Corrected entry: In Season 2 Episode 1 'TOW Ross' New Girlfriend' Joey is talking about how his tailor did his first pants when he was either 15 or 16. He wasn't sure and said 'When was 1990?' Indicating that he was 15 or 16 in 1990. In Season 6 Episode 19 'TOW Joey's Fridge' It was revealed that in 1981 Joey was 13. Which means that Joey was born in 1968. If Joey was born in 1968, then in 1990 he was 22.
Correction: He never says that in 1990 he was 16. He was asking when was 1990 to have a time reference, and then calculate when the event happened in relation to that.
Corrected entry: At the end of the scene where the duck is taking a bath, the bucket is on the old carpet. Monica removed the carpet in Season 4 episode 13.
New this month Correction: There are two versions with the shots of the duck bathing in the bucket - the DVD version and the widescreen version (such as on Netflix). In both versions, when the guys are at the vet's office they're remembering past fun times with the duck, which includes the memory of the duck bathing. In the widescreen version, the last scene from the DVD has been cut and instead we just see a continuance of the earlier "memory" of the duck bathing, hence once again we see the old carpeting and also the guys' canoe.
Corrected entry: Phoebe shows Ross' invitation to everyone, stating "Ross let Ben address mine." The envelope has poor kid like handwriting. The address is a 4 line address and the invitation also has stamps on it. When the camera comes back to Phoebe, she's holding an envelope with just her name on it, with no stamps. When she puts down the envelope by her side, the 4 line address is back.
Correction: Yes, there are two larger envelopes, but they are not meant to be the same envelope, it's wedding invitation etiquette. The actual invitation itself is inserted in the "inner envelope" with only Phoebe's name written on it (or as 'Phoebe and friend'), and this inner envelope is inserted in the "outside envelope" along with the reply card (in the small envelope), and it's the outside envelope which is stamped and addressed to Phoebe ("4 line address"). We even see Phoebe holding both larger envelopes while removing the reply card's small envelope, just as Monica says, "This is so amazing," and also see them when Rachel opens her own envelope.
Corrected entry: Emily, Ross and Monica walk past a black door, the shot changes to in front of them and back. When it goes back, the door is now a cream colour.
Correction: None of the doors they pass are "cream colour" - every door they pass is black. It's all the window and door trim that are cream.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the episode, when Chandler comes into the apartment to talk to Joey about his kiss with Kathy, Joey turns the TV off and places the remote on the counter. However, the TV is suddenly back on after Joey asks, "Is that why you bought all this stuff?" (referring to the furniture), and then Joey turns it off again manually.
Correction: When Joey uses the remote he only mutes the TV's sound, and in the widescreen version we can see that "Wonder Woman" is still playing on the TV, then later Joey turns off the TV manually.
Corrected entry: When Joey goes into Rachel's room, the yellow couch has a Space Man Marvin on it with a body. In some other episodes, it's just a pillow head.
Correction: So Joey has two of "Marvin the Martian" - one is full body and one is the big head. The fact that in some episodes it's the full body lying on the couch and in some episodes it's the head, doesn't make a mistake, however, if they were to switch between shots during a scene in an episode, that would be a continuity mistake.
Corrected entry: When Chandler and Phoebe go to the jewelry store Phoebe's hair has two braids on each side that are being held together by what appears to be a hair pin, later on the scene where Phoebe is trying on a tiara she only has one braid on each side and no hair pins.
Correction: First, when Chandler's in the store Phoebe doesn't have two braids on the left side of her head - it's only one braid decorated with small colorful rhinestones, but she does have the two single braids on her right side, held together with a small silver hair clip. Second, while Chandler's gone Phoebe's been having fun trying on the store's jewelry - note all the necklaces, brooches, etc., and we see that one of those single braids has come loose so there's just one braid on that side now. But because it's been quite a while since Chandler had left the store, there's really no continuity issue.
Corrected entry: When Phoebe and Chandler are about to kiss there is a bottle of wine and two glasses on the counter. It then cuts to a view of Phoebe with no bottle or glasses on the counter, just a phone, and then later in the same scene it cuts back to Phoebe again and there are two glasses and a bottle of wine again.
Correction: The wine bottle and two glasses are on the counter between the phone and the end of the counter, and the reason we don't see the wine bottle/glasses is because Phoebe's blocking that area of the counter, so we can only see the phone. In every shot where that specific area of the counter is actually visible, the wine bottle and glasses are there.
Corrected entry: When Monica and Chandler are arguing about Phoebe, she has a bottle of water in her right hand, but in the next shot the bottle is in her left hand.
Correction: The change of hands doesn't actually happen in the "next shot." We see the water bottle in Monica's right hand, but when the next shot faces Chandler as he comments about his "pinchable butt and bulging biceps," we don't see Monica's arms/hands, and then it's in the last shot of Monica and Chandler that the water bottle's in Monica's left hand.
Corrected entry: At the very end when Joey breaks down the door, what looks like a stage curtain blows into the shot.
Correction: That's not a curtain on the soundstage, it's actually the tablecloth on the side table - it's white with green pattern and trim. It's also visible earlier in the episode.
Corrected entry: When Rachel gets her Chinese food, she says she is going to get her sweats and eat it in her room. However a few seconds later, she is changed. It has to be the fastest change in history.
Correction: After Rachel gets her Chinese takeout delivery, when she heads to her room it's actually 20 seconds from the time she walks past the hallway to the time she reappears from the hallway. That's ample time to throw off shoes, a blouse and pants, then pull on sweats. Done in less time in dorms everywhere.
Corrected entry: When Rachel enters apartment #19 behind Joey, a person standing behind the door of #20 can be seen through the crack.
Correction: Yes, we see the movements of someone in Monica's apartment (#20), who is either Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, or Ross, all of whom walk out of that apartment when they hear Rachel shouting.
Corrected entry: In the first shot of the scene when Ross comes out of the bathroom, the bathtub has no shower curtain. In the next shot, there is one.
Correction: The shower curtain is there in all shots. The first two shots where we can see the bathroom are from the angle near Joey's bedroom door (off set), and from that angle we actually do see the vertical edge of the grey shower curtain - between the bathtub and toilet, then we next see the bathroom from the angle near the foosball table so we're able to see much more of the shower curtain.
Corrected entry: Phoebe realises that she was the girl who mugged Ross when he was 14. This cannot be true when all throughout the whole show Ross says that he and Monica grew up in Long Island and he moved to NYC for college.
Correction: Phoebe said to Monica (after Ross walked out of the coffee shop) she would mug kids who were coming out of the comic book store near the alley she hung out. Chances are Ross visited the comic store in the city.
Corrected entry: The color of the keys laid down at the end of the episode by each friend corresponds to the colored dots between the letters in the Friends title (red, yellow, and blue).
Correction: The keys are in fact (in no particular order) : purple, blue, black, red, bronze, and bronze.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Chandler pours Joey a glass of orange juice, even though there are sounds of something being poured, if you observe carefully, you can see that there is nothing in the glass - when the juice is supposedly being poured, and even when Joey is drinking the juice.
Correction: You can see the juice being poured in the glass. You can see it dribbling. Also when Joey is holding the glass on the counter you can see the liquid slosh around when he moves his hand.
Corrected entry: Phoebe and Monica are in the hospital room speculating about the coma guy's name, yet he is wearing a hospital bracelet with his identifying information which is easily seen on his wrist, lying above the covers.
Correction: Phoebe says they're calling the man John Doe, so that is the name that must be on the bracelet and it is not his real name.
Corrected entry: Later in the episode, while in Joey's apartment with everyone, Joey says that Rachel found his underwear in the girls' apartment but it was actually Phoebe who found them.
Correction: Joey said Rachel shoved Chandler's underwear in his face, which is true because she's the one who picked it up with the wooden spoon and stuck it near Joey's face when Chandler said the underwear was Joey's.
