Kelly Palmer (1998–2001; 2003–2007), Deacon's wife (played by Merrin Dungey): Kelly is Carrie's best friend. She has two children with Deacon. Kelly and Deacon have experienced some serious relationship problems, much more serious than the petty arguments between Doug and Carrie. On one occasion, Deacon mentions being hit in the head with a frying pan. She was absent from the show in 2002 because Merrin Dungey needed to take a break from the series.
