Here are Jessica Rothe’s movie picks (with a bit of Friends thrown in). Audio versions are featured after the transcript:

“I love The Princess Bride, that is a movie that no matter how I am feeling I can turn it on and it makes me feel (happy). (It’s the) same with The Sound of Music. That’s a huge comfort movie.

I’ve watched it, I don’t know how many times. Honestly, right now for me it’s binge re-watching all of Friends. It’s on Netflix and when I thought it was going to go off Netflix that was an issue for me because it’s like when I want something that just feels comfortable and homey, it’s Friends.”
