    21 Fucking Infuriating Things That Happened On The "Friends" Finale

    I can't believe the show ended 13 years ago!

    1. Rachel wears a short-sleeved turtleneck.

    NBC

    Why did we, as a society, ever think this was a good look?

    2. No one tells Monica and Chandler that Erica's carrying twins.

    NBC

    I meannnn, the doctors told Erica she was having twins and she just thought the two heartbeats were hers and the baby's. We know Monica is a micromanager, so I'm not buying that she wouldn't have discovered that small little fact at some point.

    3. This hospital room looks like it's from the 1970s.

    NBC

    WTF are those curtains?

    (But, side note, how perfect was young Anna Faris in the role?!)

    NBC

    4. Ross immediately tells Joey and Phoebe that he had sex with Rachel.

    NBC

    "Hey, I'm not one to kiss and tell. But I'm also not one to have sex and shut up." Ugh, come on Ross.

    5. Rachel says having sex with Ross was "the perfect way to say goodbye."

    NBC

    WTF? Why would having a perfect night with someone you love who is also the father of your child be a "way to say goodbye"? I just don't buy that she ever would have left in the first place.

    6. Meanwhile, no one seems concerned that Rachel is taking Ross' baby out of the country permanently.

    NBC

    When Rachel first gets the job in Paris she says, "I mean, I'll fly back and forth, they'll fly you out... Anything we want." But, I mean. It's his... CHILD. This just seems like an absurd arrangement.

    7. Phoebe makes a sexist joke about Ross' son Ben and it's just like...ugh.

    NBC

    Phoebe: "Yeah, and I have a definite feeling it's gonna be a girl."

    Ross: "Phoebe, you thought Ben was going to be a girl."

    Phoebe: "Have you seen him throw a ball?"

    8. Also, Phoebe's ENTIRE musical thing.

    NBC

    Stop stop stop stop stop.

    9. Joey is confused about what continents are.

    NBC

    "I mean, you've been trying to for so long, maybe now that you're on different continents.. (Looks at Phoebe) Right?" Honestly, Joey got so dumb by the end of the series it was just annoying.

    10. Phoebe's cab is literally parked right in the middle of a busy New York street.

    NBC

    Have you ever tried to find parking in Manhattan???? Spoiler alert: It's impossible.

    11. Also, Phoebe has AN ACTUAL hit and run when she hits an elderly woman on a bike and doesn't stop to see if she's okay.

    NBC

    Ross: "Is the old woman on the bicycle still alive?"

    Phoebe: "Yeah, she jumped right back up!"

    12. Rachel hands over a passport with someone else's photo in it...

    NBC

    I don't know who that is, but it's definitely not Jennifer Aniston.

    NBC

    13. Ross wastes several hundred dollars on two plane tickets that he's not even going to use.

    NBC

    Honestly, it's not like he was NEVER going to see Rachel again, FFS.

    14. He ALSO never bothered to confirm which airport Rachel was flying out of.

    NBC

    After so much *effort* to try and track her down, I really think he would have paid attention.

    15. And THEN we find out Rachel had a cellphone on her this WHOLE TIME.

    NBC

    Even if Ross didn't want to declare his love on the phone, he could have called her up and asked to talk or SOMETHING.

    16. So, let's get this straight: Ross has cellphone access. Rachel has her cellphone. But when Rachel finally calls Ross back, she dials his home phone and leaves a message there instead. WHY?????

    NBC

    I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND.

    17. An entire plane of people freaks out over the "left phalange" without ever once questioning what a phalange is.

    NBC

    Why are all these people such dumbasses?

    18. Monica violently destroys the foosball table without harming the chick or duck AT ALL.

    NBC

    This seems...scientifically impossible.

    19. Ross brings up being on a break...YET AGAIN.

    NBC

    Come on, that is SO Season 3.

    20. Monica and Chandler give up a completely rent-controlled, absurdly spacious apartment in Manhattan.

    NBC

    Like, why didn't Ross keep it in the family???

    21. But the most infuriating thing of all was that the show ended, which meant we had to live the rest of our lives without any new episodes ever again.
