Fans still talk about the classic storylines from Friends, one of the most famous sitcoms ever. People were interested in the groundbreaking show’s stories about falling in love, dealing with heartbreak, and honest friendship. Friends became a cultural phenomenon, and each episode often ended on a cliffhanger that kept people talking for months.
But not every storyline in the show was told perfectly. Storylines and characters were often dropped without a conclusion, and the actors repeatedly protested storylines they thought wouldn’t work for their characters and got them changed. The authors would develop an idea for a story but then quickly drop it.
The move to Minnesota
The series is a synonym for New York and the places around it. The six best friends lived in New York City together. But the writers thought about making a significant change for season 5 and moving the show to Minnesota. Chandler would get a new job there, and his friends would move there with him.
Phoebe & Her Father
It was essential to Phoebe’s story for the first few seasons that she met her father. She starts looking for him immediately, but she runs into many problems. Phoebe finds out at one point that her grandmother lied to her about who her father was.
Money Sets Them Apart.
In the second season’s episode, “The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant,” the six friends get into a fight that makes them stop being friends. Joey, Rachel, and Phoebe all say they don’t make as much money as the other three. In the end, they run into Ross, Chandler, and Monica, which causes a fight.
Gunther and Rachel move in together.
Gunther was the manager at Central Perk for a few years and had a massive crush on Rachel. Rachel did work for a while at Central Perk. After that, she spent most of her time with her friends at the coffee shop. At one point, Rachel needed a place to live, so Gunther gave her his house.
The Guy in Phoebe’s Submarine
In the season second episode “The One With the Chicken Pox,” Ryan, the submarine guy who Phoebe likes and who she likes, too, went to see her. Phoebe says that because Ryan is in the navy, he only sees her once every two years.
Rachel’s and Chandler’s Love Story
Rachel and Ross will be remembered as one of the most exciting couples in TV history. But the show’s creators thought about giving Rachel a new love interest in Chandler. Rachel dreams about Chandler in the season 3 episode “The One With the Flashback,” which is called “The One With the Flashback.” At the time, she had second thoughts about marrying Barry.
Elizabeth Gives Birth:
Throughout the series, Ross had several relationships that stood out. In season 6, Ross started going out with Elizabeth, who was much younger than him. The two people soon stopped getting along. Ross and Elizabeth break up because they are too old for each other, and she hits him with a water balloon.
Monica and Chandler are arrested by airport security.
The season eight episode, “The One Where Rachel Tells,” Chandler and Monica get ready to go on their honeymoon. They end up competing with another newly couple at the airport. But that wasn’t how the attack was supposed to go initially.
Ben, Ross’s son, was an essential part of the show for the first few seasons. Ross’s stories were often about his son or him and his ex-wife, Carol, having a child. But Ben suddenly stops showing up in the show. Ben doesn’t attend Ross’s wedding in London, nor does he ever meet his sister Emma.
How Rachel and Joey Got Together
In the series, many love stories will stay with you. Joey and Rachel, on the other hand, are not like that. During season 8, Joey starts to feel very strongly about Rachel. Rachel turns him down, but she likes him in the long run. In season 10, they finally begin dating, but it doesn’t last long.
