Remy Boudreau has always tried to be the good guy, but that was never enough for his father, Clayton. Remy had wanted to be a musician, but his father wanted him to be an athlete. After an injury made this more unlikely, their relationship grew more strained. However, they found some common ground when Remy discovered that his father had been a jazz musician, a fact that Clayton asked Remy to keep a secret. After a quarrel with his sister Mel over her relationship with Rick Bauer, Remy moved in with Bill and Marah Lewis and became a perennial, though well-meaning, third wheel in the relationship's among Springfield's younger couples. It was also around this time that he fell for Tammy Layne Winslow, Unfortunately, she was in love with Jonathan Randall and he seemed condemned to playing her white knight despite his best efforts. After Tammy's death, Remy went off the deep end, almost beating a suspect to death and issuing threats. He was then suspended from the Springfield Police force and continued his self-destructive behavior for a while. Currently, Cristina and him are getting a divorce—though both of them are hesitating to do so. He aced his MCAT with a score of 37 and was admitted to Johns Hopkins Medical School, though he will remain an Emergency Medical Technician.
