Arizona Robbins – Grey’s Anatomy

All you have to do is take one look at that million watt smile, and you just know she’d warm right up to you. Arizona Robbins, despite her embattled past, is constantly upbeat and cheery. But hear me out. It’s not as annoying as it sounds. In fact, it’s just the opposite. It’s wildly comforting to have someone in your life that can always see the bright side.

Sure, she’s had her fair share of dark moments — losing a limb, divorce, professional setbacks — but she never stays down. After every terrible thing that’s happened to her, she bounces back with a healthy dose of perspective and pep. She’s the kind of friend that will come to your house after a terrible breakup, peel you off the couch, force you to take a shower, and take you out dancing.

You’ll be mad at her for a minute, but that will quickly fade as you catch her positive attitude and sunny disposition. She’s always going to be the friend who tries to pull you out of your sulk with a solid joke, a funny impression, or just a hearty laugh. Arizona is going to get you smiling again, whether you like it or not.
