Rachel Green, Ross Geller, Monica Geller, Joey Tribbiani, Chandler Bing and Phoebe Buffay are six 20 something year-olds, living off of one another in the heart of New York City. Over the course of ten years, this average group of buddies goes through massive mayhem, family trouble, past and future romances, fights, laughs, tears and surprises as they learn what it really means to be a friend.
Being mistaken for being gay has been a problem for all of the Friends. Monica's maid thinks she's gay when she is trying to identify her stolen jeans. Ross tells off a student for trying to charm better grades out of him and it looks like a break-up. Rachel tries to relive her wilder days with Melissa. Joey has a huge gay fanbase. Phoebe is driven to pretend to be one of Ben's Mommies when she's trying to get free Sting tickets, and it is the bane of Chandler's life. See more »

[Ross is about to tell Rachel that he loves her before she leaves for Paris, but Gunther walks up to her first]
I... I know you're leaving tonight, but I just have to tell you. I love you. I... I don't know if that changes your plans at all, but I thought you should know.
Gunther... Oh... I love you too. Probably not in the same way, but I do. And, and when I'm in a café, having coffee, or I see a man with hair brighter than the sun, I'll think of you. Aw.
[kisses him on the cheek]

In the two episodes "The One That Could Have Been" (Part 1 & 2) the opening credits have been changed: you see the alter-egos of the cast members in the "alternate reality" (Monica still being fat, Joey as famous actor etc.). See more »
The episode "The One Where Rachel Tells..." originally featured Chandler making a joke about bombs at the airport on their honeymoon and was due to air soon after the events of 11 September 2001. The episode was rewritten, but the original scene is included on the Region 2 DVD. See more »
'Friends' is simply the best series ever aired. The acting is amazing; after watching a few episodes you stop referring to the actors by their real names altogether, even if they appear in another movie. The characters are addictive, none are completely positive or negative. It would be quite easy to get along with or to be very annoyed by any of them in real life. Yet, all of them together (or even divided in groups) create this amazing chemistry that most people desire and few lucky ones have. The humor is wonderful, no matter what type of humor you like, you will get to a point where you will find at least something absolutely hilarious. There is slapstick, some light humor, some dark humor, some raunchiness, some cheesiness - a little bit of everything. The story is captivating; viewers keep coming back to see what situation fate (being the writers) puts the characters in today. It is truly a television masterpiece.
There are, however, many people who scoff at the mentioning of 'Friends'. My guess is they've never seen or paid attention to the show. It's easy to discard something because "everyone likes it" and be "unique", when in reality the uniqueness is actually bias. Just watch a few episodes with before making any judgements - chances are you'll fall in love with it too. I would have serious doubts about one's sense of humor if I heard that they hated 'Friends'.
