10 Life Lessons Phoebe Buffay From F.R.I.E.N.D.S Taught Us

Remember the quirky blonde girl from F.R.I.E.N.D.S.?  Phoebe Buffay danced to the beat of her own guitar and made all of us fall in love with her. Isn’t she just amazing? I love her!! Phoebe Buffay is a motivation and admirer for all of us, she has taught us so many life lessons. Her couldn’t-care-less attitude and with that unique sense of style of hers, she simply rocked.

Lisa Kudrow was one of my personal favorites cast  on F.R.I.E.N.D.S. She as Phoebe Buffay was never boring, and her musical offerings were unforgettable (Smelly Cat… Smelly cat… God! I can’t stop humming that song now). It was impossible to predict what Phoebe might do next, and, with a complicated back story, and strange family history, it felt as though the character had lived several lives before this one.

Here are 10 life lessons to be learned from everyone’s fav character, Phoebe Buffay …


  1. Always love yourself

Typical dialogue – “God, I love how sexy I am.”

Phoebe Buffay went with the flow. She never made plans. Like that time someone asked her – “Phoebe, do you have a plan?” and she replied saying, “I don’t even have a pla.” <3
