Heartwarming / Now and Then

Go To

  • Teeny and especially Chrissy make a Heartwarming Moment in the attic after Roberta has a breakdown about her mother and the truth about Johnny, and Sam tells the others about her parents' divorce:
    Teeny: Screw 'em. You guys have us.
    Chrissy: I say we make a pact here and now. We're here for each other, always. No matter what happens in life. If Teeny goes off to Hollywood or I marry a rich doctor... we remember this day and this pact. When we need a friend we're there for each other. We can count on it. No matter what.

  • Teeny mentioning that she had been sending Crazy Pete a Chrismas card with some money in it every year.
