- through thick and thin – through all circumstances no matter how difficult
- to be as thick as thieves – to be very close or friendly
- to be joined at the hip – to be inseparable
- to be on the same page/wavelength – to be in agreement
- to build bridges – to promote friendly relations between people or groups
- to bury the hatchet – to end a conflict
