The oldest and most rebellious Goldberg kid. Also the trendiest. She loves partying, General Hospital, Whitesnake and off the shoulder shirts. But Erica’s smart as hell, too -- a double threat. She went from mathlete to miniskirts and showed up smoking hot junior year. Erica can also kick your ass. Especially if you’re one of her siblings. She constantly battles with Barry, bickering over the phone line, pushing his buttons and delighting in his drop-of-a-hat emotional meltdowns. Erica may be the most crass Goldberg, but she’s also sweet and protective when it comes to her baby bro, Adam. In a lot of ways, she’s the one who’s been the real parent to him. Erica may manipulate and beat up her younger brothers, but when push comes to shove, she looks out for them.
|Season 1 / Episode 2: - Daddy Daughter Day|
Barry Goldberg: [Murray and Erica have spotted Barry at the roller skating rink] Okay, I know how this looks.
Erica: Then you know it's hilarious, right?
Barry Goldberg: You shut your face!
Barry Goldberg: So now you know. This is where I go on the weekend.
Murray Goldberg: What happened to your rap club?
Barry Goldberg: It was just my cover.
Erica: Okay, you know you're supposed to cover something embarrassing with something *less* embarrassing, right?
Barry Goldberg: Your face is embarrassing! I've been coming here the past two months. Skating helps me blow off steam. You know? Roll it out.
Murray Goldberg: [while Erica laughs] Roll it out.
Barry Goldberg: Go ahead, go ahead, keep laughing. Doesn't bother me. That's the great thing about this place. I get respect.
Murray Goldberg: Yes, from a nine year old who just high-fived you.
Barry Goldberg: He's almost eleven!
