4. Gunther without a speaking role
Initially, the makers decided that Gunther would be the one lurking around in the Central Perk without any lines. But later they decided to make him a Rachel obsessed lover which the viewers really loved.
5. Financial divide
In the first few seasons, we saw that Joey, Rachel, and Phoebe has financial trouble while the other three were better off. In one episode there was a divide between the group related to financial situations, thankfully the makers decided not to stretch this divide as we loved them together without any troubles and especially financial troubles.
6. Ross and Phoebe getting together
Like Rachel and Chandler, we as viewers also must’ve disliked the idea of Ross and Phoebe getting together. The makers thought this idea to give a shot and make them a real couple but the story did not feel right and so they declined it.
7. Chandler, Joey, and Phoebe as supporting cast
Earlier in the first season, it was decided to make Chandler, Joey and Phoebe supporting characters and that is why they were only seen as friends who visited Monica’s apartment and had no singular storylines. But fans loved them so much that was added into the main leads as they were the funniest of all.
