Ben's girlfriend is called Melissa Florance and she has a rather large bush that she likes to keep sparrows in.  Ben is always asking Melissa to prune her bush to which she always refuses citing the fact that she like's the '70s look' because it's 'retro'.

She also had to go to the hospital at the end of season 4 to have a cucumber removed from her rectum after falling awkwardly in the local greengrocers.
