This is a much more intriguing Friends alternate ending than that fan's psychological thriller that went viral a few weeks ago.

Within the Friends friends, Phoebe and Joey always had a special bond. Probably because they were the least self-centered ones, yes offense to Chandler. People recently interviewed Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow, and the writer straight up asked why the two never hooked up. LeBlanc revealed that they actually wanted it to happen:

Towards the end we actually pitched the idea that Joey and Phoebe had been having casual sex the entire time. We'd go back and shoot all the historical scenes and just before a moment that everyone recognizes, there's Joey and Phoebe coming out of a broom closet together. But they were like, 'Nah.'
