"Annoying" Arlene Roca is a classmate of Tripp, who has a major, yet somewhat creepy crush on him. She used to have a cat named Hip Hop and has a turtle named Jazz. She is of Spanish descent, as revealed in the episode "Annoying Arlene" when her rival Bianca Ortega saying that Spain sent Arlene back, which wasn't the case (because she moved from Spain due to inner ear infection). She appeared in the episodes "Annoying Arlene" and "Cat-Astrophe". Her father, Barry Roca, is a record producer, who Iron Weasel has often attempted (but failed) to get a record deal with.
