Milo Murphy

Main article: Sara and Milo's Relationship

Sara and her younger brother are close. They are both fans of the Doctor Zone franchise and have a caring sibling relationship. She tends to be pretty worried that Murphy's Law will mess things up, but she doesn't let that get in the way of hanging out ("The Doctor Zone Files").


Diogee is the family dog. Like the rest of the family, Sara takes responsibility in sending him home. She ordered him a special food bowl off the internet, but found, upon arrival, that the words 'Greatest dog in the world' were printed in Chinese. ("Missing Milo")


Zack Underwood and Melissa Chase

Sara is warm towards her brother's friends. She enjoys doing various activities with them ("The Doctor Zone Files").

Dr. Zone fan club

Sara often hangs out with fellow Dr. Zone fans, such as Kris, Wally, and Josh ("The Doctor Zone Files", "The Wilder West").

Orton Mahlson

Since the creator and star of her favorite show is a local, Sara occasionally watches him in his home from behind a tree on his property. She is a huge fan, even going as far as to call herself unworthy when he stopped her from forgetting Milo's backpack ("Missing Milo").

Balthazar Cavendish and Vinnie Dakota

Although she doesn't know them very well, Sara is on friendly terms with Cavendish and Dakota. She first met them when she went to their stand to buy some pistachios, and tends to connect them strongly to the main characters of Dr. Zone due to their strange outfits and her obsession with the show. Eventually, Milo introduced them to her, and she went on to help them save the world from pistachion invasion alongside Milo, Melissa, and Zack ("Missing Milo").

Love Interest


Neal is Sara's crush, and in her own words, 'someone she's been secretly pining over for months'. She tends to call him "Neal from the comic shop" Around the house, and she spent their lunch together analyzing his every word and anxiously panicking over whether or not it was a date. Unbeknownst to her, he was having much the same thought process, and the two of them relaxed a little after Neal's sister saw them and asked if he was with "Sara from the comic shop". At the end of that adventure, they confess their feelings for one another and watch the sunset together on top of the hill where the sled had stopped ("Love Toboggan").
