F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is an American sitcom television series, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman that spans across 10 seasons. It still continues to air on Comedy Central and recently it also completed 25 years. There are F.R.I.E.N.D.S. themed cafes around the world with merchandise available on most online shopping sites. This show was popular among most generations not just because it was just hysterical but because most of the viewers could relate to their lives. It is a story of 6 friends in their mid 20’s struggling to live in New York city sipping cups of coffee in the central perk.
1. Welcome to the real world, it sucks
The one where reality hits us and we realize that its time to grow up and face the real world. We’ve all been there when suddenly it’s all just happening so fast, where you’ll have to cut down your expenses and start worrying about grocery bills. This is the very moment you realize that you wish you listened to my parents more often. It’s that time where you have to live on your own. This moment might just hit you when it’s barely a week but you’re left with half your salary to spend the rest of the month after paying a dozen of bills.
2. He’s her Lobster!
The one where he’s the one. There’s this theory that lobsters mate for life with their significant other. They have the same partner until death parts them. Too cliche, right? You never know when you find that one person that might be your Lobster or have you already met that person?
3. I shouldn’t be allowed to make decisions anymore
The one where all your decisions are going sideways and you are so close to hate yourself for making such irrational decisions, but hey, you made them and implemented them because you felt that it was right that very moment. Cut yourself some slack.
4. Ah, Humor based on my pain. Ha Ha Ha
The one where your life is full of misery but those chaps know how to add humor in your pain, trying to be sarcastic or straight up about it. Who knows? If you actually think about it, isn’t it technically what friends to do cheer you up? By adding humor in your misery?
5. Well maybe, I don’t need your money. Wait. I said maybe
The one where you realize it’s time to live on your own and you don’t need your daddy’s money, maybe. You are still in the process of being independent where you want to live on your own financially on your own terms but your bank account has something else to say according to the recent bill you just paid. Getting a job must be the first thing on your to-do list. Miss purchasing without thinking of it being a tad overpriced is going to be an issue now that you are on your own? Miss daddy’s money or do you accept this challenge?
6. These are just feelings. They’ll go away
The one where you console yourself. Everyone’s had their heart broken at least once in their life. It’s part of everyone’s journey. Moving on is also a phase which one should go through and understand. Telling yourself that those were just feelings and will eventually fade is just giving yourself a kind of hope that things are going to go back on track once they start fading. They don’t fade magically, make a move; life ain’t that short for just one heartbreak.
7. He’s so pretty, I want to cry
The one where you see that perfect stranger, however, you know you’ll never see that person again. Happens often. We are also often told that never judge a book by its cover but this feeling is just soo random that it can actually happen anywhere, in a subway, train, bus, standing in an atm line waiting for your turn; you just look around and oops.
8.The Moo point
The one where it just doesn’t matter. Sometimes or rather always, we humans tend to overthink stuff which is not that important. We waste so much of our valuable time on that one particular thing that we don’t realize the amount of time we’ve wasted on something which might turn out to be so petty when we look back at it in the future. The Moo Point is a Cow’s opinion, it doesn’t matter. Its moo.
9.No uterus, No opinion
The one where men really can’t understand the pain. No further explanation needed.
10. I don’t even have a pla.
The one where you realize you don’t have a future plan. Every student can understand this statement. Don’t worry, it’s not the end of the world y’all. Not just students but many people, in general, have this thought every once a while. Planing is important but not just yet when you decide on something and make impulsive decisions, that’s not planing right. Think. Breathe. Calm down!
11.I’m full, and yet I know if I stop eating this I’ll regret it.
The one where you don’t want to let go. You know that once you let go there’s no coming back. You might either regret it your whole life and will have to live with it or you can rather do it and get proper satisfaction!
12. I don’t know what I’m going to do with my life
The one where all of your plans have failed. You’re in that miserable position where all you can see is a dead end. At this point, you might feel like you’re stuck with no way out. There’s always a way though. Just look in the right direction.
13. Boyfriends and Girlfriends will come and go but This, this is for life. (Referring to Pheobe’s and Joey’s friendship.)
The most valuable of all bonds- that of two friends. Some might disagree but good friendships truly are worth cherishing more than flings.
14. I’m hopeless and awkward and desperate for love.
The one where you’re clearly desperate. It’s been soo long you’ve been single that you just can’t take it anymore. Not having a date anymore but you also are socially awkward.
15. When I first meet someone its usually panic, anxiety and a great deal of sweating.
The one where you’re introvert and socializing ain’t your thing. The first impression is the last impression but what if you’re an introvert? Their impression is just going to be like, they’re a silent person. In reality, the number of emotions going within you cannot be explained unless the other person too is an introvert.
