Phoebe Buffet almost had a very different ending on Friends.

In an interview with RadioTimes, the shows co-creator David Crane revealed that the happy ending Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) had with Mike (Paul Rudd) almost never happened.

Instead, she was going to end up with David (Hank Azaria).

Remember David? He was introduced early on in the show and later confessed his love for Phoebe before going on a research trip to Minsk in Russia.

“There was definitely a possibility of that,” Crane said.

“I mean, we didn’t definitively know (who she’d end up with).”


“They’re both amazing actors. I mean, both Paul and Hank are fantastic, and fantastic with her. We sort of went back and forth,” he added.

But in the end, Phoebe and Mike got married in the final season in the episode “The One With Phoebe’s Wedding”.
