24 corrected entries in season 8

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.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

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.

Super Grover

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.

Byraadsledern

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

The One Where Rachel is Late - S8-E22

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode Rachel's water breaks when she is sitting down being kissed by Ross. Despite this her skirt is completely dry when she and Ross walk out of the door to go to hospital.

Correction: When a water breaks, water does not always gush out. For some women it's just a tiny little trickle they can just feel.

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.

A Demon

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.

Pam-I-am

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

A Demon

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.

Pam-I-am

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.

A Demon

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.

Pam-I-am

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

A Demon

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.

Dedderbot

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.

Pam-I-am

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, when Ross finds the red sweater, he says that he has been looking for it for a month. If he could not find it after his night with Rachel then he would at least know it was in her apartment and not need to look for it. If he really had been looking for a month then the sweater meant enough to him that he surely would have asked where it had been found.

Correction: There are situations where you are looking for something, but you not actively "looking" for it. What I mean is that Ross knows he has the red sweater and might have wanted to wear it but obviously couldn't find it, but then forgot about it again until the next time he wanted to wear it. This means that he might not be running around search for the sweater constantly.

The One With The Rumor - S8-E9

Corrected entry: In The One With The Rumour (series 8) Monica begins showing Phoebe that she's meant to fold the napkins like swans. However Phoebe manages to get out of it to 'watch the game' with Chandler. You would think that Monica would have, therefore, folded them into swans herself, seeing as she always has to have everything perfect, but there is no sign of napkins, never mind 'swan' napkins, at the table when they have their meal.

Correction: Both Will and Ross are seen with napkins in several scenes.

The One In Massapequa - S8-E18

Corrected entry: When Ross is telling the imaginary story of how he 'proposed' to Rachel, he says that he did it at the planetarium because 'that's where we had our first date.' However this cannot be right because in series 4 'The One with Chandler in a Box,' Ross accuses Rachel of having no sentiment so she shows him a movie stub from their first date, implying that they went to see a movie, not to the planetarium.

Correction: True, Ross and Rachel didn't go to the Planetarium on their first date, but they did end up there on their second date. It was also the place where they first made love, and it's quite possible Ross would say it was the location of their first date to be polite and not talk about sex in front of his family and older friends.

The One Where Chandler Takes a Bath - S8-E13

Corrected entry: When Chandler is in the bath, Phoebe congratulates Monica on his 'size'; but in an earlier episode she tells Chandler and Monica that she looks when men are on the table and Chandler says 'You look? You massage me' and she laughs and says 'I know' which suggests something else

Correction: In the massage episode she could just be trying to psyche him out, Phoebe style. With Phoebe you can never be sure.

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Corrected entry: In the one with the video tape, Ross enters the apartment when everyone on the couch and tells Rachel that he did not watch the video of them, and hands her a vhs tape. The video camera takes a tape much smaller than a vhs tape. Why would he transfer it on to a vhs tape? Shouldn't he have handed her a smaller tape?

Melissa

Correction: Joey's video camera is quite a large one - it could easily take a full-size VHS tape.

Jon Sandys

The One In Massapequa - S8-E18

Corrected entry: In 'The One In Massapequa,' Ross and Rachel have to pretend to be married for the night at the party. Unless everyone was blind, then wouldn't someone notice Rachel and Ross didn't have a ring on their finger?

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Not every married couple wear wedding rings. Ross mentions that Rachel said something about a dove placing the ring on her finger, but remember, Rachel is pregnant during this, it is very possible that people thought she'd just taken off her ring because her hands had swollen due to the pregnancy.

Kara

The One With Monica's Boots - S8-E10

Corrected entry: In the one with Sting's son Phoebe is reading an article in a magazine saying that Sting's son is in the same class at school as Ben and reads that he is seven years old, hence Ben is too. Later on when Ross tells Phoebe that Ben is seven Phoebe is shocked that is that old, as if she didn't already know.

Correction: Phoebe knew that it was the same school that Ben attended, but she did not know that it was the same class. The article was not about Ben being in the same class as the boy, it was about Sting's son going to that school. Therefore, it it perfectly legitimate that Phoebe would not know Ben's age.

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.
