Shell shocked! 

11 Things About F.R.I.E.N.D.S. That Even Its Die Hard Fans Failed To Notice 

Most of us have seen, 'Friends'. The American television sitcom was a huge hit. It was not only talked about when the show was ongoing but it is still talked about a great deal. The characters, although just six of them, impressed us the most with their performance. Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, Rachel, Ross, and Joey. We knew the characters so well that we felt bad when the series ended. 

No matter how many times we watched it, the show gave us hearty laugh every time we saw it. 

But despite watching it several times, how many mistakes could you figure out in it?  What, none? See again. The show, however perfect, had its own failures that are fun to pick at.   

So let's see what were those goof ups?

1.0 The Orange Sofa

Wondering why the orange sofa was always occupied by 6 friends?

Well, well. If you observed closely, you'd know that it was always "reserved" for them.

2.0 The Pilot

In the pilot episode when Rachel barges into the Central Park in her wedding dress, after meeting Monica, she is introduced to Joey, Phoebe, Ross and Chandler.   

2.1 The One With the Flashback

But a few episodes later in 'The One With the Flashback,' we realise that Rachel and Chandler knew each other from high school and college days. Weird.   

3. Alessandro

When you look closely, there was a jar placed in the kitchen at Alessandro's (restaurant) where everyone had to put money when Monica cursed or yelled. Clearly, she did that a lot.  

4.0 The Window

Did you ever notice the window in Monica's kitchen closely? 

4.1 If you did...

...you'd find that the scene outside the window always kept changing. From brick walls to stairs to nothing.   

5.0 The Magna Doodle Board

The Magna Doodle Board on Joey and Chandler's apartment door was shown in every episode. It also had a lot of funny messages written on it most of the times.   

5.1 Monica and Chandler

Remember when Monica and Chandler opened up about their relationship to everyone? That Magna Board had a cute heart with their initials.    

6. The surnames

In the opening credits of season 6, episode 1, they added, "Arquette" to the end of everyone's names in honour of Courtney and David's marriage.  

7. The Age Factor

Ross didn't age for at least three seasons. He said he was 29 in season 3, 4 and 5. Also, Dr Geller had 2 different birthdays: One in December and the other in October.  

8. The Closest Friends

We love Chandler's jokes and sarcastic comments. But in case you didn't notice, none of his closest friends ever laughed at his humour.  

9. The Nurse

Who can forget Joey's amazing agent, Estelle Leonard? She really helped Joey with his career. Either way, the same actress also played a nurse in the episode when Ross's son was born.    

10. The Belly

In the last episode of the series, Monica and Chandler come home with their adopted twins. But Courtney Cox was actually pregnant in real life, and sometimes her belly was noticeable.   

11. The Wedding Dress

Remember that episode where Monica picks up Emily's wedding dress and ends up wearing it with her girlfriends. Emily ended up wearing a different dress and Rachel's dress from Barry also changed. Monica and Emily were supposed to wear the same dress.
