“So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A.
It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear
When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, but
I’ll be there for you…”
Did you hear the original song in your head as you went through the lyrics?
If yes, then you are also smitten by the show adored by generations of youngsters!
It’s been more than 10 years since Chandler and Monica Bing shifted upstate with their twins, more than 10 years since Rachel Green got off the plane for Ross Geller and more than a decade without hearing a ‘How you doin’ or singing Smelly Cat!
But we still miss the sitcom that gave us so many moments of laughter and tears. We’ve watched the six characters figuring out their life in front of us, on a repeat mode!
We’ve watched a spoiled fashionista evolving into an independent woman, we’ve seen two grownup men gushing over dinosaurs and food, we’ve loved the sarcasm of the guy who makes jokes when he’s uncomfortable and gets married to a compulsive perfectionist. And can we forget, we saw a woman giving away her triplets so her brother gets his happiness?
No, we can’t!
So the jokes and the moments have stuck with us for life! Here’s a quick summary of the phrases every F.R.I.E.N.D.S. fan is going to love and relive!
Joey Doesn’t Share Food!
Here’s a thing about Joseph Francis ‘Joey’ Tribbiani Jr. ; His love for food touches spiritual levels!
He literally saved his sandwich from a bullet and in the episode where he’s on a date with Sarah, she dared grab a few fries from Joey’s plate, forgetting ‘it’s not about the fries, it’s about what the fries represent!”
Oh and the look of that deep emotional hurt on Joey’s face when Sarah took his fries:
No big deal, but the moment F.R.I.E.N.D. fanatics hear the word ‘Pivot’, this iconic scene follows in their mind!
Poor Rachel and Chandler agreed to help Ross in taking his furniture up his apartment and what followed, was no less than a funny-as-hell mess!
And other folks still wonder what is it about this word that gets a chuckle out of you; every.single.time!
You heard that in one particular voice, didn’t you?
Oh yes, Chandler’s omnipresent ex with her ever so irritating voice entertained us every time she was on the screen. Poor Chandler was almost always speechless seeing Janice…
and we loved how this phrase scared the shit out of our six babies!
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat…
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat
What are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat
It’s Not Your Fault!
This doesn’t even need an introduction!
Well it’s the state of complete awareness and err… Salmon skin roll!
Universally accepted as one of the funniest episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S (Thanks to Unagi), This will surely get a good laughter out of you.
Ross is trying to make others understand the importance of Unagi while others are planning to eat it!
And what follows, is a series of hilarious incidents that made us doubt if it was ever possible for us to achieve Unagi!
I Got off the Plane!
This one sentence marked the beginning of a relationship that came with a 10 season long on and off romance and put an end to their fans’ and Ross’s miseries!
I couldn’t think of another moment where we cried and cheered at the same time!
How Ya Doin’
No special words, no Special phrase…
It’s all in just the way Joey Says it!
Yup, just those expressions made it the best pickup line of the decade!
One Mississippi, Two Mississippi…
This tells you not to count Mississippily when you’re about to get a spray tan!
We all know that unfortunate moment when Ross decided to go for a spray tan and ends up looking like this!
That was one funny episode!
It tastes like feet!
What on earth could taste like feet?
Presenting Rachel Green’s self invented traditional english truffle, which had “ A layer of ladyfinger,then Jam, then a custard she made all by herself, then Raspberries, then more ladyfingers, then sauted beef with onions and peas(Gosh, Rachel!), then custard and bananas with some whipped cream on the top!”
And here are Joey and Ross after Rachel finished reciting her ingredients!
We still applaud all the friends for even trying to eat whatever that was!
It’s a Nubbin!
For all non watchers, we’re talking about Chandler’s third *non functional* nipple!
Nothing more is left to say!
Ugly Naked Guy!
The guy whose face we never saw and yet it left us heartbroken when he left his apartment!
This was the guy who time and again brought all six to the window and was as important as any other character! We miss you ugly naked guy!
And finally, the legendary….
We Were On A BREAK!!!
The topic is still debatable not only between Ross and Rachel, but also among all the fans of the show!
We do not know if what Ross did was right or not, but we succumbed to bouts of laughters whenever the topic came up!
Phew, so here was a quick flashback of all the lovely moments we so possessively cherish! Which one among this is your favorite? Or comment if we missed any!
Keep Sparkling !
