Friends

Ross and Joey are talking at Central Perk. Gunther walks over with a take away cup and places it on the table.

Gunther:
(to Ross) Here is your warm milk!

(pause) Joey looks at Ross.

Ross:
(shyly) I am going to take it to my home and put the bourbon in there.

Joey nods.

Absolutely cracking material. How they come up with such unique quirks in personality traits of characters is difficult to understand. Too bad, I wasn't able to find this on YouTube.

Part of the reason Friends was successful was that the jokes were spontaneous. Train like, one after the other in stupendous timing. It is very difficult to replicate. I heard rumors that they were planning to make a movie out of the series. Other than the six sticking together, I think an essential ingredient to the success would be to capture this innate lightweight humor throughout the movie. Friends is a place where even drama is funny!
