According to Rebecca's mother, Rebecca is selfish, dramatic, and weird. Rebecca is desperate, lonely, and self-loathing. Despite these things, Rebecca was accepted into both Harvard and Yale, and is highly intelligent. In Manhattan, she was a successful lawyer, but never really loved her job. She now works in a smaller firm in West Covina, California.
Rebecca is always searching for happiness. According to her, she suffers from anxiety and depression which complicate her pursuit of happiness. Mentally, Rebecca isn't well and in the pilot episode, she can be seen with prescribed pills. Her mental state causes her to be wildly impulsive and not think about the consequences of her actions.
When Rebecca was 7 years old she liked to pretend she was part of her favorite movie "Slumbered". She would force her friend, Jake, to play along and dream about her happily ever after.
When Rebecca was 12 years old she invited everyone in her grade over for a party, but only a few kids showed up. During her party, her parents got into an argument where her Dad called her 3 friends losers and her mom accused him of having an affair. Rebecca's father then stomped out, which eventually led to her parents divorcing.
It was revealed in the episode "Josh Has No Idea Where I Am! "that Rebecca tricked her mom into thinking she was going to a camp (when she was really going to see her father). Rebecca's father ended up calling her mom to pick Rebecca up and take her home. Rebecca had always thought that her mom was trying to separate them until Dr. Akopian showed her otherwise.In 2005, Rebecca attended Camp Canyon Grove, a musical summer camp where she met and dated Josh Chan. Rebecca was head over heels with Josh and was heartbroken that summer was coming to an end. However, Josh didn't feel the same way and broke up with her because he thought she was over dramatic and weird.
Over the next 10 years, Rebecca attended and graduated from Harvard and Yale and became a successful real estate lawyer at a prestigious law firm in Manhattan, with half-a-million dollar salary. Although her life seems great and happy, Rebecca is miserable. Rebecca suffers from anxiety and depression and takes medication for it albeit in many quantities in order to feel numb.
On the streets of New York, Rebecca runs into her ex-boyfriend from summer camp, Josh Chan. Josh tells Rebecca that he's moving back to his hometown, West Covina, where everyone is always smiling. After their conversation Rebecca decides to move to West Covina to find happiness and is definitely not moving there for Josh (or at least that's what she tells herself.) On the verge of being named partner at a big New York law firm, seemingly at the top of her game, when during one of her many sleepless nights she sees a commercial that asks, "When was the last time you were truly happy?" Now that Rebecca has turned down a huge promotion and quit her job she begins a new job in West Covina. She gets a job as an attorney at Whitefeather & Associates,with her a new boss named, Darryl Whitefeather (Pete Gardner).
Rebecca makes a late-night trip to the grocery store and runs into Josh with his girlfriend Valencia. Floored by how pretty Valencia is, Rebecca decides to attend the Yoga class Valencia teaches to become her friend, not realizing that Paula is feeling ignored. Even though Josh warns her not to get too close to Valencia, Rebecca takes her to lunch and helps her get a yoga studio. A drunk Rebecca blurts out that she and Josh were in love, and Valencia storms away with Josh. Rebecca apologizes to Paula, calling her a true friend. Josh apologizes for asking Rebecca to lie and asks her out to dinner.
When Josh's girlfriend tells him not to spend time alone with Rebecca, Paula suggests she throw a party as a way to invite him over. Rebecca faces her fear of hosting parties that she's had since her father walked out on her family in front of her friends. Although she successfully invites Josh, Greg is still angry at her and refuses to go. Rebecca is mortified when Josh shows up to a near-empty party, but he reassures her that it's totally normal and helps her spruce it up. Rebecca reconciles with Greg.
Rebecca attempts to meet Josh at the skate park, but is dismayed when he doesn't come. To make herself feel better, she enlists the help of Heather to find a fling on Tinder, but changes her mind at the last second. The next day, Greg musters up his courage and asks Rebecca to "settle" for him. Josh starts looking for a job and, after seeing an opening at the tech store he likes, comes to Rebecca for help with his resume, while simultaneously convincing Rebecca to accept Greg's date invitation. Josh's interview doesn't go well, due to Rebecca's "help", making him look too uptight for the laid-back store, and ends up begrudgingly taking a job at his father's radiology clinic. Greg and Rebecca go out to the taco festival for their date, which goes well, until Rebecca ends up ditching him for the vegan guacamole vendor she met. Greg confronts her after and storms out. Rebecca sees that Josh is at the clinic, and storms in with Josh to the tech center and gets him the job.Josh are at Boba Hut flipping through a scrapbook from summer camp, when an angry Greg interuppts. He's still mad at Rebecca for ditching him on their date and calls her and Josh terrible people. Unable to forget what Greg said, Rebecca starts putting in an effort to be good. Starting with giving money to a homeless women and becoming Darryl's lawyer. Darryl is fighting for custody of his daughter, Madison with soon to be ex-wife Stacy . Rebecca takes Darryl to Home Base so they can work on the case while simultaneously showing Greg she's a good person. Rebecca brags to Greg about all the recent good she's done, but he still doesn't think of her as good person.Rebecca thinks if she can get Darryl full custody Greg will finally forgive her and hatches a crazy plan that involves $10,000 and getting arrested. Before she can finish her plan Stacy catches her and they come to an agreement to settle the divorce peacefully. Greg finally comes around and sees how hard Rebecca's trying and forgives her. A text from Josh tells her to meet him at Boba Hut where he admits to being attracted to her, but still loves his girlfriend.
My First Thanksgiving With Josh! With a little help from Paula , Rebecca gets herself invited to the Chan family Thanksgiving dinner. Rebecca impresses Josh's family and they like her more than his girlfriend, Valencia . After dinner Rebecca finds herself with diarrhea in the washroom. In the next room she overhears, Valencia and Josh arguing about Rebecca's interference in their relationship. At first Rebecca is excited to hear them argue, until they stop talking and start having sex. Rebecca is trapped in the washroom and can't poo until they leave. After they finish, she rushes home, does her business and rests on the couch. Greg comes over with tacos and tequila and makes up for her horrible Thanksgiving with his company.
Paula and Rebecca are spying on Josh and Valencia as they happily move into their new apartment. Rebecca calls Josh and watches him ignore her call. This is enough to send Rebecca spiraling, at a time when the firm was relying on her the most. Rebecca ruins their meeting with their new client, Calvin Young and a disappointed Darryl asks her to leave early. Rebecca feels lonely and depressed and starts to hallucinate Dr. Phill giving her advice. She ignores him and searches for medication to make her feelings go away. When she can't find pills at home she goes to a therapist hoping to get fast pills, but Dr. Akopian would rather do some therapy before prescribing any medication. Rebecca finds a pill on the washroom floor and against Dr. Phill'sadvice takes it. She then goes to Heather for some downers. High on drugs Rebecca and Heather try to sneak into Dr.Akopian's house and steal her prescription pad, but get caught and she promises to have another session to avoid being charged. As they leave Dr. Akopian's she gets a call from Paula. She is going to have cheat on her husband with Calvin Young if she doesn't stop her. She barges into their hotel room and remind them they need to feel their and not distract themselves with an affair. While also reminding herself she needs to feel her own feelings. As promised Rebecca returns to Dr. Akopian for another session, but leaves early when she gets a text to meet Josh. They both meet the real Dr. Phill.
Rebecca's mom is visiting her in West Covina for Hanukkah and she's very worried about what she'll think of her. She wants to please her mom in every way possible, but tries to convince herself she won't gets obsessed with pleasing her like she always does. Her mom walks in and is already criticizing every part of her life. She visits Rebecca's workplace at Whitefeather & Associates and is greatly disappointed. Rebecca can't handle her criticism and tells her that she works at a sophisticated Jewish firm, and gets Paula to pretend to be one of her British Jewish co-workers. The visit is going so well she thinks her mother will finally give her the family Garfinkel ring until Rebecca's client, Calvin Young calls to meet her for some legal counsel. Her mom insists on coming along, desperate for a date with a hot man, but Calvin doesn't like her and leaves early. Rebecca lies once again that she told Calvin to leave and her mom is very upset. The next day her mom is getting ready to leave and Rebecca can't take it anymore and tells the truth. They share a heart to heart and mend their relationship.
When a lonely Rebecca gets invited to the beach with Josh and his friends she is overjoyed. She rents a party bus for the trip full of music and drinks. That excitement disappears when she finds herself alone once again on the bus. Attempting to get everyone's attention she performs a pole dance, that is no only weird and random, but reveals some parts that are meant to stay hidden. Valencia uses this odd performance to prove that Rebecca is crazy and only moved here for Josh and did all that to impress him. Rebecca repeats her ususal story about the great job offer she got from Darryl , but this time Darryl is there and can fact check it. Rebecca actually called him for the job and eveyone on the bus gets confused. She tries to explain how happy Josh seemed when he talked about West Covina and how she wanted that happiness for herself, but no one understood her. Except, Josh he understood in a way no else seemed to. Rebecca calls Paula to pick her up and for the first time admits that she moved here for Josh and loves him, so much.
Josh is going on a camping trip with an underprivileged youth group he volunteers with. Rebecca sees this as an opportunity to relive their days from summer camp. She donates a large sum of money and the group lets her come along. Rebecca has planned to give Josh a love letter she wrote to him before they broke up 10 years ago. She never got to give it to him and thought this was the perfect time. The teenagers occupy most of their time throughout the day and make Rebecca feel left out. When she finally gets a moment alone with him she reads (or rather sings) him the letter. Josh laughs at the letter. He thinks it's funny how dramatic she used to be and doesn't realize he's crushing her heart. She leaves and throws the letter out, leaving Josh confused. Later that night Rebecca was suppose to give a speech on female empowerment, but can't because she overwhelmed with emotion. The girl campers comfort her and give her a makeover to feel better. Meanwhile Josh takes the letter out of the trash and reads it. He meets Rebecca again to tell her how much he loved the letter and how much it meant to him. He's never had someone believe in him like that before. He kisses her on the cheek leaving her stunned. Back at work Paula tells Rebecca how important a kiss on the cheek is.
Rebecca just talked to Josh and is in a great mood. She's more in love with Josh than ever and thinks he might love her too. She wants to tell Paula , but their in the middle of a case so, she texts her instead. She accidentally sends the message to Josh and has to make sure he never sees it. They stop in the middle of case and everyone helps her brainstorm a plan. Rebecca remembers Josh said he forgot his phone at home and races to get there before him. She successfully deletes the message, but at that same moment Josh gets home and wants to know why she's their. She lies and says someone broke into her house and threw a rock through her window. She says she got scared she came to be with him. Josh believes the lie and they go back to her place to clean it up. She calls Paula to help her and throw a rock thrugh her window. Paula throws the rock before Josh and Rebecca get there securing her lie. Everything's fine until Josh finds the rock that came through her window and it says "ever" on it. It matches Rebecca's rock set with the words "happily", "ever" and "after". Josh doesn't understand how someone entered her house, got the rock, left her house and then threw the rock through the window and didn't even steal anything. Josh leaves Rebecca, and she's feels stupid for what she did. The next day Rebecca is complaining that she ruins everything and Paula is reminding her of all the good she's done and she starts to feel better.
Josh has been avoiding Rebecca since the supposed break-in at her house and Rebecca's been going crazy thinking about him. Paula devises a plan to get them alone together that involves, a smog check, a coupon for Jalapeno Jacks and a new fake boyfriend. The plan works and they haver dinner alone until some of Josh's friends show up and it becomes a group hang. Still desperate for alone time, Rebecca creates a case that Josh and her can work on together. Josh's hot water hasn't been working and Rebecca thinks she can sue the landlord. Valencia doesn't want Josh doing the case, but Rebecca doesn't back down. She gets all the tenets in the building to support her and proves to Josh that the case is a good idea and he agrees. The case gets even bigger when Rebecca meets Bert . Bert has a water conspiracy that Greater City Water has been diverting water away from West Covina and has a deal with landlords across the San Gabriel Valley. This means Josh can sue them for even more money than they thought. She rushes to Josh's apartment to tell him the good news and finds Valencia, Greg and Josh standing with Trent Maddock . The fake boyfriend she found on facebook.
The episode begins, right where it left off with Greg, Josh and Valencia standing with Rebecca's fake boyfriend, Trent.

The dream ghost takes her on a journey through her past to prove love has worked out for her and that she does have love in her life. She discovers her mom loved her more than she thought, she had a real love for musical theater and that her friends in West Covina love her more than she thinks, even Greg .

Everyone she loves is waiting to see if she's okay and welcome her home. After they're sure she's safe, everyone leaves besides Josh.

They go to Jayma's wedding and instead of the magical moment she hoped for, Greg spends the whole night criticizing everything and drinking.

Josh and her agree to take things slow and stop having sex. Josh even says he'll move back into his parents place. However, they can't ignore their sexual tension and have sex anyways. Meanwhile, Paula doesn't want to be apart of Rebecca's schemes anymore and makes her sign a contract promising to keep her out of it.
