Millie Strathorn -- Millie is an eccentric old lady that is the owner and prop room master of World Wide Web. She also has a special dislike for Rick.

Lillian Weiss -- Lillian is the director of "Light of our Love" at World Wide Web. She is known to have a temper, and attends anger management class. She was Rick's girlfriend at one point, but broke up with him.

Owen Spayder -- Owen has recently been employed by the Dwayne Powers Agency.

Bess and George -- Bess and George are Nancy's best friends, and are phone friends in this game. They can be called to get hints on puzzles and/or what to do next.

Ned Nickerson -- Ned is Nancy's boyfriend. Like Bess and George, Ned can be called for hints.
