Friends

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the early episodes there is a wooden post in front of the door at Monica's apartment. Remember when Monica and Rachel were looking after Ben and Monica bangs his head - Ross shouts "Monica bang" and runs into it. The post doesn't appear in later series.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Factual error: When Rachel is boarding the plane to Paris, the plane's right hand side is being used for boarding. However in all airlines all over the world, they always use the left side for boarding. The right side is a 'service' side.

The One With The Bullies - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: When the bullies are about to fight with Chandler and Ross, they decide to put all watches and keys into a hat. He takes the hat off and places it down and everyone puts the watches and keys in. The shot changes to a further out view and the bully has a different hat on his head while another hat is still placed where he put it. When there is a closer view of him, there is once again no hat on his head. (00:19:30)

The One In Massapequa - S8-E18

Continuity mistake: In The One In Massapequa, Jack Gellar is eating food off a stick. When he finishes he holds the stick while Rachel asks Jack if he has any pearls of wisdom. We can see the stick over Judy's shoulder. In the next shot the stick is gone from his hand, then we see Judy put it down on a table, then it reappears in his hand, before disappearing for good.

Suggested correction: It's your opinion that Phoebe wouldn't have wanted leather pants, but that's not true of all vegetarians. Natalie Merchant was known for saying she was a vegetarian but still wore leather shoes. I was a vegetarian who would never have worn fur and still wore leather shoes.

The One With The Stain - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: When Monica asks Brenda to clean the top of the cabinets so that she can get a look at her crotch, Brenda drags a chair over (with both hands) to stand on. In the next shot, she is magically holding a feather duster. (00:11:40)

The One With The Halloween Party - S8-E6

Factual error: This show is set in October (it's a Halloween party). Rachel's stomach is completely flat, but according to the show, she got pregnant in April (It's stated several times by the characters on the show that Monica and Chandler's wedding was in May, and we learn in "The One With The Red Sweater" that she got pregnant a month before the wedding. Hence, April). However, by October she should have a six months' pregnant belly, which is no way resembles the perfectly flat belly she shows.

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
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?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
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 Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying, "I knew it!" When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy, and it is a big deal!" is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
