It’s Lisa Kudrow’s birthday on 30 July, and surprisingly, the energetic and hilarious Friends star is 51 – who would’ve thought it?

To celebrate the birth of one of our favourite Friends characters (actually who are we kidding? They’re all our faves) we’ve compiled a list of the best episodes and scenes from the US sitcom.

Plus there's a Phoebe-centred quiz for fellow Friends fans to sink their teeth into (scroll down for all of the answers).

THE BIG PHOEBE QUIZ

(Compiled by ELLE's number one Friends fan, Joely Walker)

  1. When Phoebe’s dollhouse burns down where does the fire start?

  2. Who plays Phoebe’s brother Frank Jr?

  3. What are the names of the triplets that Phoebe gave birth to?

  4. In the episode where Ross makes Phoebe cry about having never been in a serious relationship, what is the name of Phoebe’s fictional long-term boyfriend?

  5. What is the name of Phoebe’s pet rat?

  6. What is the name of Phoebe’s 'scientist guy' boyfriend?

  7. Where does Phoebe's 'scientist guy' boyfriend move to for his research grant?

  8. What does Phoebe say her name is to the security guard in Vegas?
