Friends

Season 8 generally

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

Chosen 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.

The One With The Halloween Party - S8-E6

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

Shadow5

Chosen 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.

The One With The Stain - S8-E7

Question: I was wondering if any of our good Dutch friends would be nice enough to translate the conversation between Ross and Gunther at the coffee house?

Chosen answer: Ross starts with the correct translation for "Thanks for the coffee". Gunther: "Je spreekt Nederlands?" (You speak Dutch?) "Dat is te gek!" (That's great!) "Heb je familie daar?" (Do you have family there?) And "ezel". Literally translated it's a donkey, but we also use for the word jerk or idiot. And finally Gunther says "Jij hebt sex met ezels" (You have sex with donkeys).

Nelleke Rietvink

Season 8 generally

Question: Was Jennifer Aniston actually pregnant whilst Rachel was pregnant in the story? If not, how did they get her to look so 'round'?

Chosen answer: Nope, Jennifer Aniston hasn't got children, it was all prosthetics although it did look really good!

The One With The Baby Shower - S8-E20

Question: When Joey asks the question about triskaidekaphobia Ross jokingly answers "a fear of triscets", what's a triscet, if anything?

Chosen answer: A Triscuit is a cracker that is made of wheat or something. You set them out at cocktail parties with crab cake or something. You understand it a little more when you hear his next line, something about the sharp edges.

The One With The Secret Closet - S8-E14

Question: When the closet is finally opened, revealing how messy it is inside, Chandler says to Monica "I married Fred Sanford". Who?

Jon Sandys

Chosen answer: Fred Sanford was one of two main characters of "Sanford & Son", a TV show from back in the 70s. He was a junk dealer. Those who are British might be interested to know that it was the American version of 'Steptoe and Son'.

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Question: How do you access the easter egg for this episode to see the other story line about Monica and Chandler in the Airport?

JCT05

Chosen answer: If you watch the episode on the dvd, at the end it will come up explaining how the scene was cut due to September 11th. After that quick message the scene plays automatically.

A Demon

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?

Chosen answer: He's imitating Chandler (not brilliantly) who makes noises like that, most often (and most similar to that one) when disgusted by something. When he realises Joey isn't wearing any underwear during "TOW No-one's Ready", for example.

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Question: In episode 'The One With The Videotape' we get to know the story 'how Ross and Rachel got bonus night'. What I wonder is does anyone know the whole 'Western Europe' story or is it (unfortunately) one of those stories that doesn't have ending at all, because there's no need of one?

Chosen answer: There is no ending. The DVD commentary includes the writers saying they never wrote the whole story, only the set up.

The One With The Baby Shower - S8-E20

Question: When Rachel's mother appears in this episode she looks (no disrespect intended) terrible compared to the last time we saw her. What happened to the actress playing this part?

tw_stuart

Chosen answer: After extensive research on the internet, I couldn't find any stories to explain this. It would not be unreasonable to say that Marlo Thomas had not appeared on the show for 6 years - last time we saw her she was 59, and in this episode she is 65. She is an ordinary woman who works hard, and simply looks older.

He's My Brother

The One With The Halloween Party - S8-E6

Question: When Chandler tells Ross to relax because he's looking a little flushed, what's the joke here? I miss some details

tw_stuart

Chosen answer: Ross claims he came to the party as 'Spud-nik (the satellite)' but admits he's really 'doodie'. The flushed (as in toilet) remark is another 'Poo' joke.

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.
