I'LL BE THERE FOR YOU
Monica Velula Geller
Rachel Karen Green
Joseph Francis Trbbiani
Chandler Muriel Bing
Phoebe Rose Buffay
Ross Eustace Geller
Well, I am sure most of us know who they are… probably even love them. At least I do. Absolutely in love with all six of them and the show. And those who know me well, also know about the relative business venture too… one of the few dreams I have in life.
For those who don’t know, it’s the best comedy ever… the most famous comedy on TV that ran for 10 years and the fans still can’t get enough of it!!! Well Monica and Phoebe begin as roommates who have Chandler and Joey as neighbors. Phoebe moves out and Rachel, who is Monica’s childhood friend movies in. Ross is Monica’s Brother and Chandler’s Best friend.
Its all about the lives, loves, and laughs of these six people who are on their own and struggling to survive in the real world and how they find the companionship, comfort and support they get from each other to be the perfect antidote to the pressures of life. But it is never that straight forward, is it? It just feels so good every time I see this show. It's not just comedy; it’s the day-to-day situations that one can truly identify with. The humor is just so universal. I feel like I'm part of the group every time I watch it because I can FEEL the different emotions they go through. It’s just like how it should be. PERFECT!
Ross is this sweet paleontologist who speaks very precisely and is somewhat shy.
Monica is a chef, bossy, controlling, competitive and an absolute cleanliness freak.
Chandler…the sarcastic joke maker of the group…started with statistics and ended with advertising. Who would have expected him to get married and have kids: D
Joey... Ah Joey… My favorite character ever… I so clearly remember the episode where he plays Sigmund Freud in a musical based on his life…simply hilarious. Intellectually slow (“get there faster”) but extremely fast with women (“how you doing?”)… Reminds me of the scene where he tries it on Phoebe and she blushes…lol
Rachel, the spoilt queen of the pack who gets all the male attention all the time. Confused and fashionable.
Phoebe…way out in the left field all the time. DIFFERENT to the core. Perfect comic timing… I wonder if she really belongs to this planet…he he he…The Princess Consuela Bannanahammock, Mrs. Crap bag and of course Regina Phalange
My favoritest episode is the one with the football on Thanksgiving Day…how can one ever get over all the football and THE Gellar cup… every time I think of it, am ROFL…EVERYTIME. And then there’s the one where Ross is moving and keeps shouting…PIVIOT…PIVIOT…PIVIOT!!! Hi hi ha ha ha ha. Then of course the one in Central Perk where Ross tries to hit Joey and then Joey fills his hospital form… outstandingly sidesplitting. Or the one where Chandler is obsessed with his seat and Joey walks in wearing all of Chandler’s clothes and says: “Look at me, I’m Chandler. Could I beeee wearing any more clothes? Maybe if I wasn’t going commando.”
And there was so much to learn…Like Ezel [Donkey in Dutch], Vaffannapolis [Get lost in Italian] and how to give a finger without really giving it [the time when Monica cried all night cuz she realized for the first time that she is cooler then her elder brother, LOL]. Oh and the concept of having a back up or being on a break…AND that there are 7 zones (really!!!)… he he he.
Its become such an inherent part of my daily life that a lot of times I tend to say stuff from the show or imitate a character to drive home a point…Like chandler’s could it BEEEEEEEEE … Or Chandler’s dance….The smelly cat… “It tastes like Feeeet”…”I can hear the voices in my head again”…”I’m Joey, I don share food”… Quoted “OOPS” by Joey…Monica’s version of “I KNOW” and Phoebe’s version of “Oh No”… Unaaagiii… Barrabush (the drum roll)… Joeys version of French “Poo!!!” when m sad…and of course the audience reactions of AWWWWWWW!!!! … The British pronunciation of Mobile and “Arse”… Or Rachel’s “Its no that common! It doesn’t happen to every guy! And it is a big deal!” And the winner, the most often used – OH!! MY!! GOD!!!
Hmmmmmmmmmm (sigh)… I simply love it all Though sometimes its embarrassing cuz sum people don get the joke and I get those “what’s wrong with her” looks… But like I said, what the heck, I love them so much that I care two hoots…
In the end the song that sums it all up… it so makes me miss the old days and wish me n my dearest pals could stay together like FRIENDS always
So no one told you life was gonna to be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year
I'll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you
Like I've been there before
I'll be there for you
'Cause you're there for me too
