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.
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?
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.Pam-I-am
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.
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.
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.
Corrected entry: How is it possible for Phoebe's ex-partner to use the Smelly Cat song for a kitty litter jingle when a record company made Smelly Cat into a song/video in the Second Season's TOW Eddie Moves In? Surely there was a contract involved between Phoebe and the record company granting the record company the rights?
Corrected entry: Chandler claims to have hidden Joey's underwear because "he stole my essence." But Chandler didn't go out of the apartment to do this, meaning the only time he could have done it was when he was over there first, and he wouldn't have done because there was no incentive to do so as Joey hadn't taken the cushions off the chair.David Mercier
Corrected entry: At the fight Ross walks up with a very big drink and a even bigger tub of popcorn, however you never see it again after that shot. It can't be on the floor, they would have stepped on it, and considering the size of it, you should have been able to see it.Pam-I-am
Corrected entry: This episode takes place one year before the pilot (Rachel was supposed to get married in one year in the flashback and the pilot started on the day of her wedding). But in this episode, Ross finds out that Carol is a lesbian. However, not until the 2nd or 3rd episode does he find out she's pregnant. For this to make sense, either she had a really long pregnancy or else they continued sleeping together for a year after she came out (not likely).
Corrected entry: In this episode Monica and Rachel babysit for Ben, and Monica accidentally bumps his head on a beam/pole separating the kitchen and the living room. However, as far as I can recall, we never see this beam/pole prior to or after this particular episode. (I'm referring to the one in the middle of the room, not the one against the wall).
Corrected entry: In 'The One With The Flashback' (episode 6, third series) Rachel appears to meet Chandler for the first time while celebrating her engagement to Barry, in the bar which was later to become the coffee house. In 'The One With The Thanksgivings' (episode 8, fifth series) it is apparent that she has already met Chandler twice at Ross and Monica's parents' house, once at Thanksgiving 1987 and once in Thanksgiving 1988.
Corrected entry: Chandler claims that he steals Joeys underwear BECAUSE Joey stole his "essence" however, the only time Chandler goes into his apartment is to get changed, which is before Joey steals the "essence" of the chair, thus Chandler would have had to steal Joey's underwear before Joey takes the chair cushions, not because of it
