Episode Description

Claire is trying to catch and stop a sports car that is speeding through the suburban streets, while Phil sells a house nearby for a difficult client, Laura, who happens to be the car driver. Claire prints out several posters, intending to say "slow down," with the license plate of the car below, signed "your neighbors". However, the rest of her family point out the posters actually state "slow down your neighbors". Regardless, Claire orders Phil to put them up. Later, Claire chases the car on a bicycle, but loses it. She meets Phil at the open house he has arranged for Laura and is introduced to her. Laura is just about to leave and offers Claire a lift back to her home. She enters the car realizing too late that Laura is the driver she despises, which makes Claire to get very angry at Phil, so he buys her a dozen Mylar balloons to apologize.

Manny is about to ride his first bicycle to school. However, Jay finds training wheels on the bike, set up by Gloria. Jay decides to teach Manny to ride without the stabilizers, and comes to realize Manny is a natural at riding a bike by himself. As Gloria has never ridden a bike either, after being traumatized by her mother that riding a bicycle is the best way to getting kidnapped, Jay tries to teach her too, but she is unsuccessful. Gloria goes to the Dunphy house and asks Phil to teach her but he is about to leave for the open house at Laura's. Luke offers himself to teach her by squirting her with a water gun, and it works, but soon goes south after Claire steals her bike while Gloria is still on it.

Meanwhile, after laying down Lily in her cradle, Mitchell and Cameron see a stranger in their hot tub. They are about to call the police until he stands up and they see a man who has nice abs. They rethink their initial thought and join the stranger, whose name is Barry, and reveals that is an expert in Reiki massages. Cameron instantly gets along very well with Barry, while Mitchell considers him weird. Cam is not too happy with Mitchell for writing off Barry for that one little quirk, as it is something Mitchell does all the time. But Mitchell tries to make nice with Barry, who is cool with Mitchell thinking Reiki is phony. Then Mitchell tries it himself and is hooked. Mitchell admits to Cameron he was right. However, Cameron goes in the backyard and finds that Barry has been living in Lily's princess castle. He tries to get him out and they wrestle inside. Mitchell comes out and Cam demands him to call the police. Mitchell agrees, but as he walks away, tells Cameron that he was right.

In the end credits, Phil tries to teach Haley her homework, but she is not getting the answers right, and Luke offers himself to teach her. He asks the answers and when she doesn't answer, he squirts her with the gun and she answers it correctly. Phil then tells Luke that it is all his now.

Haley Gwendolyn Dunphy is the eldest child of Claire and Phil Dunphy and the sister of Luke and Alex. Haley is currently working independently "promoting clubs and stuff via social media". ("Blindsided").


Before the show

Haley was conceived before her parents got married during a Duran Duran concert ("Message Received"). Claire and Phil eloped afterwards and told everyone that the pregnancy was a surprise. They also had to suspend their honeymoon to Hawaii because of Claire's pregnancy with Haley ("Hawaii"). It is mentioned that Haley was very close to her parents when she was younger, but they grew apart once she hit adolescence ("Chirp"). Claire has stated that Haley used to hug Phil coming home from work ("See You Next Fall"), indicating that she was an affectionate child.


Haley is young and pretty. She's averaged height and very maverick and rebellious. She tends to have her hair very long, but cut it in Season 7 and in Season 8 and new forthcoming Season 9 her hair is short between blonde & dark hair and she's ready to change her wild rebellious party girl teenager in her heart's existence into A True Well-Behaved Woman.


Haley is better remembered by her family for being the pretty girl in the family, and most of her interests and advantages revolve around that.

One recurring theme with Haley is that she seems to share a lot of Claire's personality when she herself was in her rebellious teenage phase, even both describing their mothers as "psycho control freaks" ("Earthquake"). This frustrates Claire who admits that she doesn't want her children to make the same mistakes she did ("Pilot").

Haley is portrayed as somewhat slow and ditzy, often needing to take some time to get jokes. Her lack of intelligence is a constant point of mockery and condescension from Alex and, especially, Claire, who is almost cruel in her derision of her daughter's slow wit. It is also the catalyst of her becoming surprisingly self-reproachful as she later confesses that she is aware of her stupidity and is heavily marred by her family's mockery and derision of her as a failure ("Party Crasher").

It's revealed early on that she's very popular in her high school and as a stereotypical teen she seemingly acts carefree and irresponsible, especially concerning her academics. She however is shown to gradually mature as the series progresses, learning to take responsibility for her actions and future, taking care of her parents and siblings and unexpectedly revealing moments of wisdom and uncommon prescience ("Queer Eyes, Full Hearts", "Do Not Push"). Even so, she takes pleasure in using her shrewdness to occasionally take advantage of her parents and people around her for her benefit ("Suddenly, Last Summer") and tries to make money.

Haley's interests mainly concerns her image with people outside her family and shopping ("Express Christmas"). In season five, she is chosen to be part of an exhibit to display her photography from class, which is revealed to be of her family ("iSpy"). Soon after she became an adult, Haley has developed a liking to drinking alcohol, an interest she seems to share with her mother ("Haley's 21st Birthday").

Due to Andy's influence on her life, Haley is trying to be a better person ("Clean Out Your Junk Drawer"). Haley also wants to slow down on her wild partying ("Express Yourself"). Haley told Andy, "I like the me I am when I'm with you." After Andy Bailey Left L.A. and Haley Met Rainer Shine-The Weatherman of the fictional station in L.A., CA called KJQS-TV ABC 12 (unlike both Santa Barbara's KEYT 3 ABC, KCOY-TV CBS 12 & The Real WALT DISNEY/ABC Company Station KABC-TV ABC 7) and Father Phil Shocked & Mother Claire Got Crass & Been Mean to her to join the edgy fuss.

Season Summaries

Haley is described by Claire in the "Pilot" as being very much like her when she was a teenager. So she tries to makes sure that her daughter won't make the same mistakes. Haylie starts dating Dylan during the first episode, but it is revealed later on that she hasn't been single since she was 9. She is concerned about her popularity at school which she attributes to her embarrassment of her parents. She is learning to drive and isn't very good (she once refused to pull over when being signed by a police car because she was afraid of cops), but later improved and got her license. She and Dylan have an off-again on-again relationship as they do for most of the show.

Dylan wins Haley back after performing a song outside her house on Valentine's Day. Haley tells her family that she does not want to go to college because she believes it's a waste of time. But she later explains to Alex that she's scared about leaving high school since she's barely passing the 11th grade.

While vacationing with the family in Wyoming, Dylan proposes to Haley in front of her entire family. Claire immediately says no for her, causing tension in their relationship since Haley believes that her mother won't let her make her own decisions. However, Haley reveals to her mom that she was going to say "no" to Dylan's proposal. Dylan ends up going missing, but he's later found after getting a job as a ranch hand. So they break up once again. She is afraid that she won't be accepted into a college, but she is wait-listed by a college at the end of "Election Day". After months of waiting and finally accepting that she won't be accepted into a college, she decides to move in with Dylan after she graduates. Luke confesses though that he hid her acceptance letter (along with a lot of other mail) because he doesn't want her to go. After finding out that she is in fact going to college, she and Dylan decide to go to prom.

Haley finally goes to the college as shown in "Schooled". But a few episodes later, she goes off to college only to be kicked out for underage drinking and (accidental) battery of a police officer. She then moves back in with her family and starts having to deal with the pressure from her parents to attend community college, go to work and get her life together in general before she is able to re-apply at the college next semester.

Haley is living back with her parents and attending community college. In "Three Dinners" she is pressured by her parents who do not believe she has any future plans or aspirations, but she proves them wrong by revealing her interest in fashion photography, and the blog she is keeping to earn extra money. In "ISpy", her work is featured in a photography exhibition (one of only five in her class chosen) and one of her photographs is sold. In "A Fair to Remember," Haley encounters Andy for the first time. Although, initially, they don't completely hit it off; as the day continues, they seem to have developed a mutual liking for one another as evidenced by their playful banter and friendly teasing. As the season progresses, so too does Haley's feelings for Andy. In "Other People's Children," Haley steps in as a stand-in for Andy's girlfriend Beth for the video love letter he's making for her with Phil's help. Andy lifts Haley up and holds her in his arms and looks deep into her eyes as he recites how much he loves his girlfriend. The look on Haley's face confirms she is beginning to fall for the nice guy. Later, Haley watches Andy lovingly as he and Phil reenact the movie "Gravity." She tells Alex, "It's weird. There's something about him." Alex replies, "Yeah, he's just like dad." Despite this comparison grossing Haley out initially, she can't seem to stop the feelings she is developing for Andy. In "The Wedding (Part 1)," Haley agrees to drive Andy to the airport. When Andy's phone rings, he asks Haley to answer it because he doesn't want to put their lives at risk since he's driving. Haley reads a text that his flight has been delayed and also sees a text from Beth telling Andy that it's over. At the coffee shop, Haley confronts Andy about the text message and if he is sure about getting on that plane. Andy tells Haley that Beth just likes the drama and that Haley should drop the issue. In "The Wedding (Part 2)," Haley can't stop checking her phone due to concern about Andy. Alex confronts Haley about her feelings for Andy, which Haley denies. Alex finds the whole thing hilarious because Andy is not Haley's usual type. Haley returns to the coffee shop and tells Andy he "deserves better" than Beth. After returning to the new wedding venue (Cam and Mitch's house), Haley keeps checking her phone for updates on Andy. She tells Alex she is going to invite Andy to hang out at the wedding. Alex warns Haley that she better know what she is doing. Alex says, “Here's the thing about nice, quiet dorks like Andy. You get over us much faster than we get over you.” With Alex's warning fresh in her mind, Haley lies and tells Andy she was speaking generally when Andy calls her to ask if she meant anyone in particular when she said he deserved better. She tells Andy, "The hardest part is just figuring out what you want." Andy says that's what he thought and they say goodbye to each other disappointed. Unbeknownst to Haley, Andy pulls away in a taxi that he was waiting in right outside the house.

Haley is still living in the basement of her parents' house. On her 21st birthday, her dad buys her a brand new car. She gets a job working as the assistant to fashion designer, Gavin Sinclair after she and Andy help each other prepare for job interviews. In "The Cold," Andy and Haley share their first kiss, which visibly affects Haley. Despite kissing, Andy and Haley continue to be just friends. It's revealed throughout the season that they have been spending a lot of time together. They attend a carnival ("Closet? You'll Love It!") and a Radiohead concert ("American Skyper"), get cronuts together ("Connection Lost"), and even help each other prepare for job interviews that help them to secure job positions ("Queer Eyes, Full Hearts"); however, both secretly have stronger feelings than just friends for one another. When Haley visits Andy in the hospital before his appendectomy surgery, and believing Andy is unconscious, Haley confesses he has a shot with her ("Closet? You'll Love It!"). A couple weeks later, after Andy can't stop thinking about Haley, he decides to have the big talk with her about what she had told him in the hospital, but, unfortunately, she's now dating a doctor she met on that same day ("Grill, Interrupted"). Later, she tells Andy that she isn't looking for anything serious so Andy decides against telling her how he really feels. Without knowing how Haley really feels about him and due to Phil's encouragement to propose to Beth, after Andy told him he has a "serious connection" with another girl, Andy decides to propose to his girlfriend, Beth, in "American Skyper." Haley confides in her dad about how she thinks Beth is after her because Beth thinks Haley is in love with Andy. Phil asks her if she is and Haley says "no" and then goes on to say that she cares about him, he makes her laugh, and she likes spending time with him. Phil asks if she thinks about Andy when he is not around. She replies, "Sometimes I see something funny and I think, 'Oh, Andy would love that; I wish he were here so I could share it with him.'" Phil replies, "That sounds like love to me." With tears in her eyes, Haley says it doesn't matter anyway because he's in love with someone else. Andy knocks on the door and enters the room as Haley wipes her eyes. He has come to say goodbye. Haley and Andy hug, and Phil, who is watching them, realizes based on Andy's facial expressions that Haley is the girl Andy was talking about earlier. Phil tries to tell them that they love each other and that Andy is making a huge mistake by proposing to Beth, but they cannot hear him as the sound on his iPad has gone off. Andy leaves with Beth to head to the beach where he is planning to propose to her that day. Haley closes the front door behind them and stomps off upset and frustrated.

Haley is still living in the basement of her parents' house while working in fashion. She is no longer attending her two-year community college because she graduated after spending three years there ("Express Yourself"). After Phil realizes that Haley and Andy have feelings for each other, he calls Haley so she can stop Andy's proposal ("Summer Lovin"). By the time she gets to the beach Andy likes and after Claire tells her to take a moment to consider if she's sure about what she's about to do, it's too late. She has to watch heartbroken as Andy proposes to Beth. After some time goes by, a depressed Haley starts dating Dylan again. A couple months after Andy's proposal, Andy is accidentally told that Haley tried to stop his proposal when he overhears Phil and Claire talking in their kitchen. He becomes so distressed at hearing this news that he ends up eating his emotions and gains a lot of weight. A couple months later, Haley and Dylan run into Andy (who has now lost the extra pounds) and Beth at the movies ("The More You Ignore Me"). When the movie ends, the two couples go out for burgers and beers together. Afterwards, Haley breaks up with Dylan in her car while driving back home. A couple weeks later, Haley encounters Andy again, but this time at Phil's Sexy, Sexy House. They almost kiss on the couch before they hear other intruders and hide. When everyone leaves and it's safe for them to come back out, they blame their almost kiss on the sexiness of the house. Once Haley exits the house, she immediately runs back in to give Andy a passionate kiss, which he willingly reciprocates. In "Clean Out Your Junk Drawer," it's revealed that Haley and Andy had sex, which leads to them having an affair since Andy is still engaged to Beth. In "White Christmas," Andy and Haley can't keep their hands off each other and they end up getting caught putting their pants back on in a locked closet. Phil tells Andy that if this is something real, it's time for him to step up and be a man and tell Beth the truth. When Andy goes to break things off with Beth, she tells him that she has been cheating on him with two other guys for the past few months. Andy and Beth break up, leaving Andy free to officially start dating Haley. Also, it's revealed that Andy passed his real estate license test after Haley helped him cram. In "The Storm," Andy tells Haley he wants to slow things down a bit between them in order for them to catch up emotionally to where they are physically so they don't burn out. He says he wants to wait for the perfect moment so they can start their relationship right. Haley points out that the perfect moment is the one they are currently experiencing outside in the rain. They then share a romantic kiss out in the storm. In "Express Yourself," Haley tells Andy, "I love normal Andy. Tomato-soup-and-grilled-cheese Andy. Still-in-bed-by-11:00 Andy. Uses-the-word-tummy Andy." She goes on to say, "I like the me I am when I'm with you." In "Double Click," Andy's cousin Evan offers him his dream career as a real estate agent, but he'd have to relocate back to Utah. Phil and Haley tell Andy to take the job so he does. Haley and Andy decide to do a long-distance relationship. As they say goodbye to each other at the airport, Andy tells Haley he doesn't regret a single minute he spent with her and Haley tells Andy he is the first man she ever loved.



Haley's family are very important to her, they can also be viewed as her friends. In the first Season Haley tends to not want to be friends with her family. However, as the seasons progress, she finds herself becoming friends with Gloria, Jay, and her uncles Cam and Mitch. Her family and their relationships are listed below:




Phil is Haley's Dad, and makes sure that he tries to keep his daughter safe and protected, but usually he fails in the process, sometimes humiliating her. Phil tries his best to keep up with her, although gets scared he's going to lose her to boys. Phil has tried multiple times to keep Haley's virginity safe guarded although he failed, evidently.

Virgin Territory
Phil finds out that Haley has lost her virginity, which bothers him, realizing his 'little girl' has grown up. Haley later comforts Phil, telling him she'll always be his girl, she just isn't little anymore, and she'll always need him. It is implied later that her first time is with Dylan.


Jay is Haley's Grandpa, Jay doesn't have a lot of interaction with her, but they seem to have a great friendship.

Great Expectations
Haley would rather go to a party than stay the whole night with her grandpa while they do a thing called 'Jay's Night', where all the kids in the family stay over at Jay and Gloria's house, eat Jay's Sloppy Jays and watch a western movie. Jay finds out that Haley wants to go to a party but restricts her from going. He takes her shoes to stop her from walking outside and he makes her stay there. Gloria convinces him to let her go and he does. Haley then thanks her Grandpa and Jay tells her that he will track her down and Haley tells Jay that she know he will.


Mitch is Haley's uncle. They seem to have a great friendship. Mitch was invited to celebrate Haley’s 21st birthday party at a bar (“Haley's 21st Birthday”) and he and Gloria were going to go out with Haley to some late-night clubs before they both got too tired and couldn’t go (“Knock 'Em Down”). Haley even feels comfortable enough discussing her love life with her uncle Mitch (“Connection Lost”).

Connection Lost
Claire wants Mitch to tell her who Haley has been recently dating since Haley usually goes to him to talk about boys. Mitch tells Claire, “There was one boy that she thought she might like, but she was weirdly secretive about him.” Based on past episodes, it’s pretty obvious that Haley was talking about Andy to an oblivious Mitch.

Love Interests

Haley has a few boyfriends from Season 1-7; however, two of her boyfriends standout from the others: Dylan and Andy. Dylan was Haley's high school boyfriend and they've had an on and off (currently off) relationship throughout the series. Haley's relationship with Andy was more of a "will they or won't they" type thing until they finally got together in Season 7. Haley told Andy that he is the first man she ever loved ("Double Click"). Information about her love interests are listed below.


Dylan is Haley's on-and-off boyfriend. He is featured frequently throughout the series, especially in the first season where he is introduced as Haley's first real boyfriend. He still maintains a close relationship with Phil, though Claire is not very fond of him.

Dude Ranch
Dylan goes with the family to a ranch in Wyoming. After Haley (and Claire) rejects Dylan's marriage proposal, he runs away and subsequently gets a job at the ranch.
Dylan and Haley get back together after she sees Dylan in Disneyland, working as one of the Dapper Dans. Post-Disneyland Dylan worked as a limo driver, during which time he has contact with Haley. Although they don't seem exclusive, he seems to be the only consistent guy who Haley dates back then.
Virgin Territory
It is implied that Haley's first time is with Dylan. This is then confirmed by Claire, her mother, who knew about it but kept it a secret from her husband, Haley's father, who doesn't want his little girl growing up, Claire was trying to spare his pain. Claire then tells Phil and Phil tells her thank you for not telling, him until now.

Summer Lovin'
Haley begins dating Dylan again because she is heartbroken over Andy proposing to Beth.
The More You Ignore Me
Haley breaks up with Dylan in her car after attending a movie and going out to dinner with Andy and Beth. Haley says she feels like everyone in the world is moving forward and they are moving backwards. Dylan exits the car upset.








Andy is Joe Pritchett's former manny (male nanny), Phil's former real estate assistant and Haley's boyfriend. Andy and Haley have had a "will they or won't they" relationship ever since Andy was first introduced in Season 5. They finally started dating in Season 7.

A Fair to Remember
Haley encounters Andy for the first time. She has come over to her grandfather's house to drink his beer and sunbathe by his pool. She lies to Andy claiming she is Alex, but Andy instantly sees through it when she confuses him being a manny with him claiming to be her Uncle Manny. Andy warns Haley he is going to call Mr. and Mrs. P to tell them where the two missing beers went. He even tries to get proof by taking a picture of Haley out by the pool, drinking one of the beers. Haley calls him a "perv" and Andy tries to get the beer out of Haley's hand, which causes her to drop it. Shards of glass fall into the pool and Andy is forced to go in to retrieve them since Haley refuses to do so. Haley teases Andy about the existence of his U.S. Coast Guard girlfriend. Andy insists she is not imaginary and says it has not been a pleasure meeting Haley. However, when Andy cuts himself on glass he is getting out of the pool, Haley holds his finger to put some pressure on it. Haley asks him why he is a manny anyway, to which he replies that he likes kids and he's saving up for college. Later that night, unbeknownst to each other, Haley calls Gloria to confess she had a couple of beers by the pool and broke one of them, and Andy lies to Jay, saying he had a sip of beer by the pool after Joe went to sleep and a bottle broke. Andy lied in order to take the blame for Haley and protect her from getting into trouble. However, Jay doesn't care because when his kids were small he used to drink beers after they went to sleep.
Other People's Children
Phil offers to help Andy make a video love letter as an anniversary present for Andy's girlfriend Beth, who Andy says he barely ever gets to see. Andy accepts enthusiastically. While the two are making the video at the Dunphy house, Haley waits for her lunch date who is running a few hours late. Andy says her date's behavior is so rude and that a real man would be more considerate of her time. She mockingly counters with, "That's why every year People magazine names the most considerate man alive." Andy tells her to make fun of him all she wants, but when she grows up, she'll find out what qualities make up a real man. Phil then shows up to apply make-up to Andy's face. Later, Haley steps in as the stand-in for Beth. Andy lifts Haley up and holds her in his arms and looks deep into her eyes as he recites how much he loves his girlfriend. The look on Haley's face confirms she is beginning to fall for the nice guy. When Haley's rude and inconsiderate lunch date finally arrives, Haley tells him off by repeating comments Andy made earlier that day. She yells at him that she would rather wait for someone who would walk through a blizzard for her and who only honks to support the troops. Later, Haley watches Andy lovingly as he and Phil re-enact the movie "Gravity." She tells Alex that there is something about Andy and Alex says he is just like dad, which then grosses Haley out.
The Wedding (Part 1)
Haley agrees to drive Andy to the airport. He is planning to go to Utah to visit Beth. As they drive, Andy tells Haley that she is funny, pretty, and smart in an original way so why shouldn't a guy feel lucky to love her. Although she pretends to shrug them off, Haley is secretly flattered and touched by his sincere compliments. When Andy's phone rings, he asks her to answer it because he doesn't want to put their lives at risk since he's driving. Haley reads a text that his flight has been delayed and also sees a text from Beth telling Andy that it's over. Andy says he'll wait for a taxi to pick him up at a coffee shop and Haley tells him she'll grab a coffee with him. As they sit in the coffee shop, Haley takes a picture of Andy and Andy compliments her by saying that it is honestly the best picture anyone has ever taken of him. Andy asks if he can send the picture to Beth and Haley decides to breach the subject of the text message she read and whether or not Andy is sure about getting on that plane. Andy tells her that Beth does this from time to time because she just likes the drama. Andy doesn't want to discuss it anymore and gives Haley the keys to his car. Haley leaves.
The Wedding (Part 2)
Haley can't stop checking her phone due to concern about Andy. Alex confronts Haley about her feelings for Andy, which Haley denies. Alex finds the whole thing hilarious because Andy is not Haley's usual type. When Haley returns to the coffee shop to talk to Andy. His flight has been delayed again and the wedding has been moved due to a fire. Andy flirts by saying the fire explains Haley's "smokin'" dress. Haley then invites Andy to hang out at the wedding since he's just sitting around. He replies that he isn't dressed for it, but, if he was with her, nobody would even notice him. Haley tells Andy that he "deserves better" than Beth before she heads back to the wedding. At the new wedding venue (Cam and Mitch's house), Haley keeps checking her phone for updates on Andy. She tells Alex she is going to invite Andy to hang out at the wedding since his flight has been delayed again. Alex warns Haley that she better know what she is doing. Alex says, “Here's the thing about nice, quiet dorks like Andy. You get over us much faster than we get over you.” With Alex's warning fresh in her mind, Haley lies and tells Andy she was speaking generally when Andy calls her to ask if she meant anyone in particular when she said he deserved better. She tells Andy, "The hardest part is just figuring out what you want." Andy says that's what he thought and they say goodbye to each other disappointed. Unbeknownst to Haley, Andy pulls away in a taxi that he was waiting in right outside the house.

The Cold
Haley and Andy talk about what happened between them the day of the wedding. They both agree that they are better off as friends. Andy says it would have been a disaster if they had kissed and that the kiss would have affected Haley more than him. Haley seems offended so Andy clarifies by saying that kissing her would have rocked his world since she is so pretty and out of his league, but he still insists that it would have hit her harder. Haley tries to prove Andy wrong by planting a kiss on him in the disguise of a hug. However, it seems Andy is proven right as Haley appears to have been extremely affected by the kiss.
Queer Eyes, Full Hearts

Alex is Haley's younger sister, she also happens to be her polar opposite. While Alex is smart, quick witted, and geeky, Haley is popular, outgoing and shallow. At the beginning of the series Haley and Alex had a much more strained relationship with Alex always trying to stand apart from her sister and Haley constantly mocking Alex on her life choices, such as clothing, homework, boys and Alex would return the mocking. As years have progressed the two girls have grown closer. Haley and Alex once convinced Luke that he was adopted, and Phil's old girlfriend wanted to take him home. Though they still mock and tease each other, it is in a more playful way and you know that they love and care about each other.

Claire is Haley's Mom, Claire makes sure that her daughter does not, in her words, "wake up on a beach in Florida half-naked". Claire tries to keep her daughter safe and protected. Although she doesn't do this with Alex as Alex is smarter than her family and knows what not to do. Claire and Haley had a very close relationship as Haley grew up, but when she became a teenager Claire and Haley grew apart and Haley became like her Mom, which is something that Claire fears, although they did grow apart they prove each time that they still have a very strong loving relationship.

Ethan is a boy Claire invites to go to Disneyland in "Disneyland" with the family because she wants Haley to fall for him and completely get over Dylan, who had moved to Wyoming in "Dude Ranch". Haley, adamant that she wasn't going to babysit him, quickly changes her opinion after meeting him, much to Claire's delight. But then much to Claire's chagrin, Dylan shows up at Disneyland completely unannounced. Claire tries to get Haley not to see or notice him, but fails. He rushes off after running into them, and Haley realizes that she still likes Dylan. So she ditches Ethan, leaving Alex with Ethan, another thing that Claire did not like.

After some time, Dylan meets up with Ethan and Haley again in his Little John costume declaring his love for Haley. Ethan and Dylan get into a minor scuffle.

Vincent, though we never see him, is mentioned in Season 6. He is apparently an ex-con who works at a florist shop. She intentionally did not tell her parents about him because she knew they wouldn't approve of her dating an ex-con.

Kenny is a temporary love interest seen in "Party Crasher" whom Haley met at work where he designs jeans for their boutique. Kenny lives a bohemian lifestyle and sports a ponytail and a bushy beard. Claire soon realizes that Haley is dating the older and disgusting Kenny just to get back at Phil (something she is guilty of herself when she was younger) and warns Phil not to do anything to make it go away. Phil, however at the last minute was not able to resist and tries to go after them, saying no guy on earth is good enough for her "little girl". Witnessing this, Haley hugs Phil and subsequently dumps Kenny.

Scott is a temporary love interest seen in Season 5's "Other People's Children." Haley waits all day for him to come pick her up for their lunch date. He shows up hours later in his car outside Haley's house. His excuse for being late is that he fell asleep. He tells Haley, "You were the first or second person I texted after I woke up." Haley replies that he should have been rested enough then to come to the front door. Haley tells Scott off by repeating comments Andy made earlier that day. She says, "I would rather wait for someone who would walk through a blizzard for me and who only honks to support the troops." She storms back into her house instead of going on her lunch date with Scott.

Chase is a temporary love interest seen in Season 6's "Closet? You'll Love It!." He doesn't seem like the brightest person in the world. Haley attends a carnival with him and Andy. Haley seems to be enjoying her time at the carnival with Andy more than she is with Chase. Chase seems to be a third wheel, not understanding Haley and Andy's jokes and shared sense of humor. Chase works at the Sunglass Hut so he picked out the new sunglasses Haley is wearing that day. When Chase's manager calls him, Chase says he can't wait until the Fall when his manager is off to college. Chase leaves to take the phone call and when he returns he has a foam finger with him. He asks Haley to help him find his keys, but then realizes his keys are in his jacket that he is no longer wearing.

Will is a temporary love interest seen in Season 6's "Grill, Interrupted." He is a doctor who Haley met the same day she went to visit Andy in the hospital for his appendectomy surgery. Will asks Andy to help him write a card for Haley and Andy agrees. Later, when Andy reads the card to Haley, Haley is disappointed that her boyfriend seems so into her. Will also got Haley a present, a gold heart necklace. Haley tells Andy she just wanted something fun; she wasn't looking for anything serious.
