“Oh, my God, favorite episode. No, I don’t have the exact one. I don’t even have one favorite character, because it’s impossible to choose. When I first watched, my favorite character was Phoebe, then it was Monica. I’m not sure even now. Yeah, I love the show. And Kaja loves it as well actually. We used to watch it together. So, yeah.”
