Mlep(clay)nos (the clay is silent) is a reccurring character, twice encountered by Jake and Amy when they are assigned door duty. They then see him again on their wedding day in the Season Five finale.

Throughout the Series Edit

Season One Edit

In the Pilot, Mlepnos is seen opening the door to apartment 3C in a building where Jake and Amy are investigating a murder. When shown a picture of the victim, Mlepnos takes the photo, thanks the detectives, and closes his door before they can finish their questioning.

In Operation: Broken Feather, he is seen answering the door to a room at the Prentiss Hotel where Jake and Amy are investigating a string of hotel robberies. Both detectives are visibly annoyed to encounter him again. While questioning Mlepnos, Jake notices music coming from inside the room and soon joins the potential witness in singing and dancing to a song from his home country of Leirkrakeegovnia.

Excerpt from Leirkrakeegovnian celebration song about a dog losing its virginity:

Meil on fun

Me teeme asju
mis on ponev
Oleme sobrad kasu
The actual language of the song is Estonian, and when translated, the lyrics say:

We have fun
We do things
what is exciting
We are friends benefit
The last line 'Oleme sobrad kasu' is an incorrect and direct translation of 'We are friends with benefits'.

Season Five Edit

In Jake and Amy, Mlepnos is hired by Hitchcock and Scully as Jake and Amy's wedding band, but pretends he isn't Mlepnos and that he has never met them (Or he didn't recognize them).

Trivia Edit

  • In the Pilot, he mentions his name has a silent "clay" in it, spelling it as M-L-E-P-Clay. This may be a mispronunciation of the letter "k".
  • In the credits for Operation: Broken Feather, his name is spelled as "Melpnos", while in the credits for Jake and Amy, his name is spelled as "Melipnos".
