  • TVFan

    And I thought I was the only friend fanatic who remembered the one where Ross and Chandler attempt to reclaim the couch at Central Perk.

  • Watching the last few minutes of Term.: tSCC now. Did anyone else notice the tiny scene near the end that was filmed in Luke’s Diner from Gilmore Girls? The huge windows, half-length curtains, and diagonal-facing entry door were unmistakable. Looks like the area behind the counter has been painted green though.

  • I’m with AllTheWine. Last Christmas I was inspired by Blair’s red tights and bought some for my Christmas outfit. That girl is a fashion icon for better or worse.
