Which F.R.I.E.N.D.S character do you like? Mine is Phoebe Buffay.

Smelly cat, smelly cat
What are they feeding you?
Smelly cat, smelly cat
It’s not your fault

That’s a verse of Smelly Cat, Phoebe Buffay’s most popular song. Who the hell is this Phoebe Buffay? Is she one of the Clinton’s secret campaign manager, or some chicks who work at strip bar, or a girl you barely met at the mall? No. none of the option is true. Haha, there’s laughing inside my head when I wrote Clinton’s secret campaign manager. Duh, it’s so lame.

Phoebe Buffay is one of the main characters in FRIENDS series. Weird, flaky, dumb but love her friends very much. I really like her. She has a very weird family background and very weird stuff either. Her real mom, Phoebe Abbot was stupidly knocked-up by Frank Buffay and gave up Phoebe and Ursula (Phoebe’s Identical twin sister) to Lily, her best friends. Lily then married to Frank Buffay. But the marriage didn’t work when Frank leave Lily and her daughters. After frank leave them, Lily married again with some guy, but turns out that guy was sent to prison. Lily try really hard to raise the kids when the two of them not getting along. Ursula is mean to Phoebe in every way. When the twin was 14, Lily killed herself and leaved the twins in poor kind of life. Phoebe then settled living in the street of New York. She lived in the box and mugged people for living. She then found her life after applying aromatherapy and work as masseuse. After many years of rough struggle in life, she read about Monica Geller’s ads to looks for a roommate. She then settled living with Monica for a few years before moving out and lived with her grandma.

Throughout the plot, she always pictured as a flaky, weird woman who wants to meet her whole set of family. Throughout the plot also, she finally meet with Phoebe Abbot, her birth mom, which she didn’t know before. She thinks Lily is her real mom, as her parents never tell her anything about it. Then she met with her half brother, Frank Jr. also a weird guy. She gave birth to her brother’s triplet, when Frank Jr. and Alice (his spouse) can’t conceive child through traditional method. Then both of them ask Phoebe a favor if she can carry their child as surrogate mother. Phoebe agrees as this is the best gift she probably could give to someone. In real life Lisa Kudrow is actually pregnant. After 8 seasons of on-off-on-off relationship with a ton of men, she finally ends up with Mike Hannigan, which I think is shorter than Phoebe. They married at 10th seasons on the street outside Central Perk. Unfortunately none of her family makes it to the wedding and Chandler walks her to the aisle.

Why I like Phoebe very much. Because she is the brilliances of the show as Monica is the glue to the entire gang, she is the one who creates minor sub plot but leave a deep effect to the gang. She always is in the middle of the fight to stop it. When Monica and Rachel fight over who should go out with Jean Claude Van-Damme, when Ross and Rachel fight where they wanna go to Rachel’s sister’s cabin for skiing, also when Rachel wanna moves out from Monica’s.

One thing that impressed me a lot about her is her ton of principle even though she sometimes fails to stick to it. The most notable one is she is vegan. She didn’t eat meat, but sometimes she was seen to eat one in the show. For example in The One With Dozen Lasagnas, she was seen eating a non-veggie lasagna with Monica. At the beginning of the show, clearly stated there Aunt Sylvia doesn’t want the lasagna because it is non-veggie lasagna. Then when she was pregnant, she have craving for meat and try to fool the fetus by eating soy burger. Then she decided to eat meat when Joey in turn be a vegan. Talking about vegan, I remember these two songs about vegan and eating meat. Both wrote by Phoebe.

New York City has no power,
And the milk is getting sour,
But for me it is not scary,
Cause I stay away from dairy,

All cows in the meadow goes moo,
All cows in the meadow goes moo,
And farmer knocks them in the head,
That’s how we get hamburgers,
Noooooooowwwww chicken…

She also has strong feeling for animals, and loves all kind of animals. I remember this line when the gangs wanna have a barbeque for Rachel’s birthday and Monica asks Phoebe to take out the turkey and steak out from the freezer. Then she said, “I remember how cute this turkey and cow was”. She is a positive thinker. She tries her real hard to be positive all the time.

I think that’s for now. Tulis panjang2 pun nanti korang jemu nak bace lak. Hahahaha… if you are hardcore fan of FRIENDS series also, do leave comment and state which FRIENDS’ character do you like most.. hahaha..have a good day…
