  • The relationship amongst siblings

Ross Geller and Monica Geller are biological siblings who share a beautiful bond. They make sure of always having each other’s back and sharing secrets without judging each other. They are also together in their silly moves, even if it takes it to be dancing stupidly on a public platform. That is a sort of relation each one aspires to have with their siblings. Even Phoebe and Frank Jr., who meet very late in their lives, are able to develop a bond. Which was so strong that Phoebe takes the huge step of acting as a surrogate for carrying her brother’s children.

  • The friends in the series are somewhat relatable to the friends one has in real life

While one thinks of the characters in the sitcom, they are many times able to relate it to acquaintances in their own lives. Almost every group of friends has a sarcastic one like Chandler, a weird one like Phoebe, a control-freak like Monica. Also a carefree one like Rachel, a geek like Ross and one who never has the slightest ideas of anything like Joey. It is hence very easy to relate to them and enjoy their connect.
