    Do we know, is Amy older than Rachel or is it vice versa? Sorry if this has been asked before but I cant remember/didnt see it. To me Christina Applegate looks older than Jennifer Aniston plus itd be nice if Rachel was younger since she has a younger sister already (Jill) but I can also see them thinking that Rachel should be the older wiser sister since Amy has come to Rachel a lot with problems and helping her fix her life and what not (plus shes pretty immature). So I didnt know which way to go. And as far as I know it has never stated because I remember back in "TOW 2 Parties" she just said "my sister Jill would be throwing up on the side" and never mentioned Amy. Then you see her talking with Danny in s5 and when he asks if she has a brother, she says "No, I have 2 sisters". And thats pretty much it regarding talking about them or their ages or anything. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    My guess is that Rachel is the oldest, followed by Amy and then Jill. I don't think they ever specified the exact order though, but that's a good question! I'm not sure why I think that, it just seems like Rachel would be the biggest sister, I don't know why. Perhaps that she has seemed to help the other sisters out more.

    It's not just you. I've always thought Rachel was the oldest as well. I don't know why. Amy is a lot less mature than Rachel, but that could have nothing to do with their ages. If I had to guess, I would say Rachel is the oldest.

    I would imagine that they would have the actor record what it is they gotta say beforehand and then they play it at the same time as the actor is making a certain face like they are thinking it. For the most part, the actor is facing the audience, so they can tell by the facial expression and the fact that they arent speaking. Or they record it seperately, without the audience, and use a laugh track. Not sure which but that would be my guess.

    I've also wondered that but i do think that Rachel is the oldest.. it fits more, Amy and Jill seem immature to be the oldest.

    Ya'know, I've always thought that Rachel was the oldest too - but I don't know why. I always assumed it was said some time during the series. But when I checked wikipedia, it says that she is the second of three daughters. (here's a link http://friends.wikia.com/wiki/Rachel ) Does anyone know when this was said? Or is the wikia just assuming as well?

    Didn't she say something like, "Ross is going to marry my little sister" in one of the episodes feauturing Jill? They were both in season 6; one was called "The One with Rachel's Sister," and I think the other one is the episode after that one.

    Okay.... In TOW the birth mother, Erica shows a sonogram picture of her unborn baby to Monica & Chandler. Untill the babies were born, nobudy knew that there are 2(twins). How come the other baby did'nt showup in the sonogram picture???



    When the twins are born the doctor who delivers them says that it was right there in the paperwork that she was going to have twins. Erica was just dingy. She even says how when they were talking about "both heartbeats" she thought it was her and the baby.

    Does anyone know what episode Monica gives Phoebe pills for her headache and Phoebe freaks out over the side effects? She calls them "death capsules". I looked through the episode guide and couldn't find it. I want to showa clip ofit to my students since we are learning about side effects and trade - offs. Thanks

    This is more of a statement along with a question rather than simply a question. Does anyone else find it weird that Phoebe was this homeless teenager who lived on the streets of NY yet later on she lives with her grandmother? I find it hard to believe that her grandmother wouldnt care about her when she was a minor yet would take her in as a 20-30 something year old adult. Her grandmother was supposed to be from her father's side right (since he showed up at the funeral), so do we just assume that her grandmother didnt really know much about Phoebe until she was an adult and maybe Phoebe looked her up and moved in?

    the problem with phoebes character is that the timeline is so screwed up, like she says to her biological mum that when she was 18 her mum had JUST killed herself, however in another episode she says she was 14, she says she never went to highschool yet mentions something about going to it in another episode i think not sure about that one, maybe were supposed to believe that she only lived on the streets for a little while between the period from 18 until her grandmother found her ...

    Very good points. It is very messed up. But then again this is the same show that had Rachel/Chandler "meet" in the Pilot and then later on reveal that they go way back so I guess I shouldnt be surprised lol Thanks!!
