Which '70s Sitcom Actress Would You Be Pals With?

So many tight friendships in the '70s, but which supporting character would you want in your own life?

Can’t I just live in an apartment building or boarding house with all of them?

Cloris Leachman.

I would ask her to do the "Bess wants to marry a boy whose parents are midgets" routine (with me as Leo) over and over again.

Dammit OP!

Where they hell is Bonnie Franklin?

“I hate Datalounge but I love to tap!”

I'd take any but my preference would be LaWanda Page so I could listen to her filthy jokes.

Definitely Rhoda. I’d borrow her scarves.

I am not surprised our Bonnie was left off. OP knew so we didn't have to tell him later.

Having said that, I voted for Cloris.

Linda Lavin would lull me to sleep every night with her beautiful and restful jazz singing.

R7, these are supporting characters. Linda was the series lead.

“Ja'Net DuBois from Good Times.”

Because I’d constantly be given permission to “Slap her, Willona!”

I ain't no fish eyed fool. I choose Lawanda!

I'd love lunch then happy hour with Lawanda Page and Selma Diamond... She was more 80's though even if she was doing lots of writing in the 70's.

I would love to have Willona as my neighbor.

Louise Jefferson, for sure.

A big girl who was a good cook with a big heart. And just sassy enough.

Myrna Morgenstein. She was a fun slut.

Rhoda: "How many of our customers are you..." Myrna: "Dating?" Rhoda: "Dating." Myrna: "How many customers do we have?" Rhoda: "Fourteen." Myrna: "Fourteen? I'm dating fourteen. It seems like more."

Poor Aunt Bea made famously delicious fried Chicken, yet no one wants to be her pal.

R19 Because she make kerosene pickles.

Eww, no!

Her voice is so annoying.

Carol Kester-Bondurant, because she would laugh at most of my corny jokes, and I hers.

No one would ever willingly be friends with Bonnie Franklin. Don't pretend otherwise.

Dinner with Valerie would be an endless pitch for EST.
