The Last One (2)

Aired Thursday 8:00 PM May 06, 2004 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Trivia: No one got Monica's apartment.

    • 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, broke his thumb while trying to punch Joey, and afterwards, got 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 near the end of "The One Where the Monkey Gets Away" from kicking a metal sign post. In short, Ross and Rachel were definitely meant for each other.

    • Trivia: Rachel's bra size is 32C.

    • 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 Rachel attempts to board the plane the first time, the man at the desk looks at her passport upside down.

    • Goof: When Rachel hands over her passport before she gets on the plane to Paris, the picture is clearly of a woman with very dark hair. Since Rachel has never had hair that dark throughout the series and you must renew your passport every 10 years in the United States, this clearly isn't a picture of her.

    • Trivia: The color of the keys laid down at the end of the episode by each friend corresponds to the colored dots between the letters in the Friends title (red, yellow, and blue).

    • Trivia: In this episode Phoebe asked Ross if he had ever chased someone to the airport. Actually, in "The One with the Free Porn" Ross chased Emily to the airport.

    • Continuity: Every time there has been a birth among the friends the entire group was at the hospital waiting. This is seen in "The One with the Birth" with Carol giving birth to Ross's son Ben; Also, in "The One Hundredth" with Phoebe giving birth to her brother's triplets; And in "The One Where Rachel Has a Baby" with Rachel giving birth to Ross's daughter Emma. Now when Monica and Chandler, two of the Friends, are finally having the babies they have been waiting for, not one of their friends even visit.

    • Continuity: In this episode Joey didn't know that when Chandler took Chick and Duck to a farm, it meant they died. But in "The One with the Thumb" he knows that when you take a pet to farm, it means that it has been "put to sleep".

    • Continuity: In "The One Where Rachel Has a Baby (2)" Monica said she wanted to name her first son Daniel. Also, in "The One with the Blind Dates" Monica and Chandler promise to name their first born son Joey. Instead, they name him Jack, after Monica's father.

    • Magna Doodle: A drawing of mountain climbers

    • Goof: At the end of the episode, the friends all lay their apartment keys on the counter. When the camera angle changes, the position of the keys on the kitchen counter changes, although no one moved them.

    • Trivia: Chandler says the final phrase of the show. When the friends decide to get coffee, he ironically says "Where?". Chandler also says the final sentence in the Pilot episode.

    • Factual Error: The jet bridge on Rachel's plane is on the right side. However, jet bridges attach to the left side of the plane, since the forward galley would be on the right side, and passengers would not be boarded through the galley.

    • Continuity: In "The One with Rachel's Going Away Party" Phoebe said that in six months, the statute of limitations would run out and she would be allowed to fly internationally again. If this is true, how would Phoebe have been able to purchase a ticket? Her name would have popped up on a "No Flying" list. (However, it is not revealed to what destination Ross buys tickets for him and Phoebe, so it's possible it was within U.S. borders. In fact it was more than likely since Ross asked for the cheapest tickets available.)

    • Goof: After Rachel gets on the plane, when Ross and Phoebe are hugging, the camera zooms out and the end of the set on the floor is visible.

    • Goof: If Rachel was all packed up, then why is Emma's "E" still hanging on the wall in Rachel's room?

    • Trivia: By the end of the show, all six of the friends have been married at one time or another except for Joey.

    • Phoebe: You can open your eyes now.
      Ross: Are we off the bridge?

      Phoebe: Do you wanna get to Rachel in time?
      Ross: Yes, but I don't wanna die in your cab!
      Phoebe: You should have thought of that before you got in!

    • Rachel: (about her boarding pass) Okay, I can't find it, but I remember that I was in seat 32C... (whispers) because that's my bra size.
      French Gate Attendant: Madame... you must have your boarding pass...
      Rachel: Okay fine! But y'know what? If I was in seat 36D, we wouldn't be having this problem!

    • Ross: (to the ticket agent) Hi, I need a ticket...
      Phoebe: Just one? I drive you all the way down here, and I don't get to see how it works out?
      Ross: Fine, two tickets, I need two tickets!
      Phoebe: We're on our honeymoon.
      Ticket Agent: And the destination?
      Ross: I don't care! Whatever's the cheapest.
      Phoebe: (sweetly) I'm so lucky I married you.

    • Joey: I'm gonna miss these little guys. It was nice having birds around again.
      Chandler: Hey, y'know what? Maybe we should keep them here with you.
      Joey: What?
      Chandler: Yeah, I mean we've got a lot going on right now. And, plus, here they'd have their own room.
      Joey: I could get a goose!
      Chandler: Y'know, I think you're set with the poultry.
      Joey: Thanks man. (to the birds) Did you hear that, you guys? You're gonna get to stay here! (then to Chandler) And, and it's good, y'know... 'cause now you have a reason to come visit.
      Chandler: I think there may be another reason.

    • Ross: Don't go.
      Rachel: What?
      Ross: Please, please stay with me. I am so in love with you. Please, don't go.
      Rachel: Oh, my God.
      Ross: I know, I know. I shouldn't have waited 'till now to say it, but I'm... That was stupid, okay? I'm sorry, but I'm telling you now. I love you. Do not get on this plane.
      Gate Attendant: Miss? Are you boarding the plane?
      Ross: (holding back Rachel) Hey, hey. I know you love me. I know you do.
      Gate Attendant: Miss?
      Rachel: I, I have to get on the plane.
      Ross: No, you don't.
      Rachel: Yes, I do.
      Ross: No, you don't.
      Rachel: They're waiting for me, Ross. I can't do this right now, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. (she boards the plane.)

    • Ross: (hitting buttons on the answering machine) Did she get off the plane? Did she get off the plane?
      Rachel: I got off the plane.
      (Ross looks at Rachel standing in the doorway)
      Ross: You got off the plane. (Ross and Rachel kiss)

    • Rachel: I do love you.
      Ross: I love you too, and I'm never letting you go again.
      Rachel: Okay. 'Cause this is where I wanna be, okay? No more messing around. I don't wanna mess this up again.
      Ross: Me neither, okay? We are, we're done being stupid.
      Rachel: Okay. You and me, alright? This is it.
      Ross: This is it... Unless we're on a break...
      (Rachel gives him a look that says, "Really?")
      Ross: (to himself) Don't make jokes now!

    • Chandler: (to the babies) So look around, you guys. This was your first home. And it was a happy place. Full of love, and laughter. But more important, because of rent control, it was a friggin' steal!

    • 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. What about that summer during college that you lived with grandma, and you tried to make it as a dancer?
      Ross: Do you realise we almost made it ten years without that coming up?

    • Rachel: (crying) Do you guys have to go to the new house right away, or do you have some time?
      Monica: We got some time.
      Rachel: Okay, should we get some coffee?
      Chandler: Sure. Where?

      Rent control limits the amount an owner may charge for an apartment. It was begun in 1943 as a way of dealing with the housing shortage that existed during and following WWII. New York's current rent control program is the longest-running in the United States.
