Ross Geller’s T-shirt has a hidden meaning in the Friends episode The One With The Tea Leaves and our minds are blown.
In the season eight installment the character, played by David Schwimmer, wears a grey top with a hand sign covering the chest.
While some of us might not have given the ensemble a second glance, eagle-eyed fans pointed out on Reddit that the gesture is actually a subtle nod to the sitcom’s title and means “friends” in sign language.
‘That’s pretty cool, and something actually new I haven’t heard before about the show,’ wrote one user about the incredible revelation.
The Friends costume designer Debra McGuire took extra special measures when creating Monica Gellar (Courteney Cox), Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) and Ross’s wardrobes.
Exclusively revealing the show’s costume secrets, she told us some amazing stories about what happened behind the scenes.
Talking about Ross’s leather pants in season five, Debra spilled: ‘We had to shoot that a thousand times, he had to do it over and over again.
‘We do scenes multiple times on a sitcom, but we knew when we did that scene that it was going to be complicated with him shimmying in and out.
‘He [David] was a good sport nonetheless because it was extremely difficult.’
Debra also let us in on how Joey managed to put on all of Chandler’s clothes in the episode The One Where No One’s Ready way back in series three.
‘Building that costume was amazing,’ Debra enthused. ‘What we did was, take all these pieces from his iconic wardrobe and cut them so they were flapped and looked like they were layer, upon layer, upon layer.
‘We undid that costume from the back, so he went in through the back and his arms would go in and it was Velcroed with a piece that went over the back so we couldn’t see the Velcro. It was quite an amazing construction job.’
