You Deserve The Truth About A Friends Reunion

by ParentCo. January 13, 2016

Does the phrase "WE WERE ON A BREAK!" mean anything to you? Do you call your soul mate your "lobster?" Did you ever instruct a hairdresser to give you "The Rachel?" Ever used this satisfying alternative? Better yet, have you, in an exhausted, middle of the night wake-up stupor ever attempted to lull a baby back to sleep with "Smelly Cat?" If so, you'll likely be as excited as I was to read the headline "A Friend's Reunion is Finally Happening." (And also, I like you. You're my people.) But if this is the first you're hearing about it, let me save you the disappointment of that misleading clickbait. Yes, NBC has locked in all 6 original cast members for a two hour special that will be aired on February 21. However, the special is in honor of legendary comedy director, James Burrows. And so far, NBC head Bob Greeblatt, can't confirm that they'll even cram Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler, and Joey into the same room. Listen, folks. It's not like they're the g-d Wu Tang Clan. First of all, none of them are dead. Second, they each made like eleventy billion dollars on those roles. We are not asking too much to just see them all in one place for five stinking minutes. Look how happy they once were to stand in front of the window together? While the potential is there, I'm not doing this quite yet. H/T Time
