As Seen In: "5G" (Season 1, Episode 5)
But Pete believes in his bear tale, and asks Trudy to go see her ex, Charlie Fiddich. Fiddich works in publishing, and is still in love with Trudy (obvs).
This is one of the first real indications of Trudy's executive realness. She's a housewife during a time unkind to women, but she's also savvy (the extent of which will only be revealed much later). She's willing to ride for her husband, because she sees what Pete needs to be a success. And if Pete is a success, she will be too.
She recognizes the rules of this world and will play by them, fiercely. Thus, Trudy Campbell, Business Housewife.
