First test: What happens when you see or hear *clap-clap-clap-clap*? If it doesn’t immediately trigger R.E.M.’s “I’ll Be There For You,” you’re probably not a massive Friends fan. The song is as iconic as Rachel’s haircut. (Though, why Gunther’s ‘do never caught on is beyond reason!)

Now that Friends is on HBOMax, there’s zero excuse for not filling every waking second with the antics from those six wild and wacky friends. Monica, Ross, Chandler, Rachel, Joey, and Phoebe have been off our screens since 2004, but are still pop culture icons for today’s generation.

From the moment the show’s pilot aired, people began picking favorites and shipping certain characters. It may not have been called “shipping” back then, but we were all rooting for Mon and Chandler from the very beginning, right? Could there be a cuter couple? This set of Friends trivia is made for fans old and new, fair-weather or truly obsessed. How well can you do? Let’s find out!
