Do you remember these milestone moments in 'Friends'?
Friends was one of the sitcoms that defined the 90s. For ten seasons, we watched our six 20-going-on-30 somethings mature from silly young adults to grown people getting ready to start families and change careers. In 2004, our Friends had finally moved onto other phases in their lives, and we moved on to newer sitcoms. But we still hold a soft spot in our heart for Ross, Rachel, Monica, Joey, Phoebe, and Chandler. We don’t have such a soft spot for some of the situations they got into though because they’ve become outdated, illegal, or faux pas now. These cringe-worthy Friends moments won’t bring back fond memories.
Phoebe Gets Groped
Rachel was dating a horny Italian man who wasn’t just content with her. Paolo has his eye on Phoebe and requests a massage from her, which is her legitimate job. But he reveals his naked body to her before groping her bottom with both hands.
Today, catcalling is under fire as sexist harassment. So in 2016, Phoebe would probably be calling the police. But back in the early 90s, Phoebe was just worried that Rachel would be mad at her.
Ross Desires His Cousin
Sure, Denise Richards was hot when she played Ross and Monica’s cousin Cassie, but did they really have to write in a gag where Ross was sexually attracted to her complete with porno music? That’s some kissing cousin stuff.
Danny Devito the Stripper
Friends had many guests stars, like Denise Richards. They once employed Danny Devito for a special role, but it was one that no one ever really wanted to see. They cast Danny as a stripper who was asked to perform at Phoebe’s bachelorette party, but because of his advanced age and short stature, they just made fun of him. Which led him to cry.
