Friends is a legendary show that many of us have rewatched countless times. It’s one of those comfort shows that you just have on in the background, it’s what you turn on when you feel lonely, it’s just as good even after you know all of the plotlines by heart. Some fans even claim to know every line by heart, which seems like a huge commitment considering there are ten seasons. But we’re not gonna test you on every line. Let’s see if you remember just first and last lines of these Friends characters we all love.

So let’s set the scene. The show opens on the scene of Monica, Joey, Chandler and Phoebe sitting in the Central Perk discussing a guy Monica is going out with. 


Monica’s first line is actually the first line in the show. She says “There’s nothing to tell! It’s just some guy I work with.”

Her last line is in the last episode, Monica and Chandler are moving out of the iconic apartment. Monica’s last words are “We’ve got some time”, responding to Rachel’s question about whether they have to leave immediately or if they have some time to grab a cup of coffee.


Joey’s first line is making fun of Monica by insinuating there has got to be something wrong with the guy she’s going out with. He says “Come on! You’re going out with the guy. There’s gotta be something wrong with him.”

His last line is “Yeah. I guess so” in response to Phoebe’s last line (do you remember it? If not you’ll know in a few paragraphs).


The first thing Chandler does is tease Monica too. “So does he have a hump? A hump and a hairpiece”.

And of course, in true Chandler fashion, his last line is sarcastic too. He agrees to have a coffee with the gang before they leave the city and says “Sure. where?” As if there’s any other option but their beloved Central Perk.


Phoebe establishes her weird and adorable personality with her first line “Wait, does he eat chalk? Just cause I don’t want her to go through what I went through with Carl.”

Her last words come right after the gang all leave their keys to the apartment on the kitchen aisle. She says “So, I guess this is it.” It really felt like the end of an era.
