Linda is a girl at John Adams High who dated Eric. In Teacher's Bet, someone at the mall called her a racial slur based on her Japanese ancestory, causing her to break into tears. Watching Eric comfort her, Cory became inspired to read Anne Frank and make a lecture about prejudice. Later, she became a cheerleader, much to Eric's joy. While she is dating Eric, she becomes friends with Morgan, who announces that she likes her when Linda says that she is '15 and three quarters'. Morgan later tries to cheer Linda up when she is upset.
