7 Quotes From ‘Friends’ That Will Get You Through Holiday Reunions



‘Friends’ was truly an iconic sitcom. A lot of people in this generation grew up watching its 10-season run. It’s so good that even kids these days appreciate its humor. It’s not every day that you’ll come across a really good sitcom like this.

Apparently, having six people with very different personalities gives the viewers more than just a good laugh. Who would have thought that you can quote these people to get through a really bad holiday reunion? With relatives that are out there to get you, arm yourself with quotes that will help you get through any conversation. From small talks to interrogations, these quotes will surely get you out of any situation at your upcoming holiday reunions.

“How you doin’?”

A really good Joey impression can go a long way. It can either do one of two things: get ignored or spark up a ‘Friends’-related conversation. So if you’re forced to talk to people, this is the only way you can begin one… or end it before it even begins.

“I don’t even have a pla.”

A lot of relatives would ask you about your plans in the future. What’s next? Are you finally going to follow Tita’s advice to migrate? Or will you hear a cousin out about investing in bitcoin? Whatever the question is, Phoebe has the perfect answer for it: “I don’t even have a pla.”

“Moo point”

Joey could be a genius for all we know. Every time a relative speaks up about anything or asks for your opinion about anything, just give them the word. It’s all just “moo point”. To reveal what it means is all up to your discretion—it will leave them confused anyway.

“Oh I wish I could, but I don’t want to.”

There are many things our relatives want us to do—more than we do ourselves. Some are really good ideas but some are simply not our cup of tea. If this comes up in any of the many conversations you will have that night, it’s best to channel your inner Phoebe and drop this line.

“A transponster.”

“That’s not even a word!” Some relatives ask about jobs just for the sake of comparing incomes. It’s probably one of the many awful parts of a reunion. If somebody asks what you do or what your better half (or special someone) does, you know what to tell them.

“Je depli mblue.”

Nothing beats foreign language skills like Joey’s French skills. There are ways to have yourself some fun at a reunion. If anyone shows off at a reunion, the best way to rain on their parade is to sound like the French man Joey isn’t. “Oh, de fuff!”

“If it’s a girl, Phoebe. And it it’s a boy, Pheebo.”

Everybody must really identify with Phoebe. She can’t be even more relatable. Asking what to name someone’s child always comes up as a topic in reunions. It can either be about what you’re about to name yours (funny when they ask you this and you’re not even married) or what a relative should name their 8-month-old unborn angel. If you’re running out of ideas, there are only two names you have to remember: Phoebe and Pheebo.
