Friends recently hit Netflix, allowing a whole new generation (and previous ones) to relive the American sitcom in all its glory. With copious amounts of re-runs on what seems like nearly every channel on television, Easter eggs are still being spotted by devotees of the 10 season show years later.

Mostly comical outtakes or viral content, the most recent Easter egg to be found has made us question the very fabric of one of its most beloved characters... WHO IS RACHEL!?

I mean, just take a look at... Monica?

Perhaps Jennifer Aniston is in fact a fake Rachel, stealing the real Rachel's identity and slipping into a new life among unwitting friends. Take a look at her passport for further proof!

Or you know... it's a stand-in and we're all just over thinking this...
