The One With The Ring - S6-E23

Corrected entry: When Chandler and Phoebe go to the jewelry store Phoebe's hair has two braids on each side that are being held together by what appears to be a hair pin, later on the scene where Phoebe is trying on a tiara she only has one braid on each side and no hair pins.

Correction: First, when Chandler's in the store Phoebe doesn't have two braids on the left side of her head - it's only one braid decorated with small colorful rhinestones, but she does have the two single braids on her right side, held together with a small silver hair clip. Second, while Chandler's gone Phoebe's been having fun trying on the store's jewelry - note all the necklaces, brooches, etc., and we see that one of those single braids has come loose so there's just one braid on that side now. But because it's been quite a while since Chandler had left the store, there's really no continuity issue.

The One With Joey's Fridge - S6-E19

Corrected entry: In Season 2 Episode 1 'TOW Ross' New Girlfriend' Joey is talking about how his tailor did his first pants when he was either 15 or 16. He wasn't sure and said 'When was 1990?' Indicating that he was 15 or 16 in 1990. In Season 6 Episode 19 'TOW Joey's Fridge' It was revealed that in 1981 Joey was 13. Which means that Joey was born in 1968. If Joey was born in 1968, then in 1990 he was 22.


Correction: He never says that in 1990 he was 16. He was asking when was 1990 to have a time reference, and then calculate when the event happened in relation to that.

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Corrected entry: Monica says her boss doesn't like her. But, at her restaurant, Monica is the head chef.

Brad Premium member

Correction: She still has a boss, namely the owner and/or daily manager of the restaurant.


The One Where Paul's The Man - S6-E22

Corrected entry: When Paul is looking in the mirror and saying he's a sex machine, instead of looking at himself in the mirror, Paul is looking at the camera in the mirror. That's why his eyes in the mirror look to the front. This happens in many films and TV shows.

Correction: How is this a mistake? I don't think it even qualifies as trivia.

Season 6 generally

Corrected entry: When Rachel is looking for an apartment, Phoebe says she can stay with her because her roommate Denise will be gone until December 26th. But when the apartment burns down and they plan to move back in episode 10 of season 7, nobody cares that Denise would've been back a LONG time and also doesn't have an apartment, because Phoebe wants Rachel to move in with her.

Correction: Denise was made up.

The One Where Chandler Can't Cry - S6-E14

Corrected entry: Phoebe says that she cried for three days after seeing Bambi, although on the 3rd day her mother killed herself so she was partly crying for that. Back in season 2: "The One Where Old Yeller Dies", she finds that her mother would never let her see the ending of sad movies so it seems unlikely that she would let her watch a film like Bambi.

Correction: Phoebe's mother was busy planning her suicide, so she wasn't really likely to be checking what films her children were watching.

The One With Ross's Denial - S6-E3

Corrected entry: In the scene where Rachel asks Phoebe if she can live with her Phoebe claims to have a roommate called Denise. However in a previous episode 'The one in Vegas part 1' Rachel and Phoebe are talking about walking around the apartment naked and Rachel says "you live on your own" to which Phoebe agrees saying "Yeah, why do you think it takes me so long to answer the door".

Correction: The whole point of this joke is that Denise doesn't exist.

The One With The Routine - S6-E10

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, Ross and Monica complain because they didn't get to perform their routine on the platform (because it cut to midnight too quickly). But the director must have known exactly when the filming would end, so why would he have put Ross and Monica on the platform 10 seconds before the end of filming? It's not just that he wants them in the background for a few seconds or something, because he wanted them for the blooper show (not the final show) and they didn't get a chance to dance up there at all.

Correction: Quite simply, he wants them to stop bugging him about performing on the platform. They have been in his face all night long, doing dance moves that (in his eyes) are not good enough, so putting them there in the last few seconds shuts them up and gives them no base for later complaints, while the same maintaining the quality of the show by filming the platforms with decent dancers.


The One After Vegas - S6-E1

Corrected entry: At the very end when Joey breaks down the door, what looks like a stage curtain blows into the shot. (00:20:55)


Correction: That's not a curtain on the soundstage, it's actually the tablecloth on the side table - it's white with green pattern and trim. It's also visible earlier in the episode.

The One With Joey's Fridge - S6-E19

Corrected entry: When Rachel refuses the two guys she is offered, when she is about to storm out then asks the guy about his hair, the shot changes. Between these shots, Phoebe simply disappears from beside Monica and Chandler. (00:18:10)

Correction: When the scene is cut to Monica and Chandler you can see Phoebe move over, and when you see Rachel come back, you can see Phoebe's hand on the left of the screen.

The One Where Chandler Can't Cry - S6-E14

Corrected entry: When Chandler first reveals that he doesn't cry they are watching ET. The TV manages to turn off without anyone switching it off.


Correction: You can see Chandler turn off the tv.

The One That Could Have Been, part 1 - S6-E15

Corrected entry: When Rachael meets Ross at the magazine stand, Ross's "Busty Ladies" doesn't appear in his hand until Rachael points it out. At several points, both his hands are in view.

Correction: I have studied this scene very well and every time that Ross' hands are in view, you can see the magazine, "Busty Ladies", in his hands.

The One With The Proposal, part 2 - S6-E25

Corrected entry: Monica tells Richard "Where was this 3 years ago", implying that they broke up 3 years ago. However, they broke up 4 years before Chandler proposed.

Correction: Character mistake, it is easy to be a year off when you quickly have to have to judge the time frame.


The One Where Chandler Can't Cry - S6-E14

Corrected entry: In the scene where after Monica picks up the Chicken Soup for the Soul book, Chandler mentions their marriage. This is before Chandler proposes to Monica so how do they know they're getting married?

Correction: It's hypothetical, Chandler is mocking his own inability to show emotion by saying that *if* they get married then he'll be standing long faced at the alter. Lots of couples talk about being married well before a proposal is made.


The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

Corrected entry: The screen that Rachel bought at Pottery Barn moves when Ross, Rachel and Phoebe are talking. Sometimes the clock is covered and at others it is not.


Correction: The screen doesn't move, the camera angle changes from shot to shot which is why the clock is sometimes fully visible and sometimes only partially visible.


The One With Rachel's Sister - S6-E13

Corrected entry: When Rachel comes in to spy on Ross through Monica and Chandler's window we hear the shower water running and both Monica and Chandler are in the bathroom. However, Chandler comes out wearing a T-shirt under his robe (and he's wearing socks). This seems to assume that he is dry (as the T-shirt is dry too). Also we can see that Monica is wearing her nightdress under her robe when we see down to her feet, so how could one or both of them have been showering?

Correction: It could have been bathwater running, and they were not yet in the tub.


The One After Vegas - S6-E1

Corrected entry: Ross and Rachel both wake up with pen on their faces - the same pen from the episode before which nothing could remove. All well and good, except when they come down to breakfast there's no sign of any pen marks.

Jon Sandys Premium member

Correction: According to Martha Kauffman, Ross and Rachel were able to cover the pen marks with makeup at that point, as it had begun to wear off anyway.

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Corrected entry: In the scene where Joey is mad at Janine because of all the girlie things, he brings his towel from the bathroom and puts it on the counter, Janine picks it up, but in the next shot it is back on the counter.


Correction: We see Janine pick up the towel but then the shot switches to Joey and she has enough time to put it down again before we see it on the counter.


The One Where Paul's The Man - S6-E22

Corrected entry: When Paul enters his bedroom and Ross is behind the door, Ross hesitates and then snakes under the bed while Paul is distracted. However, Paul is looking at the mirror in the corner, which faces back towards the door, so he should have seen Ross standing there.

Correction: The mirror is not in the corner but more importantly, Ross has already snaked under the bed before Paul really starts to look in the mirror.


The One With The Joke - S6-E12

Corrected entry: In TOW The Chicken Pox Monica says she always has to sleep on one side of the bed (the right, as we look at it). In TOW The Joke she is sleeping on the opposite side.

Correction: We've seen through the series that Chandler also has to sleep on the right side of the bed. When they moved in together one of them had to take the left side. Monica might have let Chandler have the right side to make him feel at home.

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 Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying "I knew it." When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy and it is a big deal.", is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
