While the special will be unscripted, each cast member has an idea of what their character would be doing present day. 

Aniston says for Rachel, “I would like to have maybe started a clothing line of my own, and it’s sort of a small franchise.”

Kudrow thinks that Phoebe, “is living in Connecticut with Mike and their kids, and she’s in charge of the arts program for the school.”

Perry, Chandler, says that he, “Would be a wonderful father and a wonderful comedy writer.”

LeBlanc suggests Joey, “Would have opened a chain of sandwich shops.”

Finally, Schwimmer says that Ross, “Would’ve invested in Joey’s sandwich shop and lost a lot of savings for his kids.” The cast tells People.
