The One With The Birth Mother - S10-E9

Corrected entry: One of the storylines in this episode is based on Joey not being willing to share food. However in previous episodes he has happily shared food several times.

Correction: Joey is unwilling to share food unexpectedly, i.e. In season 5 episode 20 he is only willing to share a bite of his sandwich to prove how much Chandler means to him. In this episode he is suggested to order an extra chips to share and he happily accepts it, even though that would still be sharing food.

The One Where Rachel's Sister Babysits - S10-E5

Corrected entry: No piercing studio in the world would pierce the ears (or any other body part) of a one year old without consent of the parents.

Correction: It's true that piercing studios will likely require consent, but if Jill just said, "this is my daughter," I doubt they'd have a policy of requiring a birth certificate or anything.

The One With Phoebe's Wedding - S10-E12

Corrected entry: Orchids in Swedish is orkidéer, not lorkins. In fact, lorkins means nothing in Swedish.

Correction: It may just be that the Swedish guy is just mispronouncing 'orchids' with his Swedish accent.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Corrected entry: The color of the keys laid down at the end of the episode by each friend corresponds to the colored dots between the letters in the Friends title (red, yellow, and blue).


Correction: The keys are in fact (in no particular order) : purple, blue, black, red, bronze, and bronze.

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Corrected entry: When Monica Geller tries to get a rematch on the race, Chandler Bing says they left -- but no door sound was heard.

Correction: Just because you don't hear a door close doesn't mean it didn't. They were playing a game and cheering and carrying on so it is perfectly conceivable that people could leave without being noticed.


Plus they probably shut the door very quietly so no one would notice them leaving.

The One With The Late Thanksgiving - S10-E8

Corrected entry: Surely the adoption office won't have anyone in it on Thanksgiving. Why do they get a call then from them. (00:20:40)

Correction: It's not that strange that someone would be in on Thanksgiving. In one episode Chandler and the people in his office had to work on Christmas eve and New Year's eve, so why couldn't the adoption office have someone there on Thanksgiving?


The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Corrected entry: In the airport Ross says "I really thought she'd stay". After he says this when the camera zooms out the cut between the carpet and the set floor is very visible. (00:19:50)

Correction: This is not a mistake; terminals are set up this way, carpeted at the gate and tiled in the walkways.

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Corrected entry: Towards the start, when Chandler, Monica and Phoebe are listening through the walls, when they are listening to Rachel and Joey, and the camera slides "through" one room to another, you can see Phoebe's hand in front of the wall section that is in between the two rooms.

Correction: At no point does this happen. I have just watched this episode.

The Last One (1) - S10-E19

Corrected entry: The foosball table must be magical - the chick and duck double in size after they're rescued as compared to when Joey first shows Phoebe earlier that day. (00:05:30)


Correction: I just watched this episode and they don't double in size.

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Corrected entry: In Rachel's hotel room, there is a door on the left of the wall that joins onto Monica and Chandler's room. Due to the layout of the rooms, the only place it could lead to is Monica and Chandler's room. However, when Ross is talking to Rachel and she's looking for Joey, she walks through this door and has a quick look around. Surely she would see Joey in there, or at least Monica, Chandler and Phoebe and ask if they knew where Joey was?

Correction: The door that leads to Monica and Chandler's room is on the right of Rachel's bed - we see Joey get dragged through it, and the camera pans "through" it shortly afterwards, when all the friends are listening to Ross and Rachel. Rachel looks through a door which is on the far left of the bed; this is presumably the bathroom. Rather bizarre it doesn't occur to Rachel that Joey might have just gone through the other door, but she's never been the brightest woman.

The One With Rachel's Going Away Party - S10-E16

Corrected entry: When packing up the spare room in Monica and Chandler's apartment, the boys find a pair of fluffy handcuffs in the wardrobe. Monica and Chandler painted the room and inside the wardrobe when Rachel moved out; wouldn't they have found them then?

Correction: We have no evidence of Monica and Chandler painting the wardrobe, so they wouldn't have found them.

The One With Princess Consuela - S10-E14

Corrected entry: At the end when Ross is at Monica and Chandler's waiting for Rachel to return from dinner, it is still light outside.


Correction: How is this a mistake?

The One With Phoebe's Wedding - S10-E12

Corrected entry: At the end when Ross is trying to get the dog to go to the bathroom, you can see the shadow of the trainer of the dog over the ground, getting the dog to run around everywhere.

Correction: There is no shadow.

The One With The Birth Mother - S10-E9

Corrected entry: Joey can read Phoebe's mind! Joey asks for the phone number of Phoebe's friend. Phoebe gives Joey a pen. He writes the name of the girlfriend on his hand and gives the pen back. Phoebe never tells him the phone number.A couple of scenes later, Joey is having dinner with that girl.

Correction: Obviously time has passed since the first scene, Therefore it is very likely Pheobe could have given it Joey after she noticed the mistake or vice versa.

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Corrected entry: When Phoebe tells Monica and Chandler that Rachel and Joey are kissing in the next room, at the time she says "It's Rachel and Joey.", you can see that the door leading to their room has been partially cut to achieve the effect of the camera going through the wall. (00:01:40)

Correction: The door hasn't been cut, it's the mirror that's hanging on the door. You see this when Monica switches walls with Phoebe. You also can see Phoebe pausing to look in the mirror.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Corrected entry: The whole plot line of Rachel getting off the plane is most definitely impossible in post-9/11 America. Regulations consider any passengers that get off the plane after they've boarded to be security risks. When Phoebe gets Rachel talking about something wrong with the plane, causing panic, all those panicked passengers would have been stopped, and Rachel likely would have been questioned for the suspicious nature of that phone conversation. Likewise, when Rachel goes running off the plane, she at best would have been forcibly stopped and questioned, and at worst would have been shot, like the mentally ill guy in Miami in early 2006.

Correction: It isn't just Rachel, almost all of the passengers begin to complain, we are not shown them actually leaving the plane, so we would expect that the crew would see that nobody at all was compfortable to fly.

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Corrected entry: When Ross walks into Monica and Chandler's hotel room, he is packed much earlier than both Monica and Chandler. However, in the episode after Monica and Chandler get married, Ross only signs out of the hotel a few minutes before check-out time. This is also implied by other characters who say that he does that all the time.

Correction: Being packed doesn't mean he will check out immediately.


The One With Phoebe's Wedding - S10-E12

Corrected entry: Just after Monica tells Phoebe to be at the rehearsal dinner at 18h00 her phone rings and she answers it "Gellar here". She has been married to Chandler since season 7, surely she means "Bing."

Correction: Completely in line with Monica's character that she would continue to refer to herself by her maiden name or alternatively a completely plausible character mistake. Monica also states that she never changed her name in a later episode. (The One With Princess Consuela).


The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Corrected entry: Rachel is heading off to Paris to work for Louis Vuitton. Isn't it fitting that every piece of her luggage is made by Louis Vuitton, sporting the distinctive brown and gold LV design.


Correction: It would make perfect sense for Louis Vuitton to give their new employee, who is moving accross the ocean to work for them, a full set of luggage.

The One With The Birth Mother - S10-E9

Corrected entry: In 10-9, The One With The Birth Mother, Erika hands Monica and Chandler a sonagram picture. Would they not see that she is carrying two babies on the sonagram? In the episode where Erika is giving birth, neither she nor Monica nor Chandler know that she is expecting twins.

Correction: It is possible that one baby was behind the other and couldn't be seen by the sonogram, this happens very commonly.


The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene when Phoebe breaks into the other Phoebe's house and gets caught, the older Phoebe was telling the younger one that the man in the photo is not Frank Buffay, but is Chuck Mangioni. Right after that, as Phoebe 2 walks towards the camera, you can see that the door behind her moves open, and there is a visible shadow of someone who walks by that doorway. (00:19:00)

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.
