F.R.I.E.N.D.S may have ended in 2004 but it remains an essential part of the time when we all grew up. All of us associated with the rag-tag group of people and the shenanigans they were involved in and many of us (read EVERYONE) secretly had one character that we knew deep-down resembled us.

But over the years, we’ve grown older and like so many other things in this world, we’ve begun to see the show through the eyes of logic.

Aaaaannnd it ain’t pretty.

Scroll down to find out how!

1. First off, just the outrageous size of Monica and Rachel’s apartment in Manhattan.

2. The fact that Richard knew Monica when she was a child and still thought it was okay to date her.
