Tag Tuesday

THE F.R.I.E.N.D.S TAG

Screen Shot 2017-02-27 at 20.04.02.png

Hello again! I thought I’d do another Tag Tuesday this week. They started off as being something I did pretty religiously every week, and now they’re becoming a little bit less frequent as I find myself having ideas for other posts. But I still enjoy doing them, so for now I’m going to keep them, they just probably won’t be on here every single week.

This week I wanted to go with a theme I hadn’t talked about on the blog yet… Friends! It was quite hard finding questions for this one. Anytime I searched for it, I’d get a load up about friendships rather than the TV show. But in the end, I found these ones from Lex Ryser over on YouTube. There weren’t many questions so I decided to add a few of my own. So 1-7 are the original questions and 8-15 are the ones I added. Feel free to play along and answer the questions yourself either in the comments, on your blog or in a video. If you do decide to then let me know, I love comparing my answers to other people.

1. Favourite episode?
The One with Princess Consuela. I’ll happily re-watch this one again and again – from the name changing antics to Joey looking around Monica and Chandler’s new house with the “little girl ghost”. It never fails to make me laugh!

2. Least favourite episode?
The One with the Sharks (season 9, episode 4). The main storyline when Monica thinks Chandler is into shark porn is ridiculous. The smaller episode storylines with Phoebe’s fake crazy ex ‘Vikram’ and Joey hooking up with a girl who he thinks he’s slept with before, are just as bad.

3. Who is your favourite Friend?
It’s a tough one, but it’s probably Rachel. I always wanted to be her when I watched it as a teenager!

4. Who is your least favourite Friend?
Phoebe, definitely. I find her weird and quirky ways quite annoying. She’s also the least connected to the others. I feel like you could completely cut her out of the whole series and it wouldn’t make much of a difference.

5. Which of the Friends best represents yourself?
Monica, I’m very organised and tidy like she is. And I’m super ambitious too. Oh and I’m the most competitive person when it comes to games.

6. Favourite romantic pairing?
Rachel and Ross. The whole will they/won’t they thing had me, just like everyone else, hooked for the whole ten seasons. And I was so glad she got off the plane!

7. What is your favourite quote?
Okay it’s a really random one, but it’s one we’re always quoting in my house. It’s in season 9, episode 8 in The One with Rachel’s Other Sister and it’s when Rachel and Amy are having an argument about who will look after baby Emma if Ross and Rachel were to die. Amy gets annoyed that Rachel doesn’t trust her and never does anything for her, like not even letting her use Rachel’s Ralph Lauren discount. And an angry Amy says “let me tell you something, your baby isn’t even that cute”. And then suddenly Ross slides into shot and says all seriously “too far Amy, too far”. Like I said, most people won’t understand why this particular quote is so funny, but every time I see that episode, I can’t stop laughing at that one line.

and then I added some of my own questions…

8. Which of Phoebe’s songs is your favourite?
I’ve got to go with the classic. Smelly Cat, of course.

9. Which is your favourite season?
They all have their merits (and their downfalls) but overall I’d probably have to say season 8. It involved the whole pregnancy with Rachel, and the development of her relationship with Ross. You get to see Monica and Chandler starting their married life together and it fell in the year that the show won the Emmy for Best Comedy Series – so I can’t be the only one who thought this series was good.

10. Which is your favourite episode(s) not set in New York?
The ones in London – The One with Ross’s Wedding Part One and Two, and The One After Ross Says Rachel. I love the drama with Rachel and will she stop the wedding, and then Ross saying her name. And I love the excitement of Monica and Chandler getting together and the shock that bought us. It was just a brilliant season finale, probably the best they did (other than the final episode).

11. Favourite guest star?
Brad Pitt as Ross’s old high school friend, Will. It reminds us all of the glory days when Brad and Jen were a couple, and he features in one of the funniest episodes – The One with the Rumour.

12. Who is your favourite secondary character?
It’s got to be Gunther. I feel sorry for him constantly with the whole Rachel situation but I can’t help but find it hilarious.

13. Who is your least favourite secondary character?
Ugh, Janice. She’s so incredibly annoying.

1

14. Which wedding is your favourite?
Monica and Chandler’s. All the drama with Joey being late, Chandler going missing and Rachel being pregnant. Plus, it’s the sweetest of them all.

1

15. Which is your favourite birth on the show?
The birth of the twins in The Last One – Part One. I feel like I was with all the other fans in being so happy that Monica and Chandler were finally parents. And of course, I didn’t see the big surprise coming that it would be twins. It was just a perfect way to end their storyline.

So there we go. This brought back so many happy memories of watching it on our black and white TV in the kitchen before school (I know, so old school right?). I’m sure there are plenty of other Friends fans out there, so I’ll leave you with one parting question. A question that divides fans completely… Should they make a Friends movie, looking at their lives now? Personally I’d love them to do something like that, but I know so many people are against it. So let me know, where do you stand on this argument?

  1. Aw amazing tag! Loved the questions you added, definitely going to have to do this one!! 🌸 major friends fan is an understatement. My favourite quote has to be “you rambled on for 18 pages…front and back”… but to be honest that entire scene is awesome, how chandler comes out from behind the door and goes “I KNEW IT” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Aw yay! Send me the link when you do, I want to compare answers 😊 Oh my gosh it was so hard picking just one quote! I love that part, and I love some of the other longer quotes like the one with Monica when she’s like “married a gay ice dancer… lives in a box”. That one! And in the one where Ross got high and the entire scene when Monica and Ross are revealing things to their parents, that one makes me laugh so much! πŸ˜‚

      1. OMG yes! The one where Ross got high is my favourite episode along with the classic, the one with the prom video πŸ™ˆ and will do!
