** Ross's GirlOfTheWeek with the filthy apartment is as usual played for laughs. Nowadays--and even then--an apartment that messy wouldn't indicate that someone was merely a slob, it'd be suggestive of hoarding disorder, a serious mental illness that can be a symptom of other mental illnesses such as anxiety or depression.
** Conversely, so would Monica's NeatFreak and ControlFreak tendencies.

** Ross' increasing insecurity and jealousy makes him more and more unsympathetic as his character becomes more and more [[Flanderization flanderized]] throughout the seasons. For example, in the ninth season episode "The One With The Male Nanny", Ross refuses to hire an otherwise perfect nanny just because he's a man, and the viewers are expected to understand why he acts this way. And then there are his romantic endeavors... Whether or not you think they were 'on a break' there's still the matter that Ross had sex with another woman ''mere hours'' after he and Rachel broke up, got back together with Rachel when this woman was ''still in his apartment'', and then tried to stop Rachel from finding any of this out. There was also his treatment of Emily; where he says the wrong name at the alter, and when Emily eventually gives him a second chance she shows up at the airport to find him ''taking Rachel on their honeymoon''.

** Ross can be this when it comes to his romantic endeavors.

* ArcFatigue: Even though the fans generally liked Monica and Chandler as a couple, some of the plot arcs dealing with their relationship made many viewers feel they were being stretched too thin. After the two first hook up, they decide to keep their affair a secret from others. Even after Monica and Chandler realize they're actually in a serious relationship, for some inexplicable reason they still don't want to tell their closest friends about it. This whole arc is stretched over 14 episodes of the fifth season before it's finally resolved. Compared to that, their proposal arc is relatively short, taking only the last four episodes of season 6. But after the proposal, ''the entire seventh season'' is spent dealing with various dramas and shenanigans leading up to the wedding: Who will pay for it? Will it be fancy or modest? Who will be the maid of honor? Will the engagement photo look good? What about Monica's wedding dress? What band will pay at the wedding? Will Chandler's dad be there? Will Chandler get cold feet? And so on...

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Creator/RobinWilliams and illy Crystal's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTmxZ54ICtQ guest appearance]] at the beginning of the episode "TheOneWith the Ultimate Fighting Champion" has no relevance to the plot and is never mentioned again. It wasn't even in the original script, they coincidentally just happened to be in the same building where the show was filmed and the writers asked if they wanted to make a guest appearance.

** Rachel later on, who we're meant to feel sorry for because she keeps losing Ross and has to watch him date other women...except she's the one who broke up with him (and refused to take him back), malevolently manipulates TheUnfairSex and back stabs any woman he tries to move on with.
