In every group, there's one person who tries to avoid emotions through sarcastic comments, making them the centre of the group's jokes and running gags. They are the ones with hidden trauma and whenever put in a barely similar position, try to duck the situation using humour as a defence mechanism.
Jake Peralta from Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Stiles Stilinski from Teen Wolf are two TV characters that are definitely guilty of this.
Jake and Stiles both have unresolved parent issues and thus a ruined childhood, are bad at relationships and are the living embodiment of a loyal best friend we all deserve. Both of them have some kind of killer one-liners for every situation their group face and a group of friends they constantly ridicule.
Quirky and exceptional, both Jake and Stiles are the centre of their shows’ countless major plots, making them arguably their most important (and popular) characters. See the similarities?
You may think you know everything there is to know about Jake and Stiles, but can you distinguish which sarcastic genius said what?
