Played by ANDREA SANDERS, EMILY MOWBRAY & CAROLYN LAMBOURN
A trio of singing and morale-boosting cheerleaders, Lips, Dimples & Teeth – known as the Smile – initially appear as the entourage of Billy-Boy and the Jackals, lending weight to his confrontation with Lex concerning the undercutting of the Jackal’s prices in favour of the Orphans. There has been very little love lost between Lex and Billy-Boy, and the Mall Rat can barely deny the charges, simply stating that the Orphans had a better product. Though they mostly tease Lex in song, there also seems to be more to the Smile than just their vocals, as they ask Billy-Boy permission to ‘strike’, each of them taking a martial arts pose.
Billy-Boy however backs down, and Lips, Dimples and Teeth withdraw.
Spotting Salene out on the streets on her own, the Smile give chase, but the Mall Rat is rescued by May, who quickly conceals her out of sight. They soon head back to the Mall to confront Lex, stating that someone had murdered Billy-Boy, and Lex is the prime suspect. Lex denies having anything to do with it, lamenting that he wished it could have been him.
An all-out brawl is quickly broken up.
Later, KC encounters the Smile singing at the local Casino which Jago is the bouncer for. They tell the Mall Rat that they have left the Jackals due to their lack of appreciation for their musical talents. Seizing the opportunity, KC inquires about booking them for the upcoming wedding within the Mall, and that he will manage them. The Smile sing at the joint wedding between Salene and Ryan, and Lex and Tai San.
