Friends - Umbilical-Less Babies?
OK, when the doctor shows Phoebe's babies around to everyone straight after they come out, the babies have no umbilical cord. They don't even have stumps left which would be there on newly born babies with the cords removed. How the heck did they survive those nine months with no method of nutrition?

Yes I know that they wouldn't use REAL babies that had JUST been born. But they went to the trouble of smothering the babies in red stuff, to look like they had just been born, so they should have made some effort with the umbilical cords too. It's called visual effects.

Almost all babies that are "born" on TV don't have umbilical cords.

If you listen to the commentary, they talk about how that red stuff on the babies is jam. And why would they go through all that trouble to make the babies look newborn? What you guys need to realize, is that it's just TV. They aren't here to make every little thing real!

You're right. It was incredibly unfair of Lisa Kudrow not to have three children so she could be attached to them by a fatty coil of tissue for five seconds worth of film. She's obviously never heard of Stanislavsky. (Or what ever it is, I'm sure they'll be messages telling me the concise make up of an umbilical cord).

Ok...um, first of all, I don't think they would actually show that on TV. Second, they can't have the babies on the show RIGHT after they're born anyway.

If you look real close at Frank junior junior I think you can see an imitation umbilical cord, but the doctor does hold his hand to support the baby where the umbilical cord would be hidden anyway.

Actually, when they show the 1st and 3rd baby, if you look close you can see the cord under the doctor's hand.

I think that no umbilical cords are symbolic. No umbilical cords mean not real babies. Hence, they are not really Phoebe's babies.
