Unless you live under a rock, you've probably heard of the hit 90s sitcom, Friends, AKA one of the best television shows ever made. If you're like me, you probably even quote the show all the time.

This show is iconic. It's filled with relatable quotes and scenarios as you follow six on-screen besties you could ever want: Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross. They all have completely different personalities, yet they made one crazy, awesome friend group that everyone can relate to.

That's just what these Friends quotes show you!

A few years ago, I decided to watch the whole series in order and it reminded me how much I love the show. There were so many incredible moments that I'll never forget.

Friends is an absolute classic that never gets old. I'm always entertained, even if I'm watching an episode I've seen a thousand times. 

Some crazy scenarios popped up in the show, and somehow it's still relatable to all of us living in the real world. Not everyone can magically have a huge apartment in New York City big enough to host parties and hangouts, but you get the point.

Friends has some of the best TV lines out there and I always crack up just thinking about them. Each character's personality shines through in the things they say. If you know them well enough, you can easily tell who said what before even seeing their name.
