It would seem that Georgia Miller is, like all of us, a fan of Friends. The mother of the family indeed refers several times to the mythical sitcom of the nineties in Ginny and Georgiastarting with this quote in episode 2 of season 1. As Ginny returns from an evening with friends, after having made her mother believe that she is going to the cinema, Georgia is waiting for her and asks her ironically: “Was this movie good? ». However, knowing that her mother knows that she lied, Ginny tells her: “It’s okay, mom. I know you know “. To which Georgia replies: “But they don’t know that we know that they know that we know”.

The fans of Friends obviously all recognized the famous replica of Phoebein episode 14 of season 5 of the sitcom, when she discovers that Monica and Chandler know that she and Rachel know about their relationship.

We learn that the latter’s sister changed her specialty several times in college. His father then said: “And do you remember when you got into criminology back then?” I was not even allowed to watch New York, judicial police because of the inaccuracies “. Ouch.

The other more subtle reference to Friends (season 1, episode 7)

When we tell you that Georgia is a fan of Friends, it’s not for nothing. The mother of the family again winks at the cult series in episode 7 of season 1 of Ginny and Georgia except that, this time, only the die-hard fans among you might have noticed. After a discussion with her daughter Ginny, Georgia tells her that they are broke and adds: “Welcome to adulthood. It sucks”. An expression that is reminiscent of Monica’s famous line to Rachel in the very first episode of Friendsright after the latter cut off her credit cards.

Courteney Cox’s character says to that of Jennifer Aniston : “Welcome to earth, my dear! It’s horror, you’re going to enjoy it”. If this reference is perhaps not easy to find in the French version, it is more so in the original version. Indeed, Georgia says to Ginny: “Welcome to adulthood. It sucks ». For her part, Monica says to Rachel: “Welcome to the real world!” It sucks, you’re gonna love it! ».

Season 2 of Ginny and Georgia It also offers us its share of references to the series of the nineties, and in particular episode 4 which contains a package. While Georgia finds herself alone face to face with Marcus, she does not hesitate to warn him. Then, when Ginny arrives and finds them both face to face, Georgia says to her: “Put a guy out the window? Is it a series from the 90s? Which one is it ? Clarissa Explains It All? Dawson? What happens in the next episode? Is someone going to get depressed or go out with the teacher? I want to know more! ».

While Ginny and Marcus may not have all the references at the time, due to their young age, those who grew up in the 90s obviously know what Georgia is about. We remember Joey, who went through the window of Dawson’s room, in each episode of the teen drama to find him; or even of Pacey who had an affair with his teacher Tamara Jacobs.

Also in episode 4 of the second season of Ginny and Georgia, as the teenager is about to leave for school, her mother asks her if she plans to go there in this outfit. To which Ginny replies: “It’s impossible for you to let me go without noticing, is it?” ». Georgia then replies: “No, I love it! It’s really very ‘it’s me, the vampire who just showed up in Sunnydale'”. This is obviously a nod to buffy the vampire slayerSunnydale being the fictional town where the action of the series takes place.
