Are You A Friend?

I have a theory that everyone who watches Friends chooses the one they think they are most like as their favourite. 

I never said it was a good theory.  Or that I could write a coherent sentence.

Which one are you?

    Was not keen on friends 🙂

    I used to like Friends a lot and Rachel was my favourite character throughout it all but I associate myself mostly with Pheobe – who annoys me terribly in Friends.

    I may have messed it up and voted twice 😉

      It won’t let you; don’t worry.

        OK, so I voted Phoebe. But my husband liked her the least and would freak out if he knew I picked her!!

        And which one are you?

    I think you’re right. Most people identify with one of the characters and that makes everyone like the show better.

    I look like Rachel, go with the flow like Phoebe, and fix delicious meals like Monica.

    I have ALL of their good attributes . . . and NONE of their weakness. 😉

    Friends… the best TV there was 😛

    Phoebe was always my favorite character but I’m a lot like Monica, controlling borderline OCD. I’m not loud like her though, except when I yell at my kids…

    That was great. Just like those Jackie questionnaires all those years ago…

      lol! I’d forgotten those. Must have been my source material.

    I voted for myself as Chandler, since I do know he’s the one I’m most like, but the problem is that he always really got on my nerves…

    I liked Chandler – I can relate using humor as a defense mechanism.

    Apart from watching 15 minutes of an episode on an airoplane where the sound kept going out because the headphones were faulty, (and I gave up trying to watch anything at all) I have to confess that I’ve never seen Friends.
    I’ve also never seen a whole host of other mega popular programmes but have at least heard of the titles.
    (sigh) does that mean I have a life, or I need a life LOL?

      😀 You should give it a go. I wasn’t a fan first time around. Now I’ve seen them all at least four times 🙂

    I’m more of a weird, self-assured first child who uses humor as a defense mechanism.

    I didn’t vote because, frankly, I see a little of each one’s character flaws in myself. What a funny show with snappy dialogue. Hard to believe 6 people could have such chemistry together.

    By the way, who is worse, the one who writes an incoherent sentence or the one who understands it?

    I never really got into “Friends” but my boss IS Monica. And probably I’m Phoebe. But I’d like to be Rachel.
    So maybe I caught a few.
    There were enough episodes that’s for sure.


    • Tilly Bud August 20, 2011 at 09:20 #

      About 26 per series; 10 series. Which I’ve watched at least three times. 🙂

    Confession time… I don’t watch Friends, and I might be one of a handful of people on the planet who have not seen a single episode of the show. I know what it is and who the characters are and all that, I just never watched it. 🙂

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
