Mr Stein is one half of Doucette & Stein, the law firm at which Will works.
Mr Stein first appears in the fifth season episode Boardroom and a Parked Place, having been absent due to working at the London office (although it is revealed that he was actually in a mental institution).
He is noticeably absent-minded and has short-term memory loss, needing to be constantly reminded of his identity and surroundings. He also has a tendency to break out into song.
In Sex, Losers and Videotape, he has a brief love affair with Karen.
- Gene Wilder won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor for this role.
I recognize heartache. My wife just left me. Well, it was fifteen years ago, but I'm reliving it because of these new meds I'm taking. — Sex, Losers and Videotape
