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.

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 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)

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

Ssiscool Premium member

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

Ssiscool Premium member

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

Ssiscool Premium member

Correction: You see him stand up. No mistake.

Ssiscool Premium member

Correction: Too vague, where do they appear?

Ssiscool Premium member

Correction: At no point does this happen. I have just watched this episode.

Ssiscool Premium member

Correction: I just watched this episode and they don't double in size.

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)

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.
