When Courteney Cox was on The Tonight Show she told Jay Leno this story about filming Friends (1994). On set one day, Cox kept reciting a line by Anthony Michael Hall which goes, "Chicks cannot hold their smoke, that's what it is." Matthew Perry thought it was from Weird Science (1985) but Cox was adamant it was from The Breakfast Club (1985). After asking around among sound men, production staff, etc., they couldn't come up with a definitive answer and they began betting on it, starting at $20 then raising the stakes. Perry joked that if he won Cox would have to sleep with him, and if she won he would have to sleep with her. When they heard that Judd Nelson (Hall's cast mate in The Breakfast Club) was filming Suddenly Susan (1996) on a nearby stage, they went over and asked him and found out the quote was indeed from The Breakfast Club. Leno asked Cox what the bet was, to which Cox sneezed and then rang a bell. Perry walked out from backstage with a tissue in his hand. Cox told Leno that Perry was going to be her man slave for five more months. See more »
Even the show's designer has commented on the fact that the Central Perk sign on the window can be read correctly from both inside and outside the coffee shop. But viewers have noticed that the logo is symmetrical and suggest that it isn't unfeasible for the owners to have placed a sign on the inside of the window which completely covers the one on the outside, making it readable from both sides.

Well, I'm sorry if I'm not a middle-aged black woman. And I'm also sorry if sometimes I go to the wrong audition.

At the end of the 2nd part of the episode "The One With Two Parts" the epilogue is totally syncronized in Spanish, a reference to Marcel turning the TV's language into Spanish at the first part of the episode. See more »
'Friends' is simply the best series ever aired. The acting is amazing; after watching a few episodes you stop referring to the actors by their real names altogether, even if they appear in another movie. The characters are addictive, none are completely positive or negative. It would be quite easy to get along with or to be very annoyed by any of them in real life. Yet, all of them together (or even divided in groups) create this amazing chemistry that most people desire and few lucky ones have. The humor is wonderful, no matter what type of humor you like, you will get to a point where you will find at least something absolutely hilarious. There is slapstick, some light humor, some dark humor, some raunchiness, some cheesiness - a little bit of everything. The story is captivating; viewers keep coming back to see what situation fate (being the writers) puts the characters in today. It is truly a television masterpiece.
There are, however, many people who scoff at the mentioning of 'Friends'. My guess is they've never seen or paid attention to the show. It's easy to discard something because "everyone likes it" and be "unique", when in reality the uniqueness is actually bias. Just watch a few episodes with before making any judgements - chances are you'll fall in love with it too. I would have serious doubts about one's sense of humor if I heard that they hated 'Friends'.
