Can you believe your best friend Phoebe Buffay is turning 49 today? The quirkiest character on Friends is still has a bounce in her step as she continues working on her Showtime series Web Therapy and other various projects. With a CV chock full of killer roles, my personal favorite being Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion (“I’m the Mary, and you’re the Rhoda!”) Kudrow still thrives on entertaining audiences.

Let’s revisit the eccentric role that made her a television icon.

I am a bona fide Friends devotee. I’m not a huge fan of sitcoms, but this show is a diamond in the laugh-track rough. I DVR the syndicated episodes played in 2 hour blocks on TBS everyday and instantly watch them back-to-back once I return home from work. And I like telling people that I’m just “hanging out with my friends.” Maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned that.


Friends is a show I unconsciously allude to everyday and I tend to quote Kudrow’s character, Phoebe Buffay, the most. Her off-beat commentary and dialogue contribute the strangest element to the show, therefore making her unpredictable nature the most interesting to watch.

Which character is your favorite and why? What is your favorite Phoebe quote?
