11 Times Phoebe Stole the Show on Friends
Phoebe Buffay charmed audiences on every episode of Friends with her quirky style, her eccentric yet totally genuine personality, her signature singing, and her downright all-around lovable-ness. Played by the brilliant Lisa Kudrow, more often than not, Phoebe had the ability to take the spotlight away from the other five actors with her impeccable comedic timing and hilariously on-point delivery. Here are 11 times Phoebe stole the show on Friends.
11. “EeeeeEEEEEeeeeee!” Phoebe Sings Along With Ross’s Bagpipes
When Ross decides he’s going to pay tribute to his little sister and best friend when Monica and Chandler tie the knot, the pair is less than enthused about the idea when they find out he wants to play the bagpipes (which, really, he can’t play in any way that actually sounds like music). They may not let Ross perform at the wedding, but he still gets to show off his bagpipe skills (or lack thereof) to his friends and Phoebe is more than happy to sing along. “Celebrate Good Times” turns into a screech-fest that is totally awful auditory-wise and absolutely adorably Phoebe-ish. As can be expected, there were many times the actors themselves couldn’t keep straight faces, which is the case with Jennifer Aniston who couldn’t stop laughing and her reaction was kept in.
10. Ms. Pac-Man Swear-Fest
When Monica and Chandler score a sweet retro Ms. Pac-Man arcade game for their apartment, it causes excitement among the friends who can’t wait to start playing. Chandler is just as mature as always when he fills the top score spots with initials that spell out naughty things. Ross is less than pleased since little Ben is expected soon so Aunt Phoebe takes over to win her way to replacing each dirty item with her own initials. Just when she’s about to win the last spot, she loses and lets loose a wild rant of swear words and curses not suited for young ears. Of course this is the moment that Ross walks in with Ben and the laughs are almost too much to take.
