12 Weird And Random Things We All Totally Missed In 'Friends'

Diply 3 Mar 2017

Honestly, I don't even remember what life was like before Netflix. Now my life is filled with daily marathons of Friends courtesy of the streaming service. It feels like the show never ended and that adventures with the gang will continue on forever. The other great thing about marathoning the show is that you begin to see things that you never noticed before. You actually get to pick out the continuity errors and huge mistakes that the show makes! Don't believe me? Even though you've probably watched the show a million times, here are some things in the background of Friends that you never noticed.

1. The apartment number on Monica's door changed from 5 to 20 over the course of the show.

5. Take a closer look at the balloons hanging from the bunting. Those aren't regular balloons. It looks like Joey and Chandler decided to blow up condoms for Ross's bachelor party.
