1. Stand by Me (1986)
~ = Chris & Gordie

(Clearly Chris and Gordie are best friends. They share many moments talking about things that they don't tell to Vern and Teddy. Chris is like a brother and a father to Gordie.
"Wish the hell I was your dad. You wouldn't be goin' around talkin' about takin' these stupid shop courses if I was. It's like God gave you something, man, all those stories you can make up. And He said, "This is what we got for ya, kid. Try not to lose it." Kids lose everything unless there's someone there to look out for them. And if your parents are too fucked up to do it, then maybe I should.")
