Amy Brenneman as Violet in Private Practice on TV2

Dr Violet Turner (Amy Brenneman) is a psychiatrist at the Oceanside Wellness Centre. 

Able to deftly advise her patients in their relationships, she's intense, determined and unwilling to let outsiders see the obvious cracks in her veneer. 

Violet dated both Sheldon and Pete at the same time, and has recently discovered she is pregnant with no idea who the father is. Her best friend, Dr Cooper Freedman, has moved in to her home in order to support her during her pregnancy.

Key quote for Violet's character:

Cooper: You're just... you're, uh, you're just honest. That's your fatal flaw. It's my favorite thing about you.
Violet: All right.
Cooper: Come here.
Violet: You want to help me run the bike over with my car?
Cooper: Absolutely.
