9780385483292: Friends: The Official Companion Book

Do you know who Holden McGroin is? Do you ever find things "twirly"? Do you worry about the size of the WENUS? Do you yearn to be an Ugly Naked Guy? Do you know exactly why gum would be perfection?  

Don't worry--Friends: The Official Companion is there for you.  Here at last is the only authorized guide to the television comedy that has taken America by storm, as millions of viewers have enjoyed the ongoing quests of Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler, and Ross to fall in love, find meaningful jobs, control their monkeys--in other words, get lives.  

Friends: The Official Companion is chock-full of features available nowhere else--like "Friends Dearest," a shocking introductory tell-all by erstwhile friend Marcel the Monkey, explaining the evolution of the Friends species; "Friendsography," a detailed episode-by-episode guide to the first season; "Friendly Words," a collection of unforgettably hilarious lines from the show; "A Little Friendly Competition: The Totally Twirly Quiz"; interviews with the cast; and more than 100 photos in black-and-white and color, many of them never before seen.  

So this is it--The One with Everything--an indispensable volume for Friends fanatics and casual viewers alike.

Review:

For a while they couldn't be escaped: every magazine plastered them on the cover; every talk show touted them; every trendy young woman was wearing the haircut. The Friends phenomenon seemed unavoidable. Now that the frenzy has died down, perhaps you're feeling a slight void in your life. Chandler, Ross, Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, and Joey aren't everywhere you turn. Happily, the show has entered syndication, meaning you'll be able to relive your favorite moments: the birth of Ross's son, Marcel the monkey humping everything in sight, the romance of Paolo and Rachel. But if that's not enough for you--and how could it be for the true devotee?--you'll need to get your hands on Friends: The Official Companion Book. With trivia, fun facts, plot summaries of the entire first season, snippets of dialogue, glam shots of the cast, and even a quiz (Do you know what WEENUS stands for?) and an "Uncensored Tail-All" by Marcel, the books contains all you need to become the ultimate expert on this popular TV show. A true find for the committed Friendsphile. --Jenny Brown
