This is a game. This is only a game. If using alcoholic beverages, do not drive. Do not operate heavy machinery. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

Gather Friends (if applicable) around TV set. Place drinks, alcoholic or not, within easy reach. Watch "Friends", drinking when instructed to do the following rules. In case of confusion over whether or not to drink, always err on the side of drinking. Enjoy a great show!

Take a sip if....

* Phoebe says a "Phoebism" * Chandler says a "Chandlerism" * If Ross takes longer to say a sentence than a normal person would * Rachel calls someone "Honey" * A celebrity makes an appearence * Any of the six drinks or mentions a coffee product * The exterior of Central Perk is shown * The exterior of Monica/Rachel's and Chandler/Joey's apartment building is shown * Any of the six are shown at work (2 sips if they're actually doing any work) * Any of the main character's parents show up * Any two or more main characters hug (2 sips if it's Ross and Rachel) * Joey doesn't understand something that should be totally obvious (2 sips if you didn't get it either) * The hallway between Monica/Rachel's and Chandler/Joey's apartment is shown * Gunther moans to himself how much he loves/wants Rachel * Any animal is shown (Smelly Cat, a chick, a duck, etc.) * Ross and Rachel argue * Chandler and Monica Argue
