Friends

Trivia: Matthew Perry's wit is so legendary that the scriptwriters have often incorporated his gags into the show.

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.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Trivia: At the end before the gang leaves to get some coffee, there is a shot of Rachel crying and using Ross' arm to hide it. These are real tears that happened during filming and weren't suppose to be in the final shot.

Trivia: There is only one season where Janice never appears even once: the sixth (she does, however, make a pseudo-appearance when her voice pervades the mixed tape Chandler finds for Monica in the episode where they "make" each other Valentine's Day gifts).

Trivia: All the friends have a lot of expensive things in their apartments, but you have only seen them lock their doors twice.

Trivia: James Michael Tyler was just another extra at first, but since he was the only extra who knew how to use the cappuccino machine he got a bigger part as Gunther.

Trivia: The gold frame around the peephole in Monica and Chandler's apartment was originally the frame of a mirror, but was broken before filming began, and it was decided it should be kept anyway.

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.

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: 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.

Season 1 generally

Trivia: Just a nice little factoid to use down the pub. Marcel was removed after this season because the monkey that played him kept throwing monkey poop at the actors.

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."

The One Where Eddie Moves In - S2-E17

Trivia: The director of the "Smelly Cat" music video was credited as A Chase. This may have been referring to Adam Chase, executive producer for most episodes, and writer of that particular episode, among others.

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.

David Cañedo Mesinas

Answer: The painting doesn't have a name, and if it does it is never mentioned in this episode.
