Tinka: But I don't like you. And I've always hope you do not like me.
CeCe: Come on Tinka, we tease each other but that's what we do. We're frenemies. And the first part of frenemies is friend.
Tinka: Yes, and second part is enemies.

CeCe: Let me ask you a question. Do you ever worry that if you spend too much time together that you're not individuals?

Tinka: We are individuals. We're just individuals together.

CeCe: Can't believe I'm about to say it, but I think I just learned something from you.
Tinka: Weenie-corn? CeCe: No thanks, Tink. Actually, I have to go talk to a friend... about being a friend.
