Janey who first appeared in Bart the General was once Lisa Simpson's closest friend. She has spent the night over the Simpsons' house and Lisa is seen watching cartoons at her house on numerous occasions.
However, at times, she seems to resent Lisa and her intelligence; she once blew a bubble with chewing gum rather than engage in Lisa's conversation. She may have had a crush on Milhouse Van Houten, who has a crush on Lisa. She enjoys reading babysitting books.
She is shown as the spectre of George Washington's reluctant second choice for first female President after Lisa disappoints him, to which Lisa fiercely objected on the grounds Janey would just fill the Supreme Court with boys.
