We all remember the laughs, the hairstyles, the coffee shop, the dating each other, and Smelly Cat. Six friends who live in New York and are trying to negotiate being adults meaning work and relationships. It worked as a series because they all were different. Monica (played by Courtney Cox) was the neat and control freak. Chandler (played by Matthew Perry) was the funny guy. Joey (played by Matt LeBlanc) was the himbo. Rachel (played by Jennifer Aniston) was the pretty girl trying to adjust to life not being the spoiled princess. Ross (played by David Schwimmer) was the nice guy with the secret crush on Rachel. And finally, Phoebe (played by Lisa Kudrow) was the loveable eccentric. This is where it all began.
