Friends fans all remember Monica as the sensible one, keeping the group together, but what if she was actually hiding a dark habit all along?
Courteney Cox’s character was always a bit highly strung and full-on on the show, and now a Reddit user has produced a fan theory that claims she had a secret drug addiction throughout the show’s ten seasons.
The theory reads: “Monica is a restaurant chef, usually a Sous Chef or even head chef most of the time in some rather high end restaurants in NYC.
“First, most people that work in the restaurant industry tend to gravitate towards some sort of substance since the job is very high stress.”
The user goes on: “But that’s not even my reasoning. See, head chefs and sous chefs in high end restaurants in NYC tend to get paid a lot, like $50-$100 dollars an hour a lot.
“Monica also lives in a rent controlled apartment that she illegally sublets from her dead grandmother, she even has a roommate to share the bills with. She doesn’t own an obscene amount of clothes or anything, doesn’t go out to bars regularly, so where exactly does her money go?”
Next, the Reddit user goes on to say where she stashes her supply, which would kind of explain why she was so protective about the closet…
“Cocaine, which she stashes in the closet by the big windows, which is why when Chandler opens it in the last season, she flips out because she doesn’t want him to find her cocaine stash.
“It also explains why Monica is so high energy and high strung.”
Convinced? We’re not sure.
That’s not all either – the user also goes on to suggest that Joey was also a big drug user.
“As for Joey, Joey pretty much smokes weed all day. That’s why he’s always hungry, can eat a ton of food and is constantly napping and is kind of spaced out and a lot of what other people say goes ‘whoosh’ right over his head.”
