A running gag in the show includes Pony and Steve being portrayed as a possible couple. One example occurs in "Prom Face/Off", when they're suggested by Frank to date each other. However, they instead try to see who can get a date first; these attempts proves futile, so they call it off. A second and more notable example occurs in "China-Man Begins", when many people around town assume Steve and Pony are a couple despite their numerous attempts to prove otherwise. When their final one initially works, a slip of Steve's tongue negates this, and any further thing he and Pony say only further reinforces the townspeople's beliefs.
Despite being portrayed as the voice of reason, Pony has been shown to do anything it takes for personal gain. In "Secret Society", after Steve becomes a tenured professor, Pony desires to be one as well. Witnessing the Dean's infatuation for elderly women and subsequently saving his life, she blackmails him, threatening to tell his wife about his infidelity if he does not give her tenure. When Steve's recklessness jeopardizes her tenure, she goes to great lengths simply for the material gain. Later, in "Is College Worth It?", the Dean raises tuition fees, forcing Pony to find a way to remain in school. After a failed attempt to enroll in a Mexican university, she hears about the Dean's reward for the capture of Kevin Costner, then searches for him. Afterward, she captures him and takes him to the school, where he is hung, giving her the reward and thus another year at UCI.
In addition, she can be ill-tempered and break out in rage. In "A Gentleman's Bet", she loses patience with Baby Cakes when his commentary and questions cause the think tank to remain trapped in the truck much longer than need be. When she reaches her breaking point, she furiously attacks the man-child, causing the truck to roll violently around campus and kill anyone in its path. Even after it stops, she continues attacking Baby Cakes until their fight is broken up. Furthermore, she has a tendency to gossip, claiming she can't be excluded from "the secret loop." As a result, at least one person does not trust her with his secrets, causing Pony to go to great, though ultimately fruitless, attempts to learn his secret directly.
Pony is thought to be the most knowledgeable about history of the history professors. She brings this up occasionally, such as in "Secret Society". In addition, it's shown that Pony is quite capable of teaching a class by herself after given tenure, though this never happens again once it's revoked.
