Lighthearted thread.

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

Joshua was the one for Rachel! They totally should have written him back in when he was ready for a relationship!

SauvignonMum Fri 22-Feb-19 23:05:39

Noooo, they had no chemistry.

Joey and Charlie were even worse though

Livpool Fri 22-Feb-19 23:07:00

Ross was the worse character- though I don't think Rachel and Joey was the the way to go

amrscot Fri 22-Feb-19 23:07:17

Did the writers change in the later seasons?

Nah I liked Rachel and Ross together.

Not excusing ross' behaviour, but phoebe explained him well one episode. He was never controlling or jealous until Carol his first wife cheated on him and left him for another woman.

Now, how many people have been cheated on and have felt jealous in later relationships, or at the least insecure at times? I'm not excusing his behaviour, but there was a reason for it and he did learn from that. He got better at handling it and they grew up basically. He shouldn't have acted that way to her, but he'd had a shit first serious relationship and didn't know how to handle it.

Monica and Chandler were perfect for each other. I hated Richard

She got back with Ross purely because of Emma. If they didn't have a child they wouldn't be together. Rachel should be with Gavin who covered for her during maternity leave and Ross should be with Charlie the palentologist.

@Livpool I loved Richard. Why didn't you like him?

LaurieMarlow Fri 22-Feb-19 23:09:54

I agree, I thought they were cute together.

I never got her and Ross. I understood what he saw in her, but but the other way round.

I’d have married her off to Mark though.

Monica and Chandler were a brilliant couple. Much better than Richard.

Perhaps Rachel should have ended up with Phoebe. I liked it when they shared an apartment and took down Ross.

dayswithaY Fri 22-Feb-19 23:12:04

I hated Richard and it was so creepy that he was friends with Monica's parents and she grew up with his kids - gross 😝. She should have married Pete the tech billionaire.

amrscot Fri 22-Feb-19 23:12:36

What happened to Ben? There's been no mention or sight of him since Season 8 confused

Livpool Fri 22-Feb-19 23:15:40

@amrscot I just he was creepy, given that he must have known her as young girl.

Although I hate moustaches - so could be that more than anything

MissEliza Fri 22-Feb-19 23:16:41

I really fancied Pete!

jay55 Fri 22-Feb-19 23:17:39

Joey was a incapable manchild.
She should have gone back to Bruce Willis.

MissEliza Fri 22-Feb-19 23:17:58

However I did love the episode where Monica leaves the weird message on Richard's voicemail!

NoShitHemlock Fri 22-Feb-19 23:18:29

Literally just watching Friends now! I definitely think she should have stayed on the plane cos who the fuck needs a man like these - Ross was an utter cockwomble and Joey really did get stupid in the later seasons.

Chandler was always my favourite "I'm not great at the advice. Could I interest you in a sarcastic comment?" ARF grin

amrscot Fri 22-Feb-19 23:19:20

@NoShitHemlock Chandler is by far the best character!! He's hilarious

ionlylovemybedandmymama Fri 22-Feb-19 23:19:25

Monica and Richard
Rachel and Gavin
Chandler and Janice
Phoebe and Scientist Guy
Joey single

Bangs gavel

amrscot Fri 22-Feb-19 23:21:40

@ionlylovemybedandmymama Chandler and Janice noooooo

blackteasplease Fri 22-Feb-19 23:21:58

I hated Rachel and Ross. All this "meant to be together" stuff was always a bit odd in my opinion.

They always seemed to be trying to sell these two as an item, and the whole ideal of them being the "right" one for each other, in a way I didn't like much.

And Ross was a twat.

blackteasplease Fri 22-Feb-19 23:23:02

I liked Chandler and Monica as a couple.

People seemed to like Chandler and Joey, but in many ways the writers never seemed to care about them, especially Joey.

SnowWhitesRestingBitchFace Fri 22-Feb-19 23:23:25

Ross can take his pivoting holiday armadillo self and get in the bin. That's all I have to say on the matter.

amrscot Fri 22-Feb-19 23:24:10

@SnowWhitesRestingBitchFace 😂😂

Janice was too good for Chandler and I say as a massive Chandler fan. I liked him and Kathy.
