Question: Who did the drawings on the etch a sketch that was on Chandler and Joey's door?

Answer: It was actually a Magna-Doodle and the sketches were sometimes done by the various cast members or more often by crew members Greg Bruza or Paul Swain. Other crew members would occasionally contribute over the years, as well.

Question: I heard somewhere that Monica's middle name is 'Elizabeth', is this correct?

Answer: No. Monica's middle name is never revealed other than the middle initial is E.

The One With The Halloween Party - S8-E6

Question: Why does Rachel think Gunther is gay? And why does Gunther like Rachel so much?

Answer: Gunther is rather particular about his appearance, keeping his hair carefully cut and colored, and is always wearing well chosen shirts and ties. This is what is commonly referred today as being "metro-sexual" which a lot of people consider to be gay. Gay men (stereotypically) are particular about how they look, so she just assumes. Also, since he is SO in love with Rachel, he doesn't have other relationships to prove her opinion incorrect because he is always hoping she will be single soon and notice him. Who can say why he is so in love with Rachel. Why does ANYONE love someone else? Infatuation? Her looks? Her personality? We will never know. Love is funny that way.

Question: Just wondering, did any of the Friends actors have a falling out while filming the show?

Answer: Probably the only known conflict among them was when Matthew Perry had issues with prescription drugs and alcohol; the other Friends helped to pressure him into seeking help during the series' run. Other than that, it appears the six had a pretty close relationship. They've apparently not all been together in a long time, but that's largely due to scheduling issues and that some of them are naturally closer to some of the cast than others.

The One With The Cheap Wedding Dress - S7-E17

Question: When Monica is showing Chandler the dress, she tells him that she's booked the Swing Kings, so she got what she wanted. Why didn't she just keep the dress she wanted because she got the band for Chandler?

Answer: The woman who tried to grab Monica's gown at the wedding dress blow-out sale retaliated by booking the Swing Kings for the same day as Monica and Chandler's wedding. She would then only let Monica have the Swing Kings if Monica agreed to give up the wedding dress. Even though the woman's behavior was despicable, Monica honored the agreement to ensure that Chandler would have his favorite band at the reception - if she'd kept the dress after booking the band the other woman could well have retaliated. Monica simply found another wedding dress.

Question: Could someone please explain the red and purple poster in Rachel's bedroom that says 'Excelsior'? I just don't understand it, what's it supposed to be or say? Thanks.

Answer: It's a reproduction of an early 20th-century advertising poster for a French sewing machine brand called, "Excelsior."

Question: Where exactly is Chandler from? I know Joey is from Queens, Phoebe is from Upstate and Ross, Monica and Rachel are all from Long Island - but what about Chandler? Where did he grow up?

Answer: I think the only clue they give is that he is half Scottish!

Question: Why does no one ever sit on the window bench, behind the desk? It seems to be there for no apparent reason, the only person I've ever seen sitting on it was Rachel. Why does no one ever sit on it?

Answer: Unless there is a specific plot reason for someone to sit here, such as when Rachel was moping after her first break-up with Ross (when he made "the list"), it does not serve the overall story well. A character would be sitting far away from where the central action takes place, making it more difficult for them to interact with what is going on. Also, a window bench is not that comfortable to sit on, and the other furniture is far more inviting.

The Last One (1) - S10-E19

Question: Does Rachel get paid quite a lot of money at her job (Ralph Lauren)? She shops at Chanel and Prada, and in the last episode she has a large Louis Vuitton shoulder bag, which I know is quite expensive.

Answer: As an executive at Ralph Lauren, she would be making a good salary, and Louis Vuitton offered her a lucrative deal to work for them. Also, being in the fashion industry, she would likely receive discounts or even free samples of many designer goods.

Question: There have been episodes where Rachel, Monica, Chandler and Ross were all drunk at different times and they all did something stupid. Phoebe has been drunk, but didn't do anything stupid. Has Joey ever been drunk in an episode?

Answer: Nope. Joey is the only friend who has never gotten drunk.

The One With the List - S2-E8

Question: Joey tells Monica and Phoebe that the list was Chandler's idea. So how come no one thinks to tell Rachel this? Ross could've just fessed up and saved himself a lot of trouble. And, furthermore, how come everyone else later tells Rachel that the list was Ross' idea?

Answer: It would hardly have mattered to Rachel who actually suggested writing the list. What did matter was that Ross participated in it and that he gave very unflattering reasons (such as she's spoiled and is just a waitress) about why he should not be with her. As for the others blaming Ross, they apparently feared Rachel's anger and/or felt guilty for being involved.

Season 1 generally

Question: I know when the series first aired on TV I saw a opening sequence where the cast hums the theme song from The Odd Couple, but when I watched my DVDs I never saw it. Am I wrong, or was it edited out for some reason?

Answer: It's Season 1 Episode 12 - The One with the Dozen Lasagnas. If it's not on your DVD, there may have been copyright issues with the song. Broadcast rights and DVD rights are separate deals so music is sometimes switched from TV/theatrical releases and DVD releases.

The One With the List - S2-E8

Question: What is the song on the radio that Ross dedicates to Rachel near the end of the episode 'The One With The List'?

Answer: It's With or Without You by U2.

Season 8 generally

Question: Does any episode of Friends make a reference to the destruction of the World Trade Center towers?

Answer: No, although shortly after the event, there was a "I *heart* NY" seen written on the small message board that hangs on Joey and Chandler's front door. A small tribute, no doubt. Also, during the end-credits of the 2001 Season Eight episode, 'The One After "I Do"' there is a dedication to the people of New York. Joey wears an FDNY shirt as well.

Question: In which episode does Janice say something like, "Your heart calls out to me like a foghorn. Janice! Janice!" I've been trying to find it for ages.

Answer: That would be from season 1, episode 14 "The One With the Candy Hearts". At Central Perk, the precise line Janice says to Chandler is, "You seek me out. Something deep in your soul calls out to me like a foghorn. Jaaanice, Jaaanice. You want me. You need me. You can't live without me. And you know it. You just don't know you know it. See ya!"

Question: What happened to the wooden beam in Monica's apartment? I remember it being there in the first few seasons and in one episode I'm sure Ross ran into it. Can anyone tell me what happened to it? Thanks.

Answer: There was no explanation, but it is common for a TV series to make small changes to the set design in successive seasons. Most likely it was felt that that particular configuration was not working out (for whatever reason), and it was changed.

Question: I remember the first episode of F·R·I·E·N·D·S that I saw was probably the best one, and I would like to know which season and episode number it is. It is one where Ben says "Monka Bang," meaning Monica banged his

The One With The Halloween Party - S8-E6

Question: I don't get Joey at the party. I understand that he's dressed as Chandler with the preppy jumper and jeans but what I don't understand is the 'I'm Chandler blaaaaaargh' or 'I don't sound like that blarrrrrrrrgh' Why is he 'blargh'ing?

Answer: He's imitating Chandler (not brilliantly) who makes noises like that, most often (and most similar to that one) when disgusted by something.

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?"
