Do you guys have to go to the new house right away, or do you have some time?,’ Rachel asked her friends through tears.
Monica replied, ‘We got some time.’
‘OK, shall we get some coffee?’ Rachel said as they all headed out the door of the apartment.
‘Sure …,’ Chandler said, adding snarkily: ‘… where?’
Friends ran for 10 years from 1994 to 2004 and continues to be successful in syndication on Max.
The sitcom is also celebrating 30 years since the premiere of the show and the two anniversaries come at an awkward time for the bonded members of the cast in the wake of the death of Perry at 54.
As a result, the stars of Friends are  trying to decide how to best celebrate the end of the iconic series, according to a source for Us Weekly.
‘The former costars are figuring out how to appropriately mark the upcoming 20th anniversary of the finale,’ the source said.
‘They will most certainly be commemorating it somehow,’ continued the source, noting that Aniston, Cox, Kudrow, LeBlanc and Schwimmer will likely post something on social media.

‘The prospect of having a reunion or a formal get-together without Matthew is bittersweet. There will be a huge void,’ said the source in the latest issue of Us Weekly.
‘[But] they know Matthew would’ve wanted them to carry on and celebrate the show. So that’s very much on their minds as they move forward.’
The pals chat often: ‘They talk via group chats as well as one-on-ones,’ said the source. ‘Jen and Courteney are in constant contact, and they’re both close with Lisa too.’
The 30th anniversary of the show’s 1994 debut will take place in September.
