16 Thoughts We Had Watching 'Friends' As Adults

Diply 8 May 2018

Friends was, like, the show to watch back in the '90s and '00s. Despite only being a teenager during that time, we still totally related to everything that happened to the characters.

Watching it back as a somewhat functioning grown-up, I have some serious feelings about everything that went down on this program.

1. There is absolutely no way the gang would spend this much time together day to day.

Unless it was literally their job to hang out together, it's just impossible.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to get six adults together for just a dinner? Polls are involved, and someone always cancels last minute.

2. What, pray tell, are all seven zones, Monica?

Honestly, I have tried to think about this on a regular basis, and I still have no idea what all seven spots are that Monica is referring to. Any suggestions would help.

3. Ross' reaction to having his sandwich eaten was absolutely valid. I legit almost hopped on our office chat and ripped apart my coworkers the second I thought someone ate my lunch.

Someone had just put it in another place in the fridge, but still.

4. Do you have any idea how much a wedding dress costs?! And y'all are just lazing around like it's no big deal?

Put that beer down, take off that dress, hang it up, and think about what you've done.

5. Ross' date would have absolutely called the cops if he had been in the bathroom for so long.

This was a blind date with a guy who was wearing leather pants. Take that and add the fact that he was being sketchy in the bathroom for a while? CALL THE COPS.

6. Why

Riddle me this, lady friends. If a man came up to you and dropped this line on you, what would you say?I, personally, would pick up my drink and make my way over to the other side of the bar. Just look how creepy that leer is. Hard pass, Joe.

7. Who are all of these people that the gang can put on two thriving parties?

They literally hang out with one another. However, whenever they have a gathering, there are multiple people...including Gunther.

8. When did Eddie get so freakin' weird?

Seriously! Eddie was a completely normal human being, and then, he hit a 2007-era Britney Spears phase and started carrying around human heads.

Were we all too busy dealing with our feelings around the Joey and Chandler breakup to notice?

9. Rachel and Monica's fight over a boy would not have been settled in a short amount of time.

They were in their mid-twenties, and I don't care how mature you are, this saltiness would last weeks.

10. Gunther has a Rachel hair doll, right? Okay, just checking.

Like, he legit bought all of Ross' furniture because Rachel had pressed up against it. Why is Gunther not in jail?

11. Who steals someone else's food? If I even see a neighbor's package outside their door, I get suspicious of myself.

Rachel and Chandler are going to burn in hell for stealing their neighbor's cheesecake.

I do not care how fluffy it was.

12. If Ross wasn't able to PIVOT his couch all the way up the stairs, then how on earth did he manage to cut the thing in half? What tool was used? Where did it take place?

How did he get it back to the store? All the questions.

13. I'm honestly still not sure that Ben is really Ross' kid. Remember when Chandler and Joey lost Ben, had to figure out which baby was him, and did so with the flip of a coin?

GIPHY

Guys, what if Cole Sprouse isn't Ben after all?! My whole life would be a lie.

14. I honestly question Monica and Rachel's friendship when it comes to Phoebe. They planned the most sophisticated bachelorette party with no weird stuff whatsoever.

Hi, Monica and Rachel? Yeah, I'd like to introduce you to your best friend, Phoebe. She's weird. She's a weirdo.

15. How do they get so many dates with little to no problems?

Most of their convos start off with, "Oh, I have a date with so-and-so." I would stop, rewind, and play because, well, why was I not informed of this beforehand?

My friends and I know the exact moment someone else has contacted a person they are interested in.

16. How have Monica's parents never seen her drunk by the time she is 30?

Twitter | @friends_quotes1

My parents have seen me drunk on countless occasions. They've also seen me the morning after I have been drunk. Whoops.
