(Played by Marcia Strassman) Artisan, ex-hippie and
a lover of solitude and open spaces, Nancy Sterngood has capitalized on
Perfection's dubious notoriety by creating ceramic Graboid hood ornaments,
Shrieker ashtrays, Burt Gummer action figures, and AssBlaster paperweights, all
of which she markets online with Jodi Chang's help.
Nancy's the one person in town not struggling to make ends meet. At peace with herself, she quotes the Dalai Lama, meditates and uses crystal energy to keep El Blanco away from her small house/studio. She generally acts as a calming influence by exercising a wise, trusting, Earth Mother yin to balance Burt's suspicious, over-reactive yang. Both Jodi and Rosalita Sanchez look up to Nancy for her calm reassurance and because she's tough enough to stand up to Burt.
Besides the ever-present Graboid problem, Nancy's only other challenge is how to meet a nice, "fully actualized" guy when she lives in the middle of nowhere surrounded by man-eating predators.
