Friends is a sitcom about six friends in New York as they navigate through life. Monica Gellar (Courtney Cox Arquette) is the excessively neat and organized "older sister" of the group, who works as a chef while yearning to find her ideal love. Ross Gellar (David Schwimmer), 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 Green (Jennifer Aniston) 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 Bing (Matthew Perry) is Ross' college buddy and the guy who will crack jokes at a moment's notice. Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) is a lovable eccentric masseuse. And Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) is the friend who has an inverse relationship between his good looks and his intelligence. He dreams of becoming an actor. During the show's run, the cast all achieved household name celebrity status, and all pursued careers in the movies, with varied success. Friends officially ended its phenomenal 10-year run in May 2004.
