20 MONICA PRETENDS TO BE ROSS'S FIANCE
In season 4, Ross and Emily decide to marry on short notice. The wedding is in London but Emily's wedding gown is in New York. Monica's the good sister and picks up the dress for her. There's nothing wrong with that at all. However, Ross thanks her by pretty much kissing her on the lips.
Later, Monica poses as Ross's fiance when picking the dress up. It seems odd that a sister would pretend to be her brother's fiance just to try on a dress. Indeed, she tries on her sister-in-law's wedding dress and keeps it on. To be fair, nothing seems that strange after Ross kisses her on the lips as a thank you.
19 THE FOOTBALL GAME
It's normal for siblings to have a childhood rivalry. In fact, Monica and Ross are very competitive with each other. Ross has always seemed to be his parents favorite. In addition, Monica and Ross have a sick need to always win. It's even worse when it's against each other.
For instance, they famously play a football game on Thanksgiving. As kids, they played until Monica broke Ross's nose. As adults, they still play that intensely. In fact, they both won't let go of the ball even when the rest leave. Late into the night, both refuse to let go. Siblings often feud but these two take it to a whole new level. They want to destroy the other in all situations.
18 MONICA KNOWS THE DATE OF ROSS AND CAROL'S FIRST TIME
Ross and Monica share a lot of intimate details with each other. However, Monica knows way too much about her brother's personal life. For example, Ross has a hard time moving on after his first marriage ends. He had only ever been with Carol. He even remembers the date of their first time, October 20.
Oddly, Monica also knows the date of their first time. That really seems like information she doesn't need to know. This brings up another question. Why and when did Ross tell Monica the date? Hopefully, it wasn't right after. There's a good chance she gave him pointers.
17 THEY SHARE DATING DETAILS
As noted, Monica and Ross share dating details. In fact, they get pretty personal and openly talk about their dating lives. For instance, Ross once pulled a classic prank on Monica. His mother called to talk to her but Ross told her it was then-boyfriend Richard.
In front of Ross, Monica asks Richard a very personal question. Most sisters wouldn't want their brother to know this detail. Most brothers probably don't want to know that either. It doesn't seem to bother Ross and Monica. Of course, Monica's actually talking to her mom. At this point, she starts to feel embarrassment. To be fair, it doesn't really matter. Her brother can tell their mother later.
16 ROSS BULLIES MONICA FOR BEING OVERWEIGHT
There's nothing wrong with Monica and Ross teasing each other. In fact, the entire gang can be mean at times. However, Ross often teased his sister for being overweight in her younger days. In fact, he even teased her after she lost all the weight. He picked on her as kids for her weight.
As adults, he mentions he had to learn to eat fast because of his sister. To be fair, Chandler picks on Monica's weight as well. Indeed, he was much meaner too. Regardless, Ross is her brother and should know better. As adults, he should let the fat jokes go. Instead, he turns it up.
15 THEY STILL WRESTLE AS ADULTS
It's common for siblings to play fight and wrestler as kids. In fact, it can get pretty serious but in the end, it's just kid stuff. However, most kids stop wrestling as adults. In season 8, Rachel starts dating Danny and meets his sister. They can't keep their hands off of each other and Rachel wonders if that's normal.
As it turns out, Monica and Ross would wrestler as kids too. However, this was odd in a different way than Danny and his sister. This was a pretty legit fight. They're highly competitive with each other to a fault. In fact, it's pretty strange they still wrestler as adults and don't mind getting that close to each other.
14 ROSS WALKED IN ON MONICA IN THE SHOWER
In season 3, Monica inherits a fancy dollhouse. Initially, she promises to share with Phoebe but soon that changes. Phoebe ends up making her own dollhouse, which is way cooler. It catches on fire and Ross runs into the washroom to put it out.
It just so happens that his sister is taking a shower at that moment. To be fair, he did try other options first. Regardless, he runs in as she showers and has an intimate moment. In fact, he throws the dollhouse directly into the shower with her. Clearly, they're both feeling awkward at that moment. One has to wonder if Ross could have tried something else. In the end, he had only one place to go.
13 ROSS WATCHED CHANDLER AND MONICA HOOK UP
Ross and Rachel weren't the only love story on the show. In fact, many fans consider Chandler and Monica the best couple. Their romance played out slowly and was a secret for most of the season.

He was across the street checking out an apartment. He had a clear view of Monica and Chandler hooking up. Ross freaks out but steps closer to get a better look.

11 SIT ON EACH OTHER'S LAPS
Ross and Monica take being close to a new level. In season 5, Rachel's in shock to see Danny and his sister being touchy feely. It seems odd she's in a state of shock since Ross and Monica are the same. In fact, they often sit on each other's lap. It's a bit strange since Monica and his girlfriends are the only ones to sit on Ross's lap.
To be fair, Ross sits in his sister's lap all the time as well. At times it seems as if they're flirting. In fact, they even cuddle a few times. It makes sense for them to care but physically it's a bit odd. Fans notice they touch each other a lot.

Only one couple can have protection.
This leads to Rachel and Monica arguing about who should get it. It's a bit awkward that both brother and sister are trying to hook up a few feet away. In addition, only one of them can hook up. That means Monica's fully aware of what's going on in the room next to her.
8 MONICA LISTENS TO ROSS through the wall
Like the rest of the gang, Monica likes to know all the details. When it comes to hooking up they all share openly. In fact, when Ross and Charlie were hooking up the rest of them listened from the next room. Of course, Rachel and Joey were hooking in the other room.

However, Ross is also there and tries to hang out.
Monica doesn't care and admits she'll hook up with Chandler in front of Ross. It might have just been a threat but still. She didn't care if he stayed or went. Luckily, Ross decides to go. Still, it's an odd threat to make to her brother.
5 ROSS HELPED MONICA PICK OUT LINGERIE
It's common for siblings to help the other out. In fact, helping pick out outfits is usually a siblings job. Like always, Ross and Monica have to take it to another level. It's a much creeper level as well. In season 8, Monica's trying to entice Chandler with lingerie.
Initially, she just wants to ask Phoebe for help. Of course, Ross insists on helping. She assumes he'll back off once she tells him what it's for. She couldn't be more wrong. Indeed, Ross helps her pick out an enticing outfit to seduce Chandler. It's a bit on the odd side that Ross would help with that. He helped his little sister pick out lingerie for his best friend.

. There's a good chance one or both are going to have no clothes on. In fact, both lose a good portion of their clothes. That should have been enough for them not to play. It seems not to bother them to play it together. There's a good chance they've played other strip games in the past.

It does seem odd that he's kind of flirty with his sister. To be fair, she did have an excellent tan. Regardless, he didn't need to drool over her legs. Even Chandler thought he went too far in the situation. Of course, Ross doesn't have the same experience as Monica when getting a spray tan.

This is when the routine is first used.
They're certain the routine will be enough. It's a bit strange that they've both been practicing the routine all these years. In addition, it's a pretty risque dance with them getting very close. Of course, there's nothing wrong with that. Well, if it wasn't Ross and Monica. It remains one of the most popular moments on the show.
