The One With Monica's Boots - S8-E10

Corrected entry: In the scene with Joey's sister where Rachel says 'Give him the sandwich' the bathroom is gone and there are only red bricks. (00:12:19)

Correction: That's not red bricks, it's the shower curtain over the bathtub.

The One With The Stain - S8-E7

Corrected entry: In this episode, Phoebe abandons having lunch with Ross because of a date with Eric; however in 'The One With All The Cheesecakes', Phoebe makes a huge speech about how you 'do not cancel plans with friends'.

Correction: "The One With All The Cheesecakes" is one season prior to "The One With The Stain." In the former, Phoebe was tempted to cancel her monthly lunch with Joey, for a date with David. (That's after her speech!) She didn't, but Joey mistreated her anyway. This may have caused her to revise her principle of "do not cancel plans with friends" over the course of one year. But more importantly, Phoebe, a human being, is well capable of overlooking principles for self-interest. What can plausibly be explained by selfishness, forgetfulness and deceitfulness must not be attributed to a filming mistake.


The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Corrected entry: When Monica and Chandler walk into the dance hall, a cameraman is seen following them.

Brad Premium member

Correction: This is an actor portraying a wedding videographer.

The One With The Birthing Video - S8-E15

Corrected entry: When Rachel gets her Chinese food, she says she is going to get her sweats and eat it in her room. However a few seconds later, she is changed. It has to be the fastest change in history. (00:13:00)

Correction: After Rachel gets her Chinese takeout delivery, when she heads to her room it's actually 20 seconds from the time she walks past the hallway to the time she reappears from the hallway. That's ample time to throw off shoes, a blouse and pants, then pull on sweats. Done in less time in dorms everywhere.

The One With The Rumor - S8-E9

Corrected entry: Even though Chandler and Phoebe say they don't really watch the football game, it seems as though they agree that Detroit Lions won the game. But the 2001 Thanksgiving Day game between the Lions and the Packers were indeed won by the Packers.


Correction: You missed the whole point - they say they don't watch the game and then they guessed the wrong winning team.


The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Corrected entry: Ross and Chandler are in the ballroom looking for the disposable cameras. Chandler comes out from under the table, a disposable camera is in clear shot on top of the table but neither character notices.

Correction: Monica and Chandler's cameras were in a bag. The camera on the table was for the wedding they were crashing.

Brenda Horne Elzin

Exactly, Chandler knew they were in a bag so why look at others on the table.

The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Corrected entry: Chandler and Ross go back to the reception site to take pictures with disposable cameras to "replace" the cameras they had misplaced. Chandler is posing, smiling, etc. In the previous season, Chandler and Monica are getting their engagement picture taken and Chandler can't smile for the camera. In fact, Monica ends up taking her picture with Joey and puts that in the paper.

Correction: That is previously. Chandler could have learnt to smile in that time. Not a mistake.

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Corrected entry: In the scene when Joey calls Monica and Chandler on their honeymoon, a water appears that wasn't there and then moves around the table during the scene.


Correction: Phoebe got the drink, and it is in scene all the time.

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Corrected entry: In the scene where Phoebe and Joey figure out that Monica took away their keys, Phoebe had gotten a drink out of the fridge and set it down in front of her. In the next shot it is in front of Joey.


Correction: There is a shot of phoebe and you can just make out Joey pulling the drink towards him. then it cuts to Phoebe and the drink is in front of Joey.

The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Corrected entry: When Rachel walks up to Tag's table, she sets her purse on it. It stays there for a couple of shots, and then she sets it down again.


Correction: She picks it up again as she moves to sit down then puts it down.

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Corrected entry: After Rachel tells Ross she is pregnant with his baby they go to see a midwife who performs an ultrasound scan. However, she never once touches Rachel with the equipment, yet when they look at the screen they are told "There's your baby," and they can see it moving and the heart beating etc.

Correction: Most pregnant women will tell you there are 2 types of ultrasounds. It was likely that they were portraying an Intravaginal Ultrasound, hence no need for her to be near Rachel's stomach.

The One With The Birthing Video - S8-E15

Corrected entry: When Phoebe is eating the Saltwater Taffy, she bites off a little bit and finishes chewing it. However, once she finishes chewing it she seems to have magically eaten the whole piece.

Correction: If you look closely at the wrapper in her hand once she has finished, you can see that the remainder of the taffy has been wrapped in it.

The One In Massapequa - S8-E18

Corrected entry: In this episode, Rachel says to Ross, "Hey. I'm not you. This may be the only wedding I'll ever get." However, this is not strictly true, as she sort of had a wedding to Barry, and a drunken wedding to Ross in The One In Vegas.

Correction: Ross has been married twice (not counting the druken Vegas wedding). Rachel has never been married. She never made it to the alter with Barry and was too drunk in Vegas to remember anything. She wants something memorable.

The One Where Rachel is Late - S8-E22

Corrected entry: Rachel's water breaks yet her clothes (especially her skirt) are completely dry.

Correction: When the water breaks, it doesn't necessarily have to be a big "splash". There can be just a few drops or a light stream, not enough to make the clothes wet, but still enough for the woman to feel it.

The One With Joey's Interview - S8-E19

Corrected entry: Joey buys all the muffins, and Gunther hands him a plate with all of them on (and promises all of them to him). However, straight after Phoebe walks past with a muffin.

Correction: She could have got it before Joey bought them all. Or even bought it from another store.

The One With Monica's Boots - S8-E10

Corrected entry: In The One With Monica's Boots, Joey finds out that his younger sister Deena is pregnant. Joey then storms off to find her boyfriend Bobby and manages to find him. How would he be able to, though? It is made clear that Joey has never met Bobby before, therefore he would not know what he looks like or where to find him. Even if he did some how manage to find him how did he manage to do it so quickly?

Correction: It is probably likely that he went down to their neighborhood and asked around, it isn't that hard to locate someone if you have their entire name (which Deena gave him). Also, you don't know how long it took him. Considering that the scene that shows Joey lecturing both Bobby and Deena came after the scene that shows Monica and Chandler at the party at nighttime, one can conclude that it took Joey a while to locate Bobby.


The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Corrected entry: When Joey is proposing to Rachel, Phoebe is in the background with a water bottle, and screws the lid on twice in the scene.


Correction: Phoebe drinks a little bit of the water, and than, if you look closely, you can see her un-screwing the bottle the first time, without her putting the lid back on, and a little bit later she screws it back on.

The One In Massapequa - S8-E18

Corrected entry: In the one with Ross and Monica's parents' 35th wedding anniversary, when the parents are talking to Ross and Rachel, there is a picture of the parents in the background, in exactly the same location, wearing exactly the same clothes. That photo would have had to be taken, printed, and blown up in the last hour. (00:05:40)

Correction: Not out of the question. At my prom last year we had our photographs taken as we arrived and then they were available (ie, printed) to buy not much later on in the evening. I imagine that if this is possible, so is the provision of an enlarged version. Added to that, Jack and Judy could very likely have been at the function early, sorting things out, and had the pictures taken then - they would have been wearing the same clothes, and the photographs could have been printed even before the guests arrived.

He's My Brother

Season 8 generally

Corrected entry: Chandler and Joey's pets, the chick and the duck, simply disappear in the later seasons without any explanation.

Correction: They explained it during "The Last One." They died, but Joey was never told that, he was told that they went to a special farm.

The One With The Secret Closet - S8-E14

Corrected entry: In "The One With The Secret Closet," the whole show is about Monica's secret closet (the one near the bathroom), why she keeps the door locked and how Chandler wants to find out what's in there. However, in "The One with the Dozen Lasagnas," the door is open and the closet reveals nothing more than clothes and other regular stuff you put in a closet. Also in the one where Phoebe and Rachel are looking for Christmas presents Rachel says she'll go and check the back closet, the one next to the bathroom.

Correction: Chandler says "since I've lived here, I've never seen the inside of that closet" or something along those lines. Monica had plenty of time to clutter up that closet, without Chandler ever having to see it.

Friends mistake picture

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the coffee house, Phoebe is talking to Monica who is drinking a cup of coffee. Towards the end of the scene, the camera is on Phoebe who is smiling & laughing at Monica. In the right hand corner is a side view of 'Monica' however, it is not Courtney Cox in the scene, but a completely different actress. [Widescreen version only, although the "wrong" nose is visible in the original]. (00:06:20)

Rachel: No accountants. Oh, and no one from, like, "legal." I don't like guys with boring jobs.

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.
