The Worst Friend Ever

Phoebe.

It's the oh so familiar scenario. You're locked in a room and forced to rewrite Friends without one of the characters.

With her hippy clothes, her unrealistic background (of course the other characters have very believable backgrounds), and her Grandmother's cab I'd get rid of her quicker than you can say

"but what does Monica do?"

And, any woman who wears that many rings on that many fingers would just be called a chav over here.

Who would you choose?

Oh but without Phoebe we wouldn't have 'Smelly Cat'! :-(

Very good point Pseudo, well made, in a punchy way I think. And Smelly Cat must be a serious consideration in these matters.

Pseudo got there before I did! :) Yes, Smelly cat should be a serious consideration RD :)
If I had to choose, I'll remove Rachel. Or Monica.

Oh NOOOOOOl!! they all are unique and i can't imagine anyone being thrown away from the show.... nooo i like phoebe.. she is just the odd character who spice up the show….
Well all of them are nice and spicy 

after much thought, id have to say rachel. her main role is ross's love interest and man eye candy. it could be done without her.

btw, nice tagline for your blog. i would agree, halfheartedly.. :)

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

Rannelee - Agreed, but if you HAD to remove one who would you choose

T - But so much of the ongoing storylines were about Rachel and Ross that I couldn't get rid of her. Plus the man eye candy is a very important role, much underrated by females.

Glad you like the tagline, can't remember where I got the idea!

You jealous because she is happy. aren’t you? You happy hater!

Gypsy said...

I LOVE Phoebe. She's quirky and silly. Much like a female Joey.

I hate Ross. I HATE Ross. Ew. He's such a wimp. Ugh.

Spice said...

Pheobe?! noo. she's the quirky one! I'd say Ross too. or Rachel.

Btw, T's comment about your tagline. Reminded me of something I was telling Sach a few days back. I know this somewhat good-looking dude, who looks like a younger version of you ;) you have any sons out there? Can pass you a pic, if you need any confirmation.

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

Gypsy - Now that's what I call a comment spurt, but no way is she like a female Joey.

Spice - as much I'd love to crack a line about not having any sons, at least none that I'm aware of, no, I have none. I would be interested to see the fellow though.

know what I actually watch one series today.. jobless? yes I am :)

i will not remove any of them.. really i just need them all..i like those weird people..

I agree as a character ...Rachel is the weakest and would let her go...But then lot of men would stop watching the show, that I feel....You can not have the chick the duckling and the fooseball table I guess.
