Charlie and Dee are very close. They’ve allied one another on several occasions. They have been shown to be naturally more open with each other when the other members of the gang are not around. (as they don’t get peer pressure from the group to make everything a joke) Even though their personalities are fairly different, they have been known to bond really well as they both get outcasted by the gang often. Their friendship began based on who they know in common. Charlie was childhood best friends with Mac, and now is best friends with Dee's fraternal twin Dennis.
