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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

Super Grover

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.

Anastasios Anastasatos

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.

xx:xx:xx

Brad

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

A Demon

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

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.

A Demon

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.

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.

STP

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.

Phixius

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.

Chaz1003

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

Corrected entry: One best man (Joey) walks down the aisle with the mother of the bride and the other (Chandler) comes in with Monica which is completely wrong. The best man (or men) should be at the front of the venue with the groom - they are there to support him.

Correction: And there "should" be only one best man. There aren't any laws in weddings, so Ross can change it however he wants.

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

Corrected entry: In the beginning, all the girls are eating sandwiches in the kitchen, Monica has a sandwich in her hand in some shots, but not in others.

ACertainShadeofGreen

Correction: But we see her pick it up and put it down in between shots.

The One With Rachel's Crush - S4-E13

Corrected entry: When Monica is talking to Rachel in the hall, when carrying in the vacuum cleaner, she is right in front of apartment 19. When Rachel opens the door to apartment 20 Monica doesn't appear to be there.

Correction: From the angle we have, it's not possible to tell if Monica is there or not.

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.

Pam-I-am

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.

tw_stuart

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.

Jon Sandys

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.

ACertainShadeofGreen

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

tw_stuart

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.

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.

Pam-I-am

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

tw_stuart

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.

Ral0618

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.

tw_stuart

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.

Tambil

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: 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 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.

Mistakes

When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding.
