Betty Rhomer (Rebecca Gayheart) died by jumping off a cliff into a river without realizing its height. She was a spunky woman who "can't sit still for very long", and disappeared after following a soul into his great beyond, not long after befriending George. She was known for sometimes using 1920s phrases. She had conversations with George about using aliases in the past. Her trademark was taking a Polaroid photo of the people whose souls she took while saying "Happy Thoughts!", and classifying those people by personality type. In the same way, George later classified Betty as "mysterious and reassuring".
Although Betty’s gravestone shows the year of her death as 1926, this is contradicted in a later episode. In the "Curious George" episode we see Betty robbing her own grave and removing from the finger of her corpse a ring that she presumably wore in life. In the episode "Reaping Havoc", George sees the ring and tells Betty she likes it. Betty replies, "I saw it in the Village in 1927; my boy bought it for me." This suggests that Betty was still alive in 1927, but she could have just been mistaken it being 76 years ago when she said that; or, this implies that she had a semi-serious boyfriend after her death.
In Reaping Havoc (S1:E5) Betty is on a reaping with George at a bar. Through out the episode Betty shows more and more indication that she is considering changing up her life. The man they are there to reap is celebrating his birthday party. While dancing on the bar Betty takes his picture and George touches his foot, successfully soul popping him. Afterwards, walking with his soul and talking his after life appears. It's a cliff, and immediately you see Betty start considering it. Suddenly she asks for George to take her picture. She rushes over to the man and they jump off the cliff together.
George ends up blaming Rube for her disappearance. Though Rube is shown to not know anything when he leaves a sticky note on his door, "What happened to her?"
- "I like you toilet seat, you've got moxy!"
- "Well, it's not the falling - it's the jumping."
- "Falling's easy - you just fall. Jumping requires strength of will."
