Are you a fan of F.R.I.E.N.D.S? Yes? Then here are some facts that even the most ardent F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan may not have known before.
1) In season one, Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer had a great crush on one other.
In an interview, David Schwimmer explained that at some point we were both crushing hard on each other, but it was like two ships passing because one of us was always in a relationship. We never crossed that boundary. We respected that.
2) Courteney Cox's smart method of memorising her lines
Cox would write her lines on the table as a reminder while shooting and sometimes she would have the script placed in the sink too.
3) How Chandler got his name
The sitcom was partially based on Kauffman and Crane's own experiences in New York City with their friendship group, who were all in their twenties trying to work and 'fall in love.' Perry's character got his unusual moniker because one of his friends was named Chandler.
4) How Monica's apartment changed
Some of Monica and Joey's apartment decor changed over the course of the show's ten seasons. Fans might have noticed it. A wooden beam, which was visible in the early seasons of the show but then disappeared, was one of the major changes in Monica's apartment. Observing the set 8n the reunion, which did include the beam, Kudrow and Schwimmer explained that it was removed because it was getting in the way of the camera.
