The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Corrected entry: When Phoebe and Chandler are about to kiss there is a bottle of wine and two glasses on the counter. It then cuts to a view of Phoebe with no bottle or glasses on the counter, just a phone, and then later in the same scene it cuts back to Phoebe again and there are two glasses and a bottle of wine again.

Correction: The wine bottle and two glasses are on the counter between the phone and the end of the counter, and the reason we don't see the wine bottle/glasses is because Phoebe's blocking that area of the counter, so we can only see the phone. In every shot where that specific area of the counter is actually visible, the wine bottle and glasses are there.

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Corrected entry: When Monica and Chandler are arguing about Phoebe, she has a bottle of water in her right hand, but in the next shot the bottle is in her left hand.

xx:xx:xx

omegaman3000

Correction: The change of hands doesn't actually happen in the "next shot." We see the water bottle in Monica's right hand, but when the next shot faces Chandler as he comments about his "pinchable butt and bulging biceps," we don't see Monica's arms/hands, and then it's in the last shot of Monica and Chandler that the water bottle's in Monica's left hand.

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Corrected entry: When Rachel enters apartment #19 behind Joey, a person standing behind the door of #20 can be seen through the crack.

xx:xx:xx

Babatomyfriends

Correction: Yes, we see the movements of someone in Monica's apartment (#20), who is either Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, or Ross, all of whom walk out of that apartment when they hear Rachel shouting.

The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Corrected entry: In the first shot of the scene when Ross comes out of the bathroom, the bathtub has no shower curtain. In the next shot, there is one.

lizfree723

Correction: The shower curtain is there in all shots. The first two shots where we can see the bathroom are from the angle near Joey's bedroom door (off set), and from that angle we actually do see the vertical edge of the grey shower curtain - between the bathtub and toilet, then we next see the bathroom from the angle near the foosball table so we're able to see much more of the shower curtain.

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Corrected entry: Later in the episode, while in Joey's apartment with everyone, Joey says that Rachel found his underwear in the girls' apartment but it was actually Phoebe who found them.

MovieFan612

Correction: Joey said Rachel shoved Chandler's underwear in his face, which is true because she's the one who picked it up with the wooden spoon and stuck it near Joey's face when Chandler said the underwear was Joey's.

The One With The Ball - S5-E21

Corrected entry: When Rachel is holding the cat on the cushion with the red oven mitt, for one shot her hand changes from holding the cat, to holding the pillow.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: I just watched this episode, and you can actually see her move her hand from the cat to the pillow and back again.

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Corrected entry: When Monica and Chandler are in the bath, she goes under the water as Joey comes in, and when she reappears her wine glass is still full of wine. It would have filled up with water, not stayed with just wine.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: When Monica surfaces, it is actually Chandler's glass which is in shot and has never been underwater. Monica's glass isn't seen again.

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Corrected entry: When Rachel is getting rid of her date to go inside and console a depressed Ross, you can see a crew member just as she opens the door when she goes back inside. That's neither Chandler nor Joey since Ross was just sitting there alone.

ester

Correction: There is no-one else there, except Ross in the background. What you see is maybe his shirt, but nothing else.

The One After Ross Says Rachel - S5-E1

Corrected entry: At the point where Monica Geller shows Joey the DVD, it's not a DVD but a board to show Matt Leblanc his lines (note him moving his eyebrows).

kane raggett

Correction: Conjecture. Joey is a "dim bulb" and he is reacting to the situation. There is no indication that Matt LeBlanc would need cheatsheets to remember his lines.

MovieFan612

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Corrected entry: When Phoebe and Joey are arguing about Phoebe's guitar teaching lessons, Monica comes in between them and gets her picture taken with them. Who takes the picture? Monica, Joey and Phoebe are all in the picture, Ross is on his date, Rachel is out (she comes in just after the picture is taken) and Chandler isn't there either (he is on the phone to Monica when Rachel picks up the phone). So who did it? There is no furniture there for Monica to have put it high enough to get them all in if she'd set the timer, either.

Correction: Monica's apartment has an area of work top near the door and it also has a table the the right as you can see when rachel comes in singing bad bad leroy brown, she must set a timer set it up on the work top or table and then go and pose for the photo, there fore it wouldn't need anyone to take it.

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Corrected entry: Rachel says, "I'm Kip", and Joey asks who Kip is. Rachel answers that Kip lived with Chandler before he did. How does Rachel know this? She was the last to move and had little contact with Monica between college and the pilot episode.

Henkie36

Correction: Between the pilot and this episode, several months or even years have passed in the "Friends" universe. There has been plenty of time for Rachel to hear about Kip from Chandler or Ross.

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Corrected entry: In shots of Ross in Monica's living room there is a table behind him. In one shot you can see the shadow of the pole from the boom mic on the cloth that is covering it. (For a split second only.)

xx:xx:xx

Correction: This is a bit vauge. Most of the episode is set in Monica's apartent so what part of the episode.

A Demon

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Corrected entry: In the scene where Phoebe is describing her worst Thanksgiving experience (in 1862 as a nurse) and her left hand is blown away, you can see that the hand is fake as it doesn't move, is shorter and is a different color to the right one. Additionally, in the time between the bomb exploding and her hand being torn away, a rope is visible moving it.

Correction: Yes, that's the point, the arm does look obviously fake, and just look at the way blood spurts out, it looks deliberately cheesy. Arms don't just fall off like that either. It is just a funny scene. The writers had no intention of it being taken seriously.

The One In Vegas, Part 1 - S5-E23

Corrected entry: When Phoebe is looking at herself in the mirror with Joey's gladiator hat and says that she should start wearing hats, the microphone's reflection is visible at the top of the mirror.

Correction: That's an item hanging on the wall behind her.

Brad

The One With The Triplets - S5-E3

Corrected entry: Monica tells Chandler she is not going to go on the date with the man nurse. As she is walking away, Chandler is going to do a dance and she says don't do the dance. The dance she is referring to is the one he does where he hears that Monica is with someone who is the best sex she's ever had. How can she know about this dance if the first time she sees it isn't until the following episode?

Correction: Easy - Chandler probably does this dance all the time, and she knows him well enough to know that he does it when he wants to celebrate something.

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Corrected entry: Phoebe states "I don't know the actual names of the chords" when teaching Joey how to play the guitar, but in 'The One With The Baby On The Bus' (Series 2) Phoebe names several of the chords which she can play on the guitar.

Correction: She might know the name but not the position for them. And she only manage to name only 2 chords, even though she is trying to stump Stephanie, the new guitarist. Chances are that's all the chords she knows and she made up names for the others.

A Demon

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

Corrected entry: Phoebe is collecting for charity and Monica comes to see her; a man puts a dollar in the bucket and tries to make change for the bus. When Phoebe argues with the man he says "bite me blondie", but he couldn't have known that she is blonde because she has a Santa hat on that covers her entire head and no hair is coming out from underneath the hat.

Correction: I thought this too, but it's clear in the next shot, when she turns slightly, that Phoebe's long hair comes out below the hat and hangs right down her back - this would have been evident from the man's point of view, even if it's not evident from the front, and therefore to the viewer.

STP

The One With Joey's Bag - S5-E13

Corrected entry: When Phoebe is talking to her dad in the coffee house, she asks Frank Sr. about his marriage to Lily and their two children. But Phoebe has already found out that Lily isn't her real mother because she lives in Montauk. Frank Sr. would surely know that Lily wasn't there real mother if indeed she wasn't.

Correction: Phoebe's real mother left her children when they were born, in Phoebe's eyes Lily is her real mother. And Frank doesn't known that Phoebe found out about her birth mother, the easiest way for Phoebe to get information from him is to go along with the story she's been told from birth.

The One With The Ball - S5-E21

Corrected entry: In The One With The Ball, Monica ends up showing she has an allergy to cat dander. But in the previous season, in The One With The Cat, Phoebe finds a cat that she thinks is the reincarnated spirit of her dead mother. Monica is in close contact with the cat, and even petting it in one scene. Now, it's possible to develop allergies over time, but the time between these two events is very short (in storyline time).

Correction: Monica never says that she has an allergy to cats. It's more likely that she sneezed because of the cat dander but doesn't have an allergy.

The One In Vegas, Part 2 - S5-E24

Corrected entry: Monica rolls the dice straight off the table, and it ends up stuck under the table. How can it suddenly travel backwards and get stuck under the table?

Correction: By bouncing off something.

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.
