The Excess Express waitress is a Toad who works on the Excess Express in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Her name is never revealed. During the Mario team's trip to Poshley Heights in their quest for the Garnet Star, her Shell Earrings are stolen by Doopliss (disguised as Zip Toad). The Shadow Sirens planned to mix the Shell Earrings with Toodles's Gold Ring and some Nitro Honey Syrup to set off an explosion, destroying the train and fulfilling the "sticky, yummy doom" Mario had been warned of. After Mario and friends catch him, their plan fails. The waitress is also the first passenger to be rescued by Mario when the Smorgs attack the train. Mario can optionally return the Shell Earrings to the waitress, for which she will give Mario a Star Piece as a reward. She remains on the Excess Express for the rest of the game.

The waitress's Shell Earrings were given to her by her ex-boyfriend, an unnamed Squeek Mario can speak to in Podley's Place. The waitress often uses star symbols in her text and speaks in a hyperactive, line-by-line sequence. According to Goombella, she probably isn't a very good waitress, but likely attracts many men.


  • That's the waitress of the Excess Express. Kinda spacey. Think she's an OK waitress? Probably not... but guys always go for girls like this, don't they? Why is that, Mario?


  • She is the only Toad with hearts on her cap in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. This resembles Vanna T. from Paper Mario.
