DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that Joey and Monica were supposed to be ending up together? Yes, the on-screen characters of Matt LeBlanc and Courtney Cox were originally planned to trade "I do's" in the altar. But as we all know (or maybe those who've already watched), It was Monica Geller was paired with Chandler Bing. According to Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman, Geller wasn't supposed to be together with Bing for long. But when Chandler and Monica first shared an intimate moment, the fans at the studio had a positive response. So should we thank the live studio audience for making things like this happen?
Also, there is another detail that went unnoticeable even to die-hard fans of the show. The number of Monica's apartment changed from "5" to "20". The change took place in the 10th episode of the pilot season. Friends' writers changed it after realizing that the current apartment's number would not indicate a unit on a higher floor. Apparently, Chandler and Joey's place also switched numbers from "4" to "19". These fun facts are some of the reasons why this comedy show became a classic and loved by audiences of all ages around the globe. Aren't you surprised that it has crossed a millennium and lasted for ten good seasons? Or haven't you watched Friends yet? It's not too late though, because there are lots of websites to watch Friends online out there. What is your favorite Friends episode?
