So you love Friends, right? We do too! But did you know it’s been 25 years since the show first aired on NBC?
The world has changed a lot over the past two decades, but Friends held its essence as a relatable, funny, and comforting show.
With one of the best casts in TV history, the series seems to be irreplaceable. Fans all over the world still hope that Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer will someday reunite for a reboot.
Until that happens, we’ll re-watch the series over and over again without getting bored because it has everything we long for in real life – love, great jokes, and above all, amazing friendship. Not to mention that some of the Friends quotes are pure gold.
Along the way, we’ve learned something from each character: rules are good (Monica), dinosaurs are fascinating (Ross), fashion is important (Rachel), it’s okay to be weird (Phoebe), sarcasm is forever (Chandler), and not everyone shares their food (Joey).
In fact, Friends taught us that life itself can be easy once we surround ourselves with the right kind of people.
