14 Times TV Comedies Perfectly Summed Up Love

Romantic relationships are often the emotional core of TV comedies. Sitcom romances are sometimes even more satisfying and suspenseful than those  featured on more dramatic shows, perhaps because they feel more unexpected.

The combination of the characters’ relatability, the slow burning will-they-won’t-they dynamics, and the humor and vulnerability behind the emotionally charged relationships makes the romances seem more authentic, accessible, and memorable.

From the enthralling entanglements of Friends to the quirky on-again, off-again roller coaster of New Girl’s Nick and Jess, these romantic quotes from comedic TV characters are sure to give you butterflies and make you say, “Awww!”
