Patrice is the girlfriend of George Costanza in Season Three’s "The Truth". She is an accountant who does some artistic work on the side. George breaks up with her due to the fact that she is annoyingly pretentious, which includes wrongly pronouncing "papier-maché" to sound more French. When George tells her the real reason for breaking up with her, she commits herself to a mental hospital. However after he finds out, George visits her to apologize and also to get back Jerry's tax papers which he gave to her so she could sort out Jerry's audit, which she sadly did not and instead threw out the papers in a fit of depression. After apologizing, she and George briefly got back together and went to go see amateur poetry down by the docks at the end of the episode. Patrice was portrayed by Valerie Mahaffey.
