Friends

Season 1 generally

Question: I know when the series first aired on TV I saw a opening sequence where the cast hums the theme song from The Odd Couple, but when I watched my DVDs I never saw it. Am I wrong, or was it edited out for some reason?

Chosen answer: It's Season 1 Episode 12 - The One with the Dozen Lasagnas. If it's not on your DVD, there may have been copyright issues with the song. Broadcast rights and DVD rights are separate deals so music is sometimes switched from TV/theatrical releases and DVD releases.

Season 1 generally

Question: Does anybody know why the actress Anita Barone was replaced by Jane Sibbett as Carol Willick after episode 1.1? I know this kind of thing happens all the time, but I wondered if there was a particular reason.

Chosen answer: From tvtome.com: Anita Barone had auditioned for one of the three female leads in the show, but didn't get the part. The producers then offered her the recurring role of Carol. However, after only one episode as Carol, Barone decided that she was looking for a more full-time role and left to look for other opportunities, being replaced by Jane Sibbett beginning in episode 9.

Mistakes

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.
