Default The ultimate question:Patty or Cathy?

Just answer any way you want, whether it be as a best friend or girlfriend.
I'll take an easy way out and pick Patty as a friend and Cathy as a girlfriend. Patty just seems like more fun to hang out with, and I'd much rather go to the burger stand then eat crepes suzette. But Patty also seemed too much like a little kid to have a serious relationship, and I love Cathy's English accent. Your thoughts?

I'd love having someone like Cathy as a friend-brilliant, sophisticated, pensive, thoughtful--a still water THAT REALLY RUNS deep. Patty's a nice girl and all that, but I like Cathy better.

Me too. Cathy has always been my favorite. She tries to keep Patty grounded.

Definitely Patty. Not that I dislike Cathy, but Patty is the coolest, she's my type of girl.

Were they not fictional characters, I would easily want both girls as my friends.

Patty would be a fun person to be around...provided that you have the patience to try to reel her in once she gets too flighty. Patty is a girl of strong emotions...her newest idea is always the best one she ever had, and I'm sure that she would feel that way about a friend (or a boyfriend).

Cathy would be a good friend as well...trustworthy, grounded in reality most of the time (but she can get carried away sometimes herself, especially if she is pushed too far)...but you would need to be able to be strong for her, too, as her quiet, reserved manner hides a sensitive artistic soul with just a bit of low self-esteem. Cathy would be hard to get to know, but once you proved to her you were her friend (or boyfriend), she would be loyal. Cathy didn't seem to date as much as Patty, perhaps because she didn't feel she was ready, or because it got in the way of her schoolwork (or maybe keeping Patty and Ross out of trouble ate up too much of her time)?

For some reason I always think of Patty as being a real person and Cathy as being a figment of imagination, but I think I would lean to Cathy. Although I like both girls, Patty is too loud and bossy sometimes. When she's subdued and in a normal state she's great.

Ted was her only sometime boyfriend I believe but he was gone by season 3 after that Cathy didn't really have a boyfriend she was just "there".
I did like the chemistry between Cath and Christopher Hubbard (the actor who later became Lucille Ball's son-in-law). That was one of my fave eps from the 2nd season.

Patty would be too tiring to have as a best friend especially when she gets into one of her hijinks.

Each has their own endearing qualities, but if I was forced to choose I think that I would side more with Cathy.
I appreciate her style more.
