Joseph Francis Tribbiani Jr. aka Joey Tribbiani played by Matt LeBlanc
“Joey doesn’t share food“, Oh, I tell you every time Joey said that I totally felt it.Joey is undoubtedly the best and of course one of my favorite characters from the F.R.I.E.N.D.S, I totally ship his friendship with the rest of his friends and the dedication and love he has for them He seems more like an inspiration to me, you might be giggling, I know right!
I see him as an inspiration because he has always been their for the people that need him, he has the most childish yet the most innocent nature out of all the people and remains transparent with everyone he meets also then their is food of course , that is an additional point too, why not? Even I drool over pizzas.
Joey is the lovable person on Friends who is often described as a shallow womanizer whose not too bright. His life revolves around eating and becoming a famous actor. He has some terrific qualities like his endless optimism, fierce loyalty, and gentle nature. There is a lot more to Joey than meets the eye and I almost forgot to ask, ‘How you doin’?
Phoebe Buffay played by Lisa Kudrow
“Smelly cat, smelly cat what are they feeding you” , well who doesn’t remember that classic. Dear Phoebe I admire you, you are quirky yet the most down to earth person, you have a precious heart.
She is the most mysterious one in the group, the fact that she was a lonely teenager and had to face a lot of dilemma during her childhood increases my love and respect for this character. She also has a twin sister Ursula Buffay who always keeps a grudge against Phoebe for no reason at all.
She helps her brother by being a surrogate to his triplets, this shows how selfless and caring her character was.
Phoebe feels like a survivor to me who is always their for the help, She found the love of her life Mike and got married to him, she donated her savings for the wedding to the children in need.She is the most quirky yet straightforward person in the group and I just forgot to mention how beautiful she is, ‘Oh God, my eyes, my eyes‘.

Monica is the character who binds everyone together, she is like the ‘mother’ of the group, she is competitive, obsessive, and detail-oriented and a little dominating but most importantly she is the loyal and caring one in the group.Monica is a chef by profession which also explains the energetic behavior.

He helps Joey, his roommate in every way possible , be it financial or emotional he is always there for him.He was also Ross Geller’s college friend which is how he met Monica for the first time.
