‘Coz of our meddling!

This word immediately reminds me of Monica Geller and her hair(!), which of course due to the humidity was all springy and frizzy.

This is what I was talking about

There is a general social rule that one must not meddle in other people’s affairs. Now the word ‘affairs’ has multiple meanings and contexts attached to it. It could mean business, things, life, love life, extramarital relationships, infidelity secrets and so on and so forth.


Rarely do we keep up with this unwritten social rule. Any problem in relationships, we run to our friends, who in all probability would be that lone, single soul, who would not have had any first-hand experience being in a relationship. We also seek advice and tips from innumerable people around us in most of our choices. If it ends up well, then we are proud of having asked around for advice, otherwise, God forbid, it is just regret that remains.

In this episode, Phoebe and Mike manage to get back together for eternity, despite having all the mind-blocks, miscommunication and complications that one can only imagine. It was all due to the ‘meddling’ of Mr and Mrs.Bing in the events. Also what would remind the viewers about this episode would be her hair, which had given a super-tough competition to that of Albert Einstein.

I have always loved Monica Geller, though. A well-rounded figure, who isn’t ashamed to seek love and what one would call ‘the conventional’ life. A mother-hen, a control freak, a passionate chef and a loving wife. She seemed complete in a lot more aspects than others in the show.

Spanning over ten seasons with over 150 episodes, the show Friends has managed to carve a niche for itself. I do hear the frequent jibes that Seinfeld was a better show and how Friends was just a mellowed down, crass version of it, but Hey! Gimme some time until I watch Seinfeld and form an opinion of my own. Until then, do not meddle with my choice of TV shows.
