Lighthearted thread.

Watching Friends and I wish Joey and Rachel ended up together sad

Hated those two together. Especially as they had Rachel start acting really dumb.

Oh no, the chemistry was non-existent.

But I didn’t want her to end up with Ross either.

Ninkaninus Fri 22-Feb-19 22:55:26

No. Absolutely not. As above, I hated the way they suddenly dumbed Rachel right down for that storyline.

I hate Ross and Rachel together sad

I'd rather have her with joey, I thought they were cute

DanglyBangly Fri 22-Feb-19 22:56:23

Nope, they were awful together. Awkward.

But I think she’d outgrown Ross by the end as well. They didn’t really go together anymore.

They turned Joey into an absolute idiot in the layer series

Ninkaninus Fri 22-Feb-19 22:56:57

Oh uhm I meant YES, YABVU.

NO she should not have ended up with Joey. And she should not have ended up with Ross either.

I don't think Ross was right for her either.
I wish they'd brought Gavin in, I think maybe he was the one....

Noooooo! It was such an awkward storyline. At the time I wanted Rachel to end up with Ross but having rewatched it, I wish she'd stayed on the plane and gone off to the fabulous job in Paris and left his whiny, controlling ass behind.

She should’ve stayed on the plane....

amrscot Fri 22-Feb-19 22:57:31

@Aberforthsgoat thought joey was always an idiot grin

LeekMunchingSheepShagger Fri 22-Feb-19 22:57:43

Nooo that was totally wrong. Almost as wrong as rachel and Ross.

Seren85 Fri 22-Feb-19 22:58:09

Sorry, I mean yes you are BVU grin

amrscot Fri 22-Feb-19 22:58:42

Ross is the worst character imo

C0untDucku1a Fri 22-Feb-19 22:59:10

She absolutely should have stayed on the plane. Ross was controlling. Joey was not intelligent and they dumbed down rachel’s character to make it seem possible.

MamaBear2181 Fri 22-Feb-19 22:59:50

YABU. However had you said Monica should have ended up with Richard I would have agreed wholeheartedly.

Newadventure Fri 22-Feb-19 23:00:47

Who was that other guy? Mark?? The one who got her the job and Ross was jealous of?
She should have got with him.

Yeah.. fuck you Ross.

DianaPrincessOfThemyscira Fri 22-Feb-19 23:01:35

No. But I agree the Ross relationship had run it’s course too.

amrscot Fri 22-Feb-19 23:01:52

@MamaBear2181 I love Monica and Chandler together but also loved her with Richard! Can't decide who I liked her with the most

liverbird10 Fri 22-Feb-19 23:02:05

They were both thick as two short planks, so why not.

Tink2007 Fri 22-Feb-19 23:02:16

God no. The Joey and Rachel pairing was the worst thing to happen to Friends after the whole Marcel the Monkey storyline.

Zero chemistry, very awkward and they dumbed both down way too much. Joey, in the early episodes, was nowhere near as dim as they made him towards the end.

Aberforthsgoat Fri 22-Feb-19 23:03:12

@amrscot he was always a bit of a lovable idiot but he’s still pretty sharp and smart in earlier series
Later episodes like the one where he’s learning french it’s like he has regressed back to a child. it’s not even funny, I found it painful to watch!

Liverpool52 Fri 22-Feb-19 23:04:34

Totally agree. Loved them together.

Just watched the lobster episode and it had both of us shouting at the screen about what a dick ross is and that he's not her lobster.
