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

Other mistake: When Emily first walks in wearing her wedding dress, there is a distinctive difference between that dress and the one Monica picked up from the store a few episodes earlier and tried on (yes, more than that she is also wearing a jacket). There is a band of material at the top of the dress when Emily is wearing it that was not there when Monica wore it.

The One with the Monkey - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: Just before the opening credits, when Ross says, "That's 'pathet', which is Sanskrit for 'really cool way to live', " Marcel is sitting on Ross's left shoulder in the closeup, but in the next shot the monkey is suddenly sitting on his right shoulder, right before Ross walks off screen.

Suggested correction: That's Phoebe not a crew member. She walked to the bathroom after her comment about the name Bethel (00:00:25).

The One With Rachel's Crush - S4-E13

Other mistake: Monica supposedly single-handedly changed over the guys' apartment from carpet to polished hardwood in two days. There's no way that someone of her size could have moved all that furniture solo (Rachel didn't help since she's totally surprised), stripped off all the carpet, sanded the wood, stained the wood, let it dry, and then replaced all the furniture, in two days.

The One With The Fake Party - S4-E16

Factual error: Phoebe says in the show that she's three months pregnant. Not only is she way too big for that, but the fetus also kicks for the first time. Women don't feel fetal movement until 16 weeks at the earliest, and for a first pregnancy it may not be until 25 weeks or so.

Suggested correction: Phoebe's size could partially be explained in that she was carrying triplets, though Lisa Kudrow was pregnant in real life, and was further along than her character. Her pregnancy had to be written into the show and the gestation timelines did not match up. Phoebe feeling "movement" could just be her imagination, as her character is supposedly somewhat psychic and often perceives things that are not necessarily discernible to others or isn't even real.

Suggested correction: Chandler's suit changes because he's wearing different ones over multiple days. He attempts to fire Nina, then chickens out, then tries again on another day and fails, then finally musters the courage to do so on a third attempt after his boss confronts him.

No, if you watch the scene you will see that on the second attempt the suit changes colour between camera angles. This is not because it is different days.

I just streamed it again. I don't see that the suit changes color from grey to green, but it does look different when seen from either the front or the back view. However, it looks like this is just from the set lighting. There's a strong light source coming from the left-hand side that makes Chandler's suit look lighter from the back. The front is more shadowed.

Suggested correction: He wears the same suit throughout the scene, but the light hits it differently when he moves around the office.


The One With The Giant Poking Device - S3-E8

Factual error: The "very long poking device" that the friends fashion out of chopsticks would never actually work. It has vulnerable points every half-foot or so (the length of the chopsticks) and after a certain point would just break or sag under its own weight at one of the vulnerable points.

The One With Joey's New Girlfriend - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Ross goes to Amanda's house for a date you see her two children sitting on the couch. The little boy with blonde hair is sitting down, when it cuts to Ross and Amanda talking the boy is standing up on the couch, the next shot he's sat down as Amanda walks out the door.

The One With The Screamer - S3-E22

Factual error: Rachel's date yells at the theater patrons who are in the gang's seats; one of them has D13, and he screams "you're surrounded by even numbers, does that give you some clue?" However, the establishing shot shows they're at the Lucille Lortel Theater, which has odd-numbered seats on the left - the side they're sitting on. It is also a relatively small house and doesn't have a D13; the outermost seat in that row is D9. (00:04:50 - 00:05:30)


The One Where Underdog Gets Away - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When the six are looking out the window at Ugly Naked Guy cooking his turkey, they are looking straight across the alley into his window. In "TOW The Giant Poking Device", Ugly Naked Guy's apartment is several floors below theirs in the adjoining building.

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.
