We all have seen F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and we all love it. It is my favorite go-to sitcom and have watched all 10 seasons TWICE. It is a show that never ceases to make us laugh! And recently I got super excited when I heard the news there will be F.R.I.E.N.D.S. union episode aired on February 21, 2016.
While we anxiously wait for that special episode, these 10 facts are must-know if you are a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. fan.
10. Courtney Cox as Rachel Green?
Imagine if Jennifer Aniston was Monica and Courtney Cox was Rachel? Unimaginable! Thanks to Courtney, who was approached to play Rachel but after reading the script, felt she resonated with Monica’s character.
9. Joey was written as a ‘smart’ character
We all love Joey and love his witty remarks. However, Joey’s character was not dumb. Matthew LeBlanc suggested to make the character dumb. Good suggestion Matt! We all love Joey.
8. Who said the first line of the series
If you are a die-hard FRIENDS fan then you must know this. The first line is ‘There’s nothing to tell‘ and it was said by Monica.
7. Matthew Perry doesn’t remember filming last few seasons
As grounded Chandler was, Matthew Perry in real life was not like his reel character. The actor was addicted to prescription pills and was so high that he does remember what happened during the shoot.
6. I’ll be there for you….
This song was our cue to leave whatever we were doing and get in front of the television. The song was shot 5 in the morning at Warner Brothers Studio in LA.
5. Remember Marcel?
Ross’s exotic and illegal pet monkey was fired from the show. He was too hard to work with!
4. Quirky Phoebe
Phoebe was funny, absent-minded and quirky. In real life, she is an exact of the character she played. Lisa Kudrow has a degree in Biology from Vassar College. Go Phoebe!
3. ‘The Rachel‘ cut
I loved Rachel’s hairstyle. But did you know ‘The Rachel‘ cut was an accident? Chris McMillan was high when he gave her the cut. And while we went ga-ga over the haircut, Jennifer Anistor absolutely despises this cut.
2. Popularity Switch
Courtney Cox was a well-known face while Jennifer Aniston was a struggling actress with four flop television serials when F.R.I.E.N.D.S. started. By the end of 10 seasons, Jennifer Aniston was a well known actress and one of the most popular F.R.I.E.N.D.S. cast.
1. One of the Racist Shows on Television
F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is considered to be one of the most racist shows of all time. You know why? Because it was the only TV show which only had white cast.
