Sometimes we don’t realise how lucky we are. To have the best show on the Earth, Friends written in our mother tongue means that we get to enjoy the show without losing meaning in translation (how do you say "Princess Consuela Bananahammock" in Japanese?). If you haven’t grown up in an English speaking country, then this could mean subtitles, or worse… dubbing.
Now, we can’t speak for the comedy timing of the Japanese actor (Hiroaki Hirata, FYI), but this dubbing of “The One with the Birth Mother” is incredible.

For all of you who don’t speak Japanese or have a line-by-line knowledge of Friends (shame on you), this is the *iconic* scene where Joey explains to Phoebe that his date kept stealing his food.
And obviously, "Joey doesn't share food!"
At least now we know it's the same in Japanese as it is in English.
