- "My best friend is funny, intelligent, creative, beautiful and successful and very kind. And she's also impulsive, frustrating, complicated, childish, but I would not have her any other way. And the best part about Brooke Davis is that she always puts friends first, so if you are ever in any kind of trouble, now you know who to call. I can't think of anyone I would rather have watching over you."
