Phoebe Abbott is Phoebe and Ursula Buffay's birth mother. She is portrayed by Teri Garr.


Phoebe Abbott is Phoebe Buffay's birth mother. As it turns out, Frank Buffay, Lily, and Phoebe were all in a sexual relationship which lead to Phoebe becoming pregnant. After giving birth to the twins, Phoebe left and Frank and Lily married and raised the twins on their own before Frank divorced Lily and left.

She is first introduced when Phoebe Buffay finds out that this woman knew her parents. Chandler, Joey, Ross, Monica, and Rachel head to a beach house to stay while Phoebe visits someone whom she thinks is a friend of her mother's. When Phoebe visits Phoebe Abbott, she starts questioning her about her parents and what they were like. Phoebe Abbott lies to Phoebe Buffay but she soon realises she's lying. When the truth comes out that Phoebe Abbott is in fact Phoebe Buffay's birth mother, the two Phoebes build up a relationship.

Her last appearance is when Phoebe Buffay is having trouble deciding whether or not to be a surrogate for her brother Frank Jr. and his wife Alice. Phoebe Abbott loans her daughter a puppy to look after and see how hard it is to give up the puppy. This does not go to plan and Phoebe Buffay ends up giving the puppy to Frank Jr. and Alice. She then agrees to be the surrogate because she saw how happy the puppy made Frank Jr. and Alice.

Frank and Lily named Phoebe after her birth mother.
