Friends

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Question: In this episode, Chandler and Monica go on a small trip together. They have a fight because Chandler is too obsessed with watching a car-chase on TV and Monica keeps switching rooms. When they come home, they have a conversation in Monica's apartment where Chandler says "I guess it's over now", to which Monica replies "Why, exactly?" Chandler says " Cause we had a fight" and Monica's respond is "That's silly. If you were going to give up every time you had a fight with someone, you'd never be with anyone longer than...OH!" They both seem to realize something here. What is it??

Rebekka Hildre

Chosen answer: They both realise that one of the reasons Chandler hasn't had a long term relationship is because he assumes a fight means the end of things (together with his generally rocky attitude towards relationships!). Monica never realised that's how he thought, and Chandler never realised that was wrong.

Jon Sandys

Answer: I thought they both realised why Ross and Rachel were never together because basically every time they fought, they broke up.

The One With The Cop - S5-E16

Question: What is all that stuff with "Zippowitz" and the "Kid from Silver Spoons" about? Who are those two?

Chosen answer: These are references to the TV show NYPD Blue. Deputy Andy Sipowicz is the name of one of the characters, whilst another character (Deputy Danny Sorenso) is played by Rick Schroder who previously starred in the show Silver Spoons.

The One With Rachel's Inadvertent Kiss - S5-E17

Question: Monica and Rachel pretend to be watching Ross being stupid at his window, but really it is cardboard cut-outs of Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox but they refer to them as Pammy and Yasmin (Baywatch). This sounds funny, but I understand the joke but don't think it's funny cause it's obviously the actresses (Jenn and Courtney) so are they just poking fun?

Chosen answer: They're cardboard cut-outs of two actresses from Joey and Chandler's favourite show, Baywatch, Pamela Anderson and Yasmin Bleeth. Monica and Rachel's heads were just placed over the faces.

The One After Ross Says Rachel - S5-E1

Question: After we come back from the break, with Ross asleep on Monica and Chandler's lap, the riff that plays in the background is really familiar to me. I know I can play it on guitar and the name Robben Ford springs to mind. Has it been in a film before or is it taken from a full length song?

Chosen answer: Ironman by Black Sabbath.

The One In Vegas, Part 2 - S5-E24

Question: When Joey is talking to his 'hand twin' in the bathroom he says "...And you know NASA's gonna want to talk to us." If he does in fact say NASA, then what does he mean? Why would they want 'hand twins'? Thanks.

Chosen answer: It's just one of the nonsensical things Joey says, it's not as if NASA would really want hand twins. He just thinks they might because NASA researches a lot of stuff.

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.

Chosen 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.

Brad

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Question: When they are playing the game I dont even understand half the questions, maybe they are American-based, for example who are Simon and Garfunkel? Any explanations would help.

Chosen answer: Simon and Garfunkel were singers Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon, and they were a folk/rock duo popular in the 1960s and early 1970s. They sang "Bridge over troubled water" and "Mrs. Robinson," but split up due to personal and creative differences. They had since rejoined with a recent tour together. A quick Google search would probably tell you more.

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.
