The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Corrected entry: When Joey slides the gift for Kathy across the bar, you can see in the bathroom that a towel is hung over the shower curtain rod, however in the shot when Chandler is saying goodnight to Kathy, the towel is gone. No-one went into the bathroom.


Correction: The camera angle is different when Chandler is saying goodnight so we have a different view. If you watch carefully, you can see the towel is still there, we can just see the edge of it.


The One With Chandler In A Box - S4-E8

Corrected entry: During the scene when Phoebe tells Ross and Chandler she has to call her mom to ask her a left handed cooking question, the television behind Phoebe goes on and off between shots.

Correction: I've checked and it most definitely doesn't. It's on all the time.


The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Corrected entry: In the very first episode, Chandler says that between him and Joey they haven't had a relationship that lasted longer than a Mento. In this episode however, we find out that Joey went out with Angela Delveccio for three years.

Correction: That was in the first episode. Joey has a playboy image so Chandler probably didn't even know or ask. It's highly unlikely that Joey was with only one girl for those three years, so Chandler's point would still be valid.


The One Where Chandler Crosses The Line - S4-E7

Corrected entry: After Cathy gets off the phone with Joey, she puts the phone on the counter. A few shots later, when she starts to leave, the phone is on the receiver. After Cathy and Chandler kiss, the phone is back on the counter.


Correction: Sorry, I've watched this scene very carefully and the phone handset is standing upright on the counter during the whole time.


The One Where Chandler Crosses The Line - S4-E7

Corrected entry: When Ross is playing his keyboard for the gang, he presses a note twice and gets a single note. The next time he presses the keyboard the accompaniment starts automatically. Ross would have had to press a settings button to get the accompaniment to start automatically on a keyboard note press. However, we don't see Ross press any settings buttons.

Correction: The shot switches to the gang at least twice after the single notes and before the accompaniment kicks in. Ross would have had enough time to press a button during these moments.


But if he was always going to play them the same song, why wouldn't the arrangement start straight away instead of just the time when Chandler says 'oh my god play'. He then completely switches keys which also makes no sense.

The One With Chandler In A Box - S4-E8

Corrected entry: At the end, when everyone is on the balcony watching Chandler and Kathy, Monica sees a guy robbing a purse, and Joey goes to call the police. When he comes back, he has the phone, but he says nothing, even though he came back way too quickly to have made the call.

Correction: Calls to most emergency services will start with a recorded message or if you are very unlucky, the busy signal. We see Joey for a very short time and it's very plausible that he's waiting to be connected.


The One With The Invitation - S4-E21

Corrected entry: When the gang minus Rachel receives their invitations, Phoebe states that Ross let Ben address hers, and shows the rest of them. We see that the envelope has a full address consisting of four lines. Chandler then enters, and about 10 seconds later we see Phoebe's invitation again, this time only having an address consisting of one line.

Correction: Look carefully at Phoebe all through this scene. We see Phoebe with her invitation, and it has her name and address on. She then takes off this envelope AND PUTS IT IN HER LAP. Inside this envelope is ANOTHER envelope with just her name on. The addressed envelope stays in her lap for the duration of the scene, and when we see the envelope with one line, this is the 2nd envelope.

The One With The 'Cuffs - S4-E3

Corrected entry: When Joey is reading the newspaper while Chandler and Rachel as discussing Joanna, a blue and white cup appears in front of him.


Correction: The cup doesn't just appear, it's the same cup that was in Chandlers hand earlier which he puts on the counter.


The One With The 'Cuffs - S4-E3

Corrected entry: After Rachel sees her boss Joanna in the guys' apartment, Joey's bedroom door is shown shut, but is open in a subsequent shot, though no one went near it.


Correction: The door we see is actually Chandler's bedroom door and since Joanna is inside (we saw her go in), she could have opened it.


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

Corrected entry: In the scene where Rachel is on the plane telling the guy across the aisle about the history of her and Ross, the guy sitting beside her interrupts and says something like, "You are a horrible horrible person". If you look at his watch throughout the scene, it switches from having a leather strap (brown or black), to having a metal band, and then back again.

Correction: His watch consistently has a dark leather strap, it never changes.

The One Where Chandler Crosses The Line - S4-E7

Corrected entry: In the episode where Chandler tells Joey that he kissed Joey's girlfriend Cathy, Chandler walks in and tells Joey that he wants to talk. Joey says OK and turns off the TV. After Chandler tells Joey what happened, Joey is angry and says "I will not watch your TV" and turns the TV off again.

Correction: Joey only pushes the 'Mute' on the TV the first time, he doesn't switch it off altogether.


The One With All The Wedding Dresses - S4-E20

Corrected entry: The wedding dress Rachel wears in the pilot is extremely similar if not the same dress she wears in The One With All The Wedding Dresses (season four).

Correction: It's meant to be - she kept the original dress from her wedding (she arrives wearing it).

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

Corrected entry: Rachel and Phoebe are in the girls apartment and Phoebe tells Rachel to bring her some tepid water, a piece of chocolate and some photos of Ross. In one shot she is holding the water and chocolate, but in the next, a box of photos appears as well.

Correction: In the side shot we see her reaching down as she gets to Phoebe - a close look at the table and you can see that she's picking up the photo box, it's just hidden behind Phoebe.

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

Corrected entry: In the episode 'TOW All The Wedding Dresses', Monica picks up Emily's wedding gown for her at the bridal shop and then wears it for most of the episode. However, in the episode 'TOW Ross's Wedding', Emily is seen wearing a completely different dress.

Correction: Emily is wearing the same dress that Monica picks up, only Emily wears a jacket over the dress. The dress also appears to have had some beading added to match the jacket, but it's otherwise identical.

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.

Correction: I agree, she reacts to it being used on her behalf as she also gestures to herself, she also answers to this nickname in many previous episodes before this statement is made and although the joke is funny they would have been better off using it earlier than season 4.

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 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 Girl From Poughkeepsie - S4-E10

Rachel: No accountants. Oh, and no one from, like, "legal." I don't like guys with boring jobs.
Chandler: Oh, and Ross was like what, a lion tamer?

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
