Phil Lessing (portrayed by Phil Abrams) is the friend of Adam and Kristina Braverman, the husband of Suze, and the father of Noel, who is an autistic kid Max's age. He and Suze split up for a little, but ultimately reconcile later.
Phil and Suze meet Adam and Kristina in "Man vs. Possum" when Adam and Kristina reach out for advice about having an autistic kid. Although their son, Max, is not yet diagnosed, but Phil and Suze are happy to give them some tips and guidance. During Phil's eight episode arc, he and Suze are shown to be much more interested in a friendship with Adam and Kristina then they are. Phil and Suze split up for a little, but get back together after talking separately with Adam and Kristina.
