It’s been over 15 years since the last episode of Friends aired, but followers of the show have only recently discovered a MAJOR error in the plot.
In fact, beady-eyed fans were shocked to discover that Rachel Green was pregnant with Emma for OVER a YEAR!
The One When Rachel Is Pregnant For Over A YEAR!
Let us break it down for you and take your minds back to when we first found out Rachel was expecting…
One Reddit user noticed the mishap and shared it on the forum How You Doin.
“In season seven, episode 17, The One With the Cheap Wedding Dress, Monica says she is getting married on May 15th ,” it was noted.
“In season 7 episode 24, The One with Chandler and Monica’s Wedding: Part 2, Joey says the release date for his World War 1 movie is Memorial Day weekend [27 May 2002].”
During Monica’s May wedding Rachel confirms she’s a couple of weeks pregnant.
However, in the episode The One with the Halloween Party, Rachael should be 5 months pregnant but she doesn’t appear to have a baby bump.
The user then adds: “We find out in season 8 episode 22, The One Where Rachel is Late, that the week before his movie premiere is her due date.”
This means that Rachel’s due in May 2002 – exactly a year after Monica and Chandler’s wedding!
The Reddit user concludes: “That would make her pregnant for 12 months.” GASP!
Another fan pointed out that Rachel’s due date doesn’t correlate with the time of year, either.
“When she’s wearing the tank top, her stomach is sticking way out (ie: she’s super pregnant),” said a fan.
“Ross makes a comment about it and she retorts with the fact that it’s 100 degrees outside, which I have a hard time believing unless they are trying to say it’s summer.
“So many continuity errors with Rachel’s pregnancy.”
It took us thing long to notice, so maybe the writers didn’t either. Regardless of the major errors or not, Friends is still one of the best series of all time.
