This quintessential friend group of the 90’s and early 2000’s set the standard for F.R.I.E.N.D.Ship goals. But Joey Tribbiani takes the cake for best of them all. Here’s why:
1. He’ll never judge you.
Whether you’re having a crisis about impending motherhood or you’re eating the best cheesecake in the world straight from the floor, Joey is always prepared to stand (or sit) by your side.
2. He relates easily with everyone.
Joey has seen and done it all thanks to his active social life and extensive acting career; if he hasn’t experienced it himself, chances are one of his characters have. Because of this, you can bet that he’ll give the best (read: goofiest) advice.
3. He will always have your back.
Whether you’re struggling to finish the Thanksgiving turkey or panicking about being a single mother, Joey will go above and beyond to make sure you know that you are never alone.
4. He’ll know you inside and out.
Joey chronically devotes every moment of his free time to his favorite people: his best friends. And all this time spent together means that he knows you well enough to mimic all of your lovable quirks and mannerisms.
5. He knows when to be the bigger person.
While Joey may not be the brightest member of the gang, he certainly has the biggest heart. While you’ll definitely end up having to explain how air quotes are used post-fight, you’ll never have to guess at his sincerity and remorse.
6. He’ll always be there to catch you.
Joey’s got you.
7. He’ll be the voice of reason you need.
Joey always brings a fresh perspective to the group. So when you need someone to put life into perspective, Joey will be your go-to man.
8. He can carry the team.
One of Joey’s many attributes is his relentless tenacity. So when you direly need an MVP to carry the team on his back, or even just an A1 pep talk, you know who to call.
9. He will always love you.
He may not look it, but ol’ Joey is a softie. You’ll never doubt his love for you because his every action will reiterate just how important you are.
