Joey, the lovable and funny character from Friends, was the glue that held the group together. He had close bonds with everyone, including Chandler, Monica, Rachel, Ross, and especially Phoebe. Joey made sacrifices for his friends and was always there for them when they needed him. Without him, the group dynamic would have been completely different, and the impact of his absence would have been much greater. Fortunately, the spin-off series Joey was canceled after two seasons due to low ratings, leaving the tight-knit group intact.
