Other citizens in the town of Elmo included.

  • Derek Richardson as Celia's son Patrick O'Bachelorton who runs the town inn. He really hates the way his mother is so clingy. Celia arrested Patrick once for pulling a reckless stunt. While in jail, Patrick refused to speak to Celia, even after Celia baked him cookies shaped in the message of "I Love You" (The letter "I", the shape of a heart, and the letter "U"). Eventually, they resolved their differences, but the mother son dynamic was always at the root of something or another in their lives, like the time Celia tried to be patient as she taught Patrick how to drive. She insisted he follow the rules. He just wanted to drive. Patrick's last name of O'Bachelorton is compilation of the "O" from Annie "O'Donnell (Patrick's fiancée), his original name "BACHELOR", and "TON" from his biological father Buzz Washington (John Amos), an African American pilot who owns one of the only planes that flies people in and out of Elmo. Buzz also has a gay son named George Washington.
