Frequently Asked Questions
The full lyrics are: Smelly cat, smelly cat/ What are they feeding you?/ Smelly cat, smelly cat/ It's not your fault/
They won't take you to the vet/ You're obviously not their favorite pet/ You may not be a bed of roses/ And you're no friend to those with noses/
And if you're looking for the guitar chords, it's just E-A-D-A-E over and over.
In the final episode when Joey buy Monica and Chandler and new baby chick and duck, it is revealed that Joey was told they were sent to a farm when they got old, obviously protecting Joey from the fact that they either died or were put down.
The last time you hear from the Duck is in an early season 7 episode where Joey says the Duck was throwing up all over the place and he did NOT eat Rachel's face cream.
Pretty much, Chandler was saying that Joey was pushing the q-tip past the resistance point, and hitting his brain. If Joey would stop at the resistance, he wouldn't be so stupid. In the UK Q Tips are called Cotton buds.

Rachel's middle name is Karen, and was 24 in the pilot and 34 in the finale (Birthday: May 5, 1970).
Monica's middle initial is E. (she buys "MEG" shares because they form her initials), and was 24 in the pilot and 34 in the finale (Birthday: March 22, 1970). However, in The One With the Ick Factor, Monica stated that she was 26. She also stated that she was 26, in a telephone conversation with her mother, during the very next episode. This was clearly a character error, since Ross's stated age in the pilot episode, was 26.
Phoebe was 27 in the pilot, and 37 in the finale (Birthday: February 16, 1967). Initially she believed she was born in 1968, but her twin sister Ursula revealed that they were born a year earlier. She has a middle name but does not know what it is, as Ursula sold Phoebe's birth certificate to a Swedish woman.
Joey's middle name is Francis and was 26 in the pilot and 36 in the finale. Joey's birth date has always been a mystery. In the episode "The One With Joey's Fridge", Monica says he was 13 in 1981 making his year of birth 1968. This is confirmed in "TOW Monica's Thunder" (season 7, episode 1) Chandler and Rachel remind Joey that he's 31. (Year of Birth: 1968)
Chandler's middle name is Muriel, and was 26 in the pilot and 36 in the finale (Birthday: April 8, 1968)
Ross' middle name is Eustace, and was also 26 in the pilot and 36 in the finale (Birthday: October 18, 1968)
Ross, Monica, and Rachel are all Jewish, but do not seem to practice (Ross did once try to teach his son Ben about the Maccabees). Joey is a non - practicing Roman Catholic. Phoebe alludes to a variety of spiritual views but makes no clear declaration of beliefs. Chandler is apparently non-religious, although he does believe in God.
According to Marta Kauffman, only Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) is Jewish according to halachic law, i.e, her mother is Jewish. Again according to Marta, Monica and Ross's father is Jewish, but their mother isn't. http://www.jewishtelegraph.com/prof_119.html
Certainly the Gellers identify as being Jewish but nonpracticing Jews. Non-practicing Jews celebrate Christmas all the time as an American tradition rather than one of faith.
It is implied that the Greens identify as being Jewish and are nonpracticing Jews, but I do not believe it is ever made explicit.
"The writers on the Friends DVD commentary certainly say they wrote her that way. But the character herself is markedly mum". http://www.jewornotjew.com/profile.jsp?ID=471 (Marta Kauffman said that Rachel's mother is Jewish, and so she is Jewish according to the strictest law.)
In Season 1, "TWO George Stephanopolous" Ross says his birthday was "seven months ago", and he says that today is October 20th, putting his birthday somewhere around March.
Joey and Chandler 90 Bedford St. Apt. 19, New York, NY 10014. (Early episodes: called Apt. 4)
Monica and Rachel live at 90 Bedford St. Apt. 20, New York, NY 10014. (Early episodes: called Apt. 5)
Phoebe lives at 5 Morton St. Apt. 14, New York, NY 10014 ( A later episode shows Phoebe's apartment, as number 16.)
Ross lives in three different apartments over the course of the series, none of which is named. But when Ross first moves into his new apartment, which previously housed "Ugly Naked Guy", his door said 3B. Later episodes had no number identification.
The US DVD Versions include extended episodes and feature scenes that were cut before the series aired on TV.
This is easier to answer than the question, "Which friends do kiss each other?" In "The One with the Truth About London" (episode 7.16), Monica and Joey kiss but only in a fantasy sequence. So the actors kiss, but their characters, Monica and Joey, never "actually" do.
Chandler, Phoebe, Rachel and Ross kiss everyone else at one time or another, although Ross and his sister, Monica, never kiss on screen. Instead, an off-screen, accidental kiss between Ross and Monica is reported in episode 10.11. (It was dark and Ross thought Monica was Rachel.)
All of the men kiss each other. Joey and Chandler in episode 1.24; Ross and Joey in 2.24; and Ross and Chandler in 3.11. The women kiss each other as well. Monica and Rachel in 4.19 and again in 4.23; Phoebe and Monica also in 4.23; and Phoebe and Rachel in 7.20 (which is titled "The One with Rachel's Big Kiss").
