Valentine's Day is coming up—and sure, everyone gets excited for the excuse to bust out flowers and chocolate for most romantic night of the year. But don't forget to save a little love for February 13th: Galentine's Day.
A day for celebrating the female friendships in our lives, Galentine's Day encourages the single, taken and everything in between to honor the friendships that keep us afloat and sane in even the roughest times.
To that end, we celebrate the best pairs of pals from television, representing the best in strong and relatable female friendships:
Lucy and Ethel - I Love Lucy
One of the most adored best friends in television history, Lucy and Ethel remain (in reruns) the ultimate best friend duo. Always down for a good practical joke, the pair paved the way for strong female friendships on TV.
Samantha, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte - Sex and the City
When you think of TV best friends, these women are first on your list. These four prove you don't have to be on the same page all the time to be good friends. You just have to support each other.
Leslie and Ann - Parks and Recreation
Leslie and Ann are a classic pair—a classic pair that features some of the best nicknames ever. Of course, these nicknames came primarily from Leslie, including:
"Oh, Ann, you beautiful, naïve, sophisticated newborn baby."
"Ann, you beautiful spinster."
"Oh, Ann, you beautiful, rule-breaking moth."
“Oh Ann, you beautiful tropical fish.”
Poussey and Taystee - Orange is the New Black
These two are in prison together and yet, somehow manage to make it look fun. Prison, you guys.
Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, Sophia - Golden Girls
Talk about showing the power of lifelong female friendship. As the theme song says: "Thank you for being a friend."
Meredith and Cristina - Grey's Anatomy
The women who taught us to look for "our person" and how to stick with them.
Abbi and Ilana - Broad City
Nothing sums up the quirks of young friendship quite like Abbi and Ilana's relationship, which remains true no matter how ridiculous their lives may get.
