The 'Friends' cast gets together one last time for an unscripted special episode. From Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer admitting to having major crush on each other to Ross hating his monkey Marcel, here are all the major revelations made on the special episode. 

Ross and Rachel

Although the six cast members of the hit sitcom 'Friends' have been shown having a romantic liaison with each other on the show, they never dated each other off-screen. In a shocking update, we now know that actors Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer majorly crushed on each other during the first season of the show. 

''Yeah, the first season I had a major crush on Jen. Both at some point, we were both crushing hard on each other but it was like two ships passing because one of us was always in a relationship. So we never crossed that boundary, we respected that." David Schwimmer revealed in the reunion episode.


The Last reunion

The 'Friends' cast will never come back onscreen together as part of the famous sitcom's cast.  "Honestly, this will really make me cry, but this will be the last time that we’re ever asked about the show as a group that we will do this," Courtney Cox said. "Like, we’re not going to do this (again) in 15 more years."


Ross hates Marchel

During the reunion special, David Schwimmer left Friends fans heartbroken when it was revealed that he hated Marcel the monkey in real life. 


Courteney's secret trick

During the reunion show, Courteney Cox's secret trick for remembering her lines was revealed. Early on in the show, Matt LeBlanc remembers how Cox wrote her lines for a long speech on the apartment table and how he used to wipe them off after asking her about them and she told him to mind his own business. 

“I had so much of my dialogue in these apples,” joked Cox, looking into the fruit bowl.


Joey's shoulder injury

Remember the episode when Joey and Chandler had a huge fight for a chair instead of getting ready to attend Ross's function?

The episode gave us a lot of laughs but unfortunately, the excruciating moment ends up with LeBlanc dislocating his shoulder in real in the middle of filming the episode.

Matt said, "I jumped over the coffee table and I somehow tripped. And my legs went up in the air and my shoulder came out of the socket."


Lisa Kudrow can't watch 'Friends'

During the special episode, Lisa Kudrow who played everyone's favourite Phoebe Buffey revealed that she avoids watching the show as she finds seeing herself on-screen ‘traumatising”. 

“There are seasons I’ve never seen. Michel (Stern, Lisa Kudrow’s husband) and I started watching some of season four, which I thought I had watched. He enjoys them more than I do because I’m mortified with myself.” she said.
