Is there anything better than seeing Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart palling around with Elmo wearing ridiculous bowler hats? Or watching comedy queens Tina Fey and Amy Poehler slay together on Golden Globes? How about knowing that Han and Chewie would die to protect each other? And that Sancho Panza was always there for Don Quixote, no matter how crazy things got? A great friendship makes us better people: more loyal, more true, more generous and funny and more able to face the world.
