15 Couples That Hurt Friends (And 5 That Saved It) | ScreenRant
More than any other television show to date, Friends has been . Despite their age difference, Richard having been best friends with Monica's. Monica and Richard (Tom Selleck) discuss their age difference on their first date. His daughter, Michelle, is an old high school friend of Monica's. They realize the great difference in their ages and decide not to pursue a relationship. But when.
Rachel and Joshua Even characters as smooth and confident as Rachel Green have their days where they just make a mess. She finds herself attracted to him and completely humiliates herself time and again going to great lengths to win his affection. The way in which their relationship — scarcely long enough to merit calling it a relationship — reaches its end also highlights the fact that their connection was, in effect, the series buying time and spinning its wheels.
From the very beginning of his arc, Paolo is a walking stereotype, a living and breathing caricature of a lothario. The girls swoon over him. The men hate him. Rachel falls for him. Ross tries to talk her out of it and urges her to come back to her senses.
Dr. Richard Burke
Rachel and Paolo represent one of the many poorly conceived relationships the show only ever used as an obstacle for Ross and Rachel.
They make each other laugh, encourage each other, and help each other to grow through fears of commitment and intimacy. He knows how to indulge her, but bring her back to the real world, too. Chandler and Kathy Some of the most uncomfortable moments of the entire series come when two central characters are at odds with one another due to any kind of reason.
In this case, the fiction that Kathy creates between best pals and roommates Joey and Chandler makes her character instantly infamous. Just as she cheated on Joey to get with Chandler, she cheats on Chandler with her costar in a play, something Chandler himself had long suspected.
A man who is always superficial, judgmental, and self-interested suddenly finds himself dealing with love for one of his good friends, regardless of her current pregnant state.
After Joey views Ross kissing his own ex-girlfriend, he goes after Rachel out of spite — the best foundation for all relationships in television. However, unfortunately for viewers everywhere, it took a handful of episodes late in the series to figure that out. Ross and Emily Some of the relationships on Friends, unfortunately, portray fairly toxic stereotypes and character traits.
The Parts in "Friends" That Make No Sense Now That We Think About It
Ross Is 29 For Three Years Ross initially states that his birthday is in December, but a couple of years later, he is celebrating his birthday on October 18th. While many people may dread leaving their twenties behind, it is not possible to be the same age for three years, nor does it make any sense as to why the writers did this.
Rachel may have been working at Central Perk and offered mate rates to her friends who were there… every day. However, not all their coffee could have been free, nor was Rachel always working to give them a treat or two.
So why was it that we never saw any of the gang pay for their coffee? While a flashback episode showed the pair meeting when they were at teenagers and about to head to their high school dance, they are also meeting for the first time when Rachel happens to bump into Monica after years apart.
How Is Ross Not Broke? Ross was known for being unlucky in love after his three failed marriages and subsequent divorces. How was it, though, that Ross was not broke after all these divorces? After all, lawyers are expensive, but it seems that none of his three divorces wiped out his bank account. We may not know whatever happened to him and Rachel but in our made up minds, we hope they are happily married, and there is no divorce in sight for the loved-up couple.
The social life and nightlife are what keeps the city from never sleeping, after all. Therefore, it would make sense that young adults living in the city would be spending most of their times out in bars and clubs. Not for these friends, however. They were only seen to be in a bar once, during a flashback episode before the bar turned into Central Perk. Minus the fact that Ross and Monica are family, the clan would always spend the holidays with one another.
People were surprisingly invited from time to time when another friend of theirs would appear out of the blue; otherwise, it was the six of them together once again. A good thing they had a chef amongst them, otherwise who knows who would have done all the holiday cooking.Friends - Monica and Richard I love you too - Ross and Rachel about "Animal Sex"
Which Key Is This? With the chain still on, we see four floating heads appear to say sorry. However, in Season Eight, the locks were changed after Rachel moved out and Joey told the superintendent there was a leak, meaning the key should never have worked. With the permanent ink on their faces, the whole point of the episode was how the ink would not come off.
However, at the beginning of Season Six, when they are seen to be having breakfast, there is no sign of any ink, and it had somehow magically disappeared. However, his tear ducts refuse to show any form of emotion and all their work leads to no avail.

The Sudden Change Of Venue Monica may have gone on a whim to put her name down on the waiting list to have her perfect wedding at the museum, but fortunately, there was a cancellation, and the room could be hers.
Better yet, when the museum called to notify Monica of the cancellation, Chandler picked up the phone, panicked at the message, but then this prompted his proposal. However, after all that fuss, the couple did not even get married in the museum and were seen in a completely different venue without any explanation. Forgetful Chandler Chandler forgets quite a lot, and he also somehow forgot the time Monica was fat when they were teenagers.
Could Phoebe Speak French? We could never quite keep up with Phoebe; sometimes she was working as a masseuse, at one time she was homeless and living on the streets, and other times she wrote her own songs and sang for money.
Moreover, Phoebe also claimed to speak French, and after claiming she was fluent, tried to teach Joey the language before his audition. So much so, she decided to hire him as her assistant, even though he had never worked in an office, and had very little experience.
While he may not have known what he was doing job wise, he did share the same feelings for Rachel, and they began dating. The problem with this situation, is that no one saw this as a problem.
10 Reasons Monica And Richard Should Have Stuck Together
We may not have known what Chandler ever did for a living, but one thing we did know, is that he was hilarious. In most episodes of the show, Chandler was sure to crack a joke, and we would be sitting on our couches laughing at every single one. Meanwhile, his friends would stare at him blankly and change to their next topic of conversation. This, we will never understand.
Having been in their twenties at the time, you would think they would have their home or college friends that they would have to spend their time with too. While we can appreciate spending most of your time with your best friends, it is hard to believe that these young adults would only hang out with one another and have no external friends from the group. The beloved pets were always just there, and we thought nothing of it when they appeared on our screens, or when Chandler tried to play hide and seek with them.
Ironically, Rachel working in a coffee shop before moving to fashion, Phoebe testing out different jobs, and Joey being a struggling actor, was more realistic.
We understand Monica loved to cook, but to be able to become the head chef of a restaurant at such a young age, would have meant not spending so much time at Central Perk.
Rachel is first introduced in the show as a runaway bride, having run away from her marriage to Barry Farber.
