* InterclassFriendship: Joe and Blair are the VitriolicBestBuddies type. Joe comes from a single home from the Bronx while Blair comes from old money family. The two were the most likely to bicker with one another amongst the four girls with many jokes directed at their social status. Despite that, the two ended up being very close to one another. This was best demonstrated in a episode that had the two going back home and each of them hanging out with a old friend. At first the two were excited to get away from each other. But after learning their old friends bad personalities, they realized internally that they were actually good friends.
