- As Matt LeBlanc told USA Today (8/8/17), "I made a lot of money, a f---ing lot of money on Friends. How much? Over $100 million. We still make money on it. And my accountant would love a reunion. But that show was about a finite period of time, between finishing school and getting married, when your friends are your family. To go back and revisit that ... all those characters have moved on. In the finale, everybody went their separate ways: Phoebe got married, Monica and Chandler got married, Ross and Rachel got married. Joey’s in California. What’s the story?”
