New this month Audio problem: In the scene before the opening credits, if you listen carefully to Chandler's line, "If I don't get it done, I'll be fired", you can tell it's an overdub. The background noise and volume levels are different than the rest of his speaking.
Continuity mistake: When Joey goes to Monica and Chandler's apartment, he goes to the fridge to get something to drink to keep his bladder full for the audition. When he closes the fridge he has two bottles in his left hand. The camera cuts to Monica, then cuts back to Joey. He then has two cans in his left hand and is holding them differently.
Continuity mistake: In the coffee house, when Ross and Joey are having a fight about Joey's proposal to Rachel, Ross does the "quote gesture" with his hands and Joey says he doesn't know what this means. In TOW the Secret Closet, Joey used it himself when talking to Chandler, in the scene where he asks him to bring a bobby pin to pick the closet's lock.
Continuity mistake: When Rachel takes her gift certificate to the massage parlour to claim her free massage, she hands it to the receptionist and we can see that it has been torn up into eight pieces and taped back together. Yet when Phoebe tears up the gift certificate in a previous scene, we see her tear it into only four pieces before handing it back to Rachel.
Continuity mistake: In TOW the lottery tickets series 9 just after Chandler has got the job and he sits down you can see Joey's hand in the right side of the screen however when the shot changes Joey moves his hands up to the position we have just seen. The shot changes back and his hand is in the same position.
Continuity mistake: In the one with Phoebe's rat babies, it is very obvious that the box has nothing in it. Also when she is in her apartment explaining about giving up the triplets she had for her brother she puts the box down on the table, yet when it cuts to Mike's face and Phoebe's realisation that she hadn't told him that before, the box is back on her lap.
Continuity mistake: When Rachel wakes up Emma during a nap, against Phoebe's advice, there is a shot of Emma in the cot. She is wearing a plain pink hat, but in the next shot, when Rachel lifts her out of the cot, she is wearing a white hat with what looks like little flowers on it.
Revealing mistake: On a number of occasions in this and the next episode, the beach and the water can be seen in the background, through hotel windows. White foam is visible in a number of places, like the crests of waves, but not only do they not move while the camera is on them, they are always in the same place in subsequent shots, revealing that this is a painted backdrop.
Continuity mistake: When Phoebe says that they should not tell Ross that the date is cancelled so that he gets stood up, Joey says, "I hear that's bad" - implying that he has never been stood up so doesn't know how it feels. However, in TOW Two Parts (Part II), Ursula stands Joey up, and he takes it pretty bad.
Continuity mistake: In The One With The Lottery, Chandler is on the phone to find out if he got the job, he then hangs up and rolls up one of his sleeves. In the next shot of him both sleeves are rolled up. Then you can see his sleeves slip down again, but when it cuts to a closer shot, you can see they're rolled up again.
Continuity mistake: Towards the end, during a scene at Ross and Rachel's, Sandy picks up two puppets and puts them on each hand. He starts pulling the blue one onto his left hand, but when the angle changes there's a yellow one on his left hand, and a blue one on his right. It cuts to Ross, then when we go back to Sandy they've changed hands again.
