The One In Vegas, Part 1 - S5-E23

Corrected entry: When Phoebe is looking at herself in the mirror with Joey's gladiator hat and says that she should start wearing hats, the microphone's reflection is visible at the top of the mirror.

Correction: That's an item hanging on the wall behind her.

The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Corrected entry: Chandler and Ross go back to the reception site to take pictures with disposable cameras to "replace" the cameras they had misplaced. Chandler is posing, smiling, etc. In the previous season, Chandler and Monica are getting their engagement picture taken and Chandler can't smile for the camera. In fact, Monica ends up taking her picture with Joey and puts that in the paper.

Correction: That is previously. Chandler could have learnt to smile in that time. Not a mistake.

The One Where Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Rachel is eating at the diner and she and Monica are talking, there is a red glass sitting in front of her. In the next shot she is talking to Mark and says "It's not funny!" and the glass is gone; in the shot after that it's back again.

Pam-I-am

Correction: When Rachel and Mark are talking, Monica picks up a pitcher of water and you can see her reach for Rachel's glass. So, she is refilling it, that's why it's not there for a while.

The One That Could Have Been, part 1 - S6-E15

Corrected entry: When Rachael meets Ross at the magazine stand, Ross's "Busty Ladies" doesn't appear in his hand until Rachael points it out. At several points, both his hands are in view.

Correction: I have studied this scene very well and every time that Ross' hands are in view, you can see the magazine, "Busty Ladies", in his hands.

The One With The Flashback - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In the flashback episode, Chandler and Monica are in the bar (which is soon to become Central Perk) and Rachel is in the same bar with her friends before she is due to marry Barry. When Chandler overhears Rachel - a complete stranger - say she wants one last fling, he tries to flirt with her, but she dismisses him. Monica then says "I know her" and talks to Rachel briefly with Chandler present. In fact, as revealed in later episodes, Chandler and Rachel knew each other when he was in college with Ross and Rachel was in high school with Monica - in fact they even made out at a college party.

Correction: Then the mistake is in subsequent episodes, not this one. In any case, Chandler simply didn't recognize Rachel.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In an episode shortly after Rachel and Ross break up, Rachel makes reference to the fact that she is like Kip, yet she would never have met Kip because by the time she joined the group, Joey was already Chandler's roommate.

Correction: She could have heard the others talk about Kip, and compared herself to the mental image she had of this (to her) unknown person.

The One After the Superbowl, part 2 - S2-E13

Corrected entry: Monica and Rachel have two fights in this episode - one before Monica's date with Van Damme, and then after. Interestingly enough, Monica, Rachel and Phoebe are wearing exactly the same outfits for both scenes, which seems just a tad unrealistic given that the date has taken place in between.

Correction: It may be a long shot but it could happen. Not a mistake.

The One With Rachel's Going Away Party - S10-E16

Corrected entry: When packing up the spare room in Monica and Chandler's apartment, the boys find a pair of fluffy handcuffs in the wardrobe. Monica and Chandler painted the room and inside the wardrobe when Rachel moved out; wouldn't they have found them then?

Correction: We have no evidence of Monica and Chandler painting the wardrobe, so they wouldn't have found them.

The One With The Triplets - S5-E3

Corrected entry: Monica tells Chandler she is not going to go on the date with the man nurse. As she is walking away, Chandler is going to do a dance and she says don't do the dance. The dance she is referring to is the one he does where he hears that Monica is with someone who is the best sex she's ever had. How can she know about this dance if the first time she sees it isn't until the following episode?

Correction: Easy - Chandler probably does this dance all the time, and she knows him well enough to know that he does it when he wants to celebrate something.

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Corrected entry: In the scene where Phoebe and Joey figure out that Monica took away their keys, Phoebe had gotten a drink out of the fridge and set it down in front of her. In the next shot it is in front of Joey.

Pam-I-am

Correction: There is a shot of phoebe and you can just make out Joey pulling the drink towards him. then it cuts to Phoebe and the drink is in front of Joey.

The One with the Candy Hearts - S1-E14

Corrected entry: Just before Ross crushes the egg on Chandler's back, you can see that he has nothing in either of his hands. You can see Ross shaking his fingers as he says 'she said yes' (00:02:55)

Dwarf

Correction: The egg is in Ross's jacket pocket, not his hand. That is why Ross and Chandler awkwardly move off in kind of hug.

The One with the Boobies - S1-E13

Corrected entry: In the coffee house when Joey's dad asks Ross "How's the wife?" he moves his head and makes a groaning sound. His lips do not visibly move, and there is no other indication that he made this noise. It also sounds strange and misplaced in the shot if you listen to it in surround sound, implying it was dubbed in afterwards. (00:04:10)

David Mercier

Correction: The sound that Ross makes is perfectly possible as his mouth is slightly open. You don't need to move your lips to groan.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In early seasons in Chandler and Joey's apartment, there is a shelf between the fridge and the wall. In later seasons the shelf has disapeared and the whole kitchen has shifted so the fridge is against the wall.

Correction: It is not unreasonable for something to disappear throughout 10 years. The kitchen area and equipment changes slightly, but not unreasonably given the timeframe, and it's not like they'd mention buying a new oven, etc. in the show.

The One with the Candy Hearts - S1-E14

Corrected entry: The English subtitles on the DVD show Carol's last name is Willet - but it's Willick. (00:05:15)

Correction: Subtitle mistakes on the dvd are not mistakes made by the show. They are DVD production mistakes.

The One With Phoebe's Wedding - S10-E12

Corrected entry: At the end when Ross is trying to get the dog to go to the bathroom, you can see the shadow of the trainer of the dog over the ground, getting the dog to run around everywhere.

Correction: There is no shadow.

The One With The Birth Mother - S10-E9

Corrected entry: Joey can read Phoebe's mind! Joey asks for the phone number of Phoebe's friend. Phoebe gives Joey a pen. He writes the name of the girlfriend on his hand and gives the pen back. Phoebe never tells him the phone number. A couple of scenes later, Joey is having dinner with that girl.

Correction: Obviously time has passed since the first scene, Therefore it is very likely Pheobe could have given it Joey after she noticed the mistake or vice versa.

The One With the Male Nanny - S9-E6

Corrected entry: When Joey and Sandy are playing the recorders, the sound produced is out of sync with the finger movements, indicating that they are not actually playing the instruments.

Correction: No, their finger movements match the sound completely.

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene when Phoebe breaks into the other Phoebe's house and gets caught, the older Phoebe was telling the younger one that the man in the photo is not Frank Buffay, but is Chuck Mangioni. Right after that, as Phoebe 2 walks towards the camera, you can see that the door behind her moves open, and there is a visible shadow of someone who walks by that doorway. (00:19:00)

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
