Friends may seem like a silly show about sexy twenty-somethings, and that's because it is. beneath it's cheery exterior lies a dark secret that nobody ever noticed: Each one of the show's characters is the embodiment of one of the 7 Deadly Sins! Don't believe me? Just have a look at this!
Rachel came into the group as the spoiled rich girl, and while she eventually becomes self-sufficient, she never shakes the rampant materialism that defines her character. At one point, Ross suggests that she stay in the sham marriage solely for the wedding presents and she genuinely considers it. Greedy much?
Ross's two most defining character traits are the fact that he cheated on Rachel and the fact that he's constantly getting married and divorced, both of which point to a man who is driven by his irrational sexual urges.
It may not seem like it but Pheobe actually has quite the temper. The rest of the friends seem to genuinely fear her, which they probably should. I mean, she did used to mug people, and even stabbed a cop once.
Joey eats. That's what Joey does. Enough said.
Monica is driven to be perfect by the belief that she is better at everything then everyone else. The idea that she is anything less that perfect is foreign to her. It should also be noted that just as pride is said to be the source of the other 6 deadly sins, Monica is the central friend, that connects everyone else in the group.
Chandler made a lot of money, but it was in a job he hates. It was supposed to be a temporary after college, but he let inertia get the better of him and, it took him like 8 seasons to finally get off his ass and change careers. Could he be any lazier?
