“In ‘The One with the Prom Video’ episode the video shows Ross and his mustache and Joey says “Lookin’ good, Mr. Kotter!” destinyd40ae92000 found out that it’s a reference to an American sitcom starring Gabe Kaplan Welcome Back, Kotter.

They look exactly the same!

#2 The One with T-shirt

According to Urban Dictionary, “Franky Says Relax” is a “popular phrase on T-shirts around the time Frankie Goes to Hollywood released song relax. This was in reaction to some people calling for the song to be banned.”

#3 The One with the Lobster

“See, he’s her lobster,” – says Phoebe when Rachel and Ross kissed after a long argument. She meant that lobsters supposedly mate for life as in case of Rachel and Ross. This phrase is remembered by all the fans of TV-series.

#4 The One with George Stephanopoulos

The pizza brought by the delivery boy for the girls was meant for George Stephanopoulos, who, in fact, is President Clinton’s gorgeous press secretary.

ashleyb4903c3779 noticed the references and added ” I was watching live coverage of Trump meeting with Kim Jong-Un…. and who was covering the footage? Yep, George Stephanopoulos.”

#5 The One with Bicentennial

When Monica sleeps with the boy who is 10 years younger than she is, she says “I just had sex with someone who wasn’t alive during the Bicentennial.”

Bicentennial is a 200th anniversary of anything. In the case with Monica, she meant the United States Bicentennial, which fell on 1976.

#6 The One with No Underpants

“Going commando” means not wearing any underpants. That’s why no one was surprised that this phrase was related specifically to Joey.

In The Middle, one of the characters confuses this phrase with something military-related.

#7 The One with Dudley Moore

When Monica wants Phoebe to make her haircut look like Demi Moore from Indecent Proposal, but Phoebe misunderstands her and thinks she said Dudley Moore.

The fans learned the difference for all ages.
