Lobster Experts In Maine Disproving FRIENDS “She’s Your Lobster” And I’m Triggered
25 years of FRIENDS this year and THIS?!
It’s one of the most iconic scenes in the sitcoms history. It’s something that brought Ross and Rachel together …and Maine is trying to ruin it!
Okay, sure I’m overreacting a bit, but rightfully so. I just want me favorite series to be as it is, without errors pointed out (yes, I know all of their birthdays and ages change throughout the seasons, yes I know Ross’ son magically disappears, etc, etc.)
So here’s the scoop: In Season 2 episode 14 (“The One With The Prom Video”) Phoebe is quoted saying, “It’s a known fact that lobsters fall in love and mate for life . . . you can actually see old lobster couples walkin’ around their tank, holding claws.”
According to the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative, quote, “Lobsters, by nature, are not monogamous and do not pair for life.
“A dominant male will actually mate with multiple females during encounters that last days to weeks. A literal example of ‘love on the rocks.'”
Everything we’ve ever believed from our FRIENDS-ucation….it’s wrong. *Insert Sad Face Here*
I’ll forever hold this episode close, like how Phoebe described lobsters in the first place….
