Show generally

Corrected entry: During one of the Las Vegas episodes Phoebe insinuates that she has been married in Vegas before. We know she divorced Duncan, the gay ice dancer, but we never hear mention of her divorcing this mystery man she supposedly married in Vegas. In season 10 she marries Mike Hannigan, so this would be an illegal marriage and make Pheebs a bigamist.

Correction: She might have gotten a divorce immediately once she found out that Las Vegas marriages are for real.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The outside shot they use of Monica's building is wrong as it shows them to be on a corner block with buildings adjoining on either side. However, Monica's apartment has windows on 3 side - kitchen, living room and bedrooms.

Gail Field

Correction: The kitchen window is at an angle and not really on the 3rd side of the building so the the apartment really only has windows on two sides.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The outside shot they use for Monica's building cannot be their building as on no floor is there a balcony, which Monica's apartment has.

Gail Field

Correction: We're never shown a 360 degree view of the building. The balcony could be on the other side. And since Joey and Chandler's apartment didn't have one, the shot of the building could be of their side.


Show generally

Corrected entry: Throughout the series, the intercom buzzer to get into the apartment building is used sporadically. In some episodes, people have to be let into the building by communicating through the intercom; in others, the visitors suddenly appear knocking at the door.

Correction: As was demonstrated by Phoebe in the one where Monica gets shouted at for her review of Allesandros restaurant, if someone is leaving the building they may just hold the door open for someone trying to get in.


Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode where Phoebe's grandmother keeps lying to Phoebe about her father, Phoebe goes to visit her father and tells Joey and Chandler that, 'What if he's not this great dad. What if he's still the same guy who ran out on my mom and us before we were born.' But in the episode where Phoebe meets her dad at her grandmother's funeral, her father talks about how he burnt the formula, and put on Phoebe and Ursula's diapers backwards. Thus Phoebe and Ursula must have been born before Frank left.

Correction: Phoebe could have easily been told that Frank Sr had left before she and Ursula had been born and not realised he had left when she was a young baby. Her grandmother did tell a lot of lies about Frank so she may have been the one to tell Phoebe this as it may seem less hurtful.
