Rainer Shine is a weatherman that Phil and Haley meet in "Weathering Heights". Phil tries to make friends with Rainer but ends up accidentally inviting him to ask Haley out on a date which ends in Rainer and Haley dating, much to Phil's displeasure.

In "Five Minutes" Rainer proposes to Haley. She accepts, but the engagement lasts less than five minutes since they both start having doubts after Rainer realizes that he was wrong about that night's weather forecast.


  • His name is a pun on the phrase, "rain or shine".
