The One With Ross's Wedding, part 1 - S4-E23

Corrected entry: The wedding is threatened because Ross, Emily, and Monica discover that the location has been torn down a few days early. However, when one plans an event, especially a wedding, one puts down a deposit to hold the location, signs a contract, and has all of that in writing. The church would not have allowed the tear-down to happen early as they'd be in breach of contract for accepting money and then allowing the church to be torn down before the wedding. And if they had broken the contract, Monica would have been screaming about it and demanding a refund.

Correction: They decided very fast to get married. They didn't have a place and they were just going to check that place. Maybe they were hoping to close the deal that day.

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Corrected entry: When Monica and Chandler are in the bath, she goes under the water as Joey comes in, and when she reappears her wine glass is still full of wine. It would have filled up with water, not stayed with just wine. (00:00:55)

Correction: When Monica surfaces, it is actually Chandler's glass which is in shot and has never been underwater. Monica's glass isn't seen again.

The One with the Thumb - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Alan arrives at the apartment, he doesn't have anything with him, but when Monica says goodnight to him at the door, he is carrying an umbrella.

Correction: If you look real carefully [and well, try slow-motion it] when Allan arrives he indeed has an umbrella on his right hand, the camera shot just shows a bit of it, but you can actually see it there, so him carrying an umbrella when leaving is not a mistake, because he took it in with him when he arrived.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Joey is shown moving into Chandler's apartment and meeting everyone for the first time approximately one year before Rachel showed up. It is also mentioned that it is a warm time of year, indicating that it is set during the summer months. However in 'The One With All The Thanksgivings' (series 6) Joey is shown living with the Friends by Thanksgiving (i.e. November) 1992.

Correction: This entry corrects itself: Joey is shown living there BY Thanksgiving.... so he moved in during the prior summer.

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Corrected entry: When Rachel is getting rid of her date to go inside and console a depressed Ross, you can see a crew member just as she opens the door when she goes back inside. That's neither Chandler nor Joey since Ross was just sitting there alone.

ester

Correction: There is no-one else there, except Ross in the background. What you see is maybe his shirt, but nothing else.

The One Where Dr. Ramoray Dies - S2-E18

Corrected entry: When Phoebe is reading Joey's interview in the soap magazine, her earrings change colour from red to yellow in between shots. (00:07:00)

Correction: Actually, in some shots you can clearly see that the inside of the earrings are yellow and the outside is red so it is not a mistake.

The One With Phoebe's Cookies - S7-E3

Corrected entry: Phoebe says that her Grandma gave the cookie recipe to her 'on her deathbed', yet in series 5 Phoebe says that her grandmother died suddenly on a shopping trip, rather than from a long illness or old age as she suggests.

NatalieNinetales

Correction: People generally have two grandmothers. Just because her father ran off, doesn't mean that his mother abandoned her grandchildren so readily.

The One After Ross Says Rachel - S5-E1

Corrected entry: At the point where Monica Geller shows Joey the DVD, it's not a DVD but a board to show Matt Leblanc his lines (note him moving his eyebrows).

kane raggett

Correction: Conjecture. Joey is a "dim bulb" and he is reacting to the situation. There is no indication that Matt LeBlanc would need cheatsheets to remember his lines.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In most episodes at any point in Joey's apartment, the amount of CDs in the CD rack keeps changing.

kane raggett

Correction: How on earth is that a mistake?? My CD collection changed innumerable times over the course of 10 years.

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Corrected entry: When Monica Geller tries to get a rematch on the race, Chandler Bing says they left -- but no door sound was heard.

kane raggett

Correction: Just because you don't hear a door close doesn't mean it didn't. They were playing a game and cheering and carrying on so it is perfectly conceivable that people could leave without being noticed.

Plus they probably shut the door very quietly so no one would notice them leaving.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In episode 8.15, Phoebe accepts saltwater taffy treats from Ross saying she has never eaten them before when in episode 2.23, she mentioned that her then boyfriend, Ryan, a guy who is in the navy, gave her saltwater taffy for playing her guitar because he didn't have any change.

macaroon

Correction: That doesn't mean she ate it. I wouldn't eat a piece of candy some stranger put in my bag.

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Corrected entry: When Phoebe and Joey are arguing about Phoebe's guitar teaching lessons, Monica comes in between them and gets her picture taken with them. Who takes the picture? Monica, Joey and Phoebe are all in the picture, Ross is on his date, Rachel is out (she comes in just after the picture is taken) and Chandler isn't there either (he is on the phone to Monica when Rachel picks up the phone). So who did it? There is no furniture there for Monica to have put it high enough to get them all in if she'd set the timer, either.

Correction: Monica's apartment has an area of work top near the door and it also has a table the the right as you can see when rachel comes in singing bad bad leroy brown, she must set a timer set it up on the work top or table and then go and pose for the photo, there fore it wouldn't need anyone to take it.

The One Where Nana Dies Twice - S1-E8

Corrected entry: Rachel says to Chandler that she thought he was gay when she first met him, but then later he spent "Phoebe's entire birthday party staring at her breasts". In a later season, we find out that they kissed when Chandler was in college and Rachel in high school. Also. Phoebe has not had a birthday since Rachel and she met for the first time.

Correction: I used to work with an openly gay man who slept with more women in high school and college than I, or most of my friends, did. Chandler and Rachel kissing is in no way an indication of whether he was gay or not.

The One With The Lottery - S9-E18

Corrected entry: After Phoebe calls Ross "daddy", the camera goes to Ross and he can be seen laughing for a second before talking.

Correction: He is laughing because the situation is awkward - it's not a mistake.

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Corrected entry: Rachel says, "I'm Kip", and Joey asks who Kip is. Rachel answers that Kip lived with Chandler before he did. How does Rachel know this? She was the last to move and had little contact with Monica between college and the pilot episode.

Henkie36

Correction: Between the pilot and this episode, several months or even years have passed in the "Friends" universe. There has been plenty of time for Rachel to hear about Kip from Chandler or Ross.

The One With The Engagement Picture - S7-E5

Corrected entry: During the scene where Rachel gets Tag's scarf out of his backpack and smells it, a coworker walks up. Rachel puts on the backpack to disguise what she was doing. The camera cuts away a few times and the final time she does not have the backpack on anymore.

wHw

Correction: If you watch carefully you see it all the time. Since she is wearing a black coat it's sometimes difficult to see, but the backpack is there and in the last scene she takes it off.

The One With The Late Thanksgiving - S10-E8

Corrected entry: Surely the adoption office won't have anyone in it on Thanksgiving. Why do they get a call then from them. (00:20:40)

Correction: It's not that strange that someone would be in on Thanksgiving. In one episode Chandler and the people in his office had to work on Christmas eve and New Year's eve, so why couldn't the adoption office have someone there on Thanksgiving?

The One With Barry & Mindy's Wedding - S2-E24

Corrected entry: In this episode, when Ross and Rachel are at the wedding, there's a couple, "Mr. and Mrs. Weinberg" that approaches and tells Rachel that he's happy to see her and he hardly expected to see so much (because in that episode Rachel walks down the aisle with her butt showing). The lady is actually another extra from another episode, the one where Chandler quits. It's the same lady who goes and tells Chandler about their boss wanting to talk to him.

AndreinaDepp

Correction: Extras are often used in multiple episodes.

The One After the Superbowl, part 1 - S2-E12

Corrected entry: At the episode's end, the kids from the library song hour all somehow manage to show up as a group to her coffee shop. But their parents are nowhere to be seen. So, what then - did upwards of a dozen kids, less than 10 years old, all independently call each other, when they only know each other through story hour, and arrange to go to the coffee shop together? What did they do with their parents? Or did they supposedly all bolt from the story hour together, without a single parent following? (00:21:00)

Correction: Some of them are sitting on grown-up's laps as Phoebe sings so some parents probably came with them. The parents who didn't object to the songs could have arranged for some of the children to go together.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Corrected entry: For the game, there are 16 questions - 8 for each gender. When Ross says they have a tie, there are about 5 questions left on the board. Ross then goes to the Lightning Round and completely forgets about the other 5 questions. (00:07:30)

Brad Premium member

Correction: Ross says from the start that each team will answer ten questions. Ross has just made up more, in case one category is more popular than the others.

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 Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Question: When Joey asks why he can't give Kathy the pen, Chandler says, "Because she's not eleven. And it's not the seventh night of Chanukah." What is Chandler talking about when he says, "It's not the seventh night of Chanukah?"

Answer: Usually by the seventh night of Hanukkah you don't know what to get the other person, and you will probably resort to getting the other person something insignificant. Chandler is basically saying that the pen is a stupid gift.

Answer: Chanukah is a Jewish celebration that occurs around the same time as the Christian Christmas. The celebration lasts for eight days and it is customary to give a small gift on each of the eight days. There is no special gift required and the line about it being "the seventh night" of Chanukah is just Chandler's sarcasm.
