Over the years, several neighbours and family members, cropped up with the trio, including Jean Côté, the building’s janitor, Agathe Potvin, a 70-year old widow who was independent and urbane, and outraged at all kinds of social injustice, and the lawyer Carmen Saint-Pierre.

The TV soap opera Chop Suey was directed by Gaétan Bénic and Jean-Louis Sueur. The leading actors were Anne Bédard (Claude Jobin), Valérie Gagné (Hélène Gagnon), Marie-Soleil Tougas (Judith Létourneau). The show was broadcast from September 1, 1987 until 1993.
