-->'''Mackenzie''': This [football] team in a juggernaut [[spoiler: Jenna (Darabond)]]. So like it or not, they're going to state. And when they win state, everyone's gonna want to hang out with them. And who will they be standing next to? The brand new, better than ever Overland Park Cheer Squad.
-->'''Shay''': Yeah, [[GladIThoughtOfIt because when they win, everybody's going to think they're cool, so we'll be cool too!]]

-->'''Mackenzie''': OK, that's because ''I got this''.
-->'''Shay''': Well, [[spoiler: as the Head Cheerleader]], I feel like I should have the final word.
-->'''Mackenzie''': You know what Shay, you're really letting the [[spoiler: Head Cheerleader]] thing go to your head. I'm clearly better at bitching people out so just let me handle it, okay?

** Lelouch and Suzaku also have quite a bit of this, especially when they were kids, and in the audio dramas for both pairs.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/{{K}}'', Saruhiko and Misaki, whenever they're not at each others' throats. The audio dramas add a lot more of this between them.

Two characters who seem very comfortable with each other to the point that it seems like they have been married for a long time, though obviously it doesn't apply to couples who actually ''have'' been together for a long time. Usually it is done through constant arguments with each other, as only people who are so closely bonded can have such open communication between them ([[VitriolicBestBuds whether they will admit it or not]]). Someone is apt to comment that they behave just like a married couple.

Typically the argument will be a back and forth of opinions, such as a CavemenVsAstronautsDebate. It is likely to get heated but neither of them are willing to just leave. In extreme cases it might start getting ugly with insults about personal issues being flung about. If not an argument based, it is often tied with HeterosexualLifePartners where domestic issues are a common topic.

topic. The two bickering characters in question do not have to be romantically involved with each other as the trope can apply to any two individuals such as best friends, siblings, military comrades, and a couple of strangers who don't know much about each other and are not romantically or sexually involved but their situations make them bicker as if they knew each other for a long time

** And this will almost always happen if two or more incarnations of the Doctor meet each other, but special mention goes to the Third and Second Doctors, who appeared together twice onscreen, and bickered as if it was the end of the world.
*** Creator/JonPertwee and Creator/PatrickTroughton probably liked doing that so much, that every time they met each other at a convention, they would pretend to hate each other and (drumroll please!) bicker like an old married couple.

* ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' has Destiny and Bailey, a pair of "neighbours" who frequently bickers over random stuffs, but works together very well when they need to, and Bailey's [[SuperSenses echolocation]] serves as Destiny's guide (because she's really nearsighted).

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': One of the biggest running gags of the show is Joey and Chandler arguing like this. This is [[TakenUpToEleven]] when they get a chick and a duck, often treating the said bird-pets like their own children.
-->'''Joey:''' Anyways, I gotta go change. I'm meeting some of the cast for drinks. [note]He's an actor, so he obviously has cast-mates.[/note]\\
