Sush with my girls!!!! [sic]
Lovin' the single life!
Penny is the social glue of these friends. Always quick to offer advice to either Alex or Dave about the ups and downs of dating as she is well-versed in the single dating culture of the new decade. She works for a public relations firm and prides herself on being the most stylish person in the office. Penny and Max have been best friends since college and provide each other a shoulder to lean on.
PENNY'S HAPPY ENDING:
I just want to settle down with a nice guy, I hate the single life.
