We’ll Be There For You: The FRIENDS Resurgence

by

You know what’s really cool about the fact that FRIENDS is on Netflix now? Besides the fact that now we get to spend hours upon hours sitting glassy-eyed in front of the TV watching the Gellers et al, rousing from immobility only to click “yes” when Netflix asks if we’re still watching?

Here’s what’s cool: We have every FRIENDS script in our library, along with a few other materials. That’s right: Every. Damn. Episode. All the ones on this list and this list and this list.

We have the episode with the “moo point” joke in it (“The One Where Chandler Doesn’t Like Dogs”). We have the episode that brought the word “transpondster” into the popular lexicon (“The One With The Embryos”). We have the one where Ross absolutely loses it over a sandwich featuring a gravy-soaked piece of bread called a “moist-maker” (“The One With Ross’ Sandwich”).

And we have the original pitch document – originally titled INSOMNIA CAFE – written by David Crane and Marta Kauffman. Don’t believe us? Well, here it is, Ms. Chanandler Bong:

Well, that’s the first page, anyway. To see the rest, you’ll need to come into the library.

Over the coming weeks we’ll post a few pages from some of our favorite episodes, like the ones mentioned above (“The One With The Embryos” is my personal favorite).

But there’s more – check out some of our other FRIENDS posts:
