New this week Continuity mistake: 12 hours before the wedding, Monica asks Joey to speed it up. Here she stirring a bowl. In the next few seconds you can see Monica holding some condiments in her hand. After Phoebe answers, Monica is stirring again and the condiments are nowhere to be seen.
Continuity mistake: When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding.
Visible crew/equipment: Chandler and Joey are spending time with Richard; as they play foosball and Richard scores, he leans back and says "Could that shot BE any prettier?" in a mockery of Chandler. The end of the wall and the hallway behind it are visible (ie the wall set ends).
Continuity mistake: When Monica is trying to cheer Joey up, she tells him that she straightened out his shower curtain so it wouldn't get mildew. But in a previous episode (The One Where Eddie Moves In), Joey gives the gang a tour of his new apartment; the shower is clearly visible in the bathroom, and it has a door.
Continuity mistake: The prom video has just ended and the TV screen goes blank. Monica had been sitting next to Rachel, but in the reflection of the TV screen you can see her beginning to stand up. We cut back to a 'real' view, and she's sitting down; then she stands up again.
Visible crew/equipment: When Phoebe goes to visit her father, there is a little dog outside. Phoebe gets back in the car and the dog jumps up the side of it. When he finally gets part way through the window, the top of the dog-handler's head is visible through the car window.
Factual error: The symptoms (spots, fever, etc) of chicken pox only develop 2 - 3 weeks after exposure to the virus. Therefore, when Ross knew that Ben had chicken pox, Phoebe shouldn't have developed the condition until at least two weeks later, and Ryan certainly shouldn't have developed the disease until the end of his stay (as Phoebe was his only contact with the virus).
Visible crew/equipment: During the prom video, Monica, Rachel, and Monica's date Roy are standing in the living room. When Roy leaves the room saying, "I'm gonna kick Chip's ass," the camera follows him out, but as it's turning the boom mic operator is visible. He's kneeling on the floor sliding the mic toward the girls.
Continuity mistake: When Chandler is sitting in his kitchen with Monica and Phoebe, talking to the woman on his computer, the camera is on Monica, showing part of the computer screen. The screen is blank, indicating that the computer is off. In the next shot, the sound of an instant message is heard, indicating that the computer is in fact on.
Other mistake: When Rachel leave her message on Ross' answering machine she mentioned the name Michael after 17 seconds and "I'm over you" after 25 seconds. When Ross listen to the tape he asks "Who is Michael ?" after 8 seconds. Rachel flips the phone out of his hand after 18 seconds so he couldn't have heard her "I'm over you."
Revealing mistake: After Mr. Heckles has been taken away, in the last wideshot while everyone's still standing in the hallway, when this is viewed on the DVD (Warner Bros. S2 set) we can see a long black line on the floor (as noted in another mistake). The problem is that when this is viewed online on Netflix, even though we can see the very same area of floor, that black line has been blurred out. Weird that it wasn't edited on the DVD, and yet it was for the version available on Netflix.
Visible crew/equipment: After the opening credits, just as Joey says that it's unbelievable Phoebe can be married, a camera and yellow electrical cord can be seen at the left side of the screen, and a bit of it is still visible in following shots when Monica mentions the cheeseburger.
