Serena van der Woodsen

Gossip Girl: The Complete Series
Gossip Girl: The Complete Series

S is the definition of cool, calm and collected. Having some rowdy teenage years, you can bet Serena would be up for a wild night on the town. But Serena would also cuddle next to you on the couch eating Ben & Jerry’s while watching The Notebook. And did I mention what an awesome closet you’d get to hit up?

Francis Underwood

House of Cards: Season 2
House of Cards: Season 2

Let’s be real, folks, Francis Underwood is a scary dude. BUT, having him as a best friend could also be a major asset. You’d learn all about the inner workings of the government, and being tight with the Prez would have its perks. Just don’t sleep with him or take a trip to your local subway station, and you’re in the clear.

Jessica Day

New Girl: Season 2
New Girl: Season 2

Everyone needs a cheerleader of a friend, and Jess is that girl. Her songs might annoy you or maybe embarrass you a tad, but you can definitely count on Jess to keep a smile on your face. She’s loyal, quirky and a great drinking companion. I mean who wouldn’t want to play a game of “True American”?

Jim Halpert

The Office: Season 7 [Blu-ray]
The Office: Season 7 [Blu-ray]

We all need a work bff — someone to spill the office drama to, and to share a mutual hate for the overzealous boss. Jim can make the unbearable times bearable, and that’s pretty much all you could ever hope for when trying to make it through another 9-5. Well, a little office romance wouldn’t hurt either.

Samantha Jones

Sex and the City: The Movie (Two-Disc Special Edition)
Sex and the City: The Movie (Two-Disc Special Edition)

Samantha has been there and done, well practically everyone with a 212 area code. She’d be a great friend to trade sex tips with, and is all ears for the nitty gritty details. You want a reservation at Babbo? SJ’s got you covered. And even on a bad hair day, Samantha will make sure to tell you how fabulous you are. TC mark
