FRIENDS is one show that we can’t get enough of. The 10 season-long sitcom chronicles lives of Monica, Chandler, Joey, Phoebe, Ross and Rachel. And they turned out to be ‘the gang’ fans cherished ever since.
The audience’s relationship with the characters in time turned so strong that when HBO Max was launched show was brought back with a planned reunion. But this was a pre Coronavirus world. The Central Perk would not have been so vibrant if Friends had an episode dedicated to the pandemic. While actual Friends reunion is delayed due to the pandemic.
Now we are busy binge-watching the show over and over again on HBO Max to get rid of the lockdown blues. We couldn’t resist but imagine how each of the characters would have reacted to the outbreak of this pandemic.
Yes, that is Monica Geller, you guys! She would probably be busy collecting toilet paper for the period of the entire lockdown and sanitize each and everything over and over again. That includes the sanitizer, the spray, the mask, the gloves and the cleaning equipment for sanitizing as well!
Ross would stay pretty much busy preaching the science behind the pandemic even though the other Friends would constantly ignore his boring talk. Also, Ross, ‘the professor,’ would be trying his best to make his online classes interactive and knowledgeable, making sure no student sleeps during the lecture.
Life couldn’t have been better for Joey despite the fact that Monica makes him sanitize his hands before each meal! Well, showering every day is one problem but he couldn’t have complaint as he is surrounded by video games and a full stock of food and Monica’s stock of toilet paper.
It is 2020, you guys! Rachel would have utilized this time to build a platform on social media to showcase her fashion skills. She would have been busy creating content for her fashion blog for quarantine looks while Ross is busy pursuing her out of loneliness.
The world is in pain and Phoebe could not have stopped herself from helping the poor, writing songs of faith and encouraging people to pray for the universe. While the spa business has gone for a toss, Phoebe is planning to turn into a philosopher who spreads her messages through her music. Her YouTube channel is up and running! The first subscriber is her GrandMa.

Now that Chandler is working from home, the Friends finally understand his job profile. However, the constant complaining and cribbing are getting too much for them and his boss just wouldn’t stop calling whenever he skipped his meeting because of playing video games with Joey.
We wonder how great it would have been to see our dear Friends reacting to coronavirus but then the streets of New York would have definitely gone dull without them, isn’t it?
How do you think Friends characters would have reacted to the Coronavirus lockdown?
