Lillian Seymour: Attractive, exceedingly well-dressed woman. Lillian is a top-flight designer.

Jenny: Young country girl dressed in gaudy, inexpensive cotton with hair in pigtails or a ponytail. Loud, but the epitome of innocence.

Randolph: cheap crook and proud of it, trying to look like TV’s idea of a hoodlum with a pencil-thin moustache, slicked-down hair.

Helen O'Toole: A very efficient real estate saleswoman, perhaps a trifle too folksy and straight-laced at times but she means well.

Vernon Cookley: Middle-aged New Englander who has never seen any more of the country than ten miles outside of Birchville.

Philip Smith: A man of average physique with amnesia who joins in on the evening of diamond hunting, just who is he, anyway? (age 30-40)
