We all wonder what Joey’s been up to these days. We all wonder if Ross ever got the respect he deserved from Phoebe for being a paleontologist, and if Monica and Chandler’s children inherited Chandler’s sardonic wit and Monica’s penchent for cleanliness. We wonder if Rachel something about fashion something. We wonder Gunther. We stuck with our Friends for roughly 30 years when they were on TV, and now it’s just like, you know: What? What are they doing? How are they? Hellooo? Guys? Where’d you go? I just need to check in with you one last time just to make sure you’re ok and then I’ll be totally fine, but right now I just need to know you’re ok, OK? Just please. I just need to see how you’re doing right now and then I’ll go away forever, I PROMISE!!!! But no, apparently that’s just TOO BAD FOR US, SAYS MATT LEBLANC (ALSO SAYS JENNIFER ANISTON BACK IN FEBRUARY)! From EW:

That show was about a finite period of time, before you got married and went off to start your life with a family. It was that magical time that everyone can relate to. To see what we’re all doing now… It’s almost like the book is better than the movie. I don’t want to see old Joey. I don’t want to see Chandler and Monica with their kids that are [raising a hand a few feet off the ground] this big now. I’d rather imagine that. Everyone’s going to have different vision of what those characters are like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people. A couple of people will go, ‘That’s what I thought!’ but for the most part it’s going to let people down. It’s better to let them just think.

Oh please, WHAT BOOK HAS EVER BEEN BETTER THAN THE MOVIE? If you’re going to ruin our dreams, at least don’t ruin them with stuff that doesn’t even make any sense! Talk about letting people down, Matt LeBlanc. Here we all are, Tweeting and Tumbling and SMSing about wanting a Friends reunion special pretty much nonstop, and then this guy comes in and just knocks the wind out of us. How dare he. How dare he tell us what will disappoint us. How we doin’, Matt LeBlac? Are you wondering how we doin’? Well, WE DOING NOT SO GOOD! Plz email m@lebnac.howudoin.frien.spec and tell him that you want a reunion special. Together we can make this happen! Also send him recliners! YES! WE! CAN! (Thanks for the tip, Tracey.)

  1. They’re just not there for us.

  2. I don’t know if it was ‘better,’ but Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Friends’ was definitely darker than the TV show.

  3. I am personally very interested in whether Joey still has that giant greyhound sculpture or not. Or if Adam Goldberg’s crazy roommate character ever came back and harassed/murdered anyone. These are the two things I am interested in.

  4. Everyone lives in $4000/month apartments in New York on $30K salaries for the several years before marriage/kids. We all relate.

  5. My aunt gave me her copy of The Notebook. I liked the movie, so I figured I’d love the book. Nope. Terrible. It was like some high schooler wrote it. The movie was so much better. Plus there was no Ryan Gosling in the book.

    • I watched The Notebook last year and really disliked it for many reasons. BUT I totally watched A Walk to Remember in theaters, and except for the fact that I was in high school at the time, I’m sure that these reactions were entirely inconsistent. My friends told me to read the book, and I did, and it was one of the worst pieces of garbage I’ve ever read, before, during, or after high school.

      • Did you dislike it for any ofthese reasons?

        • YES! I read that after I watched it and agreed with everything, and especially the part where Gabe said there is no reason to believe those two people had some kind of vast and enduring love. Also, the portrayal of Alzheimer’s was cruel and ridiculous. Like some poor idiot watched that movie and thought his wife/mother/grandma didn’t remember him because she didn’t love him enough, not because she had a degenerative brain disorder. Ugh.

  6. They’re not coming back? I thought we were on a break?

  7. Does anyone else think they secretly meet every week to re-enact old episodes but they won’t do a public reunion because the presence of cameras would “cheapen” the whole thing? Or does everyone else think that?

  8. Come on Friends cast, do it for The Rembrandts!

  9. “That show was about a finite period of time, before you got fired and your parents cut you off and your friendships started to fall apart. It was that magical time that almost no one can relate to. To see what we’re all doing now… It’s almost too depressing.”

  10. I like to think that Monica is living in Florida now and drinking a lot of wine and playing Penny Can all day.

  11. C’mon Guys…denying Friends rumors is the only way Matt LeBlanc still gets to do interviews!

  12. I SINCERELY HOPE you were joking about Monica and Chandler’s kids inheriting anything from them. Dem babies were adopted. #ignorance
