Friends fans maybe find it hard to believe, but it’s been a decade since the Central Perk crew did their last fountain dance.
On May 6, 2004, the Friends finale (“The Last One”) aired, leaving viewers with a final look at Monica’s apartment as the gang departed to grab one more cup of coffee. While many hope to see Chandler Bing and Co. together once more, Courteney Cox recently shot down reunion rumors on The Late Show with David Letterman, saying it’s hard enough to get the group together for dinner.
Luckily, the power of Photoshop can bring people together. In honor of Friends’ decade-old finale, we reunited the show’s actors with their younger selves, so they can reminisce about the glory days of smelly cats and first kisses.
