The reunion we all wanted to see is finally here. The Friends Reunion special is available on HBO Max.
Here are the best moments from the Friends reunion-
1. The Quiz
David became Ross again and assumed the role of quizmaster. He asked questions from the original quiz from the episode The One with the Embryos and brand new questions written especially for the reunion. Matt knew who played his hand twin, it was Thomas Lennon. The cast identified the voices of Tom Selleck ( Richard) and Larry Hankin ( Mr. Heckles) and then they appeared. The best thing we saw in the reunion was that nobody still knew what Chandler’s job was, not even Matthew.
2. The Stars Arriving on the Set
Even if the reunion was just the cast greeting one another and talking about memories while walking around the set, we all would have loved it. The gimmicks, the interview by James Corden were unnecessary since we would have happily watched the cast talk to each other while joking and writing lines on the table and revisiting their chairs. We would love for the show makers to release all extra footage of the cast members interacting if there is any.
3. David and Jen’s Huge Confession
The most unexpected thing in the special was David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston confessing that they loved each other when the first season was being filmed. However, they sadly admitted that nothing happened between them because the timing was not right and they shared their first kiss on screen. The best section of this whole conversation was when Matt called Bullshit to David and Jen claiming they did not cross the boundary. However, he later said he was joking.
4. Marcel was not loved by David Schwimmer
Turns out, David did not like Ross’s monkey, Marcel. David shared that Katie, that was the name of the monkey, would eat live grub and it would be all over her hands. When she would jump on David’s shoulders for the shoot, and put her hands in his hair, the grub would get on him as well. He did not enjoy that.
5. The Bug
David was talking about his decision to come back to TV with the pilot episode of Friends when Lisa screamed about there being a bug. David never continued his story and we never got to find out more about his career decision. Lisa however continued to scream until the bug was gone.
6. Joey’s Injury
Do you remember The One Where No One’s Ready? There is a scene where Joey jumps on the chair while arguing with Chandler. During the fourth take, Matt ended up dislocating his shoulder and was also seen wearing a sling in the next episodes. But the crew had to delay the shoot of that episode until Matt was healed. The stars watched the scene where the injury took place and Jennifer was scared the whole time.
