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 All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Corrected entry: In the scene where Phoebe is describing her worst Thanksgiving experience (in 1862 as a nurse) and her left hand is blown away, you can see that the hand is fake as it doesn't move, is shorter and is a different color to the right one. Additionally, in the time between the bomb exploding and her hand being torn away, a rope is visible moving it.

Correction: Yes, that's the point, the arm does look obviously fake, and just look at the way blood spurts out, it looks deliberately cheesy. Arms don't just fall off like that either. It is just a funny scene. The writers had no intention of it being taken seriously.


The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Corrected entry: In The One With All The Thanksgivings, Monica is cheering up Chandler by putting a turkey on her head. Where did the whole uncooked turkey come from though, considering they had just had their meal? Did Monica just happen to have a large turkey in her freezer? To make matters worse, it is not possible for a human being to put a frozen turkey over his head for that long and not faint.

Correction: This is Monica, two possibilities are that 1) she had a backup turkey for Thanksgiving and 2) it's in the freezer for Christmas, which is only a month away. Lastly, I've never tried but I see no reason why she would faint in the time shown. I suspect the turkey is not airtight.


The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Corrected entry: When Phoebe has the flashbacks to her former life as a nurse in the war, the arm that gets blown off is very obvious a fake.


Correction: Yes it's a fake but there was never any attempt to make it look real - the blood spray is over the top too. It's just another aspect of the scene's silliness.


The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Corrected entry: In The One With All The Thanksgivings Monica is trying to cheer up Chandler by putting a turkey on her head. You can see that she is only carrying a hat in her hands but after she places the hat on top of the turkey she also puts a big pair of yellow sunglasses on it. Where did the sunglasses come from?

Correction: When Monica comes up to the door she has the sunglasses tucked in her pants. Thats why the sunglasses seem to appear out of nowhere after she puts the hat on.


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 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.
