  • Some adult humor and language as well as references to adult situations. Many mild to moderate sex references. References to sexual situations, drugs, and sexual orientation. Some nudity though nothing too graphic and mentions of sexuality in relation to the body.

  • Many passionate kisses between characters.

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • In the first part of the Season 5 finale, Rachel is alone in her and Monica's apartment. Phoebe had earlier told Rachel to walk around naked when she is alone. Rachel does so in a scene which lasts for 2-3 minute. She dances by a window naked. Ross sees this from his apartment across the street. Rachel doesn't realize this and continues dancing. Ross mistakes this for Rachel meaning that she wants to have sex. Ross knocks on the door and Rachel gets dressed. She embarrasses Ross when he realizes she didn't want sex. This becomes a running joke in the episode. This is probably the most explicit nude scene of the entire series, however nothing but side-boob and her bare back is shown.

Violence & Gore

  • In one episode, Chandler and Ross are repeatedly terrorised in the coffee house by two bullies. The pair finally stand up to them and prepare to fight them outside but the fight never takes place after two thieves steal the four guys belongings which leads to them chasing down the thieves and fighting with them instead (this fight takes place offscreen). Ross,Chandler and the two bullies end the episode as friends.
