    I agree with you, would have been too cliche. They would have been the funniest couple EVER, though.

    I was one of the few that never wanted Joey and Phoebe together. It just wouldn't have worked, they were great friends, but I could never picture them dating.

    I totally agree with you. They are best friends. And should everybody of the six end up together in couples? This is not very belivable.

    yea, while they did have "moments", their relationship was almost purely platonic. They were just friends, bottom line. And what hella_ilieva said, it wouldnt have been believable

    It would have been interesting but the show needed at least two friends that didn't hook up with each other. Might as well have been those two.

    I completely agree. If the six ended up in three couples that would've been too much. Phoebe and Joey are great friends, but I could never picture them as lovers.

    I think Joey and Phoebe would've been possibly the funniest couple. Everytime they hinted at them getting together (in Season 5 and onwards), I always thought it'd be funny. I don't think I could imagine them in love though. I'd've liked it best if they were 40, so got married because of the whole 'backup' plan in TOW The Proposal.

    I'm sure if Phoebe and Joey got together a lot of people would criticize the fact that all 6 'Friends' paired off.

    I actually thought Phoebe and Gary the cop made a good couple. Shame he shot that bird and it didn't work out...

    Anyway I stand by what I said, Phoebe and Joey were destined to remain good friends. I think it was hinted that Phoebe had a thing for Joey sometimes but it wasn't requited.

    I can imagine them together in what I call a "Monica and Chandler" way. That is, they would be a couple that never really acted like a couple, just friends. Sort of like married friends with benefits.

    Phoebe and Joey always had a sort of chemistry, for instance when Joey proposed to her and she was flirting like crazy. If they would be a couple like that the whole time, then it would make for some fantastic TV, PLUS having 6 Friends turning into 3 couples.

    I always thought she had a thing for Joey too that was hinted at..I thought I was the only one lol. But yea, like everyone said, it wouldve been too much if they were together. Ross and Rachel were THE couple, and I love Chandler and Monica together, so unforunately Joey and Phoebe had to be "left out" I guess you could say.

    No I dont think Phoebe and Joey should have ended up together. I dont think they would survive as a couple.

    I think they would have made a pretty good couple, because they're so similar, but I agree that all six of the friends coupling off would have been really cliched.

    I'm glad that they didn't end up together. They were way too good of friends for that to happen. They're much better off as friends.
