Friends is known as one of the best and most popular comedy sitcoms in history. The show ran from 1994 – 2004 and, in those years, jokes were told, laughs were had, and memories were made.
The show followed six friends living in New York who are struggling to make it in the real world and are presented with challenges in their careers, their relationships, and their friendships. Each character has their own unique personality.
Rachel Green, played by Jennifer Anniston, started as a girl relying on daddy’s credit cart but then became a self-sufficient, mature adult. Rachel lives in an apartment with high school best friend Monica Geller, played by Courteney Cox. Monica is a compulsive neat freak, who has trouble finding Mr. Right. Her brother, Ross Geller, played by David Schwimmer, is a paleontologist and is in love with Rachel. He spends two seasons trying to win over the girl of his dreams but then loses her until season 10. Phoebe Buffay, played by Lisa Kudrow, lived her life on the streets and is a crazy but loveable hippie. Joey Tribiani, played by Matt Leblanc, is a struggling actor and lives off of meatball subs and a string of one-night-stands. Joey is roommates with Chandler Bing.
Chandler Bing is played by Matthew Perry, and is a sarcastic, commitment phobe data processor. He uses his wit and smarts to hide his feelings. Throughout the seasons, Chandler matures but he never loses his clever sense of humor. Chandler is often the favorite out of the six because of his quick remarks and horrible dance skills.
