Random Greek Mythology Questions

So this week at Hour 25, the Friday café is all about Friendship. That's why the question about Helios and Hephaestus. I could have asked about Thetis and Eurynome, I suppose.

Who is your favorite pair of friends in Greek Mythology? No fair naming twins who were stuck with one another from the every beginning, I'm talking about true friends.
