other words for friend

Now, let’s roll the further list!

How You Doin?

Probably the most prominent line from Friends, this is Joey’s notorious pick-up line. Hey, how you doin’?

A pick-up line is something one says to flirt. More Like this “ Jack: Did it hurt ? Sara: What ? Jack: When you fell from heaven, you angel !

Central Perk:

This is the name of the coffee shop that appears in practically every episode. What you probably didn’t know is that it is actually a joke, a play on words. You’ve heard of the Central Park in New York City, right?


Perk relates to coffee. First, it is short for the word percolate.

Percolate means to brew coffee by forcing hot water through the ground particles of

coffee beans. We can also call the machine that makes this type of coffee a coffee percolator.

Furthermore, we use “perk” as a phrasal verb meaning to become or make more lively or cheerful. Finally, we use it to describe the feeling that we get from drinking coffee.

Since Friends, this expression has become a popular one for a certain type of relationship.

This is how Chandler and Joey describe Ross’ relationship with Rachel at the beginning of Friends.

Friend Zone:

You can use this to describe if you have a crush on someone (are romantically interested in that person), but that person only considers you a friend.

The idea is that if you’ve recently become friends with someone you like, and you wait too long in the “friend zone”, it becomes harder and harder for that person to change their perception of you and be attracted to you.

Since Friends, this expression has become a popular one for a certain type of relationship. This is how Chandler and Joey describe Ross’ relationship with Rachel at the beginning of Friends.

It’s never gonna happen. Why not?

Because you waited too long to make your move, and now you’re in the friend zone.

No, no, no… I’m not in the zone. No, Ross, you’re mayor of the zone.

Check out how it is defined in this movie, Just Friends. What about Sheila, you making any headway?

Well, we’ll see… I’m taking her to lunch today, so– Oh, wow, wow. Don’t- don’t do that.

Okay? Don’t do lunch. Why? That’s like the express lane to the friend zone.

What the hell is the friend zone? See, when a girl decides that you’re her friend, you’re no longer a dating option, you become a complete non-sexual entity in her eyes, like a brother…

or a lamp. I don’t want to be a lamp.

Yeah. Well, then don’t be her friend, okay?


Pivot means to turn on a point or shaft. This word choice is quite funny when Ross could have used a more common word like rotate or turn.


He is her lobster.

Phoebe uses this to describe the inevitable reason why Ross and Rachel have to be together. Hang in there, it’s going to happen. Okay, now, how do you know that?

Because she’s your lobster. Oh, she’s going somewhere.

Come on, you guys, it’s a known fact that lobsters fall in love and mate for life.

You know what, you can actually see old lobsters couples walking around their tank, you know,

holding claws, like…

A lobster is a type of shellfish.

In the United States, it is expensive and associated with fine dining. There is a popular type of restaurant that will have a tank of lobsters, and actually let you choose the one you want to eat.

Phoebe says many crazy things, and the image that she portrays here is ridiculous,

but quite funny.

What we would more commonly say in English is, “he’s her soul mate.”

See? He’s her lobster.

This is another line that has been immortalized on many coffee cups, T-shirts, etc.

Use this with Friends fans, and they are sure to laugh!

I wish I could, But I don’t want to:

This is another fantastic line from Phoebe. The expression I wish I could, but… is common when we want to politely excuse ourselves from something in English.

Phoebe’s line is funny, because she uses this polite expression to excuse herself, but then her excuse is simply that she does not want to, which means that she could do what is being asked, making it completely contradictory. Americans still use this nowadays when someone asks a favor, but we don’t want to do it.

I am Breezy:

It was breezy. This is from season 3, episode 2 when Monica is trying to forget about her ex-boyfriend, Richard, who she recently broke up with.

This expression is not very common, however, any Friends fan will recognize it instantly!

It means that you are relaxed, not serious.

Hi, it’s Monica.

I’m just checking in because I got this message from you and I didn’t know if it was old or new or what, so… I’m just checking. So, let me know… or no, whatever.

I’m breezy. Hey, you can’t say you’re breezy.
