FRIENDS starring Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry ran for 10 long years. That indeed means there were innumerous memories and facts behind the scenes that we would want to know. Well, what we have today is the scoop you surely didn’t know!
We’re talking about Season 3, Episode 2, titled ‘The One Where No One’s Ready.’ The episode revolves around David Schwimmer AKA Ross who’s about to get an award for his work as a palaeontologist. While he wants all his FRIENDS to be there during his special night, all of them including love Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) are unready until the last moment. The entire episode was actually shot in Monica (Courteney Cox) and Rachel’s joint house. Well, that wasn’t a coincidence but a planned move.
Yes, you heard that right. While you witness Joey (Matt LeBlanc) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) going to their common house in turns to get ready, the makers keep the sequences restricted to the hall of Monica & Rachel’s house. Same goes with Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox’s character when they get into their bedrooms to get dressed. There in fact, is a scene where David Schwimmer AKA Ross goes into Rachel’s room to pick a dress for her.
But none of it is visibly shown. The reason behind it all was, because the makers were following a strict budget. So, the entire episode with different sequences was limited to a single hall. We had our 6 FRIENDS following their own plot lines, but in a single room. Now, that we know the reason behind it, kudos to the makers that their direction never made us realise it until we’re reading this!
So that was our FRIENDS’ trivia for the day! Do you enjoy and want more of these? Stick to the space for the next one!
