Could These 'Friends' Quotes BE More Underrated?

Friends is a pop culture giant and the sitcom has invaded not just our screens but also our vernacular (and our hearts). Friends is eminently quotable, so much so that some of the show's quotes have been overused to the point of exhaustion. No one will think I'm clever if I drop a "could I BE wearing any more clothes?" when I'm bundled up for winter because it's such an obvious reference. I like to think of myself as being the most diehard Friends fan of all but, let's be real, Friends has withstood the test of time because almost everyone is a diehard Friends fan.

With all the talk about Friends on Netflix lately, I've become more aware of how much I quote Friends without even realizing it. I'm pretty sure my brain is made up of roughly 70 percent Friends quotes, 20 percent early '00s rap lyrics, and 10 percent usable knowledge. With all 236 episodes of Friends now readily available on for steaming, I think it's high time we step up our game and leave the overused Friends quotes to the novice-level Friends fans.

Be gone, basic Friends quotes. Say goodbye to your "he's her lobster" references and your "pivot" jokes. Welcome to a more sophisticated level of Friends fandom with these Friends quotes.
