In the 9JKL episode ‘Stalker Status’, Josh (Mark Feuerstein) discovers that his crazy stalker Patty in Los Angeles has followed him to New York. She’s working at his favorite coffee shop. Josh warns doorman Nick (Matt Murray) not to let her into the building. But then Josh is surprised and hurt to learn that Patty isn’t in town for him. She’s obsessed with an up-and-coming actor. Josh’s mother Judy (Linda Lavin) tries to win back the attention of Patty.
