Ethan cancelled a camping trip with his girlfriend Summer Smith to instead spend the night with Tricia, a move that both Summer and her brother, Morty Smith, chose to attribute to her large breasts. This caused Summer to become insecure about her own breast size. When the Smith family interrupted their camping trip, Tricia was emotionally touched by seeing Beth comfort Summer, despite their larger size and inside-out appearance. She quickly left Ethan to call her mother.
She is also friends with Jessica and talked with her about her breakup with Brad, expressing her desire for warm "penis-in-foreskin" love, which hints that she may have a foreskin fetish. She later exhibits similar interest in urination. In spite of her initial rivalry, Trisha is showing to be friends with Summer. She is also shown to friends with Nancy though doesn’t hesitate to criticize her but has offered to change her appearance.
While the snakes were attempting to take over Earth, Tricia was in Summer's room criticizing Nancy's clothing choice and weight while dancing with Summer the rhythm of the snake jazz.

She also seems to be religious, as she is seen with a cross necklace around her neck.
Ironically, despite this, she is evidently a sexual deviant, and appears to be interested in urophilia (sexual arousal by being urinated on) as she mentions enjoying it at the end of "Rest and Ricklaxation". She also didn’t hesitate to tell Summer that she wanted to sleep with her father after taking note of him. Tricia seems to be willing to be friends with nearly anyone as long as they have popularity or good looks.
