25 Things About Friends That Made No Sense | ScreenRant
We're glad they didn't stick with the original name The show was originally intended to be called Insomnia Cafe but producers thought it wouldn't catch on. Age gaps Courteney Cox is actually older than David Schwimmer in real life even though Monica is Ross's younger sister. Covering up that bump The storyline of Phoebe carrying her brother's triplets was only written because Lisa Kudrow was pregnant in real life and didn't want to take time out from filming.
By then they were some of the most famous stars in the world. Never ageing Ross Image: Warner Bros Desperate to cling on to the something vibe, producers kept Ross at age 29 for three years. If only it were so easy in real life!
Pucker up All of the six main characters have kissed each other at one point except Monica and Phoebe. Getty Joey wasn't initially supposed to be a male bimbo but an intelligent struggling actor. Then, she saw him in a new way, only for him to get together with the woman Ross liked. On a trip to Barbados, that all changed. Joey and Charlie broke up. Ross and Charlie got together, as did Rachel and Joey.
There was even a very awkward, very unnecessary double date in season Sometimes you're just meant to be friends, like Rachel and Joey. While Rachel and Joey cared about each other and had no problem kissing, they couldn't go further than that. She even slapped him — several times — when they tried. So, they tried to force it before deciding they were just meant to be friends.
The problem is that Rachel and Joey could have worked. They were friends first, and they clearly cared about each other. However, it was clear that the series would return to Ross and Rachel by the end. That meant that Joey and Rachel's relationship was simply done to get it out of the way. Then, the series could return to Ross and Rachel for the finale. Phoebe found Monica's bathing suit from high school in there.
Chandler made a joke about the suit covering Connecticut when it rained. Then, when they all watched the prom video, they saw overweight Monica.
She said the camera added 10 pounds, and Chandler asked, "how many cameras are actually on you? However, that should not have been the case, given flashbacks in later episodes. Those flashbacks were to when Monica and Rachel were in high school and Ross and Chandler were college roommates.

Chandler knew Monica before she lost weight. In fact, he had called her fat. To get back at him, she lost weight and then tried to seduce him to humiliate him.
In doing so, she accidentally dropped a knife on his foot. Because of his shoes and her accidentally bringing a carrot to the hospital, he lost a toe. This was obviously not something that had been planned from the beginning of the series, given Chandler's reaction in season 2.
However, as a fan, it's hard to forget those moments. Then, they all proceeded to make other plans and were late. Monica and Chandler locked everyone out, but Rachel remembered her old key. The key worked in the lock, though they remained locked out, thanks to the chain.
However, that "old key" should not have worked in the lock. That wasn't the same lock on the door from when Rachel lived in the apartment. The building's super, Mr. Treeger, had had to change the lock two years earlier. When Monica and Chandler went on their honeymoon in season 8, Phoebe and Joey needed access to their apartment. She needed her guitar, and he needed food.
Since the couple hadn't trusted either with a key, they called Mr. Treeger and lied about a gas leak. He had too many keys on his keychain to go through them all, so he called the fire department. They broke down the door, and he had to change the lock when he replaced it. So, how did Rachel's "old key" work in the new lock?
This could have easily been fixed by Rachel saying she had a spare key. While Monica and Chandler didn't trust Joey or Phoebe, they could have trusted her with one. They cared about each other. They supported each other.
Fans watched them fall in love and understood why they stayed in love. On the other hand, Ross and Rachel were so obviously planned as an endgame couple. That was why some of the writing for them as friends and as a couple didn't make sense.
Fans were supposed to root for them to get together, stay together and reunite. Over the years, however, it was hard to see why. Looks like opposites really do attract, even when one of them is being horrible. How jealous he got about Mark and the fact that he didn't seem to support her career at all. That continued to be true even in the final season. Rachel had an amazing opportunity to move to Paris.
Without her knowledge which was a recurring theme, see their marriagehe got her her old job back. He didn't even realize or care to find out what she wanted until after he'd done so. Then, he made his big romantic gesture of stopping her at the gate before she left. That was again about what he wanted. Chandler then got a new roommate, Eddie, who was never going to last. Everyone knew that Joey would be back and Eddie would just be forgotten about when that time came. However, that didn't excuse how that happened.
Yes, Eddie was creepy. He accused Chandler of being with his ex because she dropped off his fish tank. Chandler woke up one night to find him sitting in his room, watching him sleep. Eddie saw nothing wrong with that.
He said it made him feel "peaceful. He acted like they never talked about him moving out. It was completely understandable that Chandler wanted him gone. It made sense that he had to go to an extreme to make it happen. However, what made no sense is how he accomplished that. When Eddie returned to the apartment one day, Chandler and Joey claimed that he had never lived there.
They said Joey never moved out. Eddie actually agreed with them and said he had the wrong apartment. He apologized to them for the mistake and left. Phoebe even turned to her birth mother for advice. She had been struggling with whether to be a surrogate for her brother and his wife.
It was an important arc for Phoebe. They even had her think her adoptive mother's spirit was living on in a cat. Phoebe's reasoning was that she was worried about being replaced.
However, after that arc ended, Phoebe's birth mother was never mentioned again. Family members disappearing happens all the time on TV shows. Usually it has to do with an actor's availability. That's understandable, but that didn't happen here.
It would have been really easy for them to just have a line here and there about Phoebe's birth mother. Phoebe could have easily said she was having dinner with her at least once. There was no explanation for why she wasn't at Phoebe and Mike's rehearsal dinner. The snow storm explained why some people weren't able to make it to the wedding at least. That was a fact. Even when they got engaged, Ross and Rachel's relationship was hanging over their heads.
He had to decide whether or not to invite her to his wedding. He did and she only decided at the last minute to go. Rachel also planned to tell him she still loved him, but decided not to in the end.
It was the right move. At the wedding, Ross said Rachel's name. For some reason, Emily didn't leave him at the altar and went through with the ceremony.
She even decided to give him another chance and showed up at the airport for their honeymoon. She then saw him about to get on their flight with Rachel. Emily didn't deserve to be treated like a bad guy, she'd been through enough with Ross. Emily was still going to give him another chance after that. However, it came with an ultimatum. She'd move to New York to be with him, but he couldn't see Rachel anymore. It may have been a bit extreme, but it was also reasonable from her point of view, given what happened in London.
Her other demands were a bit too much. She wanted him to move and sell anything that Rachel ever touched.

That wasn't how Friends framed it, however. All of a sudden, Emily became the bad guy. She was too controlling. No one liked her. Rachel let her think it was Monica's. The season 8 premiere took place on the same day as Monica and Chandler's wedding. It was then that Rachel admitted it was her test and she was the one who was pregnant. She and Ross had spent the night together when they were sending out Monica and Chandler's wedding invitations.
Big moments like pregnancy reveals and babies being born tend to happen during May Sweeps on TV.

That was true with Rachel. But, the timeline just didn't work for Rachel's pregnancy. She should have given birth to Emma at some point during season 8, not at the end of it. Even saying that both finales didn't happen in May, it would still only give about a month or so leeway time.
