Hank's on-again/off-again girlfriend. She is an executive-level administrator at Hamptons Heritage, the area hospital looked down upon by the elite who have a running gag stating how it is a death trap or "taco stand", because it had saved her arm after a teenage surfing accident. Hank and Jill meet while leaving Boris's party and again when Hank is dealing with "New Parts" Newberg. At the end of the first season opener, Jill and Hank's love and career interests blossom at a clam shack. For the first three episodes Jill drives a well-aged Saab 900 Turbo convertible essentially identical to Hank's car, but replaces it with a new Toyota Prius after her Saab "dies". She describes Hank as "cute", as she says in episode 2 while she is drunk, and again at the end of the episode, when not drunk. She is often worried that her relationship with Hank will turn out like her other relationships, all of which were disasters. In episode 7 she reveals that she gave her ex-husband (Charlie) an ultimatum, either her or his job, he chose his job and left her. It is later revealed she is still legally married to Charlie, because with all his travels she could never locate him to give him the papers to sign. In the last episode of the first season, she was going to tell Hank she wanted to be with him, she sees him with another girl (his patient for the episode) and gets the wrong idea. She later kicks Charlie out of her house at the end of the first season. Her maiden name is McGillicuddy, something she is not fond of. She has three older brothers.
