Understand, I haven’t watched Friends in years. So, if anything, what follows is an educated guess on how the show wraps up…
In the next-to-last scene of the series, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey, Chandler and Ross are at Central Perk — and get into a huge fight. With the fight *really* heating up, Monica walks out of the coffee shop.
Just as she exits, she gets hit in the head by a newspaper delivery boy as he’s throwing a copy of the Sunday New York Times. Monica’s knocked out cold dead. Fade to black.
Then, in the final scene, Lauren Keaton wakes up in bed with Alex P. Keaton, played by special guest star Michael J. Fox. Alex asks, “Honey, what’s wrong?” Lauren says, “Man, I had the *strangest* dream. I was sitting in a coffee shop with a bunch of friends. One of them’s a dumb soap star. And another…ugh…kept singing some stupid song about smelly cats. And then…oh man…there was this ugly naked guy.”
