Meryl is a woman that Jerry dated in "The Wife"; in a sense she is the title character. In the episode Jerry refers to Meryl as his wife mainly so she is able to be a part of his dry cleaning discount. They break up when Jerry "cheats" on Meryl by letting another woman use his dry cleaning discount. Their parting words are "We'll always have...pancakes." Meryl was played by Courteney Cox.
