Their Ever-Changing (Or Not Changing) Ages
From Redditor u/Captain_-H:
In seasons 3, 4 and 5 Ross mentions that he is 29 years old... he must be magic.
From Redditor u/GammonBlaze:
The age in everyone, like Ross being 29 for 3 years or Rachel being the last to turn 30 when Joey was meant to be the youngest in the group.

Does Chandler Like Sports Or Not?
From Redditor u/Peterpotter27:
I’m always annoyed that Chandler loves sports and knows about sports in the earlier seasons, but in later seasons they make it seem like he doesn’t know anything about sports or only pretends to like it. [He literally goes to basketball and hockey games with Joey early on and is seen loving it!]

Rachel Was Pregnant For A Full Year
From Redditor u/beenbamboozled:
During my last rewatch I realized Monica and Chandler got married May 2001. Rachel knew she was pregnant a couple of days before the wedding. Emma was born May 2002. [She was pregnant for a full year… no wonder she was so cranky.]
From a former Redditor:
Rachel's pregnancy lasting way longer than 9 months. If she got pregnant in late April, she would be due late January. Not a year+ later. She's not an elephant!

Phoebe Said She HAD To Live On The Streets When Her Mom Died, But Why Didn't She Just Live With Her Grandmother Like She Did Later On?
From Redditor u/Feisty_and_pathetic:
Why didn't she live with her grandmother when she was younger? [She did still have a step father but he went to jail pretty quickly after her mother committed suicide…] Maybe as her grandmother hated Frank so much she lost touch with her daughter, [but that still doesn't really line up with the interactions we've seen between Phoebe and her grandmother].
From Redditor u/BlueCuzILikeIt:
Phoebe whole past is a plot hole, how did she live in the streets when her grandma was alive? Did her grandma just suddenly stumble on Phoebe eating from the trash and suddenly remember she had a granddaughter?
