When Agnes makes an appearance, she is usually controlling some aspect of Skinner's life, often snapping "Seymour!" in order to get his attention. Agnes shares a troubled relationship with her son Seymour, always neurotic and often bordering on psychosis. Examples of their worrying relationship include Agnes having slashed Seymour's inflatable bath pillow as part of an argument, covering up "her half of the television" with cardboard to spite Seymour, spending her Friday nights in the house with Seymour drawing silhouettes, forcing him to perform a "daily mole check" and conducting arguments in which she simply screeches until she gets her way. When Seymour is out of the house, Agnes phones him regularly demanding to be taken out of the bath, etc. Seymour has been seen commenting that Agnes hid his car keys as a punishment for talking to a woman on the phone. Her overall persona is neurotic and controlling in the extreme.

Long gone. You're Gimbel's!" and "Go spend time with your floozy... She knows I'm kidding! (whispering) I'm not kidding!"

However, when the real Seymour (voiced by Martin Sheen), returns to Springfield, she not only rejects him, but violently opposes his usurping Armin's place in her life. With a cutting "You don't need me!," she and the other Springfielders (whom he has also rubbed the wrong way) run him out of town on a rail, and orders Armin to move back into her house.
