After 'Friends' Ended, Matt LeBlanc Stole That Magnetic Drawing Toy From Chandler and Joey's Apartment For the Sweetest Reason

Trending

Friends has been off the air for 15 years and it's still as popular as it's ever been. It's only natural that the cast––who've all since moved on to steady careers in television and film––would be asked about the show, even after all this time. Matt LeBlanc, who played Joey "How you doin'?" Tribbiani, shared a special something with fans during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.


LeBlanc revealed he "stole" a prop from the set of the hit show after it ended.

The characters of Joey and Chandler (who was played by Matthew Perry) had a Magna Doodle (a magnetic drawing toy) hanging on the door of their apartment. The words would change every so often, thanks to the efforts of Paul Swain a crew electrician who would play around with it.

LeBlanc says he took the Magna Doodle and gave it to Swain as a parting gift.

"I stole it and gave it to him, so he's got it. So, that's kind of cool," he said. "I could have sold it for a lot more."

That wasn't all LeBlanc took, however. He says he also took the foosball from Joey and Chandler's foosball table. It now resides in his toolbox. (It's certainly seen better days!)

"I have it in my toolbox somewhere. Why it's in my toolbox, I don't know," he shared.

LeBlanc joked that he wanted to take the couch, but that he couldn't fit it in his car.

People (still!) can't get enough of Friends.

A few thought that LeBlanc would have taken a different prop, though:

LeBlanc also found out he was wrong about the number of claps in "I'll Be There for You," the Friends theme song.

"How many claps are in the Friends theme tune?" asked host Jimmy Fallon.

"Five," LeBlanc replied.

"Oh no, it's actually four," Fallon said.

"No it's five, I've heard it like a thousand times," LeBlanc said.
