The One With The Football - S3-E9

Character mistake: Ross tells Chandler to run a "post pattern to the left." (And Chandler quickly agrees.) In football, this is a type of passing play where Ross would hold on to the ball while Chandler runs straight down the field immediately after the snap, eventually veering diagonally to the left once he's a ways down field to receive a pass from Ross. The play that they actually run is completely different. It's a running play known as a sweep. (A toss sweep to be precise.) There is no possible way that anyone either making play calls or running them would ever confuse a post vs. a sweep. (00:10:10)

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)

Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?

Monica: She will be after tonight.

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

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.
