Cloudy Jay (better known as "CJ") is a recurring character in Regular Show. CJ is Mordecai's second known girlfriend, and made her debut in the episode "Yes Dude Yes". She is voiced by Linda Cardellini.
CJ is a cloud-humanoid with white skin and a cloud-like face with hair that looks as if it's tied in a pony-tail. She wears a scarlet-striped tank top (goofed light orange while playing Laser Tag), brown shorts, and small black-gray boots.
CJ has a kind and cool personality, being an individual who enjoys a lot of the same things that Mordecai does, including video games, rock bands, and generally goofing off, though she deeply cares for her friends. In the episode "Maxin' and Relaxin", she also reveals that she is a funny person,a habit similar to Mordecai and Rigby and also smart. The Phone Guardians call her witty and independent. This doesn't mean she won't tease or make fun of others, although it is usually good-spirited.
Befitting her cloud-like nature, CJ's appearance mimics her emotional state: when she is happy, she is a white cloud; when she is angry or upset, she becomes a rain cloud. If pushed too far, CJ will morph into a mass array of thunder storms with rain and damaging winds. She has a hard time controlling her negative emotions to the point where she can become violent when angry and moody when upset. Her emotions are clearly visible based on her cloud color.
Mordecai used to be CJ's boyfriend. CJ is introduced in "Yes Dude Yes" as one of the dates Mordecai is set up with by the "Couple Corral". But when she introduces herself to Mordecai, who is depressed as he believes that Margaret is engaged, is clearly not interested in any of his dates. CJ, realizing this, says she still wants to hang out but just as friends. She also mentions that she could just quit work and play video games. Her friendship eventually cheers Mordecai up and the two end up having fun together. CJ soon begins to have a romantic feelings for Mordecai and misinterprets his invite to the movies as him returning those feelings. When Mordecai learns that Margaret is not engaged he almost immediately forgets about CJ. CJ later catches him trying to give the movie tickets to another girl, causing her to erupt into a deadly storm. Mordecai is able to calm her down by explaining that he only thought of them as friends; she is still very hurt and refuses to think that she can be friends with Mordecai.
She briefly appears in "Survival Skills" in a hallucination where she and Margaret are fighting.
After Margaret leaves to go to college, CJ and Mordecai meet again at the New Year's Eve party in "New Year's Kiss". Rigby accidentally pushes Mordecai into CJ, though because it was a masquerade party they don't recognize each other. After a friendly conversation, CJ, envious of the other kissing couples, takes advantage of the remaining minute of midnight to kiss Mordecai who quickly accepts her kiss. After they take off their masks CJ is shocked to see that she was kissing Mordecai and, while Mordecai is distracted by Rigby, she flees the party. There is some ambiguity as to whether Rigby, who was under instructions from his future self to prevent Mordecai from kissing the wrong girl, successfully saved Mordecai from an unhappy future by ruining his "real" date with Tracy Hashtag or if he created this future by reintroducing Mordecai and CJ leading to a potentially doomed relationship.
The following episode, "Dodge This", continues the story just days after the kiss when CJ and Mordecai play against each other in a dodge ball tournament. This leads to awkwardness between them in the final round of the tournament and they are forced to address their issues before the Intergalactic Dodge ball Council. They attempt to fix things by admitting they were afraid the other was upset. CJ and Mordecai agree to be friends again. When they are sent back to the game, CJ takes the opportunity to win the tournament by hitting Mordecai with the ball.
In the episode "Portable Toilet", CJ has lunch with Mordecai, Rigby and Eileen. She accidentally gets Mordecai and Rigby into serious trouble after daring Mordecai to eat a sandwich in a portable toilet. The door gets stuck and the toilet is sent to be destroyed at a military target range. CJ and Eileen leap into another toilet being hauled away and manage to save the guys. They then watch the missiles demolish the portable toilets. Mordecai then notes that CJ is "pretty cool." CJ also mentioned to Eileen that things have "finally stopped being weird" with Mordecai.
In the episode "Video 101", CJ is shown helping Eileen with her music video. On the side, she finds time to make wise/teasing remarks to Mordecai; "burning" him, as Rigby states, twice in that episode.
In the episode "I Like You Hi", Mordecai begins to realize that he has romantic feelings for CJ, but that he is also still hopeful that Margaret will return. While watching X-Extreme Barista, Mordecai's phone accidentally auto-corrects "I like Yuji" to "I like you hi". CJ replies almost sarcastically "I like you too. Hi", much to Mordecai's embarrassment. Thanks to the Phone Guardians, Mordecai is finally able to ask CJ out on a date, to which she replies with a "wink" face and a confirmation leaving Mordecai relieved.
In "Play Date", CJ and Mordecai plan to go on a date but instead they get stuck babysitting Thomas (Death's son). Thomas insists that they take him to the playground; Mordecai is miserable but CJ insists that they can still have fun together. Thomas, unhappy about the park's playground, throws a tantrum and causes a small earthquake. He demands to go to the underworld playground instead and that he will show them the way. Despite Thomas' attempts to ruin their date, the two manage to share their first (intentional) kiss. Even though Mordecai still doesn't consider CJ as his girlfriend (because he hasn't officially asked her and they just started dating), one could tell that they are quickly connecting. It is also proven that CJ is adapting fast to the 'irregular' things that happen when she is with Mordecai.
In the episode "Skips in the Saddle", it is revealed that Mordecai and CJ were going to a laser light show together, hinting that their relationship is growing and connecting. Rigby even teases him the next day, saying: "Did you put your arm around CJ?"
In the episode "Real Date", CJ and Mordecai plan to go on a romantic date. However, they both run into a problem. They both want to give eachother surprise gifts, without Mordecai wanting CJ knowing and visa versa. Rigby and Eileen team up, after finding out that Mordecai and CJ are planning to surprise each other. Together, Eileen and Rigby set up a table with candles, along with the two gifts. After finding the table in surprise, they both are heart-warmed. However, Matchmaker McIntyre begins to ruin their plans. He shoots a "match-breaker" gun at CJ, and to CJ and his surprise, Mordecai pushes her out of the way causing him to fall off the broken deck. CJ angrily turns into a massive storm-cloud, striking McIntyre's hot-air balloon with lightning, thus causing a fire; exploding the submarine he was in. Shortly after, CJ finds Mordecai unconscious on the ground, moaning and sobbing in pain, thinking he died. Surprisingly, Mordecai awakens to CJ's delight, and he gives her his gift; a charm bracelet with the very first activities they did together. After a short romantic conversation, they share a kiss while the sun rises officially making them a real couple.
In the episode "Maxin' and Relaxin'", CJ meets and is well-liked by Mordecai's mom and dad, though he is initially apprehensive about her encountering his embarrassing mom and seeing home movies of his awkward youth. He is eventually convinced by his past selves that a cool lady like CJ can handle this, and that she would not be cool with someone who was a jerk to his mom. She eventually enjoys the home movies with him, and accepts several mixtapes he made in high school.
In the episode "Daddy Issues", Mordecai (along with Eileen and Rigby) persuades CJ to take on mini golf after she has giving up the sport over an incident with her father. However, when she participates in the Putterpalooza, she spots her father handing out autographs. When they converse, she could see that he is as egotistical and cocky as before and Mordecai, being the supportive boyfriend that he is, defends her and tell her father that the trash talk that he is giving her is "not cool". However, her father shuts him down when he called him a "sensitive guy" and that the only trophy he probably won was for crying. This enrages CJ so she signs the registration form and says that she would put her father in his place. During the game, you see Mordecai supporting her all the way; even when they hit the sudden death round. He happened to hear her scream and without hesitation he goes to save her from the monstrous gophers that were attacking her and her father; helping her win the Putterpalooza.
In "Lift With Your Back", there is a small part in the beginning of the episode where she hangs out with Mordecai, goes to the movies, and has Mordecai move her couch; all of this being a way to spend some time with her boyfriend. Unfortunately, this was at the expense of him sneaking out of work; leaving Rigby to cover for him.
In "Merry Christmas Mordecai", Eileen invites Mordecai and Rigby to her Sweater Party. She also mentions that Margaret would be coming for it; making Mordecai fearful of doing something he would regret. At the party, Mordecai tries his best to prevent CJ from seeing Margaret. But then when they officially meet, they do not remember the past incident until Mordecai refreshes their memory. When Margaret leaves, CJ is concerned whether Mordecai still has feelings for Margaret still. Mordecai replies that he doesn't and then they kiss. and Mordecai finally enjoys the party. As everyone starts kissing their dates, Mordecai goes to find CJ, but encounters Margaret instead. He explains everything about their breakup and his new girlfriend, and they finally lift tension. But then, in the middle of remembering the good times they had with each other, they wind up kissing each other. When they realizes this, it was too late because CJ had already saw what happen with Mordecai and Margaret. Heartbroken over what she had just witnessed, she runs out of Eileen's house and drives away before Mordecai could caught her.
In Sad Sax, Mordecai tries to get CJ to forgive him but with listening to Sad Sax Guy horrible advices, they backfire and CJ would walk away in disgust and she hit Mordecai in the head with a sign when he faked his death from getting hit by a bus. Then she sees Mordecai put up some lights on a soon-to-be demolished house telling how sorry he is and want to talk and CJ was impressive by this. CJ then visits Mordecai in the hospital when he got beat up by the construction workers and Mordecai honestly tells her that he used to like Margaret, but is now over her after the events of "Steak Me Amadeus" and are now just friends. CJ accepts his apology, a mistletoe is placed on the metal hospital rod and they kiss on the lips, rekindling their relationship.
In "1000th Chopper Flight Party" Cj declines her invitation to the 1000th Chopper Flight Party of Chopper 6 because she is volunteering to clean up a river. She urges Mordecai to go there and have fun, while he promises to save her cake, and thanks her for being the best girlfriend. She then shows up at the Party explaining that as one of the participants got exposed to one of the chemicals dumped in the river, and the clean-up drive had to come to a halt, leaving her free to come. Then when CJ sees Mordecai enjoying his chat with Margaret and then falling on Margaret's lap after seeing her sad, she wrongfully jumps to conlusions that Mordecai is cheating on her, and she uses her storm cloud ability once more wrecking the party. Mordecai fails to calm her with various environmental triggers giving more wrong impression. After the fact that Margaret has a boyfriend calms her, he tries to give her the promised cake piece, but she out of remorse, declines and leaves crying.
In "Not Great Double Date," CJ and Mordecai have loosened tension with Margaret, after she appeared to have a boyfriend for herself, and have a double date with Margaret and Del Hanlon to atone for wrecking her dad's party. At the date they seemed to be getting along well, until Margaret was forced to tell the truth to avoid the Kisscam. CJ leaves angrily, and Mordecai runs after her.
In "Dumped at the Altar", Mordecai say some words to CJ and he and she finally break up.
CJ and Eileen appear to become good friends in "Portable Toilet," when they have lunch together and team up to save Mordecai and Rigby from being destroyed in a portable toilet at a military shooting range. Eileen is even able to stop CJ from turning into a storm cloud when she starts to get upset about what's happened to Mordecai and Rigby. At the end of the episode, they have fun using the military satellite to blow up portable toilets together.
Also, in "Video 101" CJ, along with Mordecai and Rigby, help Eileen out with making a music video for her class. While Mordecai and Rigby slowly try and take over the whole project, CJ reminds Eileen that since this is her video, she should make it the way she wants to. This shows a little bit of support on her part, which is essential in a friendship. CJ also called Eileen, to make sure that the guys aren't getting in her way. CJ also notably brings coffee to Eileen's house on the morning that the project is due.
In "Real Date", Eileen and CJ plan to surprise Mordecai with a cake. However, things do not go as planned, so after bumping into each other, Eileen and Rigby both help Mordecai and CJ. They set up a table, along with the two gifts Mordecai and CJ were going to give each other. Thus revealing that she supports CJ's decision to be with Mordecai, and she will do anything to help her best friend.
Towards the end of the episode "Sad Sax", CJ has Eileen and Rigby over her house to watch a movie and eat pizza. Just from this small scene, you could see that Eileen, despite still having a friendship with Margaret, has no problem hanging out with CJ. This shows that even though there was some tension going on with CJ when it comes to Margaret and Mordecai, she still sees it fit to not to choose one friendship over the other.
However in the episode "I See Turtles", this issue is brought to CJ's attention when she overhears a conversation while they are on the beach. It was Eileen telling Rigby of how she wished that Margaret could be there to enjoy the sea turtles hatching with them. Since Margaret is Eileen's friend too, Eileen feels bad that she has to exclude Margaret when they hang out because CJ doesn't appreciate the kiss Margaret had with Mordecai. So after CJ hears that Eileen just wants them to be friends, she feels bad that Eileen is sad over this and decides to talk to Mordecai about this dilemma. Even though he states his opinion about it and sides with Eileen, their discussion doesn't get resolved because Mordecai spots the Youth Topia people doing something odd. Once they figure out that Youth Topia is using turtles to make themselves young, they are trapped in a cop car. After a few failed ideas of escape, CJ thinks of Eileen and how the turtles were so important to her, so she drops her resentment for Margaret and ends up calling her for help which turns out to be a successful plan that end with liberated turtles and a happy Eileen.
AcquaintancesYes Dude Yes". This is after Mordecai and CJ become good friends after Mordecai believes Margaret is engaged. Both women are angry when they find out that Mordecai accidentally invited them both to the same movie.
The next time we see them is in "Survival Skills"; in Mordecai's imagination.
CJ officially meets Margaret in "Merry Christmas Mordecai", while at Eileen's sweater party. They both are polite and respectful towards each other until Mordecai reminds CJ and Margaret of their rocky past; causing everyone to go quiet. Later, when CJ is in the bathroom, Margaret tells Mordecai that she didn't expect him to wait for her and that she is happy for him. However, Mordecai and Margaret accidentally kiss in front of CJ after reminiscing about the past. This leaves CJ heartbroken, causing her to flee the scene.
In "Sad Sax", one of S.S.G. suggestions for Mordecai to win back CJ was to have Margaret to talk to CJ and straighten everything out. However, this plan goes awry when CJ sees Mordecai hug Margaret in the park (after Margaret apologized to Mordecai for all the trouble she caused). This results in CJ driving off in disgust.
Even though CJ forgives Mordecai in the end, she still holds resentment towards Margaret until the episode "I See Turtles". It takes CJ and Mordecai being trapped in a cop car by a couple of Youth Topia members to make CJ put her resentment aside and contact Margaret so she could help save the turtles Eileen cares so much about. When Margaret is notified of the issue at hand, Margaret immediately arrives to the beach in her father's helicopter, and reports the sea turtle abusers. Once the whole incident is taken care of, CJ tells Eileen that she called Margaret for help. This causes Eileen to be filled with joy because it looks like CJ has cut the rift she had with Margaret. So to show how happy she was, Eileen forces them all to share an awkward group hug.
In "1000th Chopper Flight Party", CJ still has resentment on Margaret as briefly shown in the beginning of the episode. When CJ sees both Mordecai and Margaret board Chopper 6, laughing and having fun, she gets the wrong impression and she enrages into her storm cloud. Mordecai fails to calm CJ down, and the turbulences of the chopper keep making him give CJ wrong impressions. Margaret manages to calm CJ down by revealing that Del Hanlon of Sports TV Anchor is her boyfriend,as he comes to the party. CJ calms down and turns back to her normal form, but is now filled with remorse for nearly killing Margaret parents and worrying for nothing. CJ then leaves the party crying as Margaret, Mordecai, Eileen, and Del Hanlon watching her leave.
Margaret and CJ's acquaintanceship now remains in hiatus after this episode.
Carl Putter (Father)
In "Daddy Issues", CJ's father is revealed to be Carl Putter, a cloud-person like her who is a champion miniature golfer. CJ's full name is not "CJ Putter," however, as she explains that "Putter" is a stage name her father uses. Carl trained CJ to be great at miniature golf, but his highly competitive nature and constant teasing ruined her love of the sport. CJ goes up against him one-on-one in a miniature golf championship and finally beats him, earning his respect and overcoming her sense of inferiority.
CJ has the ability to turn into bad weather when she gets triggered angry or upset. She is shown to be able to make twisters, lightning, rain, and gale force winds when she is in this state. If she is just upset, she turns a dark brown-red color, a trait that is very similar to Benson.

But since her horn was still broken, it must have been in the shop for repairs or not in great condition, which could possibly explain why she was using a bike for transportation earlier (when she was not riding in Eileen's car or walking). However in later episodes in Season 6, she is seen driving a white 1983 Volvo 242.
