"Friends" is a TV show about a group of friends in the New York City borough of Manhattan, as they navigate their way through life and learn to grow up as they approach the third decade of their life.

They help each other to get through the obstacles that life naturally has for us. Monica is the excessively neat and organized "older sister" of the group, who works as a chef while yearning to find her ideal love.

Ross, Monica's older brother, is a paleontologist with a lifelong crush on Rachel. He is a laid-back man with low self esteem and a recent divorcee.

Rachel is the pretty, bubbly girl who spent most of her life as a spoiled rich princess. Now she must learn to face the real world.

Chandler is Ross' college buddy and the guy who will crack jokes at a moment's notice.

Phoebe is a lovable eccentric masseuse who easily could have fit in with Haight Ashbury in the 1960s. And Joey is the friend who has an inverse relationship between his good looks and his intelligence. He dreams of becoming an actor. These six individuals make up the cast of "Friends".
