Did You Know?


The tiny t-shirt is a reference to the song "Relax" by the band Frankie Goes to Hollywood. See more »


During the argument over the "Relax" t-shirt, Rachel reminds Ross that he hasn't worn the shirt since he was 15. Since Ross' year of birth is 1967, this would mean that he owned the t-shirt in 1982, which is impossible since these shirts were not released until 1984. See more »


Ross: [after Joey enters and exits the apartment singing] I guess he must've gotten the part in that play.
Phoebe Buffay: Oh!
Monica: Oh!
Chandler: Yeah, either that or Gloria Estefan *was* right. Eventually, the rhythm *is* going to get you.
