  • Phoebe: Hey, do you realize that at one time or another we all lived in this apartment? Monica: Oh, yeah, that's true. Ross: Uh, I haven't. Monica: Wait a minute.

Trivia (23)

  • Trivia: Throughout the series, the most accident-prone of all the "Friends" proved to be Ross and Rachel. Except for Joey's arm-in-a-sling period (to cover up a real injury to Matt LeBlanc) the others don't seem to get injured the way Ross and Rachel do. Ross, for example, got his nose broken from an errant hockey puck, banged his head on a laundromat dryer door, fell into an open grave and injured his back, burned his hands on five separate occasions, caught his fingers in a folding stroller, got beaten up mercilessly while playing Rugby, got kicked in the head when Rachel was giving birth, and broke his thumb while trying to punch Joey, and afterwards, gets punched by Joey--twice!. Then there's Rachel, who fell down and cut her head when meeting Ross at the airport, got a fat lip on two separate occasions, once from a woman at the airport and once while doing a cheer-leading routine to impress Joshua, had her rib cracked when Monica fell on her wearing roller skates and sprained her ankle falling from the balcony while taking down Christmas lights. Both of them were limping by the end of "The One Where the Monkey Gets Away" from kicking a metal sign post. In short, Ross and Rachel were definitely made for each other. 

  • Rachel's bra size is 32C.

  • In the first season, Rachel is pressured by her friends to cut up all her credit cards given to her by her Dad. In a very quick take, all the credit cards are shown lying on the table, one is actually a Library Card.

  • Goof: When chasing Rachel to the airport in Phoebe's cab, Ross tries to toss a coin into the toll bucket and it bounces off the window. However Phoebe begins to drive forward, even though they never actually paid the toll.

  • Trivia: It is revealed that at one time or another all of the friends have lived in Monica's Grandmother's apartment. The same is also true of Joey's apartment.

  • Trivia: All of the children born on this show (excluding the triplets) are related. Jack and Erika (Chandler and Monica's children) are brother and sister, as are their cousins Ben and Emma. Possibly due to the fact that Ben and Emma have a different mother, they are never seen together at any time throughout the series.

  • Continuity: In this episode, Joey and Chandler are unable to get Chick Jr. and Duck Jr. out of the foosball table because it is all glued together. However, in "The One With The Embryos," when they are moving their stuff into Monica and Rachel's apartment, Chandler moves the top part of the Foosball table separately.

  • Goof: When the doctor offers Monica and Chandler the chance to cut their first child's umbilical cord, the navel of the baby can be seen briefly on screen, revealing that the cord had already been removed.

  • Mike: (About babies) I want one Phoebe: Oh yeah? Tell me which one. I'll try slip it in my coat. Mike: Seriously, I mean, wanna make one of those? Phoebe: One? How about a whole bunch! Mike: Really? Phoebe: Yeah, we can teach them to sing and we could be like the von Trapp family! Only without the Nazis. Although that sounds kind of dull. Phoebe is referring to the Academy-Award winning musical The Sound of Music. In the musical, the von Trapp family, led by their governess, learn to make beautiful music together during the Nazi reign of World War II. The movie stars Julie Andrews with music by Rodgers & Hammerstein.
