If you're the architect of your older prank: National Lampoon's Animal House

When you express your reluctant affections through pranks: The Office

How many times has Jim (John Krasinski) stroked Dwight (Rainn Wilson)? There were the classic office supplies in Jell-O; There was a future dwight; There was the Asian Jim. Although Jim had some affection for his quirky desk mate, there seemed to be no end to the number of pranks he wanted to pull Dwight over the nine seasons of the working comedy. Do not try this at home (or work). You need a real expert to deduct them.

If you caress without affection: Scrubs

Maybe, just maybe, the janitor (Neil Flynn) JD (Zach Braff) liked it a bit, but over the years in the medical comedy It seems so be. The caretaker has done everything to make the life of J.
