Added DiffLines:

* Ship Tease: While [[VitriolicBestBuds Kraus and Benson]] are never in a relationship (and react with horror at the thought), other characters frequently assume they are, and in a few episodes they have to pretend to be a couple- in the fourth season accidentally getting married! A fifth season episode has them convincing their colleagues of a secret affair between them, to which Pete replies that he suspected it all along.
