It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 15 years since the final season of Friends aired. The show had such an epic following that it was popular right until the very last episode. We still get to relive it today, though, especially now that it’s on Netflix. There have been rumors about a reunion show, but at this point, we think they are probably just teasing us. The whole cast has gone on to do bigger and better projects and some of them don’t want to come back and relive the good old days.
20.Chandler And Rachel Don’t Know Each Other
That epic pilot season had Rachel running into Central Perk in a wedding dress. Monica recognizes her and introduces her to everyone in the group. At that time, it appears as if Rachel and Chandler have never met.
19.The Locked Door Episode
During a Thanksgiving episode in season ten, Chandler and Monica lock the rest of the gang out of the apartment to punish them for being late. Rachel manages to get the door unlocked by finding an “old key” she had from when she used to live there.
18.The Unknown Middle Names
The show made it a pretty big joke when it came to revealing some of the characters middle names. Throughout different episodes, we found out that Joey is Joey Francis Tribbiani and Rachel is Rachel Karen Green.
17.Ross Has Many Birthdays
This is something a fan may never pick up on until the opportunity to binge episodes became a thing. One thing we have noticed is that Ross either has a lot of different birthdays or he doesn’t remember the day he was born.
16.Phoebe’s Mysterious Boyfriends
We have seen Phoebe with quite a few boyfriends over the years. We got pretty familiar with Mike, Gary, and David, but there were a few boyfriends that left us hanging.
15.We Need To Know What Happened To David
David used to be the love of Phoebe’s life until Mike came around. We saw him last in the Barbados episode when he proposed to her. She ended up choosing Mike over David but we never found out where David went.
14.The Permanent Ink Disappeared
During the season five finale, we get to see a drunk Ross and Rachel get married. We also see them walking around with their faces marked up with permanent ink. “Ross, I am a human doodle!” The whole point of that episode was that they were freaked out because the ink would not wash off.
13.Introducing Bruce Willis
We have to admit we loved having Jennifer Aniston date the handsome Bruce Willis. Of course, on the show, he was not Bruce Willis but just an average rich guy she happened to meet because she was Ross’ college girlfriend’s father.
12.Chandler Never Remembers
There was a point in the series where the group was watching an old prom video of Monica’s. This is where Chandler’s memory loss comes into play. During the episode titled “The One With The Prom Video,” Monica explains her size by saying that the camera adds ten pounds.
11.What Happened To Phoebe’s Dad?
Throughout the series, Phoebe’s paternity remains, for the most part, a mystery. We learn that she was abandoned by her father before she was born. Then during season two, it is revealed that her father is Frank and he lives upstate. But then in season three, we find out that her real biological father is a man named Phoebe Abbott who was in a polyamorous relationship with her mom.
10.Ross Before Carol
When we are first introduced to the relationship between Ross and Carol, we find out that his relationship with her was his first intimate experience. He continues that story even when he gets involved with Rachel. But then in the seventh season, Ross accused Chandler of being intimate with the cleaning woman, but Chandler makes it clear that it was actually Ross.
9.Phoebe’s Issues With Language
During the episode called “The One With Rachel’s Date,” Phoebe didn’t seem to know what “sous chef” meant, yet she’s supposed to be fluent in French. We didn’t notice it at first, but she should have known about the word if she knew the language well.
8.Phoebe’s Friend Denise Disappeared
During the beginning of the series, Phoebe had lived with her grandmother until she passed away. After that, she had a roommate named Denise whom she talked about from time to time. At one point, Rachel wants to move in with Phoebe because she finds out that Ross didn’t get their marriage annulled.
7.Chandler Does Cry
There was a whole episode focused on the fact that Chandler is unable to cry. It was called “The One Where Chandler Can’t Cry” and his friends spent the whole episode trying to make him cry.
6.When Ross Says “Rachel” At His Wedding
One of the most epic scenes was wedding between Ross and Emily where Ross calls her “Rachel.” Considering what that statement would mean to the dynamic of Ross and Rachel, the two never discuss it.
5.Is Rachel Unemployed?
Rachel and Ross fans got the ending they wanted during the series finale when Rachel got off the plane and decided to stay with Ross. She was supposed to go to Paris where this amazing job was waiting for her. Instead, she threw it all away to rekindle her relationship with Ross.
4.The Lost Wedding Venue
Monica made such a big deal about getting married at the museum that it was kind of weird that she didn’t end up getting married there. Before she got engaged, she stated that the perfect venue for her wedding would be the museum. She got herself on the waiting list even though she wasn’t engaged yet.
3.What Did They Study In College?
Monica, Rachel, Chandler, and Ross all went to college, but there wasn’t a whole lot discussed about what they studied while they were there. We have to assume that Ross studied palaeontology.
2.Chandler Forgot He Said “I Love You” Already
We already know that Chandler has memory loss issues or so it seems anyways. When he told the group that he was in love with Monica in the episode called “The One Where They All Find Out,” she hears the declaration and comes out stunned that he said he loved her.
1.Judy Doesn’t Apologize To Monica
The running joke throughout the series is that Monica’s mother, Judy, criticizes everything about her life. From her job to her clothing, Monica can never catch a break when it comes to her mother.
