The waitress just can't get away from the gang on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. In the season finale, Charlie has written a musical for her, in hopes of finally winning her over. She reacts as would be expected at this point.

Mary Elizabeth Ellis is The Waitress

"I think just disgust and humiliation," said Mary Elizabeth Ellis. "I can't believe that they won't leave me alone."

It may be futile to hold out hope for this relationship in season four, but apparently the fans still do. "I think everyone, people send me e-mails that are like, 'Will you ever hook up with him? Why won't you give him a chance?' and I'm like, 'I mean, really? He huffs spray paint and doesn't have a shower and lives with an old man. Can't read, is illiterate, totally. Why would I give him a chance. Stalks me."

Of course, the waitress still can't get enough of Dennis. "Yeah, sadly. I feel like maybe she gets a little bit of disdain for him this season but we'll see what they write for me and see what happens next year. You're right though. He always does terrible things to me. He has no idea what my name is."

Actually, the fans don't know her name yet either. "No, we don't. I think I do. I had a name at the very beginning but I think it's a secret or either it dissolved."

At least Charlie and the waitress have a happy ending in real life. However, since they are married in real life, sometimes Ellis doesn't even get to see the finished episodes.

"I don't ever get to watch them because Charlie works on them for so long that when he comes home, he won't watch them with me. I feel kind of like a loser watching them by myself. I should just do that. If I didn't work on the show probably I wouldn't, I would watch them all the time by myself but I don't know, there's something weird about watching yourself while no one's home with you and being like, 'Ha ha, look at me.' That's just kind of sad, right?"

The season finale of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia airs Thursday, November 20th on FX.
