About This Quiz

There’s no denying that Friends is one of the most popular shows of all time. One of the best indicators of this is the fact that it ended way back in 2004, but is still constantly airing and streaming on television sets all around the world! The show ran for 10 successful seasons and was known for having one of the best ensemble casts. Starring Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer, this show was responsible for making these actors some of Hollywood's biggest stars. With popular shows like this, fans love to know if their favorite characters are anything like the actor in real life, and while they all played their roles pretty darn well, Courteney Cox is said to have been the most like her character!

Cox played the character of Monica Geller, a high-strung perfectionist who was kind of the matriarch of the gang, which is a role she took on with the cast as well. She was hilarious to watch and basically the one who constantly brought the whole group together, so without her there would be no ‘Friends’ — no big deal or anything! Since we love Monica Geller (and Courteney Cox) so much, we’ve decided to take a walk down memory lane and see how much we remember about her character specifically. If you consider yourself to be a huge Friends fan who knows A LOT about the show, then we challenge you to this quiz! Take this quiz and find out just how well you know Monica Geller…
