Ranking the Best Roommate Pairings from ‘Friends’

By Nadia Chaudhury | Seriously Random Lists | April 23, 2014 | Comments ()


13. Joey & Janine
Because you should NEVER live with someone you want to sleep with.

12. Monica & Phoebe
Because Phoebe secretly moved out without Monica realizing it at all.

11. Joey & Rachel
Because Joey shouldn’t have let his pregnant friend move in when he’s in love with her.

10. Monica & Chandler
Because of the one with the true love and all that junk (part one).

9. Phoebe & Mike
Because of the one with the true love and all that junk (part two).

8. Phoebe & Gary
Because Gary killed a bird when it chirped too much. Not cool.

7. Chandler & Eddie
Because of that poor, poor fish.

6. Ross & Rachel
Because of baby Emma and the awkwardness of living with Rachel’s baby daddy ex-boyfriend who’s her true lobster.

5. Joey & Phoebe
Because it should’ve been true love.

4. Phoebe & Rachel
Because of coveting overpriced fake vintage furniture together.

3. Chandler, Joey, & Ross
Because two grown men, and whatever Ross is, living in a two-bedroom apartment can still build forts and play Cowboys and Indians, and it’s not ENTIRELY creepy.

2. Monica & Rachel
Because this began it all.

1. Chandler & Joey
Because chick and duck, foosball, and barca loungers.

Nadia Chaudhury would want to live with just chick and duck, please.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Aaron Schulz

    You misspelled Paul Rudds characters name. Its Crap Bag. Real easy to remember, just think of a bag, of crap.

  • mairimba

    Phoebe never lived with Gary. They talked about moving in, but never did cause she broke up with him that morning she stayed at his place and he shot the bird.

    I don't think Phoebe and Joey ever lived together either. When her apartment caught fire her and Rachel were trying to decide who was going to stay with Monica and Chandler and who was going to stay with Joey. Rachel let Phoebe stay with Mon cause the fire was Rachel's fault. Then Phoebe tried to switch cause Monica made her eat cookies over the sink.

    I loved when Mike moved in with Phoebe, and she had to give away her artwork of the ladies coming out of the frames. The best part was Joey's pure fear.

  • Danar the Barbarian

    Those FUCKING pictures still show up in my nightmares sometimes. Whoever you are, dizzylucy, I swear I will kick your ass if they show up in my nightmares tonight, because you made me picture them in their hellish, floppy-headed splendor!

  • dizzylucy

    I believe Rachel told Joey a story about what they do at night. Should I try to remember that now for you?

  • Danar the Barbarian

    (Shudder) NO.

  • Holy crap, I'd totally forgotten about Joey and Rachel, and when I thought of it it was the exact same reaction I had back then: "WHAT? WHAT? NOO. EW! EEWW! NOOO!"

  • John W

    Two Grown Men and whatever Ross is, a brand new "broad" comedy coming this fall on NBC.

    (will be replacing Hannibal...)

  • Tecuya

    As I was reading this post I was thinking, "This person has watched WAY too much Friends." Then I realized I understood every single photo reference.

  • Danar the Barbarian

    Me too, and I regret nothing. I came really late to the show, and I still will catch one on syndication that I had never seen before. Say what you want, it was a funny, sweet show. Not ashamed!

  • lukebc

    I was working 80-90-100 hours/week when this show was out so I only got glimpses of it.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I always wondered how much Pottery Barn paid the producers for the 22 minute product placement episode.

  • Nicole_OCTV

    I still kind of covet the apothecary table from colonial times.

  • profession: none, or starlet

    "Well, there was... yore..."

  • Cree83

    I know Mike was a bit of a Johnny come lately, but come on, he was awesome. They get points deducted because they broke up the first time they tried to move in together, but I still think they rank above Ross and Rachel.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Not to mention he's PFR (Paul F*cking Rudd)!

  • zeke_the_pig

    Can we make that acronym a thing?

  • zeke_the_pig

    You're goddamn right. No contest.
    And this is on a slight tangent, but I don't care, it can't be said enough: 'That's Miss Chanandler Bong!'

  • Bert_McGurt

    Joey and Pheebs would have had the dumbest, cutest kids around.

  • Blake Shrapnel

    Chandler and no one. Because fuck you Matthew Perry, that's why.

  • emilya

    hey now, matthew perry is awesome. he was great in go on, mr. sunshine, the good wife, and regardless of how one feels about studio 60 as a show, he did a great job bringing aaron sorkin's words/demons to life. also, he bought a house and set up a charity so men with substance abuse problems could go to the house and get help. that's pretty awesome in my book.

  • Blake Shrapnel

    Damn it, I HAVE MY REASONS.

  • Jericho Smith

    It's been ten years, you probably have a life to get on with...
