Phoebe is one of the most jocular characters on FRIENDS and we have picked up a few strange and interesting things about her apartment you’d be keen on knowing!
Buddhist Praying Altar
Phoebe had a little Buddhist praying altar installed at her home. To be honest, the altar didn’t contain Lord Buddha’s statue. But in “The One Where Phoebe Runs,” we can witness a golden statue sitting within the middle of the shrine.
It appears to us that Phoebe may have practiced Buddhism or believed in a number of its tenants.
If we notice with utmost patience, a metallic windmill lays in Phoebe’s apartment, too. It’s silver and shiny but also appears heavy. It is amusing to think why Phoebe was so surprised to ascertain an AZ bookend when she had one.
In “The One With The Routine,” Phoebe and Rachel find Chandler’s gifts hidden and she thanks Chandler for the az.
Despite hating the mass-produced Pottery Barn stuff, Phoebe kept the antique telescope for her front room.
The Ornamental Birdcage, Huge
Rachel had purchased the decorative birdcage around the same time she purchased the apothecary table. She told Phoebe the cage was ancient and that early colonial bird merchants wont to bring their birds to plug therein.
While living at Phoebe’s, Rachel bought the apothecary table from Pottery Barn. Phoebe hated mass production, and Rachel lied to her, by telling her the table was an antique from a marketplace.
Glyniss is double the dimensions of Gladys; she had arms, protruding in nature and hands. She’s bald and to our surprise there are tiny children above her head.
Phoebe has a thing for exceptional art. She created the three-dimensional Gladys herself. Gladys may be a short-haired woman, with half her head tilting out of the frame and she is wearing blue.
One of Phoebe’s oldest things is that the golden Buddha statue at her place. A bit like the bulk in appearance, the figure may have changed places. But it has always been with her.
She is a staunch believer in reincarnation.
How is it that everybody knows who Einstein is and Phoebe doesn’t? For a more significant a part of her life, she thought Einstein was her grandpa. Phoebe was vulnerable at the start of the show. She felt the guy within the photo frame was her father, a famous arborist in Burma.
She was stupid enough to also think Einstein within the photo frame was her grandpa. Poor Phoebe may have discovered the reality about her father, but not such a lot about her grandpa. The photo stayed at her place for long.
The show runners did not get the apartment numbers in order. Monica, Ross, Joey, and Phoebe are all fall within the same category. In “The One With Joey’s New Brain,” Phoebe tells her address to a caller. She says that she lives at 5, Morton Street, apartment 14.
But if you look closely, her apartment numbered ’16’ in “The One With Ross And Monica’s Cousin” and in “The One In Massapequa.” What could be the reason behind this?
