Saul and Sally

Sally and Darla
Darla Einstein was Sally Spectra’s employee but was also like a daughter to her. In fact, Sally’s biological daughter, Macy Alexander, was once jealous of their connection.

Bill and Justin
Bill Spencer Jr and Justin Barber weren’t just co-workers, but long-standing friends. Bill listened to Justin more than anyone else and their relationship extended beyond the office.

Stephanie and Brooke
Stephanie Forrester’s rivalry with Brooke Logan was one for the ages and spanned decades after igniting almost from the first moment Brooke laid eyes on Stephanie’s son, Ridge Forrester.

A twist indeed considering all the fights they had there.
Sheila and Taylor
We know, we know! They were never friends before and will never be friends again. But the five minutes they came together on Bold & Beautiful were unforgettable! In fact, they even got their own ship name — “Shaylor”. Taylor and Sheila commiserated over the death of Finn, and Taylor stopped Sheila from jumping off the hospital roof to her own death… only to have her life saved by the madwoman when she slipped. It was a bonding event like none other and Taylor championed Sheila’s cause with Hayes in the immediate aftermath. Of course, all of this was before Taylor learned that Sheila had shot both Finn and Steffy…
