Eagle-eyed 'Friends' fans have spotted that one of Ross' t-shirts had a hidden meaning
It's been nearly 15 years since Friends brought its tenth and final season to a close, and we're still watching the re-reuns. Since Netflix landed the very expensive deal to get the hit sitcom on their platform, Friends has been given another burst of life, giving us a perfect choice for those lazy Sundays, letting the autoplay take us through episode after episode.
Despite how much we're watching the show to this day, there are still apparently new things to discover in it. If you want to find out some obscure easter eggs or elaborate fan theories, Reddit is the place to go to, and while they've been offering endless discussions on the recent season of Game of Thrones - they have enough room for talking about a '90s sitcom too.
Watch Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox have a surprise reunion on Ellen:
This latest discovery comes through Reddit, after user 'moodparkour' pointed out that there was a hidden meaning behind one of the t-shirts that Ross wears. The observant fan suggests we look back to the season eight episode 'The One With The Tea Leaves,' (which originally aired in 2002) with particular consideration for Ross' attire in one scene.
It might not be the most glaringly obvious message, but the image of the two hands on the front of his t-shirt does actually mean 'Friends' in sign language.
To make the sign for 'friend', you hold out both index fingers, hooked in a c-shape. Holding one hand facing up, you hook them together, reverse the position and do the same with the hands in opposite positions.
"That's pretty cool, and something actually new I haven't heard before about the show," user 'CLR128' pointed out, while 'mgcg2' asked 'So who's gonna take one for the team and start printing shirts?' But as it turns out, someone already has, as this t-shirt is available for Friends fanatics to buy from Redbubble.
Fans of the show were recently treated to a never-before-seen photo of the Friends cast, courtesy of Monica herself. "The one where the six of us went to Vegas and no one knew we were F.R.I.E.N.D.S yet," Courteney Cox wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of the entire crew before they hit the big time.
The photo was apparently taken as they took a group trip to Las Vegas organised by director James Burrow. They had already started filming the show at this point, but none of the episodes had been seen by the public yet.
Lisa Kudrow, who plays Phoebe in the hit series, commented: "Look at that! Thanks again Jimmy Burrows. Love you Courteney"
I don't know about you guys, but I'm getting a little nostalgic for the show after seeing that throwback photo - and might just throw on a few episodes next time I'm on Netflix. Maybe there are even more easter eggs to find?
