Philbert Healy, or more known as Phil, is a love interest of Mark and cousin of Penny in Coming Out On Top. He is a marine fresh out of boot camp and is being considered for Recon program once he graduates from infantry school. His father, Donald is running for state senate.  

Personality Edit

During his childhood Phil was rather nerdy and played a lot of D&D. He also developed a fondness for obscure trivia through his father's collection of military history books. Although he considers most of his former activities trivial and wasteful after boot camp, he still hold a distinct fondness for trivia. At one point he can even admit to being aroused by someone's ability to answer trivia questions correctly.  

Appearance Edit

Phil has cropped hair with a slim muscular build and medium dark skin. His body is described as being solid as a statue, attributed to his boot camp training regimen. He often wears a brown vest and white shirt with a black tie. On causal occasions he wears a red polo tee.


Penny mentions her cousin Phil as soon as Mark comes out to her and Ian. She immediately gets the idea of setting the boys up.

Eventually Penny gets the idea of all three of them having lunch together the day Phil comes from boot camp, to which Mark reluctantly agrees. However when the day comes Penny finds herself busy and asks Mark to pick her cousin at the airport for her. The meeting between Mark and Phil does not goes smoothly, Mark puts his foot in his mouth several times and Phil acts cold and dismissive the entire time.

Later Penny asks Mark to accompany her to her uncle's, Phil's father, fundraiser party. Mark agrees, despite not liking the idea of meeting Phil again. Before the event Mark confesses his nervousness to Ian and he gives Mark advice on how to impress the "rich and powerful" along with lending Mark his top hat for him to wear.

At the party Mark meets Donald and his aide Patrick. He bumps into Phil who disapproves of his choice of wear. They are interrupted by Mr. and Ms. Walker a couple of key donors to Donald's campaign who Mark's manages to impress by following Ian's advice. The Walkers then introduce the boys to their daughter Violet.

Later Phil asks Mark to accompany him and Violet to a ballet concert because the Walkers were impressed by him and Phil has to court them to help his father's campaign. Mark accepts. While on the way to the ballet, Violet makes Phil change course to a night club, unbestknow to him. She leaves the car and runs into the club, forcing the boys to go after her. Mark finds Violet and while he is talking to her he's interrupted by Knutson and Zelinski, two of Phil's colleagues from booty camp. Phil joins them and Knutson and Zelinski tease him for being in a club during his leave. Phil's dismisses them and asks Violet to come back to the car. Violet defers to Mark, Mark defends Phil's actions which makes Violet cry. The mood killed, no one goes to the ballet. Phil drops Violet at home instead. On the way to Mark's apartment a clearly warmer Phil asks for Mark to help him train for a swimming test, which Mark accepts.

Mark and Phil go to the beach against compete against each other by swimming. Later they go to a sports bar and have fun until they bump into Knutson and Zelinski. They harrass Phil for being gay making him leave the bar. The boys return to the car where Mark offers his support for Phil, and he drops him off at home.

Later Phil calls Mark to tell he's going out with Violet again because the Walkers insisted and Mark tagging along would be the only way they would be able to see each other that week. Mark accompanies them. Eventually they go to the same sports bar they went the previous week. The boys enter a trivia contest and win. When the night is over Phil drops Mark at home and they have sex.

Eventually Mark attends the last of Donald's fundraisers to see Phil again. Phil later shows up at Mark's graduation party and asks him if he'll miss him. Phil has to leave for Recon so him and Mark star a long distance relationship

Relationship Edit

Mark Edit

Mark was introduced by Penny when Mark was asked to fetch him at the airport. Phil was not impressed by Mark at first due to a combination of Mark making a comment regarding Phil's race and Phil's own disconnection with civilian life while having lunch with Penny at Honey Restaurant.

Phil only later warmed up to him after sending Violet back from the nightclub and invited him for a swim at the beach.

Penny Edit

Penny is very close to Phil as they grow up together. When he was young they accidentally blew up their garage when they poured water on the sodium fire they'd created. Even after his time in boot camp their relationship is still shown to be strong, although Phil tries to get Penny to stop calling him "Philbert". At the end, however, he gives her permission to call him "Philbert" again and admits that he missed hearing it from her.

Ian Edit

Ian only encountered Phil when he came back to the apartment after a late night when Phil and Mark decided to have sex. Depending on who is on top, Ian may or may not caught them in action.

Violet Edit

Violet is the daughter of his family friend, the Walkers, who are also large donors to his father's campaign. Phil and Violet met at the fundraiser and do not get along well. They are asked to watch a ballet one night but Violet took the opportunity to go a club to meet guys.


  • Phil's zodiac sign is Capricorn.
  • Phil was the president of the chess club and plays the bassoon.
  • He is the middle child of the family, with an older sister in business school and a younger brother still in high school.
  • His mother is a former ballerina, currently having a debilitating illness that keeps her mostly at home.
