Ah, Valentine's Day. A day filled with commercialized love, candy, and spending time with your +1.

Because whether you're rebelling against the Galactic Empire, making bacon pancakes, or fighting Voldemort, you need your pals. Here's our tribute to some of the best dynamic duos in movies and television to help celebrate the love we've got for our pals.
