and was helping her establish a cover story
- The Ralph character simply thought she was playing into some kind of joke (culminated by Charlie dropping the towel)
Can we infer anything about this character's role based on her motivation or intentions?
