About the ShowPull up a couch and relax at Central Perk, where six Friends gather to talk about life and love. Friends tells the story of siblings Ross and Monica Geller, Chandler Bing, Phoebe Buffay, Joey Tribiani and Rachel Green.
The relationships are a little complex. Ready? Rachel and Monica were high school classmates, while Ross and Chandler have been friends since college. Joey and Phoebe seem to have met the gang a bit later on. At some point, Ross has loved Rachel, divorced three times and had a son with his first wife, who's a lesbian. Monica dated her dad's friend, the eye doctor, she had to wear fake boobs for a waitressing job and eventually married Chandler. Chandler's dad is a drag queen, played by Kathleen Turner, and his mom is Morgan Fairchild. He also had a nubbin. Joey's an actor whose greatest roles have been as a doctor with an evil twin on "Days of Our Lives" and Al Pacino's butt. Phoebe sings bad folk music, works as a masseuse and actually has an evil twin. Oh and she was a surrogate for her brother's triplets. Finally, Rachel took forever to get a real job, did not have an affair with Ralph Lauren, fell in and out of love with Ross, and then had his baby.
Friends debuted in 1994 and proceeded to become one of the highest-rated shows on television. Lisa Kudrow and Jennifer Aniston were both Emmy winners for their work on Friends, and the show won the Emmy for outstanding comedy series in 2002. But you don't need an award to get a seat on the couch at Central Perk. You can always stop by to see them on TBS!
