The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Corrected entry: When Monica Geller tries to get a rematch on the race, Chandler Bing says they left -- but no door sound was heard.

Correction: Just because you don't hear a door close doesn't mean it didn't. They were playing a game and cheering and carrying on so it is perfectly conceivable that people could leave without being noticed.


Plus they probably shut the door very quietly so no one would notice them leaving.

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Corrected entry: When Joey tries to get Ross' parents to share their birthday gift for Emma with him, Ross' father says: "Which one are you?" As well as having met him many times before, the only other options of who he could be is Ross, his own son or Chandler, his daughter's husband.

Correction: Certainly not a movie mistake to have a character forget who someone is. Some people are not good with names and faces.


The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Corrected entry: What has happened to Ross' tan? An average spray on tan lasts about a fortnight and, if he could wash it off, why didn't he just get rid of it immediately after the first time he is sprayed?

Correction: They don't say how much time passed between episodes. Just because the episode aired a week apart doesn't mean the events happen a week apart.


The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Corrected entry: In The One With The Cake, Chandler says that he has to go to the bathroom and Phoebe and Joey run in after him because they say he's trying to escape out the window, but The One With The Fertility Test we see a glimpse of the left wall (the only one we rarely see so may have a window) many times, from the kitchen perspective. There is no window, just things hanging on the wall, possibly a towel on a hook.


Correction: In other episodes, when the shower curtain is opened, you can see the window is on the back wall on the far side of the tub (which is not uncommon).


The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Corrected entry: Emma was born in May, the season finale, and they celebrated her birthday in October.

Correction: I think it has already been established that what happens on the show doesn't necessarily occur in the same month when it airs. For instance, the episode when Rachel gave birth aired in May but the same day is portrayed in the next season premier in September.


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)

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 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.
