Cerie is Liz's attractive, laid back personal assistant, who usually wears revealing outfits to work, much to the delight of the writers' room. She is also the youngest member on the show's staff but has yet to divulge her age. Much of the humor associated with her character comes from the things she says to and assumes about Liz; she is always under the delusion that Liz was once married. The show portrays this insensitivity as coming from her naïveté rather than any genuine malice. She does not appear to respect her boss; on one occasion she politely declines Liz's request to get her coffee, instead preferring to lounge on the couch.
