Valerie Bates is a one-off character. She is portrayed by actress Tina Foley. In "Holy," she leaves her newborn son Johnnie in the care of his grandfather Mr Harrison whilst she tends to a family emergency. Unbeknownst to her, Mr Harrison abandons Johnnie on Richie and Eddie's doorstep whilst he watches Goldfinger. Valerie returns just in time to find Mr Harrison "showing off" Johnnie to the neighbours, and, realising little Johnnie is hungry, proceeds to disrobe and breastfeed him, much to the excitement of Richie and Eddie.
