Friends

Show generally

Corrected entry: Whenever exterior shots of Ross' apartment building are shown, it is across the street from Monica's apartment building, which is the side that doesn't have balconies on, however Monica and Chandler are able to see into Ross's apartment from their balcony. Even if their apartment does have a balcony on the back, Ross's building is on the wrong side of theirs.

Correction: Ross' apartment is across the alley, not across the street. Ross lives on the same block and the apartments face each other across an alley.

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.

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.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The guys on the Fooz-ball table changes color during the show.

citronpralin

Correction: At one point they get a new table, and this is where it changes colour.

The One With the List - S2-E8

Corrected entry: When Ross is climbing up the fire escape and reading Rachel's 'pro list' to her, it is raining really badly. However, when the other four friends walk into the apartment, they are all dry.

Correction: Of course they are dry. If you look closer, you can see they are all holding umbrellas.

The One With The Hypnosis Tape - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When Monica shows Chandler the check from Pete, Chandler says, "Pete Becker, Pete," and he grabs a magazine from his briefcase, but before this Chandler told the girls that he hasn't been able to unlock the briefcase and he just carries it around, so how would Chandler have gotten it out?

Correction: Chandler pulls the magazine from a pocket on the side of the briefcase.

The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Corrected entry: When Ross is kissing the dirty girl on her sofa, he calls her Sarah. Then, when he kills the rat on her coffee table and thinks it was her hamster, he calls her Shelley.

Correction: Actually, he calls her Cheryl both times, which is the correct name of the character played by Rebecca Romijn.

The One Where Underdog Gets Away - S1-E9

Corrected entry: In this episode, when Chandler is telling Rachel his Thanksgiving story, he says that he had just had a mouthful of pumpkin pie when his parents told him they were getting divorced. However, in 'The One With All The Thanksgivings', in the flashback, Chandler is eating turkey when they tell him (hence the houseboy saying 'more turkey Mr. Chandler?').

duncanmc

Correction: The actual scene where Chandler gets the news of his parents divorce was not seen in that flashback. In the scene, Mrs. Bing says "Just because your father and I are getting a divorce...", indicating they already told him.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Corrected entry: In the airport Ross says "I really thought she'd stay". After he says this when the camera zooms out the cut between the carpet and the set floor is very visible. (00:19:50)

Correction: This is not a mistake; terminals are set up this way, carpeted at the gate and tiled in the walkways.

The One With Monica's Thunder - S7-E1

Corrected entry: From the start of Series 7 (and for the next 2 series' at least) does anyone else notice the change in Matthew Perry's voice? I've searched to see if anyone else has mentioned it and as far as I can tell, no one has, but to me it's very obvious. I'm not sure I can explain it too well, but there's just something in his voice that changed (the tone of it and overall sound); it sounds like a different person talking.

Correction: Matthew Perry stopped smoking during the run of the series. He apparently was a very heavy smoker. This most likely accounts for the change in his voice. In any case, this isn't a 'mistake' in the first place.

Brenda Elzin

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Corrected entry: In the scene where Joey tells Ross that the stripper stole the wedding ring, when Chandler says, "So you might say, it's a magic ring", you can see Joey starts laughing in the background. In the next shot he starts laughing again. (00:12:30)

Correction: This simply does not occur. Joey is never in the background during this scene. He is always located in front of Chandler and only laughs when Chandler makes the "magic" comment once.

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Corrected entry: In the scene when Phoebe gets back to the beach house, she is pouring herself a Margarita and instantly she goes from pouring it to holding it up.

Pam-I-am

Correction: There is a fairly long shot of Monica between the actions. So she could pick it up in that time.

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Corrected entry: In shots of Ross in Monica's living room there is a table behind him. In one shot you can see the shadow of the pole from the boom mic on the cloth that is covering it. (For a split second only.) (00:04:05)

Correction: This is a bit vauge. Most of the episode is set in Monica's apartent so what part of the episode.

The One With Ross's Inappropriate Song - S9-E7

Corrected entry: When Chandler finds the video labelled 'Monica' in Richard's appartment, Monica mentions that Chandler could never grow a mustache. However, in earlier episodes (around series 2), he does grow one, trying to copy the same Richard (granted it's not a very good one)

Correction: That's what she is referring to - the tiny bit of hair on his top lip really doesn't make a mustache.

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Corrected entry: When Monica tells Chandler that she'll be ovulating until the sixth, he's crouching next to Emma, but then the shot cuts and he is standing up.

Matty W

Correction: You see him stand up. No mistake.

The One Where Rachel is Late - S8-E22

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode Rachel's water breaks when she is sitting down being kissed by Ross. Despite this her skirt is completely dry when she and Ross walk out of the door to go to hospital.

Correction: When a water breaks, water does not always gush out. For some women it's just a tiny little trickle they can just feel.
