With the kind of chemistry that Ross and Rachel and Chandler and Monica (and, yes, Joey and Rachel) shared in the multiple seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, it is common for one to question whether the cast mates ever dated or even hooked up. However, it appears that the team made the wise move of making a ‘no-hookup’ pact because it could have ruined their dynamics on the show.
“There was a rule that we had, it was really important to the six of us that we kept a friendship, that we were friends. And if we were hooking up or there was any strangeness going on, that might mess with things. So we kept a friendship and we did become really good friends. And we are really good friends to this day. And we kept that going. And that was really important. Jim Burrows [director] initiated that and we kept that going,” Matthew Perry, who played Chandler Bing told a leading entertainment portal.
The much-awaited reunion episode was released today, after a long wait of over 17 years and the internet cannot keep calm. The merry bunch of six still have the same warm vibe they exuded in the 90s and early 2000s and while a lot has changed in real life, we can take comfort in the fact that they’ll always be there for us.
