The Whole Monica Dating Her Dad's Best Friend with the age gap between Monica and Richard, Phoebe expressed The age difference was the same as the relationship her best friend was in, but that never bothered her. It's been 10 years since the final episode of "Friends" aired. When Monica and Richard first start dating, Richard already has grandchildren. I'm not judging the age gap. All the friends seem to think Monica dating Richard is fine just because . You should watch a different show.
In "The One With The Kips," Monica and her boyfriend go for a romantic getaway weekend but end up fighting the whole time. They want to go for some privacy and to avoid sneaking around, but he becomes fixated on watching a car chase that is on TV. Monica adds to the unhappiness by having them change rooms several times until their room is clean enough to satisfy her. When they return, they continue arguing but eventually reconcile.
Which boyfriend does this happen with?
Richard Chandler 4They don't have sex because Rachel took the last condom. There is one episode in Friends where Monica is told by her boyfriend that he loves her and they want to sleep together afterwards. Rachel wants to have sex too, and she and Monica run to the bathroom at the same time to discover that there is only one more condom. Rachel tries bribing Monica for it, but Monica will not budge. They decide to play Rock Paper Scissors and Rachel wins, meaning that Monica has to return to her boyfriend and say never mind.
Was it Richard or Chandler? Richard Chandler 5He thinks they break up after a small fight. Monica did not have perfect relationships. Her boyfriends were realistic in the sense that they disagreed with her and there were hiccups in the relationships.
One of her boyfriends has a serious fight with Monica and worries that they had broken up because of it. Monica reassures him that they are still together and can work through the problem, and he is very relieved that a fight does not equal giving up on them as a couple.
Which of her boyfriends went through this scare? Richard Chandler 6They break up because he doesn't want kids. Both of Monica's boyfriends are equally plausible for this scenario.
Richard is significantly older than her and already had kids. He even has grandkids. To him, this part of his life is in the past. Chandler is scared of commitment and hesitates to commit to anything, let alone marriage or having children. He struggles to accept that he is in a long-term relationship and knows he has lots to learn.
Which of these two men did Monica break up with for not wanting children? Richard Chandler 7They sleep together because he pays for Monica's overdue movie. There is an episode of Friends in which Monica goes to return a movie she had rented and is told that it is two minutes overdue and therefore more expensive.
She says that she does not have as much money on her as they are asking for, and one of her boyfriends appears with the correct amount and offers to pay the total for her. They hug, and hang out for the rest of the night. Which boyfriend is it? Richard Chandler 8They keep their relationship a secret from their friends.
Monica needed to keep secrets during both of these relationships, but one of them in particular was kept a secret from the gang for as long as possible. One person found out by overhearing the two of them flirting heavily over the phone. Only Joey knew about the relationship from early on, and had to lie about it to the gang by making himself look bad for awhile.
It was very suspicious to everyone. Was it Richard or Chandler that was in hiding? Richard Chandler 9They get together in London. Ross dates a girl named Emily and decides to marry her very quickly. Since Emily is from London, that is where they travel to for the wedding's location. Monica feels very vulnerable while she is there, since her brother is getting married and she does not even have a boyfriend.
She ends up sleeping with either Richard or Chandler and it is the beginning of their long and beautiful relationship. Which of these men does she start a relationship with in London?
Richard Chandler 10He tells Monica he loves her in front of their friends. Monica and her boyfriends both sneak around for a bit before revealing their relationships to people. With one of them, she keeps it a secret as long as possible. When it comes out, he tells Monica he loves her in front of an audience of their friends and then they share a kiss.
The friends find it very heartwarming and sweet, and Monica falls even more in love with him. Who tells Monica he loves her in front of all their friends? Richard Chandler 11He smokes cigars and Monica comes to love the smell. Both Richard and Chandler are smokers. Only one of them, however, is a fan of cigars.Dinner Date
He smokes cigars infrequently, and we are not even really aware of it until one day when Monica is sad. She takes out a cigar, lights it, and simply enjoys the fumes. Her father comes over and says that he didn't know she smokes, and she says that she doesn't, she just likes the smell. We connect it back to one of her boyfriends, but which one? Richard Chandler 12They move in together and kick Rachel out. Monica and her boyfriend decide that it's time they move in together.
They choose to move into Monica's apartment, since it is bigger and nicer. This means that her roommate Rachel is going to have to vacate her room. When Monica breaks the news to Rachel, she doesn't understand at first and thinks that the three of them will live there together.
When she finally understands, she decides to move across the hall. Which boyfriend is at fault for this? Richard Chandler 13They end up in a long conversation about how many men Monica has been with.
One day in the coffee house, Phoebe decides she wants to praise Monica's current boyfriend. She tells him that out of all the many men Monica has been with, he is her favorite. This opens a whole can of worms between them, as he wants to know how many men she has slept with. She avoids the question all night until finally revealing her magic number. He is very accepting of it and it turns out not to be a problem at all. Richard Chandler 14Monica gets upset that he doesn't have anything he's obsessive about.
Monica is a very obsessive person and she knows it. She likes her house to be perfectly clean and has an exact spot for each piece of furniture. When her boyfriend tries to do something nice and makes her bed for her, Monica has to remake it because the bedding is facing the wrong way.
She is embarrassed to tell him this since he doesn't have any of these little obsessive things.
The Parts in “Friends” That Make No Sense Now That We Think About It
He admits that he has a side of the bed that he absolutely must sleep on. Richard Chandler 15Monica gave him sex advice before they got together. A very famous scene from Friends is when Monica explains how to properly satisfy a woman. When a guy comes to her asking for advice, she does not hold back.
She draws a little map of the female anatomy and labels it using numbers. She then says which number to go to one at a time until reaching seven and being very pleased with herself. Even Rachel is a little turned on. Which man does she explain this to before they get together?
Richard Chandler 16They decide to get married in Vegas and then back out. When the gang all goes to Las Vegas, lots of drama happens. Ross draws on Rachel's face and they get married, Joey finds his identical hand twin, and Monica fights with her boyfriend. When the two of them finally make up, they gamble and win a lot.
The Parts in "Friends" That Make No Sense Now That We Think About It
He would sometimes get roles on Day of Our Lives, and she worked as the occasional masseuse, but how did Phoebe and Joey get by in life when they were never in a full-time job?
They lived in one of the most expensive cities in the country, yet they are never seen to be making an annual income over the ten years. At least the other characters were supposedly in full-time jobs, though we hardly saw them ever working either. Were they not concerned about people breaking and entering at any point? It seems not, which allowed the rest of the gang to come and go as they pleased without having to even check if anyone was home.
While you may think this is a clear red flag for Emily to run away, and run fast, she still marries him! Even Phoebe who was listening over the phone could not believe what she was hearing. However, the episode made out that Rachel was the last one to turn 30 out of the group even though Joey was supposedly the youngest in season one.
If the producers had gotten their math right, Rachel then would not have become the youngest in season seven. A while after the mistaken proposal, the two somehow developed feelings for one another at a time when Rachel was not dating. It seems the producers loved a good romantic storyline for Rachel, and some reason they threw Joey into it when there was no one else. Ross Never Saw Ben Ross would often mention his son, Ben, but it seemed as though the loving father never actually saw Ben unless it fitted in with the storyline.
Carol and Susan may have had sole custody of their son, but Ross lived in the same city as them and still never saw Ben. He was also going to let Rachel move across the world to Paris with Emma, and his concern was more that Rachel was leaving town rather than his daughter.
Not only was this completely bizarre, but it worked! Ugly Naked Guy was mentioned from time to time when the friends would look over into his apartment and catch more than they bargained for. However, we should have been more shocked when we thought about the lengths Ross had gone to when trying to get his dream apartment. Rachel Green or Greene? However, for her nameplate at her office in Bloomingdales, she is down as Rachel Greene. We understand how it could have got confusing when different actors would play the same role, but not how the characters name spelling could have just suddenly changed.
Ross Is 29 For Three Years Ross initially states that his birthday is in December, but a couple of years later, he is celebrating his birthday on October 18th. While many people may dread leaving their twenties behind, it is not possible to be the same age for three years, nor does it make any sense as to why the writers did this. Rachel may have been working at Central Perk and offered mate rates to her friends who were there… every day.
However, not all their coffee could have been free, nor was Rachel always working to give them a treat or two.
So why was it that we never saw any of the gang pay for their coffee? While a flashback episode showed the pair meeting when they were at teenagers and about to head to their high school dance, they are also meeting for the first time when Rachel happens to bump into Monica after years apart. How Is Ross Not Broke? Ross was known for being unlucky in love after his three failed marriages and subsequent divorces.
How was it, though, that Ross was not broke after all these divorces? After all, lawyers are expensive, but it seems that none of his three divorces wiped out his bank account. We may not know whatever happened to him and Rachel but in our made up minds, we hope they are happily married, and there is no divorce in sight for the loved-up couple. The social life and nightlife are what keeps the city from never sleeping, after all. Therefore, it would make sense that young adults living in the city would be spending most of their times out in bars and clubs.
Not for these friends, however. They were only seen to be in a bar once, during a flashback episode before the bar turned into Central Perk. Minus the fact that Ross and Monica are family, the clan would always spend the holidays with one another.
People were surprisingly invited from time to time when another friend of theirs would appear out of the blue; otherwise, it was the six of them together once again. A good thing they had a chef amongst them, otherwise who knows who would have done all the holiday cooking.
Which Key Is This? With the chain still on, we see four floating heads appear to say sorry. However, in Season Eight, the locks were changed after Rachel moved out and Joey told the superintendent there was a leak, meaning the key should never have worked.
Did This Happen Between Monica And Richard Or Monica And Chandler?
With the permanent ink on their faces, the whole point of the episode was how the ink would not come off. However, at the beginning of Season Six, when they are seen to be having breakfast, there is no sign of any ink, and it had somehow magically disappeared. However, his tear ducts refuse to show any form of emotion and all their work leads to no avail.
