The writers of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" initially created Dee Reynolds as a timid voice of reason her male counterparts valued little. But when she turned out to be just as hilariously self-serving as they were, they only got bolder with their mistreatment.

Dee Reynolds may have shrunk herself at the beginning of the dark comedy, but she found a way to make herself heard. Even then, the gang was relentless in body-shaming her and using her failures against her.

Somehow, though, Dee only seemed to grow more delusional about her abilities and supposed good moral standing. But let a lucrative, i.e., shady opportunity present itself, and her true nature will undoubtedly surface.

Still, there was more to Dee explored in the series, especially after the actress who portrayed her, Kaitlin Olson, was given creative control over her development. Read her iconic punchlines and hilarious lamentations below.

Dee Reynolds may have taken every opportunity to land a quick buck, often embroiling and sometimes even plotting her own troubles, but her closest loved ones, including her own brother, played by Glenn Howerton, didn't always foster a happy and healthy environment for her to thrive.

Perhaps that's why she often went too far trying to prove herself. "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" uses a comedic lens to delve into her toxic family dynamic and unhealthy friendships. In a way, she is similar to the no-nonsense coach Sue Sylvester from "Glee," Paris Geller from "Gilmore Girls," and Roy Kent in "Ted Lasso."
