The HBO special episode was originally scheduled to shoot in March and aired in May, but the pandemic delayed the entire process.

The cast- David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, and Matt LeBlanc are eager to film it.

On ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,’ David told,” I’m excited to walk on that stage again and see everyone and experience what it’s like to be on those sets still with the cast.”

In an interview, Lisa Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay on the show, shared her excitement. “We want people to know: it’s not a scripted episode. It’s just us, reminiscing. Talking how we haven’t been in the same room for anyone to see us in 20 years or more now,” she said.

Even though the show ended in 2004, it is still enjoyed by millions all over the world on streaming services or TV re-runs. Friends lovers have multiplied over the years, and there is no stopping. Throughout its run and even now, Friends has received much love and appreciation.

HBO decided to gather the cast once again and shoot the Friends Reunion special episode, which is keenly awaited by its fans. The announcement was made in February.

It’s impossible to go a day without referring the Friends phrases. ‘How you doing?’ ‘Unagi,’ ‘I know,’ and heaps of heaps of other expressions.

But there is one highly debated phrase- ‘We were on a break.’ What’s the story behind it? And why is Ross, aka David Schwimmer still explaining it?

We were on a Break!

‘We were on a break’ is a classic recurring line by Ross Geller. (Spoiler Ahead!)

Ross and Rachel are the endgames of the show. Their relationship is one of the central plotlines of Friends. You will see their on-off romance throughout ten seasons.

The story behind the catchphrase goes like this. In one of the episodes, there was an argument between Rachel and Ross. Rachel thought it’s better to take a ‘break.’ Sad Ross drank all night. He called Rachel to reconsider their relationship, and mistakenly thought Rachel was seeing her co-worker. And the next morning, he woke up beside a girl. It was a one-night-stand.
