Six friends frequently gather at one another's apartments and share sofa space at Greenwich Village's Central Perk coffeehouse in New York City.
Monica Geller Bing is a chef with an obsession for neatness and order in her life. She is married to Chandler Bing, a dry wit who is never at a loss for words.
Across the hall are Chandler's former longtime roommate, Joey Tribbiani, a womanizing actor currently on the soap opera "Days of Our Lives," and Rachel Green, Monica's best friend from high school.
Across the alley from Monica and Chandler lives Monica's hapless brother Ross Geller, a paleontology professor who has been divorced three times, including once from Rachel.
Although Rachel is no longer romantically involved with Ross, they share the responsibility of raising their newborn daughter, Emma.
Rounding out the circle of friends is Monica's ex-roommate, Phoebe Buffay, an offbeat, eternally optimistic folk singer and massage therapist.
