The One With Phoebe's Uterus - S4-E11

Corrected entry: When Phoebe goes to visit her birth mother in Montauk, her mom says "I wish someone would've been there to tell me how terrible it is to give up babies". The scene cuts to a shot of Phoebe holding the puppy, revealing a side view of a stand-in, not the actress playing her mom.

Correction: It is indeed Teri Garr in the side shot, not a stand-in.

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Corrected entry: At the end of the scene where the duck is taking a bath, the bucket is on the old carpet. Monica removed the carpet in Season 4 episode 13.

Correction: There are two versions with the shots of the duck bathing in the bucket - the DVD version and the widescreen version (such as on Netflix). In both versions, when the guys are at the vet's office they're remembering past fun times with the duck, which includes the memory of the duck bathing. In the widescreen version, the last scene from the DVD has been cut and instead we just see a continuance of the earlier "memory" of the duck bathing, hence once again we see the old carpeting and also the guys' canoe.

The One With The Invitation - S4-E21

Corrected entry: Phoebe shows Ross' invitation to everyone, stating "Ross let Ben address mine." The envelope has poor kid like handwriting. The address is a 4 line address and the invitation also has stamps on it. When the camera comes back to Phoebe, she's holding an envelope with just her name on it, with no stamps. When she puts down the envelope by her side, the 4 line address is back. (00:11:30)

Makes Sense

Correction: Yes, there are two larger envelopes, but they are not meant to be the same envelope, it's wedding invitation etiquette. The actual invitation itself is inserted in the "inner envelope" with only Phoebe's name written on it (or as 'Phoebe and friend'), and this inner envelope is inserted in the "outside envelope" along with the reply card (in the small envelope), and it's the outside envelope which is stamped and addressed to Phoebe ("4 line address"). We even see Phoebe holding both larger envelopes while removing the reply card's small envelope, just as Monica says, "This is so amazing," and also see them when Rachel opens her own envelope.

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 1 - S4-E23

Corrected entry: Emily, Ross and Monica walk past a black door, the shot changes to in front of them and back. When it goes back, the door is now a cream colour. (00:05:20)

A Demon Premium member

Correction: None of the doors they pass are "cream colour" - every door they pass is black. It's all the window and door trim that are cream.

The One Where Chandler Crosses The Line - S4-E7

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the episode, when Chandler comes into the apartment to talk to Joey about his kiss with Kathy, Joey turns the TV off and places the remote on the counter. However, the TV is suddenly back on after Joey asks, "Is that why you bought all this stuff?" (referring to the furniture), and then Joey turns it off again manually. (00:17:10)

Correction: When Joey uses the remote he only mutes the TV's sound, and in the widescreen version we can see that "Wonder Woman" is still playing on the TV, then later Joey turns off the TV manually.

The One With All The Haste - S4-E19

Corrected entry: In this episode the chain on Rachel and Monica's apartment door is very long, but in "The One with the Late Thanksgiving" in Season 10, the chain is much shorter, causing Joey to get his head stuck.

Correction: The door to Monica and Chandler's had to be replaced while they were on their honeymoon. Phoebe and Joey called the super and told them they smelled has coming from the apartment. The fire department breaks the door down. This could be when the chain was replaced.

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 1 - S4-E23

Corrected entry: The wedding is threatened because Ross, Emily, and Monica discover that the location has been torn down a few days early. However, when one plans an event, especially a wedding, one puts down a deposit to hold the location, signs a contract, and has all of that in writing. The church would not have allowed the tear-down to happen early as they'd be in breach of contract for accepting money and then allowing the church to be torn down before the wedding. And if they had broken the contract, Monica would have been screaming about it and demanding a refund.

Correction: They decided very fast to get married. They didn't have a place and they were just going to check that place. Maybe they were hoping to close the deal that day.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Corrected entry: For the game, there are 16 questions - 8 for each gender. When Ross says they have a tie, there are about 5 questions left on the board. Ross then goes to the Lightning Round and completely forgets about the other 5 questions. (00:07:30)

Brad Premium member

Correction: Ross says from the start that each team will answer ten questions. Ross has just made up more, in case one category is more popular than the others.

The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Corrected entry: When Ross is kissing the dirty girl on her sofa, he calls her Sarah. Then, when he kills the rat on her coffee table and thinks it was her hamster, he calls her Shelley.

Correction: Actually, he calls her Cheryl both times, which is the correct name of the character played by Rebecca Romijn.

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Corrected entry: In the scene where Joey tells Ross that the stripper stole the wedding ring, when Chandler says, "So you might say, it's a magic ring", you can see Joey starts laughing in the background. In the next shot he starts laughing again. (00:12:30)

Correction: This simply does not occur. Joey is never in the background during this scene. He is always located in front of Chandler and only laughs when Chandler makes the "magic" comment once.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Corrected entry: During the guys' lightning round, when they give an incorrect answer they are given a new question. The girls however have to keep guessing at what Chandler's job is, even though Rachel has given an incorrect answer.

Correction: Rachel answers just in time and the answer is wrong so there was no time for a new question.

The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Corrected entry: When Ross is making out with Cheryl in her apartment, he gets chocolate syrup on his fingers. In the following shots the chocolate syrup has disappeared.

Correction: If you look carefully you can see he wipes it off in the sofa.

A Demon Premium member

Yeah but it's still silly, you wouldn't be able to get chocolate syrup completely off your hand without washing it or wiping it with a wet cloth or baby wipe.

The One Where They're Going To PARTY! - S4-E9

Corrected entry: When Monica and Phoebe show the others the van, they are all standing on the curb. There is then a close up of Ross saying something and back to the wide shot. But now, Ross is standing in the road without having taken a step forward.

Correction: Having just watched this episode, I can say that Ross starts to step down, camera cuts, then back to Ross and he's on the road.

The One With Phoebe's Uterus - S4-E11

Corrected entry: When Phoebe is considering carrying her brother's babies, her mother gives her a puppy to look after. Chandler seems very comfortable with this puppy. However, in Series 7, when Phoebe brings a dog back to Monica's apartment, Chandler says he is terrified of dogs - especially puppies.

Correction: He doesn't seem very comfortable, he just doesn't make a visible reaction. Judging by the dialogue in season seven he hasn't wanted anyone to know about his fear of dogs, so naturally he would try to act as if the dog didn't bother him in season four.

The One With The Free Porn - S4-E17

Corrected entry: When the doctor is explaining to Phoebe about the triplets she says that "giving birth to three babies is not that different than giving birth to one". However, most triplets are born prematurely and by Caesarian section (which the doctor doesn't mention).

Correction: This mistake is self correcting. The Doctor was expressing her professional opinion that 'giving birth' (i.e. naturally, not by caesarian) to three babies was not much different to giving birth to one. The likelihood of a premature birth could easily have been discussed at an earlier stage.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Corrected entry: Phoebe takes a positive pregnancy test right after she gets implanted with the embryos. There's no test in the world that can tell that fast if someone is pregnant - even the best tests take at least a week after conception.

Correction: Phoebe explains before she takes the first pregnancy test that her body's "always been a little faster than Western medicine". It's a deliberate joke.

A deliberate joke it may be, but we all know Phoebe believes a lot of silly things, and this is one of them. It really didn't make sense for her to get a positive result that fast.

The One With Joey's Dirty Day - S4-E14

Corrected entry: Phoebe goes to Rachel, and to comfort her says "Ah Pheebs," and acts surprised when Rachel tells her that Pheebs is short for her name and is not just what they call each other. However, in the previous episode, The One With Rachel's Crush, Rachel says "Mr. Pheebs" and we see Phoebe obviously happy that Rachel has used her nickname as her false identity.

Correction: How do we know what Phoebe's happy about? Perhaps she just thinks it's a good choice, given that (to her way of thinking) it's a pet name the girls use for each other.

The One With All The Rugby - S4-E15

Corrected entry: When Chandler is at the airport with Janice there is a last call announcement for his flight to Yemen, and Yemen being mentioned as the destination in the announcement. However there is no such city as Yemen (the capital of Yemen is San'a) and the destination of a flight should be the destination city, not the country.

Correction: Yemen is a small country. If there is only one destination within Yemen, then it would make sense to use the country's name.

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

Corrected entry: When Rachel is on the plane, it is shown from the outside to be a Boeing 747. When they get inside it shows only 2 seats over by the window. A 747 has a seating configuration of 3-4-3, with 3 seats by the window.

Correction: Virgin Atlantic uses 2-4-2 in Premium Economy, so 3-4-3 is not a rule, although it's the most common in economy on a 747. Surely the set is not an exact copy of a real plane, but the seating configuration is ok.

The One With All The Rugby - S4-E15

Corrected entry: When Ross, Emily, Phoebe and Joey go back to the coffeehouse after Ross gets the crap beaten out of him, he says to Emily: "are you kidding? I just made a man twice my size cry. I haven't done that since I was four and I washed my Dad's Porsche with rocks." But in series two when Richard has a 'twinkie in the city'(Monica), Jack Gellar comments on how "I turned fifty, I got the Porsche, you've got your own little speedster." If Jack Gellar was fifty when Ross was four, that would make him around seventy-six. He's looking pretty good for a seventy-six year old man isn't he?.

Correction: It is entirely possible that Jack had a different Porsche when Ross was four years old.
