This past Tuesday, May 6, was the tenth anniversary of the Friends series finale. Since we still can’t get The Rembrandts’ “I’ll Be There For You” out of our heads, we thought we would celebrate with all of our favorite Friends quotes.
After all, no TV show has had quite an impact on our lives or on media itself as Friends. Hell, nothing other than Mean Girls has impacted the way we speak as much as Friends has!
Though there were so many memorable moments (and so many memorable quotes and exchanges that happened in those moments) throughout the ten years that Friends was on the air we decided that we should probably narrow down our list of favorite quotes to a manageable amount.
We hope you enjoy (and agree with) our top twenty favorite Friends quotes (in no particular order because that would’ve been way too hard).
Admit it, you say this the exact same way that she does without even thinking about it. We know we do. Instead of a simple gif, we hope you enjoy this mashup of all of Phoebe’s “Oh no”s instead.
‘We were on a break!’
Who could ever forget that they were on a break? Or, at least, that Ross thought they were on a break. (We wouldn’t dare to take sides on this one.)
‘Could I BE wearing any more clothes?’
Could Joey do a better impression of Chandler? But really. Also, we’re sure he probably could wear a few more layers if he tried.
‘It’s a moo point.’
After hearing this while watching Friends, we have to say: We’re with Rachel on this one. Joey was actually making a tiny bit of sense!
‘I got off the plane.’
Simple, short, and to the point, this line from Rachel is probably one of the most romantic lines of the entire series. It makes us fall in love every time.
Who knew that one word could become so annoying? We never paid that much attention to the word “pivot” in general but now? Who could ever forget it? (Especially while moving furniture.)
‘They don’t know that we know that they know.’
When Phoebe started trying to keep track of who knew what about Chandler and Monica, we had a hard time trying to keep track of her keeping track. Does that make sense?
‘Isn’t that just kick-you-in-the-crotch, spit-on-your-neck fantastic?’
Well, that’s one way of saying it. One tongue-twisting, slightly dramatic way. But accurate and effective nonetheless, that’s for sure.
‘The fridge broke, so I had to eat everything.’
Story of our lives. In all honesty, if we were in his shoes, we’d end up doing the same thing.
‘Welcome to the real world. It sucks. You’re gonna love it!’
Never has a welcome message been so questionable. Or accurate. Twenty years later, Monica’s real world invitation still rings true.
