The Friends Cast Are Never Ever Ever, Getting Back Together. Like, Ever
"We are never, ever, ever, ever getting back together
We are never, ever, ever, ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together"....
This is the refrain poor old Marta Kauffman, genius Friends creator and all-round hero, goes to bed singing every night. And she's just had to remind us. AGAIN.
Asked by media outlets, friends and fans every day of the week since the show's end in 2004, the TV legend is getting a *little* tired of having to repeat herself. And yet, people are still asking.
In an interview with Vanity Fair this week, Kauffman gave a statement so similar to the one she came out with last time she was prodded about a possible reunion, we think she might be a robot. Might explain how she came up with all those mega awesome ideas for The Best Show On Earth, at least:
"They nag me all the time about it, and my answer is that Friends was a show about that time in your life when your friends are your family, and in a weird way, this isn’t that different.
Once you start having family of your own it changes, and the show was over. A show has a lifespan, I believe. It has a lifespan like anything else, and there’s no reason to continue doing it just because people miss the characters.
Watch the old ones; there is no way we could win that. And there’s no way it would be satisfying and it’ll never happen. We’ll never do it."
She's starting to sound a bit familiar...
She previously told Deadline:
“Friends is about that time in your life when your friends are your family,” she told EW.
“Once you start having a family, that changes. And you have new groups. It’s not that you don’t love those people anymore, but it changes. But to put them back together now when it’s no longer that time of their lives, there’s no reason for the show. That’s all the show was about—that time and those relationships.”
CRY FACE EMOJI. ALSO NOT VERY SURPRISED FACE EMOJI. BUT STILL, CRY FACE EMOJI.
If only the gang could pull together for some of of special reunion interview where they hang out for a night talking about how cool it was to be involved with the show. Oh wait.
Damn you, Matthew Perry (joking, love you loads).
