Friends Quotes to Get You Through the Week

Friends is such an iconic show.It is the perfect show to watch when you need a laugh. It is filled with relatable quotes and in honor of the show’s 25th anniversary, here are some of my favorites: 

  1. 1. Welcome to the real world! It sucks. You’re gonna love it. - Monica Geller 

    Between schoolwork and all life’s responsibilities, the real world can feel super overwhelming. Even though adulting is hard, being older offers a lot of cool opportunities and independence that sometimes you just have to embrace! 

  2. 2. Not knowing when to shut up? Yep. That’s my thing. - Ross Geller 

    We all have those moments where we just say the wrong thing at the wrong time. When this happens to you, don’t stress. Forgive yourself first so others can forgive you too. Take time to reflect on how you should apologize and keep in mind that slipping out the wrong thing from time to time happens to all of us. 

  3. 3. I wish I could. But I don’t want to. -Phoebe Buffay

    This is my favorite quote for those lazy days when you feel like putting on a big pair of sweatpants and laying in bed to watch Netflix all day. Remind yourself that it’s okay to have days where you ignore your responsibilities and just relax. 

  4. 4. I’m not great at the advice. Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment? - Chandler Bing

    Your friend calls you at midnight, she just broke up with her boyfriend, and she’s freaking out, and now you’re freaking out because she’s freaking out and now you realize you won’t be sleeping all night because she needs advice but you’re not good at advice and now you’re tired and OMG AHH. Okay, I might be a little dramatic, but I can’t be the only one who freaks out when someone needs advice, and you have to figure out the right thing to say. Although being sarcastic is tempting, if you’re having trouble coming up with advice, just assure your friend that you’re there for them and that you are listening and sympathizing with them. 

  5. 5. I tell you when I actually die, some people are gonna get seriously haunted. - Ross Geller 

    We all have people in our lives that drive us crazy. Instead of wishing karma upon them, preparing to haunt them is definitely way more realistic.  

  6. 6. Isn’t that just kick-you-in-the-crotch-spit-on-your-neck fantastic? - Rachel Green 

    This is for those moments when everything seems to be going wrong and then you just get even more bad news. At this point, you just want to scream and be sarcastic. Sometimes using humor will make you feel better during those tough times. 

  7. 7. Pizza. We like PIZZA! - Joey Tribbiani 

    Today is your day to unleash your inner Joey and order a pizza for yourself. Treat yourself to your favorite pizza and don’t feel bad!

  8. 8. No uterus, no opinion. - Rachel Green 

    Sometimes men can say things that drive us women crazy. Women often get frustrated because men give their opinions on certain topics that they are privileged enough not to experience. If you are ever surrounded by any type of sexist behavior, try to educate men on why their gender is a privilege in society. 

  9. 9. Go tell him he’s cute. What’s the worst that could happen? - Rachel Green

    Encouraging your best friend to make a move on their crush is one of the best and hardest parts of friendships. Sometimes it is easier said than done, but you never know they might actually listen to your good ideas. Your encouragement may just be the reason she ends up her with her dream guy! 

  10. 10. I’ll be there for you! 

    The main line in the theme song. This line reminds us what the whole show is about. It’s about being there for your friends through everything in life. Find friends who will be there for you through the rollercoaster of emotions life has to offer!
