Joey (Matt LeBlanc) and Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) in Friends
Viewers of the Friends series will remember that Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) and Joey (Matt LeBlanc) had several romantic moments in the TV show that could theoretically be developed, but the creators of the project somehow abandoned the characters’ love line. Writer David Crane, in a recent interview, explained this plot choice.
According to Crane, Phoebe and Joey would never be a couple, despite the so-called “perfect” kiss scene, for example.
We felt that continuing this whole story would be a mistake. When your goal is to keep a common storyline for six characters, it would be very easy to go down this path, but I think we all felt that it would be a mistake … Then everything would be too good.
– he said.

The news about Phoebe and Joey came after discussions in the press that the writers did not plan to make Monica (Courtney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) a couple, but changed plans under the onslaught of fans of the series, who really wanted to see the characters together.
We will remind, last month there were reports that the creators of the popular sitcom are in talks to shoot its sequel.
