Every great character needs to have a confidant; a best friend who is there to support their every decision, whether good or bad, and to be their sounding board for everything and anything.
From the bad-ass to the bromance, this Throwback Thursday we're looking at some of the besties that you wished you'd had.
Check them out!
Sookie St. James, Gilmore Girls
Always there for Lorelai with a shoulder to cry on and something to eat, Sookie was the stability in Lorelai's world. She helped Lorelai make some of her biggest life-altering decisions while providing many laughs along the way. Sookie would give you great advice about marriage, motherhood, cooking, and how to get rid of several garbage bags full of pot.
Christopher Turk, Scrubs
Roommates, co-workers, and so much more, JD and Turk were silly, goofy, and inseparable. The staff and patients at Sacred Heart often referred to them as a couple. Their friendship is unrivaled...it's true guy love between two guys. We'd want Turk around for the laughs alone, but his loyalty and sensitive side make him the perfect combo for a bromance.
Kimmy Gibbler, Full House
Every 90's sitcom needed a wacky neighbor, and every responsible teenage girl on TV needed a less responsible best friend, a yang to their yin. Kimmy Gibbler was both. If Kimmy was our BFF now, we'd surely have a closet full of brightly colored clothes... she'd never have given up her signature styles, even as they became fashion don'ts.
Francie Calfo, Alias
While her best friend Sydney Bristow was off working covert missions for the CIA, an unsuspecting Francie was home, supporting her BFF every step of the way. Francie gave Sydney a completely normal friendship, something Sydney needed in her dangerous and hectic secret life. And honestly, who wouldn't want a bestie who could cook? Delicious dinners all the time!
Jack McPhee, Dawson's Creek
Jen never had a lot of female friends, and was always a bit of an outcast. Jack, a newly out-of-the-closet outcast himself, became her rock for support, laughs, advice, and eventually, in the ultimate show of friendship, the man who raised her daughter. Bonus: he wrote poetry, and could easily talk sports, two perfect ingredients in a bestie.
Landry Clarke, Friday Night Lights
When Matt rocketed to the top as the quarterback of the Dillon Panthers, he thankfully had Landry to keep him centered. Landry was always there for Matt, helping him care for his grandmother, and offering him unhelpful advice with a sense of humor. And let's face it... everyone wanted a friend who was in a band, even if that band wasn't very good.
