The world’s most famous sitcom, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, definitely holds an immense part in the heart of its fans.

Even if someone has never watched the show or doesn’t even like it, they surely came across clips or memes of Ross and Rachel’s “break”, Chandler’s sarcasm, Monica’s obsession with cleaning, Phoebe’s iconic guitar songs, and Joey’s “how you doin'”.

Many people have even watched all 236 episodes more than once because of the huge influence that actors Jennifer Anniston, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and Matthew Perry had on the world.
