    2. Because Joan's relationship advice was always solid....

    3. Because everyone needs a person like Maya in their life.

    4. Because Toni was so unabashedly in love with her self and you loved it.

    Yup, here for it.

    5. Because you kinda wished you could live life as free-spirited as Lynn.

    (Even though she could never manage to actually hold down a job, despite all those degrees...)
