* In "TOW the Chicken Pox", Ross dresses up as a [[GoodLookingPrivates naval officer]] as a treat for Rachel. Five years later, his actor would appear as an officer in another [[Series/BandOfBrothers military branch]].

* BaseBreaker: All the main characters fall into this trope, though Chandler downplays this, since most people seem to love him. In many of the cases, the broken bases involve liking the original characters and disliking the later, Flanderized versions, as the disliked traits in question become much more pronounced as time went on.

** Janice is this. Although, being hilarious and annoying at the same time, she's also a BaseBreaker.
** Richard, for being one of the most decent and likable love interests. Like Janice though, he can fall into the BaseBreaker territory, since some people see him as TheScrappy.

* AwardSnub: Poor Courteney Cox is the only Friend to not be nominated for an Emmy, something critics are still scratching their heads about and viewers will complain about a decade later. The writers have also expressed their utter confusion, as they admit Cox provided the energy and rock that kept the rest of the cast together.

** In the second episode of the series, Ross is at work when Carol comes to visit. One of his coworkers, who he's having an argument with, says, "Isn't that your ex-wife?", to which he replies "No it's not". The hilarious part is that [[TheOtherDarrin her actress changes after that episode]], so it really ''isn't''.

** Ross' Aunt Mille for some reason refuses to kiss him anywhere but on the lips, much to his own disgust.
-->'''Ross''': Why?! Why on the lips?!

** Season 1: Chandler offers Monica a FallbackMarriagePact if they're both single when they're forty. Turns out he cashes in on that deal a lot [[{{HappilyMarried}} sooner]]...

** In Season 3 Chandler spends an episode fruitlessly convincing Monica she should date him. She refuses for numerous reasons. (He's not 'mature' enough, puts on weird voices, is 'Chandler' and would always be the guy [[{{ItMakesSenseInContext}} who peed on her]]). They go on to not only date, but fall in love, start a relationship, move in together, get engaged, get ''married'' and raise a family together.

** In Richard's first appearance, Phoebe simply says "James Bond!" because he was wearing a tuxedo. Tom Selleck later appeared as a retired spymaster in ''Film/{{Killers}}'', alongside Ashton Kutcher.

** Joey has a hard time finding a job, but also doesn't work nearly as hard as someone who really wants to make it in the business should. His first big role was actually gotten out of sleeping with the woman responsible for casting, and lost his role for taking credit for the writing when he actually did barely anything. It's hard to see his failing career as something bad happening to him rather than something he caused to himself.
