‘We Were on a BREAK!’ 9 Signs You’re the Ross Geller of Your Friend Group

It’s been 25 years since the first episode of Friends aired on NBC. Yes, 25! Feeling old yet? The hit show debuted on September 22, 1994, and continues to be one of the most beloved shows on television. Don’t @ me. In honor of the special anniversary, we rounded up our favorite quotes from Ross Geller — played by David Schwimmer — because he’s clearly the best character. Don’t @ me again.

The actor, 52, has been in quite a few movies and TV shows, but fans know him most from this beloved role. Over the years, the paleontologist has made us laugh, cringe and everything in between.

Since then, however, he’s stepped away from the spotlight for a quieter life with British artist Zoe Buckman. They tied the knot in 2010 and welcomed a daughter, Chloe, in 2011. In fact, David even turned down Will Smith‘s role in Men in Black because he admitted fame “messed” with his “relationship to other people.”

“As an actor, the way I was trained, my job was to observe life and to observe other people, so I used to walk around with my head up, really engaged and watching people,” he told TODAY in 2016. “The effect of celebrity was the absolute opposite: It made me want to hide under a baseball cap and not be seen.”

“And I realized after a while that I was no longer watching people; I was trying to hide,” he continued. “So I was trying to figure out: How do I be an actor in this new world, in this new situation? How do I do my job? That was tricky.”

Luckily, David’s character lives on thanks to Netflix. And, as any true Friends fan knows, every group has a Ross — so, is it you? Keep scrolling to see if your personality matches up with Ross’!
