The One With All The Friends Mistakes/Bloopers

Can You Believe It’s Been 23 Years Since Friends Debuted?!

You know what they say “There’s nothing like a good old trip down nostalgia lane” (Get ready to feel old millennials). Friends debuted 23 years ago on September 22nd, 1994 and we all instantly fell in love with Phoebe, Ross, Rachel, Joey, Chandler and even the occasional Gunther appearance. The romance lasted 10 years as we battled and overcame the emotional rollercoaster of laughter and tearjerker moments (and quite a relationship it was) but when it was all said and done we realized it truly was the end and we weren’t just “on a break”. Although we couldn’t help but hope they would come back for just one more, we understood that all good things must come to an end. In honor of Friends debuting 23 years ago, we’re counting down some of the best mistakes and bloopers you may have never noticed or seen.

The time the hooker in Monica’s apartment got the best of Chandler and Joey.

Chandler and Joey seemed to always be getting themselves into and out of wacky situations but they couldn’t quite hold it together on this one.

When Ross played the bagpipes, and no one could keep their shit together. (Rachel is still laughing in the take they actually aired!)

 

Kudos to the other cast members for keeping such a straight face on this one (we’re with Rachel on this one).

The “Hot Girl” and Joey’s Shirts

You might have missed it if you were distracted by the beauty of “Hot Girl” in this episode, but apparently, Joey Tribianni has the power to magically change shirts. For those of you who missed it Joey counts the floors to of Ross’ building to find out where “Hot Girl” lives while wearing a black zip-up, thinking he found to the correct location he knocks on the door while wearing a dark purple shirt but as soon as Ross answers the door, he’s wearing the black zip up again.

 

 

RACHEL LEAVES BARRY FINKEL AT THE ALTAR. WHO IS THEN REFERRED TO AS BARRY FARBER FOR THE REST OF THE SERIES

 

So let me get this straight, Rachel leaves this guy at the altar and then constantly butchers his name? (give the guy a break)

Monica Seems To Forget Rachel and Chandler Have Met

When Rachel arrives at the coffee shop in the pilot episode, Monica introduces her to everyone, including Chandler…Umm I guess Monica has selective memory when it comes to Chandler?

 

 

WHEN PEOPLE THOUGHT COURTENEY SPELLED IT ‘COURTNEY’

 

Only Friends rookies would believe that.

When Chandler called Joey ‘Matt’ by mistake

When actors spend so much time together they sometimes mix the two worlds, the fictional, and the real.

WHEN BEN COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED WITHOUT A TRACE

 

Ross and Carol’s son Ben is brought up a lot in early seasons of the show, but when the new baby Emma comes along he starts to get pushed out (we’ve heard of sibling rivalry, but jeez!) By Season 8, Episode 12, he’s pretty much like one of Liam Neeson relatives in those Taken movies except no one is looking for him. He is barely mentioned in the 54 remaining episodes, and never even meets his sister Emma!

 

WHEN ROSS HAS NO CLUE HOW OLD HE IS OR WHAT MONTH HE WAS BORN IN

Isn’t Ross a scientist? Specifically a paleontologist, which deals with fossils that are thousands, even millions of years old? So someone please tell me how he doesn’t know his own age? He starts by telling Gunther he was born in December, but when he breaks his hand in another episode, he says his birthday is October 18th.  Get it together Ross!

 

WHEN PHOEBE TELLS MIKE SHE’S NEVER BEEN IN A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP

We all know and came to love Phoebe as wacky yet oblivious one, but even by those standards, you don’t just forget about moving in with that crazy cop guy Gary.

Joey isn’t the only one that has to play more than one part

Estelle from friends

Besides Joey Tribbiani’s role as Dr. Drake Ramoray on Days of our Lives, Joey wasn’t the best at landing jobs. So I can see why Estelle had to put in the extra work delivering babies…after all New York is expensive.

 

Every time Phoebe broke into a hysterical fit of uncontrollable laughter.

 

It just shows how much fun they had while making the show, which only makes us love them so much more!

When Emma caused several scenes in the ninth season to derail.

Emma is a cute baby, so all is forgiven.

The time Chandler finally nailed the line, but Joey screwed it all up

I’m pretty sure this has at least happened to everyone at least once in their lives…well not the acting in the hit TV show Friends part, but the having your friend completely butcher your moment part.

When Rachel, Ross, and Chandler had to “pivot,” but no one could stop laughing.

You’d have to be a pretty cold-hearted person to not laugh at this Friends blooper.

The time Chandler’s “sex face” was too much for Ross to handle.

There are some things in the world you can’t unsee.

When Joey fell during take one, so he was shook during the next three.

What can we say? Besides “this is so Joey”.

The time Ben, a child, checked the hell out of Ross and Rachel for not knowing their lines. 

This might explain Ben’s “sudden disappearance” from the show.

The time Joey tried to trump a game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” with “Fire,” and expletives were thrown.

Fire always wins!

When Monica’s lack of table tennis skills brought out the giggles.

Let’s just say Monica isn’t going to be playing at the U.S. open anytime soon.
