The friendship we see in F.R.I.E.N.D.S is the kind of friendship we want, especially the one that Joey and Phoebe share.
Throughout the entire run of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, the gang was super tight and showed up for each other always. But we love what Phoebe and Joey shared as a friendship. The relationship between Phoebe, the weird yet eccentric one of the group, and Joey, the charming yet seemingly immature person in the group has been the most accurate portrayal of ‘best friends’. From standing up for each other in tough times to sharing crazy theories and personalities, they have defined a friendship in more than one way.
Yes with these six friends you can hardly ever figure out best friends between them. But if true friendship with utter and utmost acceptance and understanding had a face it would be of Joey and Phoebe. And no it’s not just because of Matt Le Blanc and Lisa Kudrow’s brilliant acting skills but also because of the way their arch has been written. And maybe at one point, it made us all wish that they would probably end up together but we are kind of glad that they rather chose to be friends.
Proof that Joey and Phoebe define friendship goals!
Phoebe’s cool weirdness matches Joey’s charming dumbness
