Judith "Judy" Geller born October 13 1949 is the mother of Ross Geller and Monica Geller and wife to Jack Geller. She is cheerfully critical of Monica, particularly her usual lack of a boyfriend and how her ears are "not her best feature". Judy openly favors Ross, and makes fun of Monica for many reasons, one being that she will not find someone to get married to ("The One With Ross's Wedding").

Jack and Judy Geller



Judy's mother Althea was quite critical of her and this was passed down to Judy acting the same way to Monica.

Jack GellerEdit

Judy and her husband, Jack love each other very much, therefore they are a very happily married couple.

Ross Geller and Monica GellerEdit

Judy unconsciously favors Ross over Monica because of his loveable nature over Monica's silly behavior. She is usually critical of Monica and can make fun of her for some things, like the fact she can't get married.

Rachel GreenEdit

Judy has a good relationship with Rachel as she's her daughter's best friend. They have a relationship of mutual respect and friendliness and they both grow closer to being related when Rachel has Emma and Judy becomes her paternal grandfather due to Judy's son being Emma's father. It is hinted that Judy becomes Rachel's mother-in-law and Rachel becomes Judy's daughter-in-law when it's hinted that Ross and Rachel had remarried.

Chandler BingEdit

Judy and Chandler first met in 1987 where he joined Ross at the Gellers' house for Thanksgiving dinner. They didn't fully interact again until "The One Where Ross Got High" where she and Jack come to dinner at Monica's apartment and she is not quite fully supportive of him at first, but changes her mind and she and Jack take a liking to him and thank him for standing by Ross during his "drug problems" and for "taking on Monica as well".
