20 F.R.I.E.N.D.S Facts That Every Fan Should Know

20 F.R.I.E.N.D.S Facts That Every Fan Should Know
If you've watched F.R.I.E.N.D.S more than once, you probably noticed that every episode mentions the word 'friends' at LEAST once. But you probably didn't know all the other cool facts about your favourite show. So here are some facts about F.R.I.E.N.D.S that you NEED to know!

1. The show was originally going to be called Insomnia Cafe and then Friends Like Us and Six of One, before eventually being cut to just “F.R.I.E.N.D.S”.

2. Remember that beloved golden frame on Monica's apartment door? The one that over the years has become a F.R.I.E.N.D.S icon? It was originally a mirror! One of the crew members accidentally smashed it while working on the set, but since it still looked pretty good, the crew decided to leave it there.
3. That famous orange sofa at Central Perk? It was found abandoned in the basement of the Warner Bros studio.
4. The love interests were originally supposed to be Monica and Joey, NOT Rachel and Ross or Monica and Chandler! But since the chemistry between Jennifer Anniston and David Schwimmer was too good, the producers decided to make Rachel and Ross the main love interests of the show.

5. And again, Monica and Chandler were only supposed to be a one night thing. But since the live show audience loved the combo, they were written in to become the Mondler that we have come to love and admire!

6. Hey, you remember that hot guy who came on the show as the father of Ross’s girlfriend Elizabeth? That’s Bruce Willis, who had lost a bet with Matthew Perry and appeared in the show as part of the punishment! He donated his fee to charity and appeared for free.

7. Jennifer Aniston is the godmother of Courtney Cox’s daughter.



8. Courtney Cox was originally cast for the role of Rachel! But she persuaded the producers to let her play Monica since she felt she could relate to that character more.

9. And truth be told, Courtney is also a neat freak like Monica and she used to have the tidiest room on the set. She also used to freak out when the others didn’t clean their dressing rooms and cleaned it for them. She would have loved our F.R.I.E.N.D.S planner very much.

10. In an interview, Matt LeBlanc admitted to having had a crush on Jennifer Aniston during the first few seasons of the show. (That’s not so shocking since everyone has a crush on 90’s Jennifer Aniston).
11. The refrigerator in Monica’s apartment was working and was used to store food for the crew members.

12. Except Joey, all the other main characters have lived with Monica. Although in Season 3; Episode 6, The One With The Flashback, it is shown that Joey and Monica might've lived together, not things been different.
13. When Lisa Kudrow first read the script, she thought Chandler was gay.

14. The mismatched chairs that surrounded Monica's kitchen table changed throughout the 10 seasons.

15. In real life, Matthew Perry dated the actress who played Yasmine Bleeth on Baywatch, whom Chandler loved.

16. Ross's second wife, Emily was not supposed to be cut out of the show so early. But the actress got pregnant between seasons 4 and 5 and had to be written out.

17. The big dog in Joey's apartment was actually given to Jennifer Anniston by a friend for getting the part in the show.
18. The series was shot in front of a live audience except for cliffhangers. Every time Tom Selleck who played Monica's boyfriend Richard on the show entered the scene, the audience used to cheer for a long time. So they had to re-film those scenes.
19. When you order two pizzas, it's called a Joey's special.
20. Did any of these make you go OH. MY. GOD. like Janice? Wait till you hear this. Although “OH. MY. GOD.” is Janice’s signature line, she said it only 16 times throughout the seasons. And there are total 1069 OH MY GODs in the show. Rachel has the highest count of 269.
That's all we got, folks. Tell us in the comments which of these F.R.I.E.N.D.S you knew or you didn't and the ones we may have missed. Which of these made you go OH. MY. GOD? Tell us!
