The Cue: Princess Diaries

The Scene:

 Mia confides in her best buddy Lilly that she is the only heir to the throne of a small European monarch. She makes Lilly promise not to tell anyone. But when the news leaks out and the whole city flips, Lilly swears she never told a soul! This proves to be true when the real culprit turns out to be Mia’s beauty guru, Paolo.

The Code: Keep her secrets.

Spilling the beans about a friend’s secret is never a good thing. Secrets are what separate the relationship of an acquaintance from that of a real friend. So when your pal tells you something and asks you to swear you’ll never tell anyone, keep your word unless it’s a matter of life and death. Remember, it’s not just the issue that matters, but also the trust that’s at stake.
