Friends: 15 Unbelievable Details From Episodes That Answer Yours Long-Held Questions

Every show has die-hard fans, but the Friends die-hards are probably the most dedicated and knowledgeable fans of any display. Fans know about everything there is to know about the show. Because of this, Friends trivia can be pretty dull. Since so many fans and people still watch Friends, it seems like every tiny detail has been talked about. Well, almost every little thing you could imagine. We can’t believe it, but we’re still finding little things in the show that we thought was unimportant. So, we wanted to show you some of the less well-known details. Surprisingly, many of these details add much information about the characters and the plot. You may have noticed some of these details before, but until now, you probably didn’t know what they meant. Here are 15 amazing things from Friends episodes that answer long-standing questions.

What Kinds of Towels Does Monica Have?

The gang plays a trivia game about themselves in “The One with the Embryos,” and Monica’s apartment is the prize. It’s clear who wins. But don’t forget the question about how Monica organises her towels. With 11, the guys are right about the number of types of towels. They say, “Every day, guest, fancy guest,” but then they have to say a number because time is running out. We don’t know anything about the other groups. But later, when most of the packing is done, we can see some boxes in the background. Many of these are labelled with things like “beach towel,” “old towel,” “fancy towel,” “kitchen towel,” and “bath towel.” We now know there are eight groups in total. Anything could be in the other three groups.

What is Monica’s Yell Jar for?

The Yell Jar at Monica’s restaurant is shown for the first time in the episode “The One with Rachel’s Date.” We all know that Monica can get pretty angry about anything. This goes up a lot when she works as a chef. So, the yell jar is meant to make Monica less likely to yell at her staff in this episode. We don’t see the pot, though. We only hear about it. Well, at least not right away. Tim, the sous chef, is in the background when Phoebe first meets him. It says, “Monica’s Jar,” and the fact that it’s full of money is funny.

Did Joey put up the signs?

The Friends episode “The One Where Underdog Gets Away” is one of the best Thanksgiving episodes. In the episode, Joey does some modelling for a health clinic. He didn’t know that his face would be on posters that warned people about VD. On the signs, which everyone in the group can see, says “What Mario Isn’t Telling You.” Everyone loves it because it’s so great (except Joey). Because of this, he can’t go on dates and come home for Thanksgiving. Then, to protect his name, he goes around town and messes up all the posters. We thought that was the last poster, but one of them can be seen in the background near Central Perk in a later episode called “The One with Mrs Bing.” It’s too funny to be a mistake or oversight.

Why do they have those names?

Even though this fact might not have made many people curious, we still like it as a fun fact. The episode “The One with Monica and Chandler’s Wedding” came from the episode (Part 1). ” In this episode, Rachel wants to find a minister who can quickly marry Monica and Chandler. She goes to another wedding and reads the bride and groom’s names out loud. We get that this is meant to be funny. If that’s the case, why say the names? But we don’t know why it’s strange. The joke is that Anastassakis was her father’s first last name. He changed his name to Aniston when he moved to the United States. Jennifer’s name is now Jennifer.

Is it Hugsy?


Hugsy, the stuffed penguin, was Joey Tribbiani’s favourite toy. This little guy was in more than just the episodes where he was mentioned. In the background of Friends, Hugsy could be seen walking around the apartment. After the show was over, Hugsy and Joey moved to Los Angeles. But after that, we never stopped seeing the penguin. We also saw him in shows like Spin City and Boy Meets World. Everybody Loves Raymond, 8 Simple Rules, and more. He ended up being a joke on a lot of different shows. It’s like looking for Hugsy in the game Where’s Waldo?

What’s on Joey’s script?

Ross tells Joey to write a movie script instead of playing mindless games with Chandler all day in “The One with the Wrong Sister.” Joey does what he says and has the other guys act out a play he wrote. But at the last of the episode, we find that Joey wrote another script for Rachel and Monica to act out. The material makes the women feel like they are not good enough as soon as they start. They look at the pages and think it’s gross, so they don’t want to read anymore. We believe it’s all in our heads, but someone with a sharp eye saw writing on the paper. “Tiffany, if you sat on my lap, I’d be able to smell how good you smell,” was one of Rachel’s lines.

Sign for Reservations

Fans have often wondered how the gang in Central Perk always got to sit on the best couch. In a few episodes where they had to share a couch or get kicked off it, they made jokes about it. Some fans just accepted that the sofa belonged to the main characters, while others wondered if the show was real because of how crazy the couch reservation process was. Well, it turns out that the answer was always there. In many episodes, there is a small “Reserved” sign on the table. The people who made the show thought this was a fun way to do it because the same group always got the same spot. We just missed it.

The Strong Beam


People knew that Monica’s apartment had changed strangely over the years. The table and chairs in the kitchen changed, and the beam between the door and the couch in the living room disappeared and reappeared for no apparent reason. But there is a reason. James Burrows made the pilot and many of the first episodes. At first, he liked the beam because it was something to look at. Later, it was taken away because it was hard for the crew and the shadows to use. It does come back in a few episodes in later seasons. Why? So, Burrows came back when the beam attacked again. When he came back to direct a spell, the crew would put up the shaft as a joke.

The Priests


You may have heard that a Friends episode that was supposed to air after 9/11 had to be scrapped. The creators of the attack were smart enough not to air some bad jokes about airport security. Everyone was happy when they changed it. You can still watch some of the old episodes on YouTube. In a few episodes, the first responders of New York were thanked. “FDNY” was written on Joey’s shirt, and the same was written on the Magna Doodle. Not long after that, there was a doodle called “I Heart NY.” It might have been best to honour him with “The One Where Chandler Takes a Bath.” At the show’s start, Joey is wearing a shirt that says “Capt. Billy Burke,” a fighter who died on September 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center.

That Girl’s Shirt


This isn’t a “long-held” question, but it’s a great way to connect some of the show’s actors. It comes from one of the show’s most famous episodes, “The One with the Football.” Everyone plays football with each other. Even though it’s funny, we don’t mind. While the game is going on, look at Phoebe. She is wearing that cool shirt that says “That Girl.” The show That Girl was on TV. You might not have known that. The main character was a woman in New York City who wanted to be an actress. On the front of the shirt, a cartoon version of the show’s star, Marlo Thomas, was drawn. Do you know that Marlo Thomas lives in a world of Friends? Who on the show played Rachel’s mother?

Where Is Everyone’s Safety?


Occasionally on Friends, the apartments run out of c*ndoms. Chandler and Monica’s apartments both have the same thing happen to them. We think we may know who was using them, even though this happened a long time ago on the show. Yes, Joey. You also thought about it, but we believe he used all of them for a different reason than you do. Look at the balloons at Ross’s bachelor party in “The One with the Worst Best Man Ever.” It looks like Joey used c*ndoms instead of balloons, which might explain what happened to them all. On the other hand, Joey may have used the only things he had that looked like balloons, and you know he has a lot of c*ndoms.

The Magna Doodles Nobody Can Figure Out


We’re sure you’ve all noticed that the pictures on Joey and Chandler’s Magna Doodle on the inside of their door change from episode to episode. Most of the time, these drawings and sayings were related to what was going on during the attack. For example, the doodle kept saying, “I’m sorry”, in the episode where Chandler kissed Kathy while Joey was dating her. Some are hard to figure out, but most are easy to understand. Most people are interested in two, even if it’s just because they are words. One is from “The One with the Flashbacks to Thanksgiving.” Under the number “327,” the word “Bye” is written in the shape of a heart with wings. The term “bye” probably doesn’t mean anything, but the number 327 stands for Thanksgiving because the episode aired on November 27, 1998, which was the 327th day of the year. Another strange drawing was in “The One with the Worst Best Man Ever.” But it could also reference the song “(Big Chief Like Plenty of) Fire Water” by the Wild Magnolias.

Joey’s Personal Identification Number


There are a few jokes here, some of which are obvious and one of which isn’t. He calls Phoebe once and tells her he has forgotten his PIN. So, Joey tells Phoebe to get his PIN from the ATM on the corner, where he scratched it. This is funny. Also, it’s weird that Phoebe figures it out immediately and says, “Oh, so you’re 5639.” But there’s also a joke between the two of them. The number for Joey’s PIN, 5639, is the same as the word “JOEY.” But Joey is likely to forget that.

Friends, are those the Boxer’s Chandler owns?


“The One After the Superbowl” was the Friends episode that most people watched. The two-part episode didn’t disappoint the 53 million people who watched it. With that many viewers, it’s not surprising that many people have pointed out what looks like a mistake in the filming. When Chandler comes out of the bathroom carrying the door to the stall, we can see his boxers. People think it was a mistake and that he should have been naked or wearing a thong. It wasn’t a mistake, though. He only has a pink thong on now. Chandler gives each $50 for their underwear when Joey and Ross come in. Joey says he doesn’t have any on. Joey and Ross are leaving the bathroom when we see them again. Check out Ross’s face. He’s not too outgoing. Chandler brings up the door. We can see that he is wearing boxing shorts. He has no reason to be naked. Ross is wearing the boxers he owns.

What’s up with the Russian laundry service?

What's up with the Russian laundry service?

Joey doesn’t like it when the guy doesn’t put his picture up. When Joey asks why the man says that the Russians felt terrible because of Joey’s movie. Joey gives a good answer. He says that Harrison Ford is excellent. “Yes, you’re right,” says the dry cleaner. Mr Ford is one of our best customers and buys many clothes. You don’t help us at all!” “Okay, well, that might be true,” says Joey. But the Russians were terrorists in OK, Air Force One! And evil! He kills a lot of them as well. The Russians feel hurt by that.” The dry cleaner says, “I’ve never seen it before!” We don’t know how many people are going to get this joke. Ilia Volok plays the role of a dry cleaner. Volk is one of the Russian terrorists who are in Air Force One.
