I laugh so much (and often out loud) whenever I watch Friends. Seriously, it doesn’t matter how many times I’ve watched an episode from the series but I’d still laugh at the same funny moments over and over again. And there are sweet scenes in the show that’d make my eyes well up at times.
The most recent episode that made me go “awwwwww” and tear up like a baby was when Phoebe and Mike are saying their vows to each other in The One With Phoebe’s Wedding (season 10, episode 13).
Phoebe: “When I was growing up, I didn’t have a normal mom and dad or a regular family like everybody else, and I always knew that something was missing. But now that I’m standing here today, I know that I have everything I’m ever gonna need … You are my family.”
[She puts the ring on Mike’s finger.]
Mike: “Phoebe, you’re so beautiful. You’re so kind, you’re so generous. You’re so wonderfully weird. Every day with you is an adventure, and I can’t believe how lucky I am, and I can’t wait to share my life with you forever.”
[He puts the ring on Phoebe’s finger.]
Phoebe: “Oh wait, oh I forgot … and uhm … I love you … and you have nice eyes.”
Mike: “I love you too.”
And the happy couple live happily ever after. Sometimes the story that a movie or TV show depicts is so inspiring and heartwarming that it fills me with hope and happiness for the future. I can’t wait for my turn to find my soulmate who’d be perfect for me in almost every way and we’d laugh every day because we know how lucky we are to have found each other.
