There is an episode of Friends where they are going to go out to dinner for Phoebe's birthday, but she could only get reservations for the night before, which Joey stated was Halloween, making her birthday in that episode November 1st, not Feb. 16th.

Joey's birthday is referenced in The One Where Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister, which takes place sometime soon after Christmas, making it likely that Joey's birthday is January 1967.

Though in Season 1, the One with the Birth, Joey says his age is 25 in the same episode that Monica admits that she is 26!

To add to the answer above:



Chandler's birthday is also vaguely mentioned in another episode (I forget what the name of the episode is but i'm pretty sure it's season 6).

Monica and Chandler have their valentine's day two weeks late (meaning beginning of march), and Monica says "So your birthday is in a month and a half". Meaning that Chandler's birthday is in April yes.

phoebe also states in one episode(can´t remember which one that " I was 18 and my mother had just killed herself"   and in the one with joey´s bag she tells her father that her mother lily is dead for 17 years...

In the first episode of the fourth season (1997) she mentions to Phoebe Sr. that she had the "Past 29 years to try and get to know me" Therefore Phoebe's birthday would be February 16th 1968.

Phoebe is actually a year older than she thinks she is so that would make her birth year 1967, not 68.

Phoebe's birthday cannot be in February because in "The one with Phoebe's Birthday Dinner," Phoebe says that she could not get a reservation for her birthday dinner on her birthday, so she had to get it on Halloween instead.  This would make her birthday be late October or early November.  Obviously, the writers were not consistent about birthdays of the characters throughout the ten seasons, and it's too bad.

Rachel's birthday is May 5th and Ross' is sometime in December as per the episode where Phoebe gets sick and chandler meets Kathy at The Perk.

The answer above seems correct but weren't Chandler and Ross in the same class/ year there fore born in 1967/69

In one episode they go out for pheobes birthday on Halloween which she says is the day before her birthday because she couldn't get reservations on the actual day.

I think this off by 2 years. In the One Where They All Turn 30, Rachel turns 30 in May 2001, right before Chandler and Monica get married. So Monica and Rachel were born in 1971. Also, I thought Ross and Chandler were 1 year older than Rachel and Monica.

In season 3 (filmed in 97) Ross says he's 29.  That would put your whole deduction off by a year.  


Aly wrote at 2012-03-17 20:58:41
I think Phoebe's birth year is off because she has to be only about a year older than Joey, since in the episode where they all turn 30, she says "How would you feel if I told you you were 31?" and Joey replies "See that's not going to happen, because we (God) have a new deal", implying his 30th birthday freak out already passed. That means his birthday is earlier than Phoebes, but she is one year older, not two. I know I'm really late on this but if anyone else in 2012 was curious, just letting you know haha.

In "the one with the cake" (s10e04) Ross makes Emma a video for her 18th birthday. When Joey shows an interest at the mention of 18 year old girls, Ross points out that Joey will be 52 when Emma turns 18. Emma turns 1 at the end of October 2003, so adding 17 years to that means she'll be 18 in 2020. Subtracting 52 years from 2020 tells us that Joey was born in 1968...

Ross also says that his birthday was "7 months ago..." on October 20th 1994 when the guys go to that hockey game.

There's some confusion regarding Phoebe's birthday.

In Season 9, Episode 5 - Phoebe is planning her birthday dinner, which is supposed to be on the same night as Halloween. Though it's stated clearly that her birthday does not fall on Halloween itself, it is somewhere close to that.

So that might make her birthday in the last week of October/first week of November.

Joe says in the episode where Julie appears at the airport, that was is 16 in 1990. (when he got his first suit)

In the first season, there is an episode where the gang is at the hospital because Ross's son is being born. Joey meets Leah Remini's character. When he speaks to her characters' mother on the phone, he mentions that he's 25. This episode is in the same season where Monica mentions her age of being "25 and thirteen months."

Just saying....:)

In the series early on Joey has a birthday party after a Christmas episode so I think Josh's birthday is sometime after Christmas
