Leslie and Ann – Parks and Recreation
While Leslie is definitely more of the appreciative one in this relationship (some of her compliments are a little out there), Ann definitely loves Leslie and knows how to support her even from afar.
Cristina and Meredith – Grey’s Anatomy
Their relationship is summed up in three words: “you’re my person”. They’re true best friends and have been there through A LOT of drama together. They know each other inside and out and that makes true friendships.
Raven and Chelsea – That’s so Raven
Everyone needs a best friend to keep them sane, especially when they have a power like the ability to see the future! These two were always fun and kept each other on their toes. There was never a dull moment.
Jess and Cece – New Girl
Every cool girl needs a nerdy girl to keep her grounded and this is exactly the dynamic between these two. They’re hilarious, they’re beautiful. They’re simply friends to the end.
Poussey and Taystee – Orange is The New Black
Sometimes friends just find each other and it works. Sometimes those friends find each other inside a correctional facility where they’re forced to deal with each other every day. But we think these two would have found their way to each other anyway.
Abbi and Illana – Broad City
Watching these two get up to their crazy antics is more than enough to make you miss your best friend terribly. They’re fun, they’re zany and they’re just a little out there. Who wouldn’t want to have a show with their best friend?
Cher and Dionne - Clueless
They're both fun, fierce and have great fashion sense. No wonder they're BFFs!
Lorelai and Rory - Gilmore Girls
Didn't you wish your mom was as cool as Lorelai? Or that Rory was your best friend? I know I did. These women were strong, intelligent, funny, and could drink coffee like nobody's business.
Max and Caroline - 2 broke girls
Caroline, a former rich girl gone broke, and Max, a broke girl who's always been broke, seem to have very little in common, but their quirky dynamic develops into a rather good friendship.
Edina and Patsy - Absolutely Fabulous
They're loud. They're silly. They drink and smoke too much, but they're funny as hell because they're absolutely fabulous, dahling.
Minny and Aibileen - The Help
Nothing makes a better friendship than two women who stand together to face discrimination, and these two have seen more than their fair share.
Thelma and Louise - Thelma and Louise
Louise shoots a man who is trying to rape Thelma and then the two go on the run fleeing from the police and finding themselves. They love and support each other until the very end.
Maura and Kate - Sisters
These sisters are two peas in a pod while being complete opposites of each other. They love each other completely and have each other's backs.
Tia and Tamera - Sister, Sister
These twin girls might have been separated at birth and raised by different people for 14 years, but they're as close as siblings who have been together since day one.
Ashburn and Mullins - The Heat
How often do you see a buddy cop movie with two pretty awesome female leads? Yeah, never. Not only are they both pretty badass, but they also form the kind of bond that makes you feel all warm inside.
Monica and Rachel - Friends
They laughed, they cried, they managed not to kill each other in the 8 years they lived together. This friendship is as real as fictional friendships can get.
Jess and Jules - Bend it Like Beckham
Jess and Jules bond over their favourite sport, football, after Jules spots Jess and her mean ball skills in the park. The two are attached at the hip, and even though they part ways for a while, they end up right back where they belong - by each other's side.
Xena and Gabrielle - Xena: Warrior Princess
Xena is Gabrielle's mentor, princess, inspiration (and some say lover). Over the series Gabrielle develops from a shy farm girl to a kickass warrior princess.
Rhonda and Muriel - Muriel's Wedding
When you find that one friend who is willing to dress up and perform an Abba song with you, that's not just true friendship, that's true love.
Romy and Michelle - Romy and Michele's High School Reunion
Besties who fake successful careers and choreograph complicated dance routines together, stay together.
Honourable mention: Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, Sophia - The Golden Girls
Yes, I know they aren't a duo, but the Golden Girls was a great example of how a story about a group of female friends can be a positive and very funny one.
