The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Question: Can someone please explain the concept of 'Mad Libs'? I'd never heard of this before watching Friends, therefore the scene in which the characters are playing it doesn't mean much to me.

Answer: Mad Libs is a series of game books that require the reader to fill in blanks with words in compliance with descriptions below the blanks (adjective, verb, etc.). The reader then writes the words they chose on a separate sheet of paper, on blanks in certain places in the middle of a story on that page. The point being, that, once the words are filled in, the story usually sounds silly and random. The joke in the episode is that Phoebe used the same word over and over again.

The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break - S3-E15

Question: What exactly is a Shemp? I think that is what Rachel said in this episode when she hung up the phone at work. "There is a Shemp in my office"??

Answer: Rachel is referring to one of the The Three Stooges, which consisted of Moe, Larry, Curly, and also Shemp. Curly Howard, the third Stooge, was later replaced by his real-life brother, who played Shemp. Curly and Shemp played the most unintelligent and bungling member of the trio.

Question: How much do the friends make at their different jobs during the seasons? Could they afford the apartments they're living in?

Answer: Monica's apartment is rent controlled so she has no problem. Chandler has a regular job for most of the time he and Joey live together and it's clear that he pays for most of the apartment and related bills. Phoebe stays in various places where she doesn't have to pay and seems to end up in her grandmother's former apartment which may also be rent controlled (or owned by her grandmother and left to Phoebe). She is the only one whose income vs expenses doesn't really match up, although in later series she starts working at a professional massage parlour which may pay at least half decent money.

The One The Morning After - S3-E16

Question: Is it just me or is Issac's insistance that him and Ross are "the same" and giving him that knowing look a hint that he has also slept with Chloe?

Question: TOW the Proposal. Eventually Chandler asks Monica to marry her. Why does Monica say later on that she asked Chandler? (This is when she gives Phoebe advice about her wanting to get married to Mike).

Answer: Because initially Monica set up the room with all the candles etc to ask Chandler, she got down on one knee and then starting crying saying "there's a reason why girls don't do this" so Chandler knelt down too and they kinda asked each other.

Mistakes

When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?"
