On this day 20 years ago, we all met six New Yorkers who were sitting around a coffee shop drinking out of impossibly huge coffee mugs and just chitchatting. There was nothing special about them; they were just Friends. And since that day, almost every human being has longed for a life where your best friends live across the hall from you and you can afford a giant, beautiful apartment in NYC. It turns out the real world is nothing like that, but at least we got to pretend it was for 10 seasons.
But then you went off the air 10 years ago, which means your stupid theme song lied!
You weren't always there for us! You didn't leave us. But you did leave a hole in our heart that no sitcom has been able to fill. Check out the very first visit to the set of Friends. Were they on a break? Make a choice, pick a lane! Bonus points for whoever finishes that joke:. After Rachel and Ross get into yet another fight over her work schedule, Rachel suggests "taking a break from us. He then sleeps with the hot copy girl, Chloe, but the morning after, Ross and Rachel get back together.
When Rachel finds out about what Ross did, he thinks it shouldn't count because they were on a break. Whatever Rachel said regarding their current status is irrelevant, and there is no excuse for Ross sleeping with someone else after his lobster suggested taking a break.
Not only did he honestly believe Rachel would be hooking up with Mark hours after their fight she would neverbut he kissed Chloe, brought her back to his apartment and had sex with her. At no point during those events did he think he should stop? Ross, you blew it.
Speaking of Friendsget a load of all these famous friends. So many iconic moments over 10 seasons! If you had to choose one season to watch for the rest of time, what season would it be? Season four is the best season. It starts with Ross and Rachel getting back together for a hot minute and ends with Chandler and Monica in bed together in London. And, oh yeah, Ross Did ross and rachel hookup in real life Rachel's name at the altar while marrying Emily.
So big couple movements on both ends. Plus, in between there is Chandler in a box, the big trivia competition "The One with the Embryos" that leads to the apartment switch and, of course, "Seven! Joey fell in love with Rachel after she moved in with him, and Rachel later began to return those feelings although hers were more lust-oriented. They finally kissed in the season-nine finale, and then they dated for a couple of episodes before deciding they were much better off as friends.

There really isn't an argument here except for: Was putting Joey and Rachel together a terrible idea or a really terrible idea? It was too far into the series to throw these two together. They didn't make sense and their romantic scenes felt forced. Yes, two friends can fall in love and make it work, with Chandler and Monica serving as proof of that.
But they made sense, especially when you consider they've been dancing around each other since before the events of season one. Remember "The One With the Flashback?
Such a Chandler thing to do. TV roles that almost went to other actors, including Friends! There will never be just one iconic quote, but if we had to narrow some down: It's obviously not as deep of an argument as Rachel and Joey's compatibility, but since Jennifer Aniston 's hair was always a talking point over 10 seasons and beyondcutting off her locks in season seven and debuting a brand new 'do angered a lot of fans.
We loved it, even though Jennifer has gone on record saying she regrets chopping off her hair like that. It looked so cute on her, and it was nice to see something different from our fashionista Friend. Which TV clique do you belong in?
Phoebe met and fell in love with David the scientist guy in season one, and over 10 seasons he kind of floated in and out of her life. He was the one that got away, and she almost ended up engaged to him in season nine. Mike came out of nowhere and was able to keep up with the "wonderfully weird" Phoebe.
But he did break her heart by saying he would never marry her.
In the end, she ended up married to Mike and they probably have nine kids now. It wasn't just a timing issue, which Phoebe proved when she chose Mike over David in Barbados.
They were each other's lobsters. Those who raise rat babies together, stay together.
Sorry, but there will never be a Friends reunion. Friends fans hate choosing just one, but we always make each other do it. It's like fictional character torture. And to be clear, this show would not have worked without all six of them. It has to be. Not only Did ross and rachel hookup in real life he the funniest one, but he had a heart of gold and was often the center of the biggest and most emotional episodes. And even though the finale was all about Ross and Rachel finally getting back together for good she got off the plane!
Of course, we could think of a couple more things Friends fans still fight over, like the fact that Kathy was awful, whether or not Emma was a necessary plot point and if Ross was the most annoying, terrible friend.
But we're going to end the debate now or we'll be here all day and night. Happy year anniversary, Friends! We miss you every single day, but you live on in our box sets and on TBS.
