|Behind the scenes|
Patty is introduced when she and her friend, Mary, are set up as dates with Fez and Hyde. Patty is a radical of the '70s, railing against the government and unfair practices in society, which allures Hyde into switching dates with Fez. But Patty isn't impressed with Hyde's 'rebelling-without-a-cause', stating that she wants to go to college, educate herself and work for the world from within the system, and rejects him.
Patty appears again when she becomes involved with Fez. Although Fez made out with Mary, Patty and Fez start dating for a while. They break up off-screen.
- Patty and Mary are portrayed by Lindsay Sloane and Melissa Joan Hart, respectively, who starred as best friends on ABC (later WB) comedy series Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.
