24. Ms. Trinidad
She was only in one episode, but it was one of the most memorable, featuring the beautiful Beverly Johnson at her seductive best. We also got to see Gina pay homage to the time-honored tradition of putting on Vaseline before engaging in fisticuffs when she was about to fight for her man.
7. Dragonfly Jones
Dragonfly Jones was the best worst martial arts instructor ever, often moving the cast to break character and crack up laughing (keep your eye on Cole in this scene). What he lacked in actual fighting skill, he made up for with a lack of teeth.
Hustleman represents that guy everybody knows: the one who is always talking about “grinding,” is constantly looking for a way to earn a dollar, and has horrible ideas on how to do so. He was a wedding planner, a pizza delivery man, a flower salesman, and a saxophone player, among other things. Arguably Tracy Morgan’s greatest work, ever.
4. Bruhman From the Fifth Flo’
Bruhman lived upstairs on the fifth floor of Martin’s apartment — or maybe it was the fourth floor, since he always held up four fingers when telling Martin where he lived. He spoke slow and moved even more slowly, preferring to come and go through the window rather than the first floor. Bruhman didn’t appear on the show beyond the third season (with the exception of a couple of episodes), but he made a lasting impression with that slow bop he walked with.
Jerome was the original playa — from the Himalayaaaaas. An old mack from waaaaay back. Jerome, like his wardrobe, was stuck in the ’70s, often speaking in rhyme and asking strangers about his money. But he was lovable (occasionally), passionate, and had some really great lines.
2. Rev. Leon Lonnie Love
Putting him all the way up at No. 2 may be a controversial move, but that church entrance alone secures it. David Allan Grier shone with a couple of appearances as Pam’s sleazy, sanctified cousin. With a couple more appearances under his belt, he very well could have made No. 1.
1. Sheneneh Jenkins
Of course Sheneneh is No. 1. Loud, unapologetic, independent, and fabulous, Martin’s entrepreneurial neighbor had a big mouth and a big personality to match. Sheneneh’s catchphrase, “Oh no you didn’t!” became a staple of black ’90s lexicon.
