No need to tape that final episode of "Friends" (search) for posterity — Warner Bros. plans to release a DVD of the finale just five days after its Thursday broadcast.

The series finale, which wraps up the NBC sitcom about six young adults living in Manhattan, is available by pre-order from the Warner Home Video Web site ($9.95).

The disc includes the original pilot episode that introduced the characters of Monica, Chandler, Joey, Ross, Rachel and Phoebe nearly 10 years ago, along with exclusive behind-the-scenes material.

The show's hour-long conclusion airs Thursday on NBC at 9 p.m. EDT, preceded by an hour-long retrospective.
