The One With Phoebe's Ex-Partner - S3-E14

Question: When I first watched this, the way Joey talked and everyone reacted, I thought he had accidentally thrown Ginger's real leg into the fire, and she got an artificial one later. If Ginger had her fake leg then, why did everyone react the way they did?

Chosen answer: How in the name of heaven would he have "thrown" her real leg into the fire, short of wrenching it off her body? Joey's not a psychopath. They reacted the way they did because he threw her artificial leg, thinking it was a log, into the fire, then ran away, leaving a one-legged woman stranded in a cabin with no means of transportation. A cowardly response, and he clearly feels awful about it after the fact, but that doesn't negate it being a terrible thing to do in the first place - less so the action itself, which was a stupid mistake, but him running away afterwards.

The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding. (00:05:15)

Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
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.
