Maids of honor for life
When we heard the news that Monica Geller (whoops, Courteney Cox) was Rachel Green’s (er, Jennifer Aniston’s) maid of honor at her super-secret wedding, we got a little choked up, OK?
In honor of their 21-year Friends-ship, here are ten things they taught us.
It’s ok for a true friend to crash...indefinitely
Question: Did Rachel ever pay rent?
You can be yourself around them
Awkward dance moves, chain belts and vertical bangs included.
You’re always on the same team
Except momentarily when you lose your joint apartment in a bet.
A real friend is your safety net
Or your emergency contact. Or your insurance-fraud conspirer. Or your voice of reason when insurance-fraud conspiring goes wrong.
They see your lowest point--and join you
Wedding dresses and beers it is.
They know how to protect your feelings
They trust your expertise
It’s all in the listening.
Real friends make each other laugh
Even when you’re right in the middle of stress-cleaning.
Real friends make each other cry
Like when you announce, “Now I have to live with a boyyy.”

'Cause they’re there for you. (Sorry, we had to.)
