Trivia
During the course of the series, all six of the friends change their jobs at least once. However, Chandler is the only one who never involuntarily left his job. Rachel, Monica, Phoebe and Joey were all fired at some point during the series and Ross was required to take a temporary (later permanent) sabbatical from the museum following his divorce from Emily.

Goofs
Rachel's last name is spelled "Green", as seen in "The One with the Cake", on the cake box is written "Green", such as it appears in Warner Bros. website and in the series credits, but in her office door at Ralph Lauren it is erroneously spelled "Greene", as well as on her invitation to Ross and Emily's wedding.

Phoebe's grandmother's taxi, which is meant to be a single vehicle, is portrayed by several cars throughout the show's run, as evidenced by different livery patterns, taxi rates, identification numbers, and features found only on certain years of the Checker A11, such as opposing windshield wipers in Las Vegas (used until 1976) and parallel wipers in every other appearance (1977-82).

Q
What exactly happened to the first chick and duck? It says they died, but does it ever say how?
A
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.
Q
What are the words for Phoebe's song "Smelly Cat"?
A
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/Smelly cat...And if you're looking for the guitar chords, it's just E-A-D-A-E over and over.
Q
What are the all the Friends' middle names, religions and ages?
A
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.Non-practicing Jews celebrate Christmas all the time as an American tradition rather than one of faith, and the Gellers are not "part Jewish". In "TWO the Birth Mother", when Monica has been mistaken for a Minister, Chandler says "And you're Jewish!". Monica nods in agreement. If their Mother is a Jew and their Father is not, they - Ross and Monica - are Jews. The Gellars are non-practicing Jews. There is a bunch of confusion still as to Rachel's religion:"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 (If Rachel's Mother is Jewish, again, she is Jewish)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.
