Jody, played by Andrea Covell, was a lonely blind woman that ALF met through a radio talk program. They become good friends, but Jody never finds out that ALF is an alien.
As a cover story, ALF tells Jody that he was briefly married to Cathy Rigby with which he claims to have had twins. A year or so later, Jody came to the Tanner household to keep ALF company and he later joins her in a condo until she gets settled. She also comes over to the Tanner's house during a time when ALF was feeling depressed about being the only Melmacian on Earth.
