Friends: 10 Hidden Details You Missed in Chandler and Joey’s Apartment

Joey and Chandler lived in a chaotic apartment with a lot of nonsense surrounding it. Maybe because apartment 4 (or was it 19 ?) was a hot mess of speckled walls, the immovable Rosita, a broken door, and illegally kept pet birds. No wonder Monica and Rachel tricked the boys into giving up their purple-walled sanctuary.

It also appears that Chandler and Joey’s toilet changes its position with the changing episodes.

And the gang didn’t seem to have a problem spying on the guy who lived right across the street from them in an apartment slightly below theirs.
