David Schwimmer Talks Ross and Rachel's Break on Friends

23 Years Later, David Schwimmer Weighs In on Ross and Rachel's "We Were on a Break" Debate

It's a decades-long, often-heated debate among Friends fans: were Rachel Green and Ross Geller *really* on a break in season three when Ross got with Chloe, aka "the hot girl from the Xerox place"? Twenty-three years after the dispute-sparking episode aired, David Schwimmer weighed in with his two cents while speaking with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Monday night.

"People are so passionately divided about whether or not they were on a break," Schwimmer said. When Fallon asked him for his official stance on the matter, the 53-year-old actor responded, "Yeah, it's not even a question. They were on a break," totally emulating Ross's line delivery, no less. Now, this response doesn't clear up whether Ross's one-time fling with Chloe is technically defined as cheating, but alas, we like to think that Ross and Rachel would still be together today regardless. Now, can that darn Friends reunion special just air already so we can get some more answers, please?
