I spotted this topic on Nerdy By Nature and Hello. It’s B. and decided to take my own swipe at it. With so many movies and television shows either focusing on a romantic relationship or dude-ships, really fantastic girl buddies really light up the screens.
Five: Garcia, Emily and JJ – Criminal Minds
Going a little off track here starting out with a trio, but let’s be real, these ladies were at their peak when they were all together. My favorite opener from the entire series will always be the episode where some random dude hits on Emily at a bar, and tries to pick them up by telling them he works at the FBI. This trio very quickly puts him in his place, showing their own badges after he tells them “It’s Classified”, and then they share a laugh, and you know these characters feel such incredible affection for each other.
Four: Ruth and Bettina – Six Feet Under
Despite the fact that Kathy Bates’s Bettina only appears in 10 of the 63 episodes of Six Feet Under, she might have been the very best part of Ruth’s storylines over five seasons. When Ruth and Bettina are together, they both light up, and their wildly different personalities complement each other perfectly.
Three: Liz and Maria, Roswell
Sure, Roswell was a love story first, and sci-fi thriller second, but I would argue that it’s also a high school bestie fest. Every girl should have a friend who will help her hide the fact that her boyfriend is an alien.
Two: Cece and Hillary – Beaches
For women of a certain age, Beaches was probably our first glance into friendship that lasts a lifetime. Not only was it oh-so-precious, it was also very real – Cece and Hillary drift apart and crash back together, but they always love each other with everything they have to give.
One: Meredith and Cristina – Grey’s Anatomy
Despite their soap-opera lives, these two are Squad Goals, and a big part of the reason I watched Grey’s for as long as I did. The relationship between these two is often so raw, but it’s so very very important. I hope everyone is lucky enough to have a person like Meredith or Cristina (depending on which one you personally identify with more).
