During the course of the series, all six of the friends change their jobs at least once. However, Chandler is the only one who never involuntarily left his job. Rachel, Monica, Phoebe and Joey were all fired at some point during the series and Ross was required to take a temporary (later permanent) sabbatical from the museum following his divorce from Emily.

In the final episodes when Rachel gets ready to leave the country for Paris for her new job she says how she worked for Ralph Lauren for 10 years, but she didn't start that job until 1999 and the show ended in 2004, therefore she couldn't have worked there for 10 years. See more »
What? What? What is it? That she left you? That she likes women? That she left you for another woman that likes women?
A little louder, okay? I think there's a man on the twelfth floor - in a COMA - who didn't hear you.

The credit clips are changed regularly, about twice a season. In TOW London the clips are only those that occur in that episode (Such as Chandler and Monica waking up in bed together, and a pregnant Phoebe eating cereal on her belly) See more »
I've been reading a lot of these comments. Some people don't like the show...claiming it to be unrealistic or that the plot lines get boring.
I didn't discover Friends until a year or two ago (thanks to MY friends) but I ADORE the show in syndication and I hope to own the DVDs. Its damn funny and no one can deny it. Except for stiffs. And whats best about Friends is that its REAL.
Ross and Rachel getting old? How could it? Do relationships get old in real life? No, they're ongoing, sometimes stagnating, sometimes changing. Thats REAL.
This show is about 6 people who love each other like family...which I must say as an 18 year old... is very real. Once you hit your late teens - early twenties...things begin to change. You grow both closer to and further from your biological family, and as you reach more independence, you adopt another family of your own: YOUR FRIENDS.
We may not all sit in coffee shops, but we all LOVE our friends like they were blood. That's what this show is about. Makes you all warm and fuzzy (and sore from laughing) inside. And as a show: FRIENDS will always be a part of MY family.
