Legend has it that “friends are the family you choose”. For most, the adage sits quite right, but for the friends in Friends, it encompasses a lifestyle maxim. Having dedicated a decade of their lives to comfort the days of the world with humorous anecdotes with their day-to-day grind, Friends paved the way to find a home away from home. Therefore, on Jennifer Aniston touching her 55th, Courteney Cox made sure that the world finds that piece of home. 

Years later, as the Friends bff continue to put a marker every year with another addition to their time-honored bond, this time, Cox managed to highlight the same with a special Chandler-Rachel flashback.

Even two decades after its final curtain call, when the friends in Friends cross paths with each other, they easily take one back to the ’90s evenings- a recliner chair, some munchies, a leg warmer, and the cheeky quips from Friends. And for Aniston’s birthday, Cox seized the opportunity to pen down a heartfelt note to her longtime on and off-screen bestie with a special Chandler-Rachel scene from The One Where Heckles Dies from season 2.

Even though the world is used to Cox’s social dumps, the birthday one was special as she chose the scene where Rachel was complaining to Chandler about Monica breaking her “sea-shell lamp”. She marked it as her “favorite” clip, sayingnobody else in the world could make this line sound so cute”. The rest two slides made her reasoning just as much clearer since the close-up snaps were nothing but a testament to their unfettered alliance.
