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.

The One With The 'Cuffs - S4-E3

Corrected entry: When Joey is reading the newspaper while Chandler and Rachel as discussing Joanna, a blue and white cup appears in front of him.

Pam-I-am

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

The One With The 'Cuffs - S4-E3

Corrected entry: After Rachel sees her boss Joanna in the guys' apartment, Joey's bedroom door is shown shut, but is open in a subsequent shot, though no one went near it.

Ral0618

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.

The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Corrected entry: When Rachel says "A cat? Forever?" her tray changes positions.

Pam-I-am

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.

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Corrected entry: The One in Barbados - the Anna Kournikova virus wiped out the whole computer's hard drive. Then when Ross finally gives his keynote speech, all his rather complex-looking presentation slides seem to be available again.

Dan Sgambelluri

Correction: The slides we see consist of a couple of graphics of dinosaurs, one of fossils and one of DNA. These are surely commonplace amongst the audience for Ross' speech and he could have borrowed them from one or more of the many attendees.

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Corrected entry: When Ross and Joey are discussing Joey fixing him up with someone, Ross is fixing a cup of coffee, a milk carton appears that wasn't there before and no one went to the refrigerator.

Pam-I-am

Correction: We very clearly see Ross walk towards the refrigerator, then we see him with a milk carton in one hand and closing the door with the other.

The One Where Monica Sings - S9-E13

Corrected entry: In the one where Joey gets his eyebrows plucked, after Chandler has plucked his other eyebrow they decide to curl Joey's eyelashes. Chandler puts the eyelash curler toward Joey's eyes and looks, to all intents and purposes, like he is curling Joey's lashes because he stops moving, however, Joey is continuously blinking his eyes. If Chandler actually had put the curlers on Joey's lashes, the continuous blinking would have ripped every lash from that eye.

Kara

Correction: There's no mistake here. Exactly because Joey is so visibly blinking, it's very clear that Chandler is waiting for him to stop before he curls. The curling tool (or whatever it's called) is obviously not close enough to Joeys eyelashes and we are not supposed to believe it is.

The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Corrected entry: When Joey is proposing to Rachel, Phoebe is in the background with a water bottle, and screws the lid on twice in the scene.

Pam-I-am

Correction: Phoebe drinks a little bit of the water, and than, if you look closely, you can see her un-screwing the bottle the first time, without her putting the lid back on, and a little bit later she screws it back on.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Corrected entry: Phoebe and Ross talk about how Phoebe's never been in a serious relationship before. In season five she dated Gary for some time and they moved in together. When she later moves in with Mike she says she's always wanted to live with a guy but she has.

Correction: Phoebe says three times that she's never been in a *long term* relationship. She doesn't say that she's never been in a *serious* relationship. The relationship with Gary wasn't long term and she only lived with him for one night because he shot a bird the next morning--hardly what we could call living with someone and something she would want to forget.

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Corrected entry: When Phoebe is sneaking into her mother's house, there is a shot of the house outside and the living area is lit up, however it is dark when she is crawling through the window.

Pam-I-am

Correction: Part of the house is lit up but we have no way to know if it's the living area and most of it is in darkness. Phoebe climbs through a window in the unlit part.

The One With Phoebe's Husband - S2-E4

Corrected entry: In the scene where the friends are discussing Phoebe's husband and Chandlers third nipple, the laundry shown in Monica's kitchen window changes positions throughout the scene.

Pam-I-am

Correction: I've looked carefully at this scene and I see no laundry and nothing that changes outside the kitchen window during this scene.

The One with Mrs. Bing - S1-E11

Corrected entry: Listen carefully when Ross and Mrs. Bing are kissing and Joey comes by - you will hear a woman in the audience saying : "Ooops ." (00:09:00)

Correction: Friends has never made it a secret they have live audiences. As such, someone in the crowd reacting to what is happening is not a mistake.

The One With Ross's Thing - S3-E23

Corrected entry: In the first coffee house scene, Phoebe walks in with the fireman, and talks for the next minute or so. She walks to the counter and picks a coffee up from the counter, without ever placing order for it.

Pam-I-am

Correction: There's no mistake here. Just after the fireman leaves Phoebe walks behind the sofa towards the counter and is out of shot for easily enough time to order coffee. When we see her again, Gunther is in the background preparing coffee as requested.

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Corrected entry: When Phoebe confronts her mother about the man in the picture, she is holding it with the picture facing herself, however in the next shot, it is facing her mother.

Pam-I-am

Correction: I've watched this scene carefully and the mistake is wrong. We very clearly see Phoebe turn the photo to show her mother.

The One With The Ultimate Fighting Champion - S3-E24

Corrected entry: At the fight Ross walks up with a very big drink and a even bigger tub of popcorn, however you never see it again after that shot. It can't be on the floor, they would have stepped on it, and considering the size of it, you should have been able to see it.

Pam-I-am

Correction: He has put them on the floor between his feet, after all there is nowhere else to put them. There is no reason why he would step on them since he knows they are there. We can't see them because we never see a shot of the floor.

The One Where Rachel's Sister Babysits - S10-E5

Corrected entry: When Joey uses the thesaurus to write his recommendation letter to the adoption agency, he signs the letter, "Baby Kangaroo Tribbiani." While certainly comic, and even though the word "joey" does mean "baby kangaroo," it does not come up in the MS Word thesaurus (and it was strongly suggested that they were using Word, as they referenced the thesaurus being under the Tools menu), nor does www.thesaurus.com correlate the two.

DavidK93

Correction: Most software has a Tools menu so it's not reasonable to assume that it could only be MS Word.

The One With Ross's Tan - S10-E3

Corrected entry: Why do Rachel and Joey have to ask Chandler what it was like for him and Monica going from "friends to...more than that," when Rachel already has first hand experience with that exact situation, with Ross? While Ross was always interested in Rachel, so never had a radical shift to cope with, Rachel only viewed Ross as a close friend until she found out his feelings.

DavidK93

Correction: It's true that Rachel already went through this experience as is mentioned earlier in the episode but she always knew Ross had a crush on her as she said in the very first episode. Rachel is just asking how it was for Chandler because things are working out very differently for her and Joey compared to her and Ross so she doesn't know which one is "normal". She's just asking for advice so I don't see any mistake.

The One with the Candy Hearts - S1-E14

Corrected entry: In this episode Ross wants to go and ask Kristen on a date, so Chandler and Joey give him an egg and tell him to return it to her. When he comes back and says and she said yes,he kind of wiggles his fingers around and we see that they are empty, but when he hugs Chandler he says that he still has the egg in his hand. Did it just magically appear out of nowhere?

Correction: When Ross comes back and says he got the date, Chandler hugs him and we hear a cracking noise. Chandler asks "Still got the egg?" and Ross nods. No one says anything about a hand because it's not in his hand - it's in his coat pocket.

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Corrected entry: In the scene where Joey is mad at Janine because of all the girlie things, he brings his towel from the bathroom and puts it on the counter, Janine picks it up, but in the next shot it is back on the counter.

Pam-I-am

Correction: We see Janine pick up the towel but then the shot switches to Joey and she has enough time to put it down again before we see it on the counter.

Season 5 generally

Corrected entry: When Rachel is flying to London we find out that a last minute ticket is $2700. Now even if a regular ticket was only half of that, how does Emily afford flying back and forth constantly?

Correction: First of all, she doesn't go back and forth that much, and no doubt will book a bit in advance, making it much cheaper. Most of the time she is ringing Ross, not speaking to him in person. Secondly, a family member of mine booked a flight to New York with British Airways for £199 ($300ish) return. It's hardly going to break the bank, and as we have evidence that Emily's family is fairly well off it's quite possible for her to be flying like this.

The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

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. (00:05:15)

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?

Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?

Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

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.
