The One With The Lesbian Wedding - S2-E11

Corrected entry: In the party after the wedding Rachel's mom comes up to Rachel to talk. Well in one shot Rachel has her drink in her right hand right when her mom starts handing her drink to Rachel. Next shot Rachel has her drink in her left hand and takes her mom's in her right hand even though there's just no time to switch hands between those shots.

Correction: She is holding the glass in her right hand but her left hand is practically touching the glass making it very easy for her to switch hands. Even in slow motion this scene looks OK.

Correction: This is Monica, two possibilities are that 1) she had a backup turkey for Thanksgiving and 2) it's in the freezer for Christmas, which is only a month away. Lastly, I've never tried but I see no reason why she would faint in the time shown. I suspect the turkey is not airtight.

The One With Rachel's Sister - S6-E13

Corrected entry: When Rachel comes in to spy on Ross through Monica and Chandler's window we hear the shower water running and both Monica and Chandler are in the bathroom. However, Chandler comes out wearing a T-shirt under his robe (and he's wearing socks). This seems to assume that he is dry (as the T-shirt is dry too). Also we can see that Monica is wearing her nightdress under her robe when we see down to her feet, so how could one or both of them have been showering?

Correction: It could have been bathwater running, and they were not yet in the tub.

Correction: This is Phoebe, it is easily possible that she has two friends that shave their heads. Phoebe's friends are not exactly normal.

The One With the Male Nanny - S9-E6

Corrected entry: As Chandler is leaving for Tulsa, he tells Monica to have Geoffrey (who Monica claimed was the funniest person she ever met) email him with funny Oklahoma jokes at www.hahanotsomuch.com. There is a real web page with this name with various quotations from that episode.

Correction: Not any more, I just tried.

The One With The Invitation - S4-E21

Corrected entry: When the gang minus Rachel receives their invitations, Phoebe states that Ross let Ben address hers, and shows the rest of them. We see that the envelope has a full address consisting of four lines. Chandler then enters, and about 10 seconds later we see Phoebe's invitation again, this time only having an address consisting of one line.

Correction: Look carefully at Phoebe all through this scene. We see Phoebe with her invitation, and it has her name and address on. She then takes off this envelope AND PUTS IT IN HER LAP. Inside this envelope is ANOTHER envelope with just her name on. The addressed envelope stays in her lap for the duration of the scene, and when we see the envelope with one line, this is the 2nd envelope.

The One With Chandler's Dad - S7-E22

Corrected entry: When the police officer is giving Rachel a ticket he sees her birthday, says "Aquarius", and she says yes. But in an earlier episode when Gunther is asking for people's birthdays Rachel says her birthday is May 5. To be an Aquarius your birthday has to be between January and February.

Correction: Rachel is trying to get out of paying a ticket, she isn't going to tell the officer he is wrong.

Correction: According to Martha Kauffman, Ross and Rachel were able to cover the pen marks with makeup at that point, as it had begun to wear off anyway.

That's just not right, though. The makeup stays on their faces all evening, and it's fully intact when they wake up the next morning. Then they go to breakfast and it's gone. An hour or two wouldn't have made the difference that 12+ hours didn't.

The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Corrected entry: Chandler claims to have hidden Joey's underwear because "he stole my essence." But Chandler didn't go out of the apartment to do this, meaning the only time he could have done it was when he was over there first, and he wouldn't have done because there was no incentive to do so as Joey hadn't taken the cushions off the chair.

David Mercier

Correction: It is obvious that Chandler was saying the first thing that came in his head, not the actual reason why he took Joey's underwear. He even hesitates when Ross asks him.

Correction: He told them the first time that they were getting divorced, but not why.

Correction: I've watched this scene very carefully and the cup simply does not move at all. It remains in exactly the same position for the whole scene.

Correction: There is a similar looking cuddly toy on that cabinet but it is definitely not Hugsy. It's clearly a different shape.

tw_stuart

Correction: If you watch the scene carefully Rachel is reaching for the phone and hangs up just a fraction of a second before she screams.

tw_stuart

Correction: They could have sent it to a P.O box or a friend of hers or even a business she stayed close to.

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Correction: Joey is a natural liar as evidenced by his behaviour all through the show. He lies to and about women, he lied on his resume and has commented on it more than once. He lied when he was pretending to be Chandlers colleague. The issue in this case is that Joey can't think on his feet when he suddenly needs an excuse.

The One With Monica's Boots - S8-E10

Corrected entry: In The One With Monica's Boots, Joey finds out that his younger sister Deena is pregnant. Joey then storms off to find her boyfriend Bobby and manages to find him. How would he be able to, though? It is made clear that Joey has never met Bobby before, therefore he would not know what he looks like or where to find him. Even if he did some how manage to find him how did he manage to do it so quickly?

Correction: It is probably likely that he went down to their neighborhood and asked around, it isn't that hard to locate someone if you have their entire name (which Deena gave him). Also, you don't know how long it took him. Considering that the scene that shows Joey lecturing both Bobby and Deena came after the scene that shows Monica and Chandler at the party at nighttime, one can conclude that it took Joey a while to locate Bobby.

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Corrected entry: In the episode in Barbados (part 2) when Mike and Monica are playing table tennis, Mike goes to great pains to explain that if a player puts his/her non bat hand on the table while the ball is in play then the player forfeits the point. Just before Mike wins his game (the second game they play) he stretches to get a shot from Monica and places his non bat holding hand on the table.

Kara

Correction: Not a mistake in the show, Mike cheated and nobody noticed.

tw_stuart

Correction: The cup doesn't just appear, it's the same cup that was in Chandlers hand earlier which he puts on the counter.

tw_stuart

Correction: The door we see is actually Chandler's bedroom door and since Joanna is inside (we saw her go in), she could have opened it.

tw_stuart

Correction: Rachel never says this, the closest she comes is when she simply says "together?" During the scene where they discuss the cat her tray doesn't change position in any unusual or unexplainable way.

Friends mistake picture

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the coffee house, Phoebe is talking to Monica who is drinking a cup of coffee. Towards the end of the scene, the camera is on Phoebe who is smiling & laughing at Monica. In the right hand corner is a side view of 'Monica' however, it is not Courtney Cox in the scene, but a completely different actress. [Widescreen version only, although the "wrong" nose is visible in the original]. (00:06:20)

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying, "I knew it!" When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy, and it is a big deal!" is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
