Did these things happen on The Facts of Life or Friends?

Will your score live up to your dreams?

Sitcoms centered on friendship have been cracking up audiences for decades. The Facts of Life proved this in the 1980s, running for eight seasons, then in the 1990s, Friends picked up the torch to carry TV viewers through the next decade.

One show followed a group of girls thrown together in a boarding house in Peekskill, New York. The other tracked the ups and downs of six friends trying to make it in New York City. You'd think they'd share little in common, but if you shared laughs with these TV friends over the years, you might have noticed some subtle similarities in their stories.

Below, we've mixed up short summaries of episodes of The Facts of Life with Friends. See if you can pick apart these TV pals. Good luck!
  1. One friend starts selling cosmetics and uses another friend as her model.
  2. One friend cuts another friend’s hair to look like Dudley Moore’s.
  3. The friends become stranded on their way to a ski trip.
  4. The friends arrive at a ski resort to find a bachelor party occupying their cabin.
  5. A spa mix up turns one friend blonde while another gets green hair.
  6. Two friends take on another two friends in a game of poker.
  7. When the whole city suffers a blackout, one friend confesses a crush.
  8. A serious flood finds two friends trapped at a stable.
  9. The friends make (and break) a pact not to bring dates to their NYE party.
  10. One friend brings home a really nice bottle of wine; another friend drinks it all.

9/10 because #6 is worded wrong.

In the quiz, “Facts of Life or Friends”, question #6 is worded wrong. It says, “two friends play another two friends in poker.” It should say, “three friends play another three friends in poker.” All six “Friends” played.

2. Was supposed to have been Demi Moore's hairstyle.
9. "Hey, everybody, the ball is dropping." "What?" "The BALL is DR-R-R-R-ROPPING!"

9/10, knew Friends, not Facts of Life. Got #10 wrong because I was thinking of the Friends episode where Fun Bobby has a drinking problem, but acknowledge it did not line up precisely with the quiz description.

9/10 and here's why! [1] No Avon Ladies on Friends! [2] Who doesn't remember when the Dudley overtook the Rachel? [3] The Eastland girls don't get lost! [4] They do however get their reservations mixed up! [5] That could never happen on Friends! [6] The Eastland girls don't play poker...well, maybe Jo! [7]Peekskill is hardly a city! [8] Could a Friend ride a horse? NAY! [9] I think the rule on FOL was only one date per episode! [10] My wrong answer and I will have to assume it was a "very Special" FOL...LOL!!!
PS On the real Growing Pains Matthew Perry played a boy who died while driving drunk! Yes, I know too much useless information!

There's a first season episode of the Facts of Life in which Mrs. Garrett's ex-husband turns Tootie into a poker shark. She cleans the other girls out.
