Fan Theory Suggests Phoebe From 'Friends' Is Actually A Teleporting Alien

Fan Theory Suggests Phoebe From 'Friends' Is Actually A Teleporting Alien

Maybe it was her ditzy, scatterbrained personality - or perhaps because she was a bit of a hippie - but there was always something a bit mystical about Phoebe from Friends.

Well, it turns out the truth was there right in front of us the whole time. Phoebe is a mystical, magical being from another planet. Don't believe us? Then check out this clip from the very first episode.

Blink and you'll miss it, but in this scene, Phoebe - brought to life by the brilliant Lisa Kudrow, of course - is in two places at once.

There she is in the kitchen, holding a cup of coffee and talking to Rachel. And then the camera switches and - abracadabra! - there she is sitting on the living room sofa with the same cup in her hand.

So either she can be in two places at once or she has the power of teleportation. And yes, it's a bit of a waste of energy and talent to teleport just a couple of metres away, but if you've got it, flaunt it.

Fan Theory Suggests Aquaman Might Actually Be A Villain

Of course, there are some people who are claiming that this is actually just a mistake - a continuity error that escaped the eyes of the show's editors - but that sounds a bit too convenient, doesn't it? The obvious explanation is right in front of us.

If you missed it, Friends was recently voted by the users of Ranker.com as the best sitcom of all-time - which you might have thought was based on the chemistry of the characters and quality of the show, but presumably it's because one of the cast was an alien. The Ranker community clearly knew about Phoebe's special powers already.

That's not the only fan theory about Friends to do the rounds though. There's one that suggests Joey and Monica were drug addicts (owing to Joey's appetite and Monica's job), not to mention the one that believes Rachel and Joey - not Rachel and Ross - were meant to be together.

There's also a super confusing, very meta theory that Joey was a real person playing a character based on himself (as opposed to Matt LeBlanc just playing dumb) and one incredibly dark theory that suggested the whole 10 seasons were all a fantasy invented by a meth-addicted Phoebe as she stared through the window of Central Perk at a bunch of strangers.

Jesus. We'll take the teleporting Phoebe any day...
