Friends: 15 Plot Holes You Never Noticed
The NBC sitcom Friends is recognized as one of the greatest shows of all time. The show was on the air for a decade from 1994 to 2004, raking up 10 seasons and a huge fan following. Many of this shows most loyal fans have seen episodes and even entire seasons dozens of times. However, when taking a closer look at each episode, there are a few inconsistencies that occur over time within the plot and among the characters that even the most dedicated fans probably wouldn’t notice. Some of these plot holes are surprisingly pretty big! Here’s a list of the 15 biggest plot holes in Friends:
15. Rachel Forgets Chandler
When Rachel makes her famous entrance back in the pilot episode of season one, she’s introduced to the whole gang. But, when Monica goes around she introduces them all, except for her brother, who she already knows from her high school days as Monica’s best friend. What is odd is that Monica introduces Chandler as a stranger, but we later find out in flashback episodes that Rachel met Chandler on more than one occasion. There were the multiple Thanksgiving episodes at Monica and Ross’ parents house, plus at a college party in a flash back Rachel and Chandler even made out! How could she not recognize him!
14. Judy’s Mom
In season 10, during the episode “The One With the Cake, “Ross and Monica’s mom, Judy, said that her parents died when they were really young, but back in season 1 there’s an entire episode called “The One Where Nana Dies Twice” dedicated to their Nana (Judy’s mom) passing away.
