Barry Farber

Inexplicably renamed from Barry Finkle, as he was called in the pilot episode, he was engaged to Rachel, who left him at the altar at the beginning of the show. She later claims that she was more sexually turned on by a gravy boat than by Barry, and she had realized that he remarkably resembled Mr. Potato Head. He had a minor affair with Rachel later in Season 1, while still engaged to Mindy, Rachel's maid of honour. Barry finally married Mindy in the final episode of Season 2. While he never made another "real" appearance again in the show (his only other appearance was during a fantasy episode), it was revealed that he divorced Mindy in the middle of Season 6 because he had yet another affair. Barry Farber was played by Mitchell Whitfield. Barry was also mentioned in a later season, Rachel's sister tells her, "Oh! Him? Yeah, I remember him.

Paolo

A stereotypical attractive Italian "stallion" downstairs neighbour, Paolo hardly speaks any English. He meets Rachel in "The One With the Blackout." Ross had been trying to ask Rachel out while on the terrace, only to be interrupted by a cat dropping onto his shoulder. Rachel and Phoebe searched the building to find the cat's owner - who turned out to be Paolo. Their relationship starts in the middle of Season 1, lasts about 5 episodes, and consists mostly of what Rachel describes as "raw animal sex." Rachel dumps him when he makes a move on Phoebe while on her massage table, but she gets back together with him for one night in the first episode of Season 2, when she is upset about Ross's new girlfriend Julie. Paolo was played by Cosimo Fusco. The paolo was a papal silver coin, first struck during the 16th century under Pope Paul III and named after him. ... The One with the Blackout is the seventh episode of season one of the television situation comedy Friends. ...


Ross Geller

See Ross & Rachel below. The following is a list of significant others (boyfriends, girlfriends, fiancés, spouses, etc. ...


Ross was friends with Rachel for many years, as he is the older brother of her childhood friend Monica Geller . He was attracted to her throughout high school yet never made a move, even going as far as offering to take her to the prom when her date did not show up. When Rachel learned this in "The One with the Prom Video", she realizes how serious he is about her and they begin dating. Their relationship went very well until Ross became jealous of Rachel's friendship with her co-worker Mark at her job at Bloomingdale's, and also became tired of her never being available. A major fight ensued, ending with Rachel suggesting that they take a break from being together. Ross, believing that they were on the break, slept with Chloe, a girl from the local copy center. When Rachel attempts to reconcile, he hides the fact that he slept with Chloe and agrees to get back together. But when Rachel finds out, they fight again and decide to officially break up. A running joke was initiated throughout the show of this event, since Rachel did not believe that they had actually broken up, while Ross believed that they were, therefore justifying his sleeping with someone else. The One With the Prom Video is the fourteenth episode of season two of the television situation comedy Friends. ... Bloomingdales is a chain of upscale American department stores owned by Federated Department Stores, which is also the parent company of Macys. ...


This fight became a stigma in Ross and Rachel's relationship, and although they got back together a few times, it never lasted. They also got married on one occasion in a drunk state while on vacation in Las Vegas. In fact, they stayed only friends throughout Rachel's pregnancy with Emma (who was conceived during a one-night stand between Ross and Rachel). Ross once validated this to his parents, saying that he didn't want to initiate a relationship for fear that they would break up and fight over Emma's custody. However, when Rachel has to move to Paris for her job, she realizes that she cannot leave Ross and comes back. It is assumed that they get back together, and can even be assumed that they married, from a line in the spin-off show Joey.


Russ

Russ was Rachel's boyfriend for the episode "The One With Russ". He was a periodontist, and once used this to retort Ross in a disagreement ("You're just jealous that I'm a real doctor"), playing on the running joke that Ross has a doctorate in paleontology, but is not licensed to practice medicine. He looks almost exactly like Ross and has almost the same personality. Rachel and Ross have no idea that Russ is like Ross, but all of the other friends see it right away. At one point Phoebe tries to convince Rachel, saying she is dating Ross, but is unsuccessful. Eventually Rachel sees the similarity, is freaked out, and breaks up with him. At the end of the episode, it seems that Russ hooks up with Ross's old girlfriend Julie, but nothing is shown more than them meeting each other. Russ was played by David Schwimmer, though the credits listed him as "Snaro" as a tribute to a friend of Schwimmer's. Schwimmer wore a wig and wear heavy prosthetic make-up to play Russ and use his performance footages to mix in to interact with Schwimmer's primary character, Ross. The One With Ross is the tenth episode of season two of the television situation comedy Friends. ... Periodontics is the study of periodontal disease (also known as gum disease), its effects and treatment. ... Paleontology, palaeontology or palæontology (from Greek: paleo, ancient; ontos, being; and λόγος, logos, knowledge) is the study of prehistoric life forms on Earth through the examination of plant and animal fossils. ...

Josh

He steals from Monica and Rachel, and gives one of Monica's bracelets to Rachel as a gift. Josh is portrayed by former professional rollerblader and photographer Brian Bowen Smith.


Joshua Bergin

Tate Donovan, Jennifer Aniston's real-life boyfriend at the time, played Joshua, a customer of Rachel's in Season 4. They eventually start dating after Rachel flirts with him for at least two weeks, but Rachel scares Joshua away with a casual suggestion that they marry, which slips out because she is jealous about Ross's impending marriage with Emily. When he comes to her apartment to reconcile after she leaves a message on his answering machine that she is only upset about Ross's marriage, he sees her in a wedding dress (which, ironically, she wore to make herself feel better about his reaction to the marriage suggestion), they officially break up. He also had an unnatural fear of farm birds. Tate Donovan (born September 25, 1963) is an American actor. ... Jennifer Aniston (born February 11, 1969) is an Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning American film and television actress, best known for her role as Rachel Green in the hugely popular television sitcom Friends. ...


Danny

Danny, played by George Newbern, was first encountered by Monica and Rachel in the basement of their apartment building while looking for Monica's waffle iron. Danny had just returned from a six month trek in the Andes and had unkempt long hair and a beard and in the dark, the roommates took him for a Yeti and sprayed him with bug bomb before running out. When they are later informed by Joey of his real identity, they go to Danny's apartment to apologize to him, where they find him rude and indifferent. Rachel encounters him later, clean-shaven, and is both simultaneously attracted to him and annoyed at his constant indifference. They grab some pizza at one point but she doesn't hear back from him, causing Rachel to believe they're in some sort of passive-aggressive relationship game making her overanalyze his every word and action (although it's clear to the viewer that Danny is really just as indifferent as he appears.) Eventually, due to Monica's orchestrating, Rachel and Danny do start seeing each other but the relationship is quickly ended when Rachel is bothered by his extremely close (and implicitly incestuous) relationship with his sister. There was some speculation during season five that David Schwimmer was going to leave the series, and there was a rumor that the Danny character would eventually be phased into the group as a replacement for Ross, who would move to England to try to save his marriage with Emily. George Newbern (born December 10, 1964) is an American television and film actor. ...


Paul Stevens

Paul, played by Bruce Willis, is the father of Elizabeth, a student whom Ross was dating at the end of season 6. When Paul isn't pleased with the age difference between his daughter and Ross, Rachel steps in to speak on Ross's behalf and eventually starts dating him. Unhappy with Paul being emotionally closed off, Rachel convinces him to talk about his past. After talking about his childhood, Paul cannot stop crying and an overwhelmed Rachel dumps him. Walter Bruce Willis (born March 19, 1955 in Idar-Oberstein, Germany) is an American actor and singer. ...


Paul famously referred to himself as a "neat guy" and a "love machine", when Rachel and Paul were away, not realizing that Ross was accidentally hiding under the bed. Later in that episode, Ross threatens to tell Rachel, saying, "I too am a neat guy."


Incidentally, one of Ross, Joey and Chandler's favorite films is Die Hard - starring Bruce Willis.

Tag (Eddie Cahill) is an attractive 24-year-old whom Rachel hires as her assistant at Ralph Lauren in Season 7.

At one time Rachel cannot remember his last name when asked by Gavin Mitchell (see below) (Her response was: "He...he didn't have a last name. It was just Tag. You know, like Cher or...Moses"). Tag later tries to get back with Rachel but is soon scared off after learning she is pregnant. He has the same red, Italian-designed sweatshirt as Ross, which Ross had on when Emma was conceived, causing some confusion as to who the father was (Phoebe and the friends believed it to be Tag's until Ross reclaims it).

In "The One with Rachel's Big Kiss", it is revealed that Melissa has never gotten over this, and still thinks about Rachel often, although she attempted to deny it when Rachel revealed that she didn't feel the same way.

The following morning, after having slept with Paul, Monica goes into the kitchen. Joey says the now famous line, "So that wasn't a real date? What the hell do you do on a real date?" At the end of the episode, Monica is seen breaking Paul's watch in revenge, drawing on his own story of breaking his ex-wife's watch in revenge.


Fun Bobby

Fun Bobby (played by Vincent Ventresca) is a cheerful guy with the ability to make everyone else around him happy. He had been Monica's boyfriend before the start of the show and makes his first appearance in the middle of Season 1, when Monica calls him out of desperation on New Year's Eve. He turns out to be depressed about the death of his grandfather and spends the entire evening crying on the sofa. He makes another appearance in Season 2, where Monica discovers that he is fun only because he is constantly under the influence of alcohol. Monica asks Bobby to quit drinking, but finds out that time spent with "Incredibly Un-Fun Bobby" is so incredibly boring that she herself starts drinking in large quantities. Ironically, this causes Bobby to break up with her, saying that he isn't strong enough to be in a co-dependant relationship. In the episode "The One With Phoebe's Husband", it is revealed that a pair of panties on a telephone pole belong to Monica from after she slept with Fun Bobby on the terrace.

Ethan

Ethan (played by Stan Kirsch) makes his only appearance in Season 1. He is a senior in High School, but tells Monica he is in college. She also lies about her age, and tells him she is 22. They go out on two dates, of which we only see one. They talk and Ethan tells Monica he's still a virgin, and they eventually spend the night. Afterwards, Monica admits her real age, and Ethan sees this as the opportunity to admit he is actually in high school. Monica is disgusted by this and ends their relationship on the grounds that it's "icky". The Friends learn of the break up, and Chandler jokes that it's because "he needs a note to get out of gym." That day, they meet and Ethan tells Monica he loves her, but she just can't get past his age. She does, however, say if he were older, she could fall in love with him.

He backs down after realizing that Chandler is prepared to offer her the same thing, and that they are happy together. Though he is unseen throughout the remainder of the series, he is still mentioned often, much to Chandler's chagrin; one prominent example featured Joey and Chandler discovering a apparent sex tape with Monica's name on it in Richard's apartment, but it was quickly revealed that Richard had taped over the 'Monica' segment. Monica also had a brief spell with Richard's son, but that quickly fell apart after she kissed him and it reminded her of Richard.

This changes when he kisses her and the two of them date until the end of the season, when Pete, deciding to become "the Ultimate Fighting Champion," fights opponents significantly stronger and bigger than him and is repeatedly beaten.

He makes a short appearance in Season 7 while on a one-day visit and another appearance in the beginning of Season 9. His second visit is on the same day that Phoebe gives a key to her apartment to Mike Hannigan, who catches them making out. Mike quickly forgives her. After having proved that "positronic distillation of subatomic particles" is impossible, David returns permanently to New York and starts dating Phoebe again at the end of Season 9.

Charlie Wheeler

Notable for being the only major recurring African-American character on the show, Charlie, played by Aisha Tyler, is an extremely attractive palaeontology professor whom Ross is assigned to show around New York towards the end of Season 9. Initially Ross thinks she is too smart as she used to date very intelligent and highly awarded scientists. Despite his efforts, Ross loses Charlie to Joey, with whom she dates until the end of the season. In the final episode of the season, she realizes she has much more in common with Ross and is quite attracted to him, and leaves Joey in favor of Ross. Her relationship with Ross ends a couple of episodes into Season 10, when her old boyfriend, Benjamin Hobart (played by Greg Kinnear), who happens to be administering a grant to Ross, confesses he is still in love with her.

Ross and Rachel

Arguably the central theme of the show, the rocky Ross and Rachel relationship has been a main point of discussion for the show's fans throughout its course.


Ross's crush on Rachel supposedly started when he was in the 9th grade. However, he was largely ignored by Rachel, who later admitted to being aware of his crush. In the first episode of the show, Ross asks Rachel if "it would be all right if [he] asked [her] out sometime, maybe." Rachel doesn't reject the idea, but Ross never actually asks her out during Season 1, mainly because he is always interrupted (usually in comical ways). During Ross's trip to China in the final episode of the season, Chandler accidentally tells Rachel that Ross is in love with her. Admitting to have never looked at him "in that way", Rachel ponders a possible relationship and decides to go for it. She goes to the airport to meet him, and the scene is left as a cliff-hanger at the end of Season 1.


In the first episode of Season 2, Rachel is devastated when Ross returns with Julie (see Julie under Ross Geller above), and grows increasingly jealous. She eventually lets Ross know that she is "over" him while drunk. Having thus found out about Rachel's feelings, he is faced with choosing between her and Julie, and writes a list of pros and cons about both of them with the aid of Chandler and Joey. Although he lists numerous (and some brutally honest) remarks about Rachel, when listing Julie's faults, Ross immediately comes up with "she's not Rachel" which is enough to convince him to dump Julie and go for it. Unfortunately, there is a typo and Julie's side of the list reads "she's not Rachem" (sic).... Rachel sees the list, and not understanding what the typo is supposed to mean, gets angry and refuses to be with Ross. The following is a list of significant others (boyfriends, girlfriends, fiancés, spouses, etc. ...


Rachel repeatedly rejects Ross's attempts at getting together until she sees a home video of her prom night, where Ross decides to step in and take Rachel to her prom after her date doesn't show until the very last minute (Rachel had never been aware of his offer, leaving with her date before he could ask her). Seeing Ross's noble gesture and his subsequent disappointment, Rachel kisses Ross and their relationship begins.


Even though they both nurtured their love toward each other throughout the series, the period between the middle of Season 2 and Season 3 was the only time they were in a true boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. It came to an end as Ross became increasingly jealous of Rachel spending a lot of time at work with a co-worker, Mark, with whom Ross thought she was cheating on him. Ross irritated her by showing up with a picnic basket at her office, and sending her an embarrassing amount of gifts (including a barbershop quartet to sing to her), all in an effort to display that she was his girlfriend and not fair game for Mark. In response to this, Rachel says they needed a break from their relationship, which Ross interprets as a break-up. While drunk at a party a few hours later, Ross calls Rachel to work things out, only to find out Mark had come over (for platonic reasons, which Ross didn't believe.) Wrongfully assuming she was in fact having an affair, he himself cheated on Rachel with "the hot girl from the copy place with the belly-button ring" whilst drunk.


When Rachel stops by his apartment the next morning, apologizing and asking to be his girlfriend again, he attempts to hide his indiscretion... unsuccessfully. Rachel finds from the 'trail' ("The trail from the girl you did it with to the girl you hope never finds out you did it!" according to Joey). Yet Ross never counted on one part of the chain: Gunther. As Rachel confronts him, he uses her own "We were on a break!" statement as an excuse and repeatedly apologizes. Rachel however does not accept his arguments and apologies, saying that she saw Ross as someone "who would never hurt [her]" and ends their relationship.


After not being able to be in the same room together, Ross and Rachel slowly begin to act civil again, and by the end of the season, Rachel decides she is ready for them to get back together. In the final episode of Season 3, and after convincing his current girlfriend Bonnie to shave her head, she tells him she never stopped loving him and leaves him a choice between her and Bonnie. In the first episode of Season 4 it is revealed that Ross chooses Rachel. Rachel writes an 18-page letter (front and back) explaining her feelings and asking Ross to accept full responsibility for their break-up. She wants him to read the letter before they can resume their relationship. Ross falls asleep while reading the letter and accepts her terms, unaware of the responsibility he is accepting. After finishing the letter later and deciding that he finds it unreasonable, they break-up once again in the same episode.


Throughout almost the entire fourth season, Ross and Rachel are a little hostile to each other. This is shown by their bringing home different dates, Rachel making fun of some moments of Ross's past and the absence of many sincerely friendly conversations with each other.


When Ross is about to marry Emily (see Emily under Ross Geller above) in the final episode of Season 4, Rachel realizes that she is still in love with him and flies to London to confess her love to Ross. Changing her mind at the last minute, she simply hugs Ross. However, Ross says Rachel's name instead of Emily's during the wedding, which eventually leads to the collapse of the short-lived marriage. In the second episode of Season 5, Rachel finally tells Ross about her feelings, but they decide to pretend the conversation never happened, since Ross is married. The following is a list of significant others (boyfriends, girlfriends, fiancés, spouses, etc. ...


In the last episode of the season, while visiting Joey in Las Vegas, Ross and Rachel get very drunk and marry. The next day in the first episode of Season 6, they have no recollection of the marriage and even though they woke up in the same bed, decide to assume that nothing happened. After finding out about the events of the previous night, Ross becomes extremely frustrated by the idea of having three divorces, and lies to Rachel about having gotten an annulment. It is also revealed that he still has feelings for Rachel, and offers to have her move in with him after Chandler moves in with Monica, presumably hoping that she will begin to feel the same way about him. When Rachel discovers that they are still married, she fills out the annulment forms herself, stating that Ross is mentally unstable, gay, an intravenous drug user (according to Rachel, the drugs were heroin and crack, the latter of which, Ross points out, isn't even an intravenous drug) and unable to consummate the wedding. When Ross denies the claims to the judge, their case is dismissed and they file for divorce instead. Vegas redirects here. ... Annulment is a legal procedure for declaring a marriage null and void. ... For other uses, see Heroin (disambiguation). ... Look up Crack in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Ross and Rachel almost get back together for a "bonus night" in the first episode of Season 7, but the magic of the moment is lost when Monica accuses Rachel of trying to steal focus (referred to as her "thunder") from her on her engagement night, and it goes no further than a kiss.


In the final episode of Season 7, it is subtly revealed that Rachel is pregnant, and a few episodes into Season 8, she reveals that Ross is the father. The baby was conceived as a result of a faulty condom when they got together for one night in Season 7. A review of the videotape that had captured the event showed that Rachel was the first to come on to Ross, a fact she initially denied. In the final stages of Rachel's pregnancy their doctor recommends sex as a way to speed the labor along. When Rachel is late and unable to bear her discomfort any longer, Ross kisses Rachel, but does not get any further because Rachel's water breaks. In the final episode of Season 8, Rachel has just given birth to their daughter Emma, and Ross is about to ask Rachel if she wants to start their relationship again, when Joey accidentally gives Rachel the impression that he is proposing to her by picking up Ross's mother's ring from the floor while kneeling on one knee.


After finding out about Joey's "proposal" and Rachel's acceptance in the first episode of Season 9, Ross reconsiders his plans of getting back with Rachel and decides to continue living with her, saying that he couldn't risk a breakup with Emma now involved. However, after receiving a call from a man Rachel gave her number to at a bar, he does not pass the message to Rachel, revealing his harbored feelings. After witnessing Rachel's kiss with Gavin later on in the season (see Gavin Mitchell under Rachel Green above), he accuses her of "moving on without telling [him]", and tells her he knows about the man at the bar. Furious at Ross for hiding the message, Rachel decides that their living situation isn't working and moves back in with Joey. Not long after this, Rachel begins a relationship with Joey, which causes Ross an extreme amount of jealousy and discomfort. The relationship, however, is shortlived and ends early in season 10. When Rachel's father is in the hospital after a heart attack during one episode in season 10, Rachel tries to make Ross comfort her (sexually). He refuses, thinking that he would be taking advantage of her. Rachel also admits to Ross that with them "It's Never Off The Table" The following is a list of significant others (boyfriends, girlfriends, fiancés, spouses, etc. ...


When Rachel reveals her intentions to leave for Paris to work for Louis Vuitton at the end of Season 10 and holds individual "good-bye" sessions with all the members of the group except Ross, Ross gets very offended. Rachel tells him it was because he means more to her than everyone else, and he kisses her. After having sex that night, Rachel describes it as "the perfect way to say good-bye", to Ross's great disappointment. Initially attempting to get Rachel to stay by bribing her old boss to offer her job back with a raise, Ross realizes how much she was looking forward to leaving and he tells her to go to Paris. However, in the final episode of the series, he realizes he is still in love with her and goes to the airport to stop her. Overcoming numerous humorous complications in the process, he catches her at the gate, confessing his love and asking her to stay. Unexpectedly, she simply apologizes and gets on the plane. Arriving home a broken man, Ross finds a message on his answering machine from Rachel calling from the airplane, where she reassures him she loves him too and decides to get off the plane. Ross is in dismay as the message ends before it is clear whether Rachel got off the plane, but Rachel walks in the apartment and they embrace. While kissing, they tell each other that they're "not going to be stupid any more", highlighting the fact that most of the reasons they haven't been together were quite superficial. It is implied in the season premiere of 'Joey' that they get married and moved on with Emma.

Throughout the course of the series, Ross and Rachel have had sex 300 or possibly 301 times (Ross kept count at 298 during their initial relationship, and following this they slept together twice, once resulting in Emma's conception and the second time occurring prior to Rachel's departure to Paris.) The possible 301st time (although chronologically, the 299th, if it happened) would be while they were drunk in Vegas, which is is never officially confirmed or denied.

Chandler and Monica

Initial hints at a relationship between the two were given as early as the final episodes of the first season, when Chandler and Monica "hypothetically" discuss their respective parental and marital futures. (Chandler suggests that they get married if neither are married when they're 40, but Monica initially takes it the wrong way and asks why Chandler believes she won't be married by then). Later in Season 3, Chandler repeatedly jokes and asks Monica if she would date him. However, no developments are made until the final episode of Season 4 where Monica, upset after being mistaken for Ross' mother by a drunken guest at Ross's wedding, seeks comfort from Chandler and ends up sleeping with him.


Initially deciding not to continue their relationship, they soon realise they really are attracted to each other and resume, while hiding it from the rest of the group. Throughout Season 5 Joey, Rachel, Phoebe and Ross find out about the relationship (in that order), usually in humorous circumstances. Joey is the first to realize they're dating after putting together various clues only he is aware of. Unfortunately for Joey, he is then sworn to secrecy and has to cover for them several times, even at the expense of his own dignity. Rachel finds out about the relationship after Monica and Chandler are overheard chatting each other up on the phone and Phoebe and Ross separately witness Monica and Chandler having sex from Ross' apartment window.


It is revealed during a Thanksgiving episode in Season 5 that back in 1987, while Chandler was still in college, Chandler had called Monica "fat". Subsequently Monica made a conscious decision to become slim. At the following Thanksgiving, having achieved her miraculous weight loss, Monica attempts to seduce Chandler as a form of revenge. She accidentally drops a knife and cuts off the end one of Chandler's toes. It's also revealed that a joke made by Chandler that same Thanksgiving may have inspired Monica to become a chef. When Chandler hears that he lost the toe as a result of Monica's reaction to his comment, he becomes dismayed with Monica. Monica places a turkey upon her head to cheer him up and Chandler accidentally tells her that he loves her, but then profusely denies it: "I just said 'You're so great' and then I stopped talking!".


In the final episode of Season 5, Chandler and Monica are about to get married in Las Vegas, but decide they are moving too fast after seeing Ross and Rachel coming out drunk from the chapel. Instead, in the first episode of Season 6, Chandler asks to move in with Monica and does so.


Chandler proposes to Monica in the last episode of Season 6 (it is hinted that Chandler may have been planning this since The One Where Ross Meets Elizabeth's Dad), with slight interference from Monica's former love interest Richard. Chandler decides to surprise Monica by pretending that he is not interested in marriage and gets Joey to describe him as "a complex fellow who is unlikely to take a wife". This turns out to be a bad idea, because Richard visits Monica at her restaurant and confesses that he loves her and is willing to marry her and have children with her. Because Monica is looking for a relationship that is "going somewhere", she is left to struggle with the fact that Richard asked her too late and Chandler supposedly does not want to marry her. After she confesses Richard's proposal to Joey, Joey quickly tells Chandler about the imminent situation. Meanwhile, Monica goes to Richard for comfort. Not until she comes back and finds out from Joey that Chandler did actually intend to marry her does she finally feel satisfied. Monica proposes to Chandler in her candle-filled apartment, and their wedding plans are one of the major focuses of Season 7. In Season 7 it is also revealed that when Monica came to Chandler's room in London, she was actually looking to spend the night with Joey. This makes Chandler somewhat uncomfortable, but after some unusually wise words from Joey he approves of Joey marrying them. They get married in the final episode of Season 7. The One Where Ross Meets Elizabeths Dad is the twenty-first episode of season six of the television sitcom Friends. ...


In the last episode of Season 8 and throughout Season 9, they attempt to get pregnant. After failing to do so, they visit a fertility clinic at the end of Season 9, and it is revealed that Chandler's sperm have "low motility" and Monica's uterus is an "inhospitable environment". (As Chandler put it: "It means that my guys won't get off their Barcaloungers, and you have a uterus that is prepared to kill the ones that do"). Interestingly in real life, Courteney Cox Arquette and her husband David Arquette failed to have kids of their own and tried in-vitro fertilization. Cox's infertility was written into the series to explain the reasons of Chandler and Monica's inability to conceive. They decide to adopt a baby instead and they are allocated the child of a teenager from Ohio named Erica (played by Anna Faris) in the middle of Season 10. In the final episode of the series, Erica gives birth to twins, whom Chandler and Monica name Jack (after Monica's father) and Erica (after their biological mother). A Barcalounger is a type of armchair made in the United States of America. ... Courteney Bass Cox Arquette (born Cox on June 15, 1964) is an American actress and former fashion model, best known for her role as Monica Geller in the hugely popular television sitcom Friends. ...

Joey and Rachel

After a mock date in the middle of Season 8, Joey finds himself strongly attracted to Rachel but is reluctant to tell her. When Ross tells Joey that he's OK with it, Joey tells Rachel about his feelings, only to be rejected. After the conversation, his feelings slowly fade away.


After Rachel gives birth to Emma and is back in her hospital room, Joey kneels down on one knee and picks up the engagement ring Ross received from his mother, which had fallen out of Ross' jacket. Rachel mistakenly thinks he is proposing and she says yes. When Ross finds out, he is briefly angry at Joey.


After seeing Joey act out a romantic scene in "Days Of Our Lives" at the end of Season 9, Rachel has a dream where she kisses Joey, which makes her realize she has feelings for him. She decides to kiss him at a party, but is unable to follow her plan because she finds Joey kissing Charlie (see Charlie under Ross Geller). In the final episode of the season, after Charlie leaves Joey in favour of Ross, Rachel confesses her feelings to Joey. Reluctant to start the relationship at first, Joey kisses Rachel after seeing Charlie kiss Ross.


In Season 10, Ross finds out about Joey and Rachel, and though he tries to act as if he is fine, he clearly has issues with their relationship. Though they almost end their relationship because of their concern for Ross, the couple decides to stay together. They soon realize they cannot have sex because their friendship is too strong and causes acts of subconscious-provoked rebellious behaviour, such as Joey's inability to unhook Rachel's bra and Rachel uncontrollably slapping Joey's hand when he touches her thigh. Joey asks Chandler if he had felt awkward with Monica when they first started dating, and when Chandler says it hadn't and felt completely natural, Joey and Rachel realize they're not meant to be together romantically and end it, affectionately reaffirming their (platonic) love for one another.
