11 hilarious ‘Friends’ moments that we had to stick on a t-shirt

US sitcom Friends had audiences laughing, crying and “Oh… my… God”-ing for a decade. For over 236 episodes, we were captivated by the show’s quick-wit, one-liners and honest perspective on the importance of friendship. Although the final episode, ‘The Last One – Part 2’ aired over 13 years ago (on May 6 2004), the popularity of Friends hasn’t subsided.

With speculation of a reunion (again) and Friends! The Musical! debuting in New York later this year, we can’t think of a better time to binge-watch all 10 seasons and browse our merch collection inspired by the most memorable moments from Friends.
