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.

xx:xx:xx

omegaman3000

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.

Super Grover

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.

Super Grover

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.

Super Grover

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

Super Grover

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.

Anastasios Anastasatos

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.

Twotall

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.

The One With The Yeti - S5-E6

Corrected entry: When Emily calls Ross at the end of the show and asks to be put on speaker phone, Ross agrees but he hangs up the phone, then presses the speaker phone button. You must turn on the speaker phone option before setting down the phone. Emily and the gang should not have been able to speak to each other because Ross hung up on her.

Mark English

Correction: As she called him, the line would stay connected until she hung up (I work in telecommunications), had he called her, he would have indeed hung up on her.

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Corrected entry: When Chandler tells Phoebe he can't do anything with her because he loves Monica, Monica comes out of the bathroom and acts surprised, but Chandler has already said that he loves her, in TOW the Thanksgivings.

Correction: Monica was surprised because it was the first time he'd said it to other people. She knew that he loved her, but it's another thing to say it to others (especially for Chandler). She, and everyone else, probably expected him to say something like "I'm going out with Monica", but he used love. This is backed up by Phoebe's exclamation of "I thought you guys were just doing it. I didn't know you were in love.".

The One With The Cop - S5-E16

Corrected entry: When Gary the cop comes looking for Phoebe, he comes to Monica's apartment. He tells her that he found her by looking at her file, which would have her address on it, so why does he come to Monica's apartment?

Correction: Phoebe and Monica used to live together. It's possible that the last known address the police have on Phoebe is from when she and Monica were roommates.

LuMaria 1

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Corrected entry: In the one with all the Thanksgivings, Monica is cheering up Chandler by putting a turkey on her head. Where did the whole uncooked turkey come from though, considering they had just had their meal? Did Monica just happen to have a large turkey in her freezer? To make matters worse, it is not possible for a human being to put a frozen turkey over his head for that long and not faint.

Correction: This is Monica, two possibilities are that 1) she had a backup turkey for Thanksgiving and 2) it's in the freezer for Christmas, which is only a month away. Lastly, I've never tried but I see no reason why she would faint in the time shown. I suspect the turkey is not airtight.

The One With The Cop - S5-E16

Corrected entry: In the scene where Phoebe finds the police badge, the cup in front of her moves around.

Pam-I-am

Correction: I've watched this scene very carefully and the cup simply does not move at all. It remains in exactly the same position for the whole scene.

tw_stuart

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Corrected entry: When Monica and Chandler enter Joey's apartment, Joey is sleeping with a toy penguin which he drops on the floor behind him. In the next shot, Hugsy is on the cabinet near the bathroom.

Correction: There is a similar looking cuddly toy on that cabinet but it is definitely not Hugsy. It's clearly a different shape.

tw_stuart

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Corrected entry: When Rachel picks up the extension and overhears Monica talking to Chandler, she screams before she hangs up. Monica would have come running out of the room.

Correction: If you watch the scene carefully Rachel is reaching for the phone and hangs up just a fraction of a second before she screams.

The One Where Phoebe Hates PBS - S5-E4

Corrected entry: When Phoebe tells Joey she hates the channel he is going to, she says that when she was living on the street they sent her a key chain. Well, at what address did they send it to? Ms.Phoebe Buffay, The street?

Correction: They could have sent it to a P.O box or a friend of hers or even a business she stayed close to.

SexyIrishLeprechaun

Season 5 generally

Corrected entry: When Rachel is flying to London we find out that a last minute ticket is $2700. Now even if a regular ticket was only half of that, how does Emily afford flying back and forth constantly?

Correction: First of all, she doesn't go back and forth that much, and no doubt will book a bit in advance, making it much cheaper. Most of the time she is ringing Ross, not speaking to him in person. Secondly, a family member of mine booked a flight to New York with British Airways for £199 ($300ish) return. It's hardly going to break the bank, and as we have evidence that Emily's family is fairly well off it's quite possible for her to be flying like this.

David Mercier

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Corrected entry: When Phoebe has the flashbacks to her former life as a nurse in the war, the arm that gets blown off is very obvious a fake.

Pam-I-am

Correction: Yes it's a fake but there was never any attempt to make it look real - the blood spray is over the top too. It's just another aspect of the scene's silliness.

tw_stuart

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Corrected entry: In this episode, Rachel states that she can not stand having anything near her eye, however in the episode *The One with the Chick and the Duck*, she allows Ross to put eyeshadow on her.

Pam-I-am

Correction: She can't stand anything near her open eye but she has her eyes closed when Ross is applying the eyeshadow.

tw_stuart

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Corrected entry: Ross goes into Ben's room to kiss him goodnight. While he's in there, Monica and Chandler leave to do 'laundry,' Phoebe leaves, and Joey and Rachel have their dialogue. He's in there for a long time, but worst of all is that he doesn't hear Joey and Rachel's shouting, which he really should have heard, being less than fifteen meters away on the other side of a door we've seen several times can easily be heard through.

Correction: We don't know whether Ross heard the shouting. Ben may have been upset by the shouting, and Ross stayed in the bedroom to look after him.

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Corrected entry: In "The One Where Everybody Finds Out," Monica and Chandler walk in on Joey when he is cuddling his bedtime penguin pal. He throws it over his chair but it isn't seen behind the chair or anywhere else on the floor, where did it go?

Correction: You never see the part of the floor where Hugsy supposedly came down.

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Corrected entry: In TOW Joey's Big Break, Rachel and Monica leave the apartment for Rachel's eye doctor appointment. But Rachel exits the apartment then turns left(to go off-stage)when you must turn right to head for the stairs and leave the apartment block.

Correction: Rachel turns left because she is trying to get out of going to the doctor so she doesn't have to have anything put in her eye.

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Corrected entry: In the one with all the thanksgivings Monica is trying to cheer up Chandler by putting a turkey on her head. You can see that she is only carrying a hat in her hands but after she places the hat on top of the turkey she also puts a big pair of yellow sunglasses on it. Where did the sunglasses come from?

Correction: When Monica comes up to the door she has the sunglasses tucked in her pants. Thats why the sunglasses seem to appear out of nowhere after she puts the hat on.

The One Where Rachel Smokes - S5-E18

Corrected entry: In the episode where Rachel smokes, she tells her boss that her father is a doctor and he used to tell her 'horror stories' about what smoking does to you. But back in season 2 in the episode where they have two parties for Rachel, Dr. Greene asks Ross to get him a cigarette out of his coat pocket.

Correction: While you can't dispute the fact that Dr. Greene smokes, this doesn't necessarily mean that he would propagate it. He could have told Rachel all the horror stories about smoking while still being addicted to nicotine. Many smokers are very adamant in the belief that smoking is bad.

The One Where Rachel Smokes - S5-E18

Corrected entry: At the very end of the show when Chandler is looking for Rachel at her work he takes a drag off of Rachel's bosses cigarette. However we never see him exhale any smoke. He just imitates taking a drag.

Correction: He mumbles his words a bit - likely he just didn't exhale much. He definitely takes a proper drag though - you can see the tip glow.

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.
