Friends' Biggest Cliffhanger Came From David Schwimmer Messing Up A Line
We love a Friends cliffhanger.
Will Rachel get off the plane? Whose room did Ross go into? It's all too much to handle.
But hold your horses because it turns out that the show's biggest surprise of all was a total FLUKE.
Remember when Ross said the wrong name at the altar?
"I take thee, Rachel" was never actually conceptualised until writer Greg Malice and creator David Crane watched David Schwimmer mess up a line earlier on in filming.
Speaking on 'The Story Behind', Malice said: "His line was to come in and say, 'Emily, the cab is downstairs waiting,' something like that. And he walked in and said, uh, 'Rachel, the cab is downstai... Oh, BLEEP.' And I remember, I was standing next to David Crane, and I said, 'That's, that's it,"
Just when you thought your fave Friends moment couldn't get anymore spesh, he drops THIS.
It's funny how chance affects these things. There have been many real-life events which changed Friends substantially. Gunther was only Gunther because he was the only extra who knew how to work a coffee machine and Phoebe carrying her brother's triplets was written in because Lisa Kudrow was actually pregnant.
Happy little accidents. The narratives. Not the babies. Obviously.
