The Checkbook - S2-E16

Corrected entry: When Ray cuts in front of a woman at the ATM, she runs to get a cop. She comes back with Robert. The problem is, Robert is a New York City cop, and Ray lives in Nassau County, which is not in New York City. Robert has no jurisdiction, and would not be patrolling in Nassau County.

Correction: This is not necessarily an error. If a crime is taking place in Nassau County and Robert is in his NY-PD uniform, he would be allowed to respond to a citizen's request for aid. In this case, a woman is robbed at an ATM and the nearest police officer she could find is an NY-PD patrol officer that officer could respond. In NY State, all police officers have authority to respond to crimes in that state, regardless of the jurisdiction.

Correction: S04e06 "The Sister" is when Jennifer comes over to announce she's going to become a nun. There's never any mention she never married. While it doesn't bring up her husband or ex-husband, they do say she wouldn't be able to give up men (and joked she dated The Who), so she simply could have had a big wedding and then gotten divorced shortly after.


Show generally

Corrected entry: Debra tells Dr. Laura that she met Raymond doing PR for the Rangers, yet in Season 3, episode "How They Met", it shows us that they met while he was delivering her a futon before he even had a career as a Sportswriter.


Correction: Debra isn't talking about Raymond doing PR for the Rangers when they met, she is talking about herself. Ray was a futon delivery guy, she was doing PR for the Rangers at the time.

In-Laws - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When Ray sneaks into the room he is carrying his blazer and shoes in his hands. After Debra turns on the light and walks over to the dresser, the camera pans back to Ray and he is empty-handed for the rest of the scene.


Correction: Ray put his pants and shoes on the chair while the camera is on Debra. There is no error.

How They Met - S3-E26

Corrected entry: During the flashback, Ray is holding the futon case when he knocks on Debra's door. When he walks in and sees her naked, he isn't holding the case anymore, and isn't seen holding it for the rest of the scene.

Correction: He is holding the case when he enters and is holding it while Debra reacts to him seeing her naked. When the shot changes when Gianni walks in, the case is gone, but from the position of Ray's hands it looks as though he has thrown it on the floor.

Correction: It's just a motion-sensor light outside the front door.

Correction: This would only be a mistake if he squeezed it less than 12 times. Doing it more is just "extra".

Season 2 generally

Corrected entry: During the opening sequence for Season 2, all the floating people have shadows visible on the house. When Robert walks by the house, he doesn't cast a shadow on the house but he does on Raymond, therefore the floating people and the house behind them are products of green screen filming.

Correction: No.... only Robert walks in front of Raymond -- all the others go past behind him. Their shadows would be further back (i.e., onto the house), where Robert's would be only as far as Raymond (even taking into account his height).

Turkey or Fish - S1-E10

Corrected entry: Retrieving the fish, Ray whips open the door to a still-running dishwasher. Dishwashers won't run until a locking latch is in place, so he should not have been able to do that. Some dishwashers have push lever latches, like some cars have squeeze lever handles.


Correction: My late-model dishwasher can be opened during a wash cycle. It has a pinch-type mechanism at the top and the agitator will still be turning and water still dripping when it is opened during the cycle. So this is not an impossibility and not a mistake.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode when Ray gets Debra To kill a Mockingbird, Frank says "I killed a bird once." But in the thanksgiving episode Frank gets mad when Amy's parents kill The Bird and says he would never kill an innocent creature.

Correction: There isn't enough context to judge Frank's comment that he "killed a bird once". Maybe it was a game bird (for eating) or maybe it wasn't an "innocent creature" (e.g., it was injured and Frank euthanized it, etc.). The two comments are separate and aren't conceptualized enough to make this a mistake.

Correction: So he removed the fax machine, which could be for any number of reasons, especially since the machine is gone in a subsequent (rather than prior) episode?

Driving Frank - S3-E2

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the episode, when Robert and Frank are at Ray's house, one camera shot shows Robert and the back window behind him. In the window, you can easily see a crew member standing there, looking into the window.

Correction: That's not a crew member. That is Raymond's face reflecting off of the window.

The Garage Sale - S2-E23

Corrected entry: While Debra and Marie are outside of The Garage Sale the wind is blowing quite strongly and blows Debra's hair all over the place in a big way. However, Marie's hair does not move at all, not even as a total unit, say if she had on a lot of hairspray or had been permed. The significant amount of wind would have caused some movement, no question. This suggests the fan was only pointed or primarily pointed in the direction of Debra.


Correction: Marie's hairstyle is attained by using a pic to lift and shape it and then sprayings lots and lots and lots of hairspray to hold it. That hair does not move - ever. It only gets smooshed when you sleep on it. My mother's hair was the same way. Breezy days don't affect it.

Win, Lose or Draw - S1-E9

Corrected entry: Raymond is invited, by his father, to a friendly poker game. The dealer calls The Game, "Seven card, no peeking," then deals the cards. The first thing Raymond does is pick up his cards and look at them. This should have required him to match the pot and sacrifice his hand.

Correction: As you noted, it's friendly poker game. They obviously chose to cut him some slack since he was new and it was the very first hand dealt.

How They Met - S3-E26

Trivia: The flashback of this episode has several similarities to Ray Romano's real life. He was a futon delivery man before he was a comedian, he worked with his friend Claude, and he once walked into a customer's house to find her naked, mistaking her saying, "coming." for "Come in."

No Thanks - S4-E9

Question: Marie teaches Debra to make something called Canopys (I'm not even sure that's how you spell it). Can someone tell me what Canopys are and give me the correct spelling? I assume it's some sort of Italian appetizer or dish.


Chosen answer: A Canapé is a cracker or a small, thin piece of bread or toast spread with cheese, meat, or relish and served as an appetizer.
