In addition to being bandmates, Corey and Laney are also childhood best friends. However unknown to Corey, Laney has a secret crush on him. Laney will frequently gush at Corey at the many things he does like touching her or giving her compliments, but Corey will always remain oblivious to her love. For the most, Corey treats her like he does with any of the other boys and appears to be unaware of Laney's gender. However over time, Corey seems to have become aware that Laney is a girl, but their relationship has yet to take off, though it appears that Corey may have gained feelings for Laney in Curse of the Metrognome, where the two kiss for the first time and Corey appears to have enjoyed it. But despite this, Corey eventually seems to forget about the kiss after brushing Laney off when she goes to kiss him again, leaving their relationship and Corey's feelings unknown.
At the start of the episode, Corey presses his face against Laney's, to which she responds by saying "Hi Core". Corey then tells her he's "getting in [her] face." When Corey pulls away from Laney, she is left lovestruck with hearts floating above her head. Later in the episode, Laney gives a motivational sentence, Corey happily says "You said it fella" as he gave Laney a head noogie and runs away. After this, Laney was left dazed and lovestruck. Her hair was all messed up and she had hearts floating over her head as she made a pleasured face. Before Corey told his moral, Laney offers to let Corey get in her face again, however Corey is creeped out by this and calls it weird, which drops Laney's spirits.
Corey puts his arm around Laney and said "I know Laney, and I'm sorry for neglecting you after all this time." which made Laney's Heart pump extremely fast and say: "Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh!" After this Corey said "I should have said that I dig your costume. My bad. It's sick." However Laney's heart gets fed up and climbs out through Laney's tongue, saying "That's it, I'm outta here", before jumping off and splatting onto the ground.
When Trina makes fun of Corey for being up against a cute girl, Corey says they had everything Trina had minus the cute girl. He leans on Laney's head while saying so, making her fume. Later, while Corey explained his plan to Laney, he put his arm around her and Laney looked at his arm nervously.The Orb Experience had obtained Trina's Diary, he grabs onto Laney and starts shaking her while telling her to "panic with me". After Corey gives his moral, Laney excitedly exclaims how they would make great lyrics, and that Corey had them in him the whole time. Corey agrees and states they don't need Trina anymore, shortly before belching in Laney's face and he passes it off as gas, much to her annoyance.
When Corey has a wish war against Trina, Laney goes up to Corey and tries convincing him that revenge would accomplish nothing. When she explains this to him, romantic music played. She, along with Kin and Kon, successfully convince Corey to end the wish war.
While Corey was being hypnotized, he yelled at Laney for always being right and then walked back to the garage, where new age music, a style Corey had always hated, was playing, occompanied by Corey's rhythmic snapping. This made Laney's heart come out of her chest and break into pieces and for her to feel heartbroken and depressed. She started to tear up because she thought Corey hated her. However, Corey was hypnotized by Planty when this happened so this wasn't really what Corey's thoughts on her were. Laney was later seen still crying over Corey and tears were flowing out of her eyes like geysers and she was screaming in misery but then Kin shook her, telling her that it was actually Planty that made him say those things to her and she stopped crying, felt happy, and fell back in love with Corey again, restoring their love, but not before punching Kin for calling her "Man."
After Corey gave out his final thought, Laney comments on how scary it was and and asks him why he didn't just use those as lyrics in the first place. Corey says in response, "Who knows fella? Who ever knows?" while he teasingly bops Laney on the nose three times. Laney is excited by this and she puts her hands up to her mouth and her eyes to glimmer and few hearts to float over her head as she excitedly looks at him, smiling. Corey looked at her smiling too while she did this. Unlike Laney however, Corey did not express any form of actual love toward her.
Corey gave Laney a bear hug and this made her fall madly in love. Pink hearts appear all around her and she giggles in love. But afterwards, Corey drops her onto the ground and she felt pain.
When Corey explained to Laney how they could get a full time gig out of playing at the Pollination Nation, he put his arm around her. When Corey explained to Laney how they could make Trina look sweet and win the Pollination Nation, he put his arm around her and pressed his face against her. When Corey saw Laney after Kin and Kon finished dressing her up for the Pollination Nation, he was looking at her her with shimmering eyes. He then said "I Gotta admit you make a pretty cute girl", before giving her a fist bump on the arm and calling her "Bro". After the pageant finished, Laney was annoyed that Corey turned down Mayor Mellow's offer to play at other pageants, and complains that she had to wear a dress. However Corey assures her that she never has to wear a dress again. Laney then imagines one of her dreams where it shows a wedding cake for her future wedding with Corey. The cake has figures of herself and Corey on it. Her figuring breaks down and the glass heart behind the small cake toppers breaks in half because she would have to wear a wedding dress on order for her to marry Corey and after hearing him tell her that she'll never have to wear a dress again, Laney's dreams are shattered leaving her with a very miserable face that is tearing up and her mouth is quivering as though she is about to cry.
When Laney changed her mind and agreed that she was into Corey's idea and would go along with it, Corey smiled and his eyes opened widely and glimmered. After Laney insults the inside of Trina's head, Corey compliments her by saying "Solid burn Lanes." Laney then looks back at Corey with loving shimmering eyes and blushes while smiling meekly.
Corey attempts to link himself to the Blab Tap network to put the the song into Trina's mind and take her down. Laney becomes worried, so she grabs Corey's face and begs him not to do it, believing if he was networked he would likely never return.
Laney was telling Corey about using Trina's diary entry as lyrics to save himself from the evil guitar. Corey shushed Laney and said "You had me at 'Corey, you're the greatest.'" For some reason, Laney did not have a loving reaction to this like she usually would. This was probably either because it was cut for time, or this was supposed to lightly hint love that Corey has for Laney.
As Corey and Laney are walking in the park, Corey wraps his arm around Laney as he explains that Trina getting her painting painted by nick. As he does so a pink love heart emerges from Laney. When Laney is turned into mime, Corey expresses major distraught over it by yelling "Noooooo!!!", hinting that he may have feelings for her.
Laney admits to Larry that she's in love with Corey and they talk about her feelings for him. She says that she wants to stay mad at Corey for all of the crazy things he does, but she can't because he's so cute. When Corey tells about his crazy plan that just might work, Laney says "I can't stay mad at you ... I mean, that could work!"
When Corey is singing Bring her Down, Laney comes up and sings into the same microphone with him. Corey and Laney spend the majority of the song singing with each other and as they're finishing the song, they are both seen looking at each other and happily smiling.
Corey suggested that the band goes out to feed some squirrels in the park as he put his arm around Laney. When he did this, romantic music played and Laney looked at him with a happy, love struck face. Corey also had a happy look on his face during this.
When Corey was explaining his plan in the car, he gave Laney a nose bop. After he did this, Corey's eyes shimmered and he smiled widely. Later, Laney was seen looking at him with shimmering, loving eyes. While Grojband was singing Kitty Rocks, Laney looked at Corey while he was holding Wheelie and said "I just wanna hug him." She was probably referencing to both Wheelie and Corey when she said this.
When Corey yanked a piece of toast out of Laney's hands, Laney reacted by first having a shocked face, but then when Corey dropped the toast into the toaster, she had a very happy and in love face. Her eyes were glimmering as she was staring at him and she was biting her lip and smiling excitably with loving angst.I Must Be Losing My Mind, Corey talks about all the things he lost, one of which included "his gal." He gestures to a silhouette of Laney's head as he says this.
Laney was seen laying down on the stage with her hands on her cheeks, looking at Corey with a loving look while she watched him shoot a bow and arrow. Later in the episode, Grojband broke up and Corey and Laney stopped liking each other. When they broke up, Laney sarcastically said to Corey "Imagine that, your sister being responsible for your music." Corey responded to her with sarcasm saying that maybe instead of using his idea for a song, they should have put some of her complaining into it instead. When Laney was alone in her room, she felt very anxious to get back together with Corey again and she even started arguing to her reflection in the mirror about Corey, and she comes to the conclusion that there's nothing for her to do without Corey and was right. Meanwhile, Corey build replicas of the rest of his band, along with one named Janey who was a replica of Laney. He was explaining to the band a plan to go to the moon. He asked Janey if she had any questions, and Janey just dropped to the ground and Corey screamed "Perfect!" Overall, Laney really missed Corey after breaking up with the band and he was all she ever thought about after this and although Corey didn't express any sorrow over the loss of Laney, he still built a replica of her. However, whether he did this out of love s debatable, seeing as he also made one of Kin and Kon, calling them "Jin and Jon." At one point, all of the members of Grojband came back to the garage again including Laney who saw Corey again. Unlike the rest of the band, Laney didn't seem to express any anger toward Corey whatsoever.Instead, she looked very sad and nervous around him. Corey opened a pre-recorded valentines day card from Laney where she was talking about how much she cared for Grojband, Corey's eyes got really big and started glimmering and getting watery. Laney felt awkward about being right in front of him when this was happening and she couldn't look him directly in the eye while it was happening. When grojband hugged right after they made up Laney was mostly hugging Corey. Corey and Laney even sang the song Love it's in my Heart together. A love song where they were standing on top of a pile of Valentine's day cards in a bright pink background of hearts and love. This song was not directed at each other though. Instead it was directed at all of the citizens of Peaceville that they hurt. At the end of the song, the only two people singing were Corey and Laney when they ended off the song singing "I love you and you love me too." After Corey told his moral, Laney said that he could have used his moral for lyrics to their song, to which Corey responds that Janey said the same thing. This makes Laney sigh in ignorance. When we make today our day," Corey and Laney hint multiple times that they have a crush on each other. When they are singing together, Corey looks at her lovingly leading Laney to blush and smile before looking away. They both continue singing into the same microphone after this which makes Laney look at Corey with sparkling eyes, smile, and blush even more. A picture of Corey and Laney kissing shows up during the last lot of pictures in the song. After the song, Laney wishes Corey a happy new year and attempts to kiss him again as a heart appears over her head. However Corey ignores this and tells his moral instead.
After Corey becomes addicted to the Solo Shredder videogame, Laney, Kin and Kon try various ways to drag him out of his addiction. They come up with the idea of putting a real guitar back in this hand, but that fails to work. When Corey finds out Trina's single Nick Nicky Nick has become a hit, he begins to snap. Laney tells him to breathe, but Corey retorts that he's been breathing his whole life and its gotten him nowhere.
When Laney hears that the world is going to end, she comes up to Corey with a valentines day card and she says that on her last day on earth, she needs to tell Corey what's in her heart. She is then stopped when she realizes she has no proof that the world is going to end. Corey asks Laney what was in her heart and she nervously says "Nothing!" and then changes the subject. Corey puts his arm around Laney and walks with her through the garage asking her if she would like her last moment on earth to count. This makes hearts float all around Laney's head as she stares at a him with sparkling eyes, giggles, and blushes. While Grojband is singing "If The World Is Ending," Corey gets close up to Laney and her eyes shimmer and a heart appears over her head.
Before Grojband plays "I'm Giving It All," Laney comes up to Corey and tells him it's been a pleasure rocking with him and she looks nervous when she says this. Corey is happy to hear this and he tells her that the pleasure was his. This makes Laney smile and feel more happy. While Corey tells his moral, he puts his arm around Laney as he says, "Saving the world is one thing Lanes. But there are other things that are everything. A one thing so special you'd die to save it, and be lost without it. And losing the one thing that's everything could leave you with nothing. A nothing so empty and cold, you can't even feel the wicked heat that's right beside you." After saying this, Corey runs his finger up along Laney's face and bops her on the nose. This makes hearts fly all around Laney while she looks at him with sparkling, shimmering eyes, blushes, and falls deeply in love with him, leaving her speechless.
- This relationship is commonly referred to as the shipping names: "Caney", "Corney", and even "Lancore."
- This relationship frequently overlaps with the running gag of Misgendering Laney.
- Their Newman counterparts Carrie and Lenny have a similar relationship, with Lenny having a secret crush on an oblivious Carrie.
- Although it is mostly Laney who expresses her love for Corey, Corey sometimes does things to express love for Laney. However, these moments are extremely subtle and very minor and some of them could easily be argued to not imply that he loves her just as easily as they can be argued that he does.
- In All You Need is Cake, Corey's first response to Laney saying that he was in love with her was staring in shock and saying "Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa?" as his jaw dropped. After he rememered that he was doing this for a giant cake, he quickly changed it to a "Whaaaaaaa-HOO!!!" and then went along with her plans and started complying with her, by going on fake dates with her. He was only faking it, but it is unknown if he actually enjoyed this and liked the dates they went on in this episode.
- In Six Strings of Evil, Corey shushed Laney, making a happy face as he stared at her. Love music played in the background but Laney expressed no loving feelings. It's possible that these loving feelings were actually Corey's.
- In Dreamreaver Part 1, when Laney decided she actually liked Corey's plan and wanted to join it, Corey's face lit up with shimmering eyes and a loving smile.
- In Pop Goes the Bubble, Corey acknowledged the fact that Laney was a girl and told her "Ladies first."
- In It's in the Card, Corey started tearing up when he heard the prerecorded card from Laney, telling him how she really loves him and the rest of the band. This also made him agree to start the band up again.
- In Curse of the Metrognome, Corey and Laney kissed for the first time and a giant love heart appeared over both of their heads. Corey's reaction was becoming paralyzed in shock as he said "Woooow" with shimmering glazed eyes. He also acted really awkward and nervous afterwards.
It is possible that Laney is also oblivious to Corey, as he hugs, boops and touches her more than does to Kin, Kon or anyone else. Also, in the song "I Must Be Losing My Mind", when he says "...my gal..." a silhouette of Laney appears. Could it be that Corey shows signs of liking Laney more than she shows signs of liking him? Is Corney/Caney/Lorney canon? It's possible...
