QuoraED! This is when we pick up a trending or interesting thread from Quora and spin a story around it.
From “Joey doesn’t share food” to Monica’s “I know”, everybody knows what were it like in the territory of FRIENDS. An era where there were no smart phones, they made us laugh and cry, sometimes both at the same time.
Let us get out of our dull mind and imagine what would it like if Monica and gang had a WhatsApp group. I can say this with utmost proximity that Ross would scream “WE WERE ON A BREAK” thousand times and Joey would fill the group with photographs of Subway meals.
There’s this thread rotating around Quora where the use of WhatsApp among the characters of FRIENDS is being discussed. The original question says
How would the chat look like if there were a WhatsApp group with the characters in F.R.I.E.N.D.S?
Here are the creative, innovative, bone-chilling and extremely humorous answers given by FRIENDS fanatics:
- The One Where They Were On A Break
Fast forward 5 years into the future after the series finale.
[Monica created the group.]
Chandler: Hey! Mon, nice job creating the group.
Monica: I know!
Chandler: Really out of a job, are you?
Monica: -_- Fine! I’m unemployed, make fun of it all you want.
Ross: Hi! :(
Chandler: Oh man! Now what?
Ross: Rachel and I had a big fight.
Chandler: Oh boy! You people are not going to start the break thing again are you.
Rachel: Ross, please don’t whine about your problems on the group.
Ross: Hey! You want to fight again. This time, I should warn you. I’ve done a lot of karattey.
Monica: At least don’t spell it the same annoying way you pronounce it.
Rachel: Hahaha! Once you said you had Unagi, we all saw how that turned out to be.
Phoebe: Oh! Hahahahahaha, ya I remember that one. Hahahahahah, omg I can’t stop laughing.
Joey: How you doin’? ;)
Phoebe: Oh! Joey! Stop. I’m married now. ^_^
Joey: Sorry! Wrong chat!
(Silence for some time)
Ross: I’m fine by the way!
Rachel: Ross, please stop!
Monica: Aaargh! What are you guys fighting about anyway?
Rachel: It was Ross’s turn to bring Emma home from school and guess what? He forgot. What if something terrible would have happened to Emma?
Ross: No, it wasn’t my turn. It was yours. I even showed you the time table I made.
Phoebe: Of course, the time table!
Rachel: Yes it was! I accept that. But I had told you yesterday that I had an extremely tiring week at work and I really wanted a break, so I asked you to pick up Emma as a favor.
Ross: See, every time you wanted a break, our relationship got screwed up. It’s all your fault.
Joey: Oh boy! Here we go again..
Chandler: Rachel you should probably cancel the break dance classes you had registered for…. eh? :D
Chandler: Okay, I’ll be leaving the group now.
Phoebe: Okay! You guys, you have a 2nd child on the way, a boy probably. So, can you please just stop fighting. If not for yourselves, at least stop for Phoebo!
Rachel: Yeah! I guess you’re right.
Ross: Okay Pheebs! And btw, we are not going to name our son Phoebo. I thought we went over this.
Phoebe: Yeah! We’ll see about that.
Chandler: Okay! So now that your fight is over, we can finally focus on the smaller issues like poverty and unemployment.
(Silence for 10 minutes)
Chandler: Seriously?! Come on you people!
Joey: Know when to shut up man!
Chandler: Okay! Now I am actually leaving the group.
(Chandler left the conversation)
Joey: He’ll be back!
Rachel: And btw Ross, the break thing that you mentioned earlier. It was entirely your fault the 1st time.
Ross: It was not.
Rachel: Yes it was!
Ross: No it wasn’t. WE WERE ON A BREAK!

- The One Where Janice Joins In
Monica: “ Guys, Thanksgiving Dinner, next Thursday. ”
Ross: “ Mashed potatoes with lumps ? ”
Monica: “ Fine. ”
Joey: “ Tater tots ? ”
Monica: “ Ok. ”
Phoebe: “ Whipped potatoes with peas and onions ? ”
Monica: “ You know what ? My house. My menu. My food. My rules. Get it ? ”
Joey: “ Damn it, man , control your wife. ”
Chandler: “ I am under control. Oh ! You meant Monica as the wife. I get it. I’ll try. ”
Rachel: “ Hey guys, don’t worry. I’ll cook what you want. ”
Ross: “ Monica’s house. Monica’s food. Monica’s menu. Monica’s rules. We agree. ”
Rachel: “ Come on guys, I can cook well. ”

Chandler: “ Of our lives. ”
Joey: “ Sorry, I missed the conversation. I just saw that there was some cream left on the wrapper. ”
Phoebe: “ It’s ok, Joe. We understand. You can easily check out the messages. ”
Joey: “ No. I can’t. I cannot go back into the past, you know. ”
Chandler: “ Yes. That’s true. But that is the easier option. You can try the harder way of scrolling to check the above messages. ”
Joey: “ Eh ! What do you know. It’s not that difficult. Thanks man. ”
Monica: “ Rachel, You still here ? ”
Rachel: “ Oh yes. There was this T.V. commercial about 50% discount at Gucci’s on Tuesday. We have to go there Ross. Please. Please. ”

Ross: “ Fine. ”
Phoebe: “ Oo. Oo. Oo. I know what new we can do this Thanksgiving. ”
Chandler: “ Okay people. This sure will be interesting. What “new” can we do Phoebs ?”
Phoebe: “ We can all cook vegetables for the cows and turkeys and feed them as a sort of “ thank you ” for providing food for us all. Thanksgiving right ? ”
5 minutes of silence ensues.
Ross: “ Anyway, Mon are there going to be any additional guests ? ”
Monica: “ Umm….Just one. ”
Joey: “ Who ? ”
“ OH MY GOD ”
Chandler: “ Janice, Monica ? Janice ? ”
Janice: “ Come on bing-a-ling. Don’t tell me that you did not miss me…ahenhenhenehen. ”
Rachel: “ Your messages are annoying as well ? My goodness. ”
Monica left the conversation.
Joey left the conversation.
Ross left the conversation.
Rachel left the conversation.
Chandler: “ Phoebe, please stay. ”
Phoebe: “ Oh, I can’t. Because I don’t want to. ”
Phoebe left the conversation.
Janice: “ It’s just you and me Chandler. ahenhenhenehen. ”
Chandler: “ Oh! come on. Come on. It’s no more F.R.I.E.N.D.S from now on. No more F.R.I.E.N.D.S. It’s E.N.E.M.I.E.S. ”
- The One Where Joey Is Can’t Stop Staring
So, The situation is this: Chandler and Phoebe are stuck at work. Ross is busy in his Dinosaur stuff :D Monica is decorating their new house.(Why the hell wouldn’t she?) Rachel and Joey are in Central Perk.
Rachel: Guys, Wanna go for a movie?
Joey: I can’t. I’m working.
Rachel: You’re sitting right in front of me, looking for a hot girl.
Joey: What did I tell you?
Chandler:Hello, Children. Well, apparently my boss has been up my ass for the last week. Why must everyone like my buttocks? Joey, What about your audition man?
Joey: Damn it! *leaves*

*Meanwhile Gunther checking out Rachel*
Chandler: Joey, Stop talking to a woman and go to your audition goddamn it.
Joey: How did you? Leaving. *runs back to Central Perk, took his last piece of scone and leaves*
- The One With The Status
Chat is a something that is based on any scenario or topic but I think I can guess what will be the whats-app status for all.
Chandler: “Hi there! Whatsapp is using me”.
Ross: “ Hhhhhiiiiiieeeeeee” (In sad voice.) or “On Divorce Marathon.” or “I love Paleontology” or “We were on a BREAK.” or “Unagi.” or “Pivot”.
Joey: “Joey Doesn’t Share food.” or “Hungry + Angry = Hangry.” or “How you doin?”
Monica: “On cleaning spree.” or “Jam <cooking> sessions.”
Phoebe: “I wish I could care about all but I don’t want to.” or “In search of smelly cat.”
Rachel: “No uterus no opinion.”
We all hoped FRIENDS never ends, and the question answers remind us that it never did. It’s still alive in our hearts and souls and mobiles and laptops.
Having witnessed the joyful and sarcastic conversations, you can now die in peace. You must have felt nostalgic while reading this. So what are you waiting for? Turn you laptop on and start a FRIENDS marathon. Could it BE more hilarious?
