    I think it was good that there wasn't too much building up to Phoebe's wedding. There has been so many weddings over the series and so many episodes related to that that I'm not sure whether it would've been very interesting anymore.

    Anyway, also I find that Rachel/Chandler relationship annoying.

    For some reason the fact that Joey clearly wears underwear in TOW Al Pacino's Butt (you can see it on the shadow) annoys me every time I watch that episode. I don't know why, I don't even normally get annoyed with small mistakes like that easily.

    There has been also some other, mainly continuity stuff, which has bothered me but I only tend to remember them when watching.

    The way that Phoebe's boyfriends just seemed to dissapear of the face off the earth!

    E.G: At the end of season 7 she was going with a man named Jake for like 3 or 4 episodes and after Chandler and Monica's wedding, he wasn't there! And the one at the end of season 8 in the hospital with the broken leg.

    Oh! And how they made Barry have two surnames: FINKLE and FARBER. Surely the writers should have known about this!

    Wow you guys have mentioned some good ones. I always thought Friends was low on continuity errors compared to other shows, but looking through this and realizing these things I think they have more! haha

    Chandler gaining weight in like mid season 7ish and his tan! It really annoyed me, 'cause I thought of Chandler being a hottie, but that tan and weight thingy bothered me. More of the tan. In TOW Ross's Tan. At the end when Chandler tells Ross that he got a tan too and just wanted to take Ross's picture. I was thinking when Ross said "You didn't get a tan" ..OMG yes he did!!! It was more of the tan that bothered me more than anything..Plus no one ever mentioned it...

    So Matthew Perry isnt allowed to gain weight or get a tan like everyone else? Interesting.

    Matthew was addicted to painkillers at the time of when he was skinny (s7) and then kicked it when he gained more weight (s. Did you ever see how Anna Nicole Smith was fluctuating her weight all the time? She was addicted to more drugs Im sure than you can shake a stick at, had nothing to do with Trimspa no matter how they wanted to take credit for it. Im sure whatever it was he went through when he needed those was very hard for him and thats why no one mentioned it, because it was because of Matthews doing, since he is a person too, and not Chandlers doing.. so why mention it? No one mentioned when Jennifer died her hair red in season 3 (which was for a movie) so... I dont get why this is an issue really.

    I clearly haven't watched enough 'Friends' as I've never even noticed that. But of course now when I know it's there, it's so going to bother me

    Actually its not red, its more of a really dark brown which I think is one of Rachel's best hairstyles. I never really like "The Rachel". I mean after two seasons straight...

    Anywhoo umm, what bothers me is when Ross always says: It really was when he is agreeing with something. He said it way to much!

    I believe it was 'Picture Perfect' unless she did 2. And I have dark brown hair, and Jennifers had alot more of a red hue than mine does too.

    Well, the thing that has always bothered me was how come Phoebe lived on the street as an underage girl? Wasn't she supposed to go to the orphanage or be adopted or sth?

    A lot of things, really, even though I totally love Friends. The Rachel/Chandler part for example is really messed up. And I also think it's weird Rachel always goes to Monica's house for Thanksgiving, why is she never with her own family? Can't really see her parents liking that.

    And even when they all have jobs they somehow can afford to hang out at Central Perk any time of the day. I know it's somewhat necessary for the show to work, but it still bugs me.

    I know! There is only one episode when this is pointed out, where they talk about why their bosses don't like them and then Joey comments that it's probably because they all hang out at the coffee house 11.30 on a Wednesday (can't remember the name of the episode). But yeah, the series wouldn't work without them all hanging out there.

    It was an episode in Season 6 because I remember Joey in an apron when he said that!
