36. Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham), Gilmore Girls
Fast-talking, pop culture-referencing, coffee-drinking Lorelai Gilmore was the queen of Stars Hollow. And for Gilrmore Girl‘s seven seasons, she was the queen of our hearts. How could we resist a woman who’s finest hour involved a fried chicken eating contest? Answer: We couldn’t.
We’ll be honest: We didn’t really know what a succubus was until Bo walked her leather ensembles into our lives. She’s searching for the truth of her identity, but she’s also searching for love. We can’t help her with the first thing, but we know the answer to the second one: Dr. Lauren.
34. Jenny Hartmann (Lucy Scherer), Hand aufs Herz
Sometimes when you throw a shovelful of dirt in a girl’s face and that girl botches up your essay on Martin Luther, it means you’re in love. Which is a lesson Jenny Hartmann learned from Emma Müller. But Jenny was a teacher too. She taught us about the catharsis of pizza ballet, the joy of sparkly jeggings, and the truth that love conquers all — even freak bus accidents and airplane crashes.
