Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

Add time

Trivia: In the series 8 episode where Joey tells Rachel he loves her, the gay waiter in the restaurant is the same as the one in the series 9 episode with Phoebe and Joey's 'evil' plan. His name is Sam Pancake and he has worked in two Friends restaurants.

Trivia: The spare room (Rachel's) in Monica's apartment has a wall right opposite the door, which serves absolutely no purpose except to block the view into the room from the living room. The bedroom set isn't always built, just when needed, so having that wall makes life much easier. It's completely illogical though, as it's too thin to be a supporting wall, and where it is makes getting into the room a pain.

Jon Sandys

Trivia: Across the whole show, Ross and Rachel had sex exactly 300 times. In Season 5, Ross says they had sex 298 times. They only have sex twice after that: when Emma is conceived and in the very last episode.

Trivia: Before the title "Friends" was settled, other titles considered for the show were "Friends Like Us," "Six of One," "Across the Hall" and "Insomnia Cafe."

Trivia: Virtually the only time that any apartment doors are locked is when it is important to the episode. For example, Monica's apartment door is always unlocked, even when they go out or she and Chandler are having sex, but in "The One Where Underdog Gets Away" (series 1), it's locked when there is all the "got the keys?" business. Also, Ross' apartment is never locked, except for in "The One With Phoebe's Birthday Dinner" (series 9), when they lock Emma in, and in "The One With The Engagement Picture" (S7 E4) when Phoebe has the key and unlocks the door, then Ross demands it back.

Trivia: The artwork on the wall behind the couch in the coffee house changes every 6 episodes

Trivia: Phoebe's twin sister "Ursula" actually existed before Phoebe, as a character in another U.S. sitcom, Mad About You. In the first part of "The One With Two Parts," the two characters who come into Central Perk, thinking Phoebe is Ursula, are regular characters from that show.

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?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding.
