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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
