About This Quiz

"Friends" was a hit from the beginning and continually gained fans throughout the life of the series — and still to this day, thanks to streaming services. Not only were Phoebe, Rachel, Joey, Monica, Chandler and Ross six young, vibrant friends in New York, but they also each had a personality that different members of the audience could hold onto. If you were stuck in your ways, you understood Monica's reactions, and if you didn't understand love at all, you probably just wanted to give Ross a hug. These friends came together every week to show us that we didn't always have to agree, but we still did have to recognize what others were going through.
