Suggested correction: Just because it's not shown on screen doesn't mean it's not there still. If it had been shown prior to this episode, and suddenly stopped, that could be considered a mistake. But it's never shown.

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: In the series nine episode with the 'hot' nanny, at the end when Rachel is on the veranda/balcony thing with Gavin, before he says 'I do have feelings for you', the shot is over the shoulder and he has his hand on the wall of the balcony, when the shot switches to the front angle his hand is by his side. (00:20:55)

Show generally

Factual error: This is a mistake for two of Ross' three marriages. Ross wasn't even actually "married" either time. With Emily, he goes through the ceremony of the marriage and then Emily immediately disappears. You're not actually married until the certificate is signed and sent in, with the signatures of the witnesses. Which was not happening after that disaster of a wedding. Nor were there any witnesses filling out and sending in certificates after the drunk Vegas wedding either.

Suggested correction: The certificate of marriage is signed and sent in by the person performing the ceremony, and he asked if they wanted to continue with the marriage and it was completed. Secondly the marriage to Rachel they discuss how they paid witnesses to the wedding. I believe they mention Elvis?

Suggested correction: At the Vegas wedding, the chapel likely provided witnesses who took care of the paperwork.

The One With The Dollhouse - S3-E20

Other mistake: The dollhouse is only partially burned when Ross takes it into the bathroom to extinguish it. When he shows it to Phoebe it's completely blackened and destroyed. He and Monica wouldn't have just let it burn; they would have extinguished it ASAP, and there's no reason why that wouldn't have been fast if they doused it in the shower.

The One with the Candy Hearts - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When Ross comes back from asking out his neighbour at the counter, he has his hand open at one point, pointing down, but then apparently smashes the egg on Chandler. It's clear he never had the egg in his hand as there is no mess on Chandler's vest top either.

Suggested correction: It was in his pocket.


Suggested correction: You need to watch the background - when the girls are talking to Joey and Chandler you can see he puts it in his inside jacket pocket on his left side.

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Other mistake: In "TOW the cheap wedding dress" the whole episode is about how Chandler wants "The Swing Kings" to play at the wedding, because, at their concert, that is where he realised that Monica was the woman he wanted to dance all his dances with, and Monica goes to great lengths to secure the band. In this episode, the band at the wedding is actually called "Jungle Swing".

Suggested correction: So the band changed their name in the interim. It happens.

The One With The Home Study - S10-E7

Continuity mistake: When Mike says "I am going to make this decision for us. What do you think we should do?" he is holding the check. The very next shot shows the charity worker taking the check off the desk and giving it back even though Mike never put it down. (00:20:35)


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.
