Friends Gender-Reveal Banner Channels Phoebe Suggesting Ross and Rachel Name a Baby Boy "Phoebo"
We love a product that capitalizes on the beloved series Friends, especially when it's a product for the youngest fans (like this monthly milestone blanket!). However, Etsy shop owner CraftyCurlsShop is introducing babies to Friends in the womb with her gender-reveal banners, one of which highlights one of the show's funniest lines.
Up among the show's best Friends moments of all time is a season eight scene that takes place on the Central Perk couch in which Ross and a pregnant Rachel sit down with Phoebe and start talking about their baby's potential name. They don't know the sex at this point, so Phoebe, ever straight-faced, tells them she's been thinking about baby names for them. "If it's a girl, Phoebe. And if it's a boy, Phoebo."
The line is so hilarious that it's nodded to again later, when Rachel and Ross are at an ultrasound appointment and realize that their doctor knows the baby's sex. "You have it right there in that file? You can tell us if it's a boy or girl? Dayton or Sandrine? Phoebe or Phoebo?" Rachel says, which prompts her doctor to say a minute later, "I know it's really not my place, but please don't name your child Phoebo."
So whether you're into the idea of gender reveals or not, there's no denying that CraftyCurlsShops' Phoebe or Phoebo Gender Reveal Banner ($28) is a hysterical nod to a nostalgic show that deserves
Lisa Kudrow's kudos. Shop it ahead!
