I’ll Be There For You: The One About Friends by Kelsey Miller


☕️ This show is really my happy pill. It’s so cool to learn that its original title was Insomnia Cafe, and then it was changed to Friends Like Us, and then it just simply became Friends.

☕️ The role of Rachel was originally written for Courtney Cox, but she insisted that she was Monica.

☕️ Jennifer Aniston also said that she was meant to play Rachel.

☕️ The all-time greatest episode of Friends is “The One Where Everybody Finds Out”.

☕️ You’re not the only person who wondered why they always got the couch at Central Perk, how they ever got anything done when they were just always sitting around, and how they could afford all those lattes.

☕️ The cast also had great misgivings about the Rachel and Joey romance.

☕️ The creators of Friends initially planned on including a Monica-Joey love story because they are the most sexual of the bunch.

☕️ Matt LeBlanc basically Joey’d his way to stardom.

☕️ Hank Azaria, who played Phoebe’s David the Scientist Guy, also auditioned for Joey Tribbiani’s part.

For people who keep asking why we’re just so crazy about this show, the author couldn’t have said it any better:

“Life happens, friendships change – and change is the worst. So, no wonder I’d gone back to something familiar. ‘Friends’ was a way to revisit the time in my life that was fading, slowly but steadily, into memory. 
True, it was just an old sitcom. Yes, in most respects, it bore no resemblance to my own experience. But in the only way that mattered, it did. It was a show about friendship. And like old friends, it never really went away.”
