A promise is a promise

Back in 1992, Tom Cook and Joe Feeney shook hands on a pact. If either of them every won the lottery, they'd split the winnings. It's not like it would ever happen, right? Wrong. Twenty-eight years later, Tom won a $22 million jackpot, and sure enough, the Elk Mound, Wisconsin, man called his old fishing buddy Joe to share the news.

At first, Joe didn't believe Tom had won. He asked, "Are you jerking my bobber?" The two used their joint windfall to comfortably retire, and even took a couples road trip with their wives to celebrate. If that's not friendship, we don't know what is.
