I was only four years old when I first discovered Friends, and it’s incredible how this show has remained a beloved part of my life. It’s a delightful series that always brings joy, and I can’t believe I’m still such a devoted fan.

As one of the best feel-good programs out there, Friends has expanded beyond the screen, with board games, game shows, calendars, posters, and books adding to its legacy.

With so many iconic quotes from the show, I compiled a collection of the most popular and frequently shared ones. Have you ever wondered which source of these quotes has garnered the most likes and shares on social media?
