Id say that May and Momo are friends. Not sort of friends.

They are two very different people, but it works out.
I'd say that they are, in fact, close friends. Sure, they annoy the crap out of each other, but if it came down to it, I think they'd both risk their lives for the other.

Certainly Momo would stand up for May's rights if they were infringed upon in any way. 

And if Momo were in any sort of trouble or danger, May would be right there, mixing it up with those responsible. 

Complementary badass.  "Together, they fight crime!"

As I've said before: polar opposites. Thrown together by fate. Fate being Marigold and Dale in this case.
They know that each other is a good person, even if they never would've traded more than courtesies if it hadn't been for "their humans", because they are so different.

There's a "Good Cop, Bad Cop" scenario bound to happen IMHO, but in the end that's JJ's decision.

More like a 'The Odd Couple' scenario. "We have nothing in common and generally can barely stand each other but, frankly, we'd also be completely at a loss trying to live with someone else!" The parallels really are very close. Momo and May's behaviour towards each other almost precisely parallels Felix and Oscar, respectively.

But are they more Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon or Jack Klugman and Tony Randall?

Do you think Momo is that fussy and fastidious?

She's certainly fussy and over-focussed on propriety and rules. Meanwhile, May just does as she feels and I can't see her being too organised, something that I think would drive a very organised person virtually insane.

May had literally nothing (including a body) for a while I would imagine she would be very particular about each and every item in her possession.

I'm always impressed by May's and Momo's body language and how it informs their character. May is nearly always arms akimbo, slouching, relaxed, wide-stanced. Momo nearly always has hands or arms folded, limbs close in, careful posture. You could read a comic without word balloons and get their relationship. In fact, I'd like to see a week of wordless May and Momo comics. I think there's a lot of potential there.

Their relationship definitely parallels the odd couple, even if their characters are not precise parallels for one another.

I've really been getting a vibe recently from various people on the forums. A thin drizzle of dislike or even contempt for Momo's moral outlook. I wouldn't have said she is "over-focused" on propriety and rules, but feel free to convince me.

I don't really think she's fussy either, but I guess that's subjective.

Yes, she is careful about etiquette.

Probably the same as zapping library interns.
