The One With The Giant Poking Device - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When Monica and Rachel are banging their heads against the wall, you can see someone in the background by the bathroom when Rachel walks away towards the living room in pain while saying, "if it isn't a headboard, it isn't worth it."

Correction: That is Phoebe talking on the phone.

The One With The Football - S3-E9

Corrected entry: When Monica and Ross are discussing why they are not allowed to play football, Monica states in the story that they were both 6. This would imply they are either twins or at least the same age. However, we see that Ross is in fact older than Monica. Also, later in the scene Monica and Ross say the football incident occurred 12 years ago. This would mean that they are both currently 18 years old which is false. In one episode earlier in the season Monica states that she is 28 years old. (00:02:20 - 00:04:10)

Correction: She doesn't say they were both six, she says the event happened in "Gellerbowl 6", ie. the 6th year of the "Gellerbowl".

The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Corrected entry: When Phoebe asks Monica what gets out hummus, Monica comes out of her bedroom. In the wide shot she's standing next to Ross, in the closeup he's suddenly holding her by the arm. (00:05:55)

Correction: You can see Ross putting his arm around Monica's.

The One With The Hypnosis Tape - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When Monica shows Chandler the check from Pete, Chandler says, "Pete Becker, Pete," and he grabs a magazine from his briefcase, but before this Chandler told the girls that he hasn't been able to unlock the briefcase and he just carries it around, so how would Chandler have gotten it out?

Correction: Chandler pulls the magazine from a pocket on the side of the briefcase.

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Corrected entry: In the scene when Phoebe gets back to the beach house, she is pouring herself a Margarita and instantly she goes from pouring it to holding it up.


Correction: There is a fairly long shot of Monica between the actions. So she could pick it up in that time.

The One With The Ultimate Fighting Champion - S3-E24

Corrected entry: When the friends are at Monica's to watch Pete compete for "Ultimate Fighting Champion," Ross is outside cooking hamburgers and puts one on Pheobe's plate. This is a mistake because Pheobe is a vegetarian.

Correction: It could be a Vegi burger. We have no way of knowing.

The One Where Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Rachel is eating at the diner and she and Monica are talking, there is a red glass sitting in front of her. In the next shot she is talking to Mark and says "It's not funny!" and the glass is gone; in the shot after that it's back again.


Correction: When Rachel and Mark are talking, Monica picks up a pitcher of water and you can see her reach for Rachel's glass. So, she is refilling it, that's why it's not there for a while.

The One With The Flashback - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In the flashback episode, Chandler and Monica are in the bar (which is soon to become Central Perk) and Rachel is in the same bar with her friends before she is due to marry Barry. When Chandler overhears Rachel - a complete stranger - say she wants one last fling, he tries to flirt with her, but she dismisses him. Monica then says "I know her" and talks to Rachel briefly with Chandler present.In fact, as revealed in later episodes, Chandler and Rachel knew each other when he was in college with Ross and Rachel was in high school with Monica - in fact they even made out at a college party.

Correction: Then the mistake is in subsequent episodes, not this one. In any case, Chandler simply didn't recognize Rachel.

The One Without The Ski Trip - S3-E17

Corrected entry: Surely Triple A could just locate the payphone that Phoebe was using to know where she was?

Correction: At the time this show aired, caller ID wasn't as wide spread as it is now, however even if they did have caller ID most pay phones come up blocked or private anyway. Even if they did have the number it won't give them the exact location - they aren't the police, so they just can't put a trace on a phone call.


The One Without The Ski Trip - S3-E17

Corrected entry: Near the end, when Ross and Rachel are arguing, Chandler jumps out and says, "Hey, guess who I am." Once he has said 'Hey', his mouth isn't moving at all. Also, he puts his cigarette in his mouth, so he can't be talking. (00:18:40)

Correction: It is entirely possible to speak with a cigarette in your mouth. And when you do, you don't move your lips much. There is nothing wrong with Chandler speaking his line like this.


The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break - S3-E15

Corrected entry: In the one where Rachel and Ross take a break, Rachel suggests that she and Ross take a break from dating each other. However, in later episodes she denies that they were ever on a break in the first place.

Correction: No, she doesn't deny that they were technically "on a break", she just doesn't feel that makes it any more acceptable for Ross to have gone off and slept with someone else whilst they were still trying to work things out.


The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Corrected entry: When Phoebe finds out that Phoebe at the beach is her birth mom, Phoebes twin Ursula never gets mentioned, not once. Since her birth mom hasn't seen either of them since they were born I would have thought she'd give some thought to her other daughter.

Correction: Throughout the episode we only see a couple of minutes of interaction between the Phoebes. Ursula could have been mentioned off camera.


The One With The Jam - S3-E3

Corrected entry: Ross slaps Chandler because he don't know that women talks about secrets with other women. But two episodes earlier (The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy) he replies to Ross' relating question with a yes. (00:21:40)

Correction: He doesn't slap Chandler because he doesn't know that women talk, he slaps Chandler because he knows this and still told Janice where he got the hug-and-roll thing from.

The One With The Flashback - S3-E6

Corrected entry: The English subtitles on the DVD state the last name of Barry is "Barber" - "Farber" is correct. (00:06:45)

Correction: That's a mistake made by the British subtitlers, not by the producers of the show.

The One Where Monica and Richard Are Just Friends - S3-E13

Corrected entry: Joey mentions that Jo has a crush on Laurie, but it is actually the other way around.

Correction: Character error. And quite in keeping with Joey's character.


The One Without The Ski Trip - S3-E17

Corrected entry: When the five of them are at the rest stop, Joey manages to get the cab door open. When Phoebe starts to reverse the car, you can tell the cab hasn't broke down as you can see the brake lights come on. No lights were on when the cab started moving. (00:11:10)

Correction: The car has run out of petrol but still has electrical power so the brake lights will operate. Phoebe starts the car and when it stops she put her foot on the brake. I don't see any mistake.


The One With The Ultimate Fighting Champion - S3-E24

Corrected entry: Near the end when Chandler is in a meeting, Stevens comes back later because he forgot his suitcase. If you look carefully, he picks up his suitcase and then puts it back down on the table on purpose. Also, when he leaves the room, you can see him turn around and hide out of shot waiting for his cue to come back in. (00:20:15)

Correction: Stevens is making an excuse to come back in because he wants the boss to spank him. All his actions are deliberate.


The One With The Flashback - S3-E6

Corrected entry: Just before Monica invites Joey in for lemonade, she says,"It's the heat. And the humidity." When she says this, if you look between the doorframe and the edge of the door, there is a crew member behind the door moving around. (00:11:00)

Correction: They live in a building with several apartments. The person in the hallway could have been another resident, a visitor to someone living there, a janitor or any number of people with a legitimate reason to wander around inside the building.


The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Corrected entry: When Chandler comes in after changing into his suit, you will notice he is not wearing a bow tie. In later shots in that scene the bow tie magically seems to appear.

Correction: No magic. If you watch Chandler after he changed and loses the chair to Joey, you'll notice he's not fully dressed. In the rest of the scene (when Monica is playing the message) you can see him buttoning his vest and holding his bowtie.

The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Corrected entry: Before the commercial break, Chandler isn't wearing a bow tie. After the break, the scene starts up right where it left off, and he's suddenly wearing one.

Correction: This scene does not pick up right where it left off, they are now all in the kitchen when they were in the living room before. Also if you watch carefully right when the scene begins you can see Chandler finish tying his bowtie, thus explaining why he has his tie on now and not before.
