Kauffman and Crane began developing Friends under the title Insomnia Cafe between November and December 1993.With an ensemble cast starring Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt Le Blanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer, the show revolves around six 20-30 something friends living in Manhattan. They presented the idea to Bright, and together they pitched a seven-page treatment of the show to NBC.Rachel already knows Ross Geller, Monica's brother, as all three went to the same high school and also Chandler Bing as he was Ross's college buddy.
In Season 2, it is revealed they've confided secrets unknown to the rest of the gang, like Chandler having a 'third nipple'.
And since that day, almost every human being has longed for a life where your best friends live across the hall from you and you can afford a giant, beautiful apartment in NYC.
It turns out the real world is nothing like that, but at least we got to pretend it was for 10 seasons.
Chandler and Monica have known each other since they were in their late teens.
They met at Thanksgiving 1987, when Monica was a Senior in high school and Chandler was Ross's freshman College roommate.
