Friends

The One With Joey's New Brain - S7-E15

Other mistake: In the scene where Phoebe and Rachel are talking in Phoebe's apartment and Tom is waiting at the door, after Phoebe says "you are such a good friend", we hear someone say Tom, meaning its Tom's turn to talk. (00:20:55)

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Other mistake: In the episode with Ross's wedding to Emily, Joey is talking on a cell phone with Phoebe as he walks down the aisle. Joey holds the phone out to Ross saying 'it's Phoebe', and one can clearly see that the phone's screen is completely blank. The phone isn't even turned on. (00:39:20)

Show generally

Other mistake: In 'The One with the Ick Factor' (Season One) Monica states that she is 26 years old. This episode takes place in 1994/95. However there are numerous other episodes such as 'The One With All The Thanksgivings' that show Monica and Rachel (who are the same age and in the same class) still being in High School in 1988. In 'The One Where The Stripper Cries' the two have to sneak into a college party in 1987 as they are still high school age. They should be at least 19 or 20 in 1987/88.

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Other mistake: The layout of the hotel surrounding the main cast's rooms as displayed during the sequence where Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe eavesdrop on Ross, Charlie, Rachael, and Joey is physically impossible. Ross enters the room Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe are in through the same wall they are using to listen in on Charlie and him, though while the camera is in Ross and Charlie's room, no door can be seen in that wall. Furthermore, a hallway can be seen through the doorway while Ross holds the door open, implying that the two rooms do not share a wall in the first place.

The One with the Butt - S1-E6

Other mistake: When Joey announces that he has a job in the new Al Pacino movie, Ross is holding a bottle of peach Snapple with part of its brand name whited out, so it reads "S pple" on the label.

The One Where Nana Dies Twice - S1-E8

Other mistake: When Ross is helping choose a dress and shoes for Nana to wear, he is behind the chest of drawers in the cupboard. He looks in a shoebox and finds lots of pink sweet'n low packets, then pulls down another box and lots of packets fall down on him. However, it is obvious that someone is above him showering the packets down, as they are coming from directly above him, not from on top of the door. (00:12:35)

The One with the Sonogram at the End - S1-E2

Other mistake: At the beginning when you see outside the museum, there's a man in a red t-shirt looking at the camera.

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Other mistake: Given her vegetarianism, and her disdain for fur in another episode, there's no way Phoebe would have wanted a pair of leather pants.

The One With The Home Study - S10-E7

Other mistake: In the opening scene Chandler smiles at Ross' joke while playing with the ball in his hands. Later on in the scene Ross cracks another joke and the exact same scene of Chandler smiling and fiddling with the ball is repeated. (00:00:40 - 00:01:10)

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Other mistake: Ross is a paleontologist but is seen working with the display on early humans which would be more of a job for an anthropologist.

The One With Ross's Inappropriate Song - S9-E7

Other mistake: When Chandler finds out that the video marked 'Monica' is just a football game he says, 'This may be the first time I have enjoyed football.' Although in 'TOW The Football' (season 3) he is quite happily watching the Thanksgiving Day game with Ross and Joey.

Suggested correction: Chandler has been shown in later episodes to simply watch the Thanksgiving Day game to avoid having to help out. It's likely that he actually wasn't enjoying the game but was just watching it to avoid helping.

The One with All the Poker - S1-E18

Other mistake: During the third game of poker, the bottle of raspberry Snapple on the table has part of its brand name whited out on the label.

The One With The Secret Closet - S8-E14

Other mistake: When Chandler stops by to see how Joey's doing after Rachel has moved out, Joey's holding a gallon jug of Minute Maid orange juice with its brand name partially painted to hide it, so it now reads "Vinut Vaio" on the label.

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

Other mistake: After Rachel takes the phone from Ross and hangs up on Julie, when she's sitting at the table there's a bottle of Evian water in front of Monica with part of its brand name covered - the letters "e" and "n" are whited out leaving "via" on the bottle.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Other mistake: The photo in Rachel's passport at the airport is not of her. (00:29:45)

The One With Two Parties - S2-E22

Other mistake: When Ross is at Monica's party getting Mr. Green's glasses and cigarettes he bumps into Mrs. Green and ends up having to come up with an alibi for the glasses and cigarettes. He then puts the glasses on, puts a cigarette in his mouth and says 'In fact I'm gonna go out into the hallway and fire up this bad boy'. At this point he walks past Rachel but he stops still as if frozen mid-step just before the shot cuts to him walking out into the hallway.

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 1 - S4-E23

Other mistake: When Phoebe tells Rachel that she thinks she can help her get over Ross, she starts by saying that she needs some photos of Ross. Rachel immediately starts walking towards the kitchen, walking right past the red box of photos on the table beside Phoebe (which she will pick up on her way back and then hand to Phoebe), before Phoebe even mentions the chocolate (and then glass of water) she also needs. It's obvious that Rachel is headed for the kitchen before she knows she needs to go there. (00:12:00)

The One Where Joey Speaks French - S10-E13

Other mistake: When Joey auditions near the end and Phoebe steps in to explain to the producer/audition guy, she speaks French and the subtitles say, 'He is a little bit retarted' instead of 'He is a little bit retarded.' (00:18:35)

Show generally

Other mistake: In almost every season when the friends are in the coffee shop, it shows a front view of Central Perk; and a lot of times, in different episodes, the same (unaging) lady with blonde curly hair is walking past the shop. There are also a couple of different episodes where two babies with red hair are being carried past the coffee shop.

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)

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.
