Dream: Friends, Yes, the TV Show

INT. HOSPITAL WAITING ROOM
A brightly-lit large waiting room at a hospital.  ROSS enters, rushed and excited.  A DOCTOR is waiting for him.

ROSS

So doctor, you wouldn’t believe this, but I just met this guy, and he was like the biggest blowhard ever.  And he was eating breaded chicken feet, right there!  Who does that?  And he just kept going with his inane diatribe…

The DOCTOR listens patiently, but the audience can see he’s getting pissed.

ROSS

…and here’s the thing, his last name was the same as yours, Sauvage.  I mean what are the odds?

DOCTOR
(deadpan)

That’s because he’s my son.

STUDIO AUDIENCE LAUGHS.

INT. SOME PUBLIC SPACE IN NEW YORK CITY
A dimly-lit area.  People are walking about.

MONICA (V.O.)

I’m so glad Rachel is in New York City! I wonder what fun she’s having.

Rachel skulks about, not having fun.

END DREAM

So yes, I actually just had a dream that was an episode of Friends.  I was very sorry to wake up.  I got out of bed within a few minutes, but I should’ve arisen immediately, because it all faded away too quickly.  I believe Phoebe was there, too, but now I can’t remember what part she played in the story.  I know Chandler and Joey weren’t there, but Monica definitely had that voiceover.

Analysis

Last night we watched the first episode of The Undoing, which took place in New York City, and if you’ve seen this, too, you’ll recognize the same-name bit.  And earlier in the day, I remember seeing a photo of a woman wearing a F˖R˖I˖E˖N˖D˖S t-shirt.  But what about breaded chicken feet and Ross’s surgery?  I’m 99% certain Ross was there for some kind of surgery, though I no longer recall what for.  Wait, I did catch up on the latest episode of Warrior, and even though I may not have seen actual breaded chicken feet, there were a couple of scenes where people were eating, so who knows, maybe I did.  And oh, just for the record, it was early season Friends, all the cast members looking quite young.
