Revealing mistake: While Monica and Rachel are talking about Chandler's "jollies to Jaws" Rachel's wearing a colorful flowery top, and after Joey walks in just as Monica takes her seat at the table in the closeup, it's Jennifer Aniston's stand-in, wearing a blue top, who is seated beside Monica. And Rachel's hair is waivy in the flowered top, but straight in the blue top. (Viewed in widescreen).

The One With Rachel's Other Sister - S9-E8

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Other mistake: The layout of the hotel surrounding the main cast's rooms as displayed during the sequence where Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe eavesdrop on Ross, Charlie, Rachael, and Joey is physically impossible. Ross enters the room Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe are in through the same wall they are using to listen in on Charlie and him, though while the camera is in Ross and Charlie's room, no door can be seen in that wall. Furthermore, a hallway can be seen through the doorway while Ross holds the door open, implying that the two rooms do not share a wall in the first place.

The One With The Fertility Test - S9-E21

Continuity mistake: When Rachel takes her gift certificate to the massage parlour to claim her free massage, she hands it to the receptionist and we can see that it has been torn up into eight pieces and taped back together. Yet when Phoebe tears up the gift certificate in a previous scene, we see her tear it into only four pieces before handing it back to Rachel. (00:05:00 - 00:08:20)

The One With The Girl From Poughkeepsie - S4-E10

Rachel: No accountants. Oh, and no one from, like, "legal." I don't like guys with boring jobs.
Chandler: Oh, and Ross was like what, a lion tamer?

More quotes from Friends

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

More trivia for Friends

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.
