1. Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation
"Ma'am, next time we speak...we shall be dancing on the grave of a possum.”
"You're like a man-genius with a taut, narrow frame, like a sexy elf king."
2. Dinah Laurel Lance from Arrow.
Pros of being friends with Laurel Lance: She’s a lawyer so if you ever get in legal trouble, she’d be handy. Also, she’s politically active and cares about the disenfranchised so she would motivate you to stay true to your personal convictions and remind you of who you really are. Plus, she has really cute clothes.
Cons of being friends with Laurel Lance: I feel like hanging around Laurel would probably increase your chances of being kidnapped by a corrupt kingpin and held for ransom or dangled off a building or something.
3. Jessica Day from New Girl
Favorite quotes: “I mean you're like aging ballerina, child chess prodigy, professional magician crazy.”
“I like moving slow. I like being weird and taking my time. I'm not like you. I don't just jump in the potato sack with the first potato that I meet with diabetes!”
4. Olivia Benson from Law and Order: SVU
Favorite quotes: “You did the one thing you're supposed to do when somebody threatens you; survive.”
Fin: “Who's side are you on?”
Benson: “The victim's. Which is where we should be.”
5. Rayna James from Nashville
Pros: Famous and talented. Older than me and would probably give great advice, especially about things I’ll probably be dealing with in the next few years, like motherhood. Good taste in music.
Cons: Busy, has a lot of political problems, is really stressed out, complicated past with ex-boyfriend/bandmate.
