Jay and Silent Bob are two fictional characters created by Kevin Smith and have appeared in various movies which take place in a fictitious universe named View Askewnivers. Their chemistry is interesting to watch and an appealing point about these two characters is their comradery and loyalty towards one another despite their starking contrast in characters. In almost most of the movies they are featured in, they could both be found selling marijuana in front of a convenience store, very rarely, one without the other.
Out of the duo, Jay naturally takes the role of a leader since Silent Bob, like his moniker simply does not talk unless it is necessary. Unlike Silent Bob, Jay is loud, vulgar and spouts offensive remarks whenever he finds the opportunity to. Occasions where he could be found bullying and even threating those he deals with is not uncommon. In most of the films, Jay is shown as a character who talks more than he does, always boasting about his reputation as a ladies man when the reality is quite the opposite.
However, when paired with Silent Bob, a character who is quite different than him, their spark is quite uncanny. Silent Jay, well, is mostly silent. Despite his silence, his speech and talk are remarkably impactful and thought- provoking. In situations where his input is required, he is more than capable to provide an eloquent and logical explanations or instructions especially for his friend, Jay.
Together, these two buddies started out their journey meeting each other as infants in front of Quick Stop Groceries while their mothers went inside the store to store. Throughout various installments of the movies they are featured in, they paved into various adventures, both silly and humorous.

- Are we gonna have a problem… again?
- All you motherf*ckers are gonna pay. You are the ones who are the b*ll-l*ckers. We’re gonna f*ck your mothers while you watch and cry like little, whiny b*tches.
