Maya: Alright, Farkle, you're a scientist. Let's do an experiment. Ask me without the ring.
Farkle: Would you marry me?
Maya: Die. Now ask me with the ring.
Farkle: Would you marry me?
Maya: I love you so much.
Farkle: I believe you.
—An exchange between Farkle and Maya in Girl Meets the New World
It's Farkle who's been smart. It's Farkle who's wanted to know what Belgium 1831 was ever since it went up on the board. It's Farkle who's always loved us and tried to protect us. [gets up and kisses Farkle on the cheek] Sorry, Smackle.

Farkle and Maya is the friendship/romantic pairing of Farkle Minkus and Maya Hart. Their ship name is Faya or Markle.

Even if they are considered to be frenemies, Farkle used to have a crush on Maya, although she did not feel the same way and only considered him as a close friend. However, Farkle is later shown to be more friendly towards Maya as he isn't as affectionate as he used to be, and she now accepts his friendship openly (same applies to him and Riley). Their relationship has a hilarious and touching dynamic to it and they have shown to be extremely protective of each other and care a lot about each other.

In Girl Meets Texas (Part 2), Farkle is the only one other than Riley to realize something is wrong with her.

In Girl Meets Farkle, she doesn't (at first) want to accept Farkle's suspicion of him having autism showing that she probably thinks of him as being a perfectly fine and normal guy (which is sort of ironic considering all four of them (Farkle, Lucas, Maya and Riley) have learned that everyone has flaws).
