‘Friends’ Quotes From The Hit 90’s Sitcom

It’s been almost 30 years since Friends permanently embedded itself in our culture and we still can’t stop watching reruns. We hope you enjoy these Friends quotes from one of the greatest sitcoms of all time.

The first episode of Friends aired in 1994, and, after a 236 episode run, and 17 years since the show wrapped up, it is still one of the most popular shows on television.

There is little doubt as to why Friends was and still is so popular. It takes you through the lives of five friends across a period of ten years as they go from figuring out life as a young adult to growing up and settling down. Not your basic sitcom, the characters in Friends are so well-crafted that it is hard not to become attached to them.

Friends is a show that is comfort food. Even if you’ve seen every episode five times, you keep coming back to it every time you need a break, a reminder of when life was simpler, or just need to laugh.

Don’t forget to also check out our list of The Golden Girls quotes from one of America’s favorite sitcoms.

What Friends quote is the most memorable to you?

How many times have you shouted, “We were on a break!”, or knowingly looked at a friend, pointed your fingers at your head, and said, “Unagi.”? Friends is a show that is filled with terrific one-liners like these.

As is television fate, there’s a lot about older shows that don’t hold up to the current times. There’s a lot about Friends that is like that, too. And, while the fashion and technology dates and some of the lines don’t hold up any more, we can forgive the show for its flaws and recognize that it was a product of its time.

Despite being quintessentially 90s, the characters and situations they face are totally human, making Friends still relatable even 30 years later.
