5. The L Word’s Joyce Wischnia, Esq., and Law & Order‘s former New York Assistant D.A. Serena Southerlyn
Where they meet: A Lambda Legal cocktail party in Ft. Lauderdale
How they fall in love: Still recuperating from her spring break antics with some frisky coeds, vacationing cougar Joyce Wischnia (Jane Lynch) finally spends an evening doing business with the grown-ups. There she meets the still unemployed Serena Southerlyn (Elisabeth Röhm), and the two discover they have more than just litigiousness in common.
A former employee of The Man, Southerlyn digs Wischnia’s suit-and-tie look. And Wischnia, a seasoned veteran of love, knows that nothing turns her crank more than a hot blonde with a tight skirt and a prevailing sense of righteous indignation.
6. Loving Annabelle‘s teen lesbian jailbait Annabelle and Foxfire‘s teen bad grrl Margret "Legs" Sadovsky
Where they meet: At the 7-11
How they fall in love: Lonely and missing her recently incarcerated teacher/lover, Annabelle (Erin Kelly) straps on her acoustic guitar and hitches a ride to the local convenience store for some smokes. Imagine her surprise when a beautiful stranger walks in and expertly swipes a couple of Slim Jims right out from under the shopkeeper’s nose.
Legs (Angelina Jolie) gives Annabelle a knowing wink, and before you can say "juvie," the two are sharing some pilfered tallboys by a campfire in the woods.
One thing leads to another, and by the end of the night Annabelle and Legs are sporting new prison-style tattoos (reading "Simone" and "Maddy," respectively) and hatching a plan to jack a Winnebago and get out of town. Annabelle plays seedy lesbian bars across the country while Legs sells Annabelle’s homemade CDs (and the occasional dime bag) to help support them. The girls fall in love, Annabelle gets a record deal, and eventually becomes a rich and famous indie rocker.
Hey, it worked for Jewel.
