  • The beginning of 10 years of magnificent entertainment.

    We are introduced to six very different, but all very lovable characters. Each with his or her own weaknesses and strengths and each with his or her own lovable attributes. We are introduced to Monica Geller, sister of Ross Geller, who's best friend is Chandler Bing, who's roommate is Joey Tribiana and who's friend, Phoebe Buffet. Wait, that's only five. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the spoiled little girl who is introduced a little later to everyone else. Her name is Rachel Green and she my friends, has never worked a day in her life. No it is up to the gang to teacher her how to live a normal life and they also teach her the way to live. Amazing episode, the beginning of it all!
