Question: What's Ashley Judd's last line? I missed it in the cinema and when it was on TV the other day I remembered too late to turn on subtitles.

Chosen answer: Her last line is "I wish you love".

Friends (1994)

Show generally

Question: I've always wondered about this - how is the Friends set/studio laid out? It's fairly obvious that the two main apartments and corridor are one large set with the audience behind the camera (as is fairly standard), but what about Central Perk? Is that part of the same set with the audience...somewhere, or is that filmed elsewhere and shown to the audience separately?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: Monica's apartment is centre stage, with Joey's on the audience's left, separated by the hallway in between. Central Perk is on the right of Monica's, and stays up permanently because it features in every show. Ross' appartment is on the right of Monica's but alongside the audience. 1. Monica's room and the guest room formerly known as Rachel's room are not set up all the time because they are often used for filming from different angles. When they are set up it is often on a different part of the set. 2. The poster next to Monica's tv hides a camera hole for filming kitchen/door scenes. 3. The street outside Central Perk is also part of the set, not filmed outside. However I am unsure of where this is in relation to the set. 4. Monica's secret closet is actually a door to the backstage area, the shelves featuring in the one with the secret closet were a one time thing. These facts were correct at the end of series nine, details of the layout of the series 10 set are not yet available.

Scream 2 (1997)

Question: There's a trivia entry already listed about where to find Matthew Lillard making a cameo, but I've heard that Rose McGowan (Tatum from Scream) is in the background in the opening sequence somewhere. Can anyone tell me exactly where?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: Rose is the girl in a deep-green shirt with blonde hair. She looks slightly shocked. You see her near the left center of the audience scene, right after the 2nd shot of Jada climbing/crawling onto the stage.

Answer: Although that audience member does bear a vague resemblance to Rose McGowan, wouldn't she have had her blonde hair dyed back to her natural brunette look? Just my opinion. I wanted to share with y'all.

Angel (1999)

Parting Gifts - S1-E10

Question: Why is Doyle still in the opening credits of this episode? He's dead.

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: It was most likely Joss Whedon messing with the audience. It was intended to make people believe he wasn't really dead and he was coming back somehow. Also, they didn't want to give away that Wesley was joining the cast, which is how it concludes.

Scream (1996)

Scream mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the killer surprises Sid after she's come in from outside and locked the door, he tries to stab her with his left hand, misses, and hits the door right next to the chain in closeup. In wide shot (very quick shot) when Sid legs it, look at the killer and you can see he's holding a very badly bent knife in his right hand, nowhere near the chain. (00:27:55)

Equilibrium (2002)

Equilibrium mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the final rampage through the corridor, Preston shoots through the door, killing the guards on his side but also those in the room - we see them falling to one side. But when the corridor guards fall through the doors, in shots from Preston's point of view the guards are visible standing just inside the door before being knocked down. (01:30:30)

Patton (1970)

Continuity mistake: When the Germans attack during the discussion about air support, Patton's office gets shot up. In one shot we see bullets strafe a wall with a vase in front of it - the vase wobbles but remains intact. Then we see another shot of the same wall/vase combo being strafed - you can see marks on the wall where the bullet impacts are about to be, and this time the vase shatters too. (00:34:05)

Friends (1994)

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Continuity mistake: At the end of the blind date, in shots of Rachel, her date Steve is holding her hand with both of his, but from the reverse angle he's only using one. (00:18:45)

Friends (1994)

Show generally

Audio problem: Any scenes outside Central Perk always sound as if they're on a set (which let's be honest, they are) - the sound is often muted and footsteps on the pavement have a very slight echo to them.

The One With Chandler's Dad - S7-E22

Revealing mistake: When we first see the Porsche, there are smear marks on the bonnet from previous takes of Ross diving across it. (00:04:35)

Friends (1994)

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When Joey and Rachel are trying to work out if the other knows about Monica and Chandler, they sit at the table in silence. In a side shot of Joey they look at each other sneakily, and Joey has his arms by his sides. It then cuts to a head-on shot of Joey, and he's got his right arm over the back of the chair. (00:19:00)

Friends (1994)

The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: At the very start of the episode, when Joey's showing Chandler National Geographic, Chandler has his left hand up by his face in one shot, then when the angle changes they're both clasped in his lap. (00:00:05)

Friends (1994)

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Continuity mistake: As Ross says "this is our wedding day", in a close-up Elliot Gould is holding a bit of paper in his left hand (glasses in his other hand, out of shot). In the wide shot the paper is in his right hand, then jumps back to his left when the angle changes. (00:36:25)

Jon Sandys Premium member

Continuity mistake: After they crash the mustang, a gunfight breaks out. Harrison Ford opens his door and fires one or two rounds - after that the slide of his gun locks back, showing it's empty. The angle then changes, and he carries on shooting with no problems. No time for him to reload. (01:28:25)

Friends (1994)

The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Ross asks Chandler "you took his underwear?", the angle changes halfway through the line. Chandler's hands go from in front of him to being in his pockets. (00:10:50)

Continuity mistake: When Antonio Banderas is finally proficient at swordsmanship, he knocks Anthony Hopkins' sword out of his hand and catches it. He then laughs and throws it back pointing downwards, but when Anthony Hopkins catches it, it's pointing upwards. (00:41:00)

The Lost World: Jurassic Park mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Jeff Goldblum is trapped in the car with the raptor outside, the raptor bumps into the window, cracking it. There's no hole in the centre of the crack in the shot of the raptor, but when we see a shot of Jeff Goldblum a second later, there's suddenly a hole in the window. (01:30:05)

Lethal Weapon 2 (1989)

Trivia: The first time we see Riggs in his trailer, there's an advert for some new aftershave called "Hero" on the TV. During the attack on his trailer later, there's a close-up shot of a bottle of aftershave being destroyed - freeze-frame it and you'll see the brand: "Hero" again.

Lethal Weapon 2 (1989)

Lethal Weapon 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the bathroom explodes, from one angle we see the toilet come sailing out over the roof of a police truck parked at the front of the house. While the angles make it a bit tricky to judge, there's a definite leftward trajectory. We then cut to a closeup of Murtaugh's car, and the toilet lands on it as if it was flying to the right. Even if the angles are misleading, in the first shot the police truck and other cars are parked to the right of the exploding window. In the shot of Roger's car he's also parked to the right, but without all the cars visible around it which there should be. (00:57:15)
