A lot of them involve Ross Geller, TBH.

We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community what plotlines from '90s and '00s TV shows they found fucked up, frustrating, problematic, or just didn't age quite well — and it turned out a lot of those came from Friends. Here are some of the best answers:

1. When Rachel and Joey got together

2. That whole "I Ross take thee Rachel" thing

3. Ross' jealousy over Rachel's friendship with Mark

4. ...and the fact that Ross didn't even remember who he was when he met Mark again later

5. Joey's on and off relationship with money

6. The treatment of Chandler's father

7. All of the fat jokes about Monica

8. When Ross thought Rachel being naked was a flirty way of inviting him over for sex

9. All of the confusion when Rachel thought Joey proposed to her

10. Ross seemingly not really caring about his children

11. When Ross wanted to sleep with his cousin Cassie
