9 Literary Friendships That Will Definitely Show Up On Your English Quiz

ABC/Once Upon a Time


Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Friendship Type: Good Cop, Bad Cop

Jekyll is a brilliant, respected scientist, Hyde is a horrifying brute with a violent side—and plot twist: they're actually the same guy. Is this relationship screaming for a Netflix dark comedy about roomies, or is it just me? Sure, these guys talk sh*t about each other, but ultimately they need one another (at least for the other half of the rent). Throw in the betrayal, mystery, and this ridiculous(ly hilarious) song from PBS classic Arthur the Aardvark, and you've got a hit series on your hands.
