Remember Phoebe Buffay from F.R.I.E.N.D.S.? The quirky blonde girl who marched to the beat of her own drum and made all of us fall in love with her? Phoebe was an inspiration to all of us for her couldn’t-care-less attitude and unique sense of style. Here are 10 life lessons to be learnt from everyone’s fav 90’s character…
Case in point? This –
Remember “Smelly Cat”? She sang her heart out whenever she had the chance.
Like the time she bought Santa pants to wear as maternity pants because they were SO comfortable!
And to do that, you have to be a bit sharp sometimes. Like when she stood up to Monica’s strict schedule during her wedding!
The time she sang a song about grandmothers to little kids in the library – “But the truth is she died and someday, you will too!”
Typical dialogue – “God, I love how sexy I am.”
Phoebe went with the flow. She never made plans. Like that time someone asked her – “Phoebe, do you have a plan?” and she replied saying, “I don’t even have a pla.” <3
Even if that means you look like a mad person when you go for a run!
Always encouraging her friends. Even gave Ross ‘Geeky’ Gellar an ego boost with this sentence – “Where is my Ross Skywalker to come rescue me?”. Pure genius!
