The One With The Tiny T-Shirt - S3-E19

Audio problem: At the start when Joey comes into Monica's apartment and does his little dance number, watch his mouth on his way out; it's totally out of sync with what he is saying. (00:03:15)

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 Joey's New Girlfriend - S4-E5

The One After Vegas - S6-E1

Audio problem: Right after Ross and Rachel leave the wedding chapel, Joey and Phoebe rush in. Joey is saying "C'mon, Pheebs, hurry, hurry." and she is saying "Okay, okay." However, neither one is moving their lips. (00:00:25)

The One Where Rachel Has a Baby, part 2 - S8-E24

Audio problem: As the nurse comes back from wrapping the new baby, we hear her say "Here she is," yet her mouth doesn't move to the words she is apparently saying. Even though her mouth is only visible during the "she is", she's not saying the words. Then she mouths some sort of "oh", but nothing is heard. (00:09:00)

The One With Rachel's Crush - S4-E13

Audio problem: In the scene where Rachel walks into the guy's new apartment and they start talking about Joshua, it cuts to a shot of her in profile as she says "It's just so frustrating". Her mouth doesn't move as she says the words. (00:09:40)

The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Audio problem: When Joey is proposing to Rachel and he tells Phoebe to give him the ring back, she says "No!" and pulls her hand away. When she pulls it away, she hits her chest and there's a thump sound that's clearly the sound of her clip on microphone being hit (it's way too audible to be just a thump on her chest). (00:17:50)

The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

Audio problem: When Phoebe is knocking on her sister Ursula's door to tell her about finding her birth mum, the third knock is heard a split second before you see Phoebe's hand action. (00:12:15)

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Audio problem: When Rachel is banging on the door at the start, the sound does not match the actions. (00:01:00)

The One With The Home Study - S10-E7

Audio problem: While the adoption social worker, Laura, is interviewing Monica and Chandler, Monica mentions to her that she's welcome to look under any of the furniture where she won't find cigarettes or porn, and then it cuts to Laura's close-up as we hear her say, "Well, actually before we look around," but her mouth is not saying those words.

The One With Barry & Mindy's Wedding - S2-E24

Audio problem: When Rachel asks Barry and Mindy why people keep telling her to 'get well soon' and Barry says his parents told everyone she has syphilis, and in the next shot it shows Rachel trying to take this information in, Barry seems to still be talking, but no sound is coming out of his mouth. (00:09:25)

The One Where Ross Is Fine - S10-E2

Audio problem: When Ross is drunk and talking to Rachel, Joey and Charlie on the couch in his apartment; he begins to say "Where do you think we can go?" but his mouth does not move. (00:12:10)

The One With The Lesbian Wedding - S2-E11

Audio problem: During the lesbian wedding, whenever we see a shot of Carol and Susan while the minister is talking, her mouth is not moving. (00:18:35)

The One Where Joey Loses His Insurance - S6-E4

Audio problem: After Rachel speaks with an Indian accent and comments on Bombay, it cuts to an exterior shot of Central Perk and inside we can see the top of the set, as well as a lighting rig at the ceiling.

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Audio problem: When Joey says "this is not fair to her, let's just forget the tape", his mouth stops moving after he says "forget", making it look like the audio is coming from nowhere. (00:12:07)

The One With Monica's Thunder - S7-E1

Audio problem: When Joey walks out of the bedroom dressed as a 19 year old, when Chandler says the line "Yes, on a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being the dumbest a person can look, you are definitely 19", you can see that the audio doesn't match the words. It looks as though Matthew Perry says "not 19" and they had to re-dub over post production with "19." Subtle, but it's there. (00:08:50)

Friends mistake picture

The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: 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. (00:05:15)

The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Question: When Joey asks why he can't give Kathy the pen, Chandler says, "Because she's not eleven. And it's not the seventh night of Chanukah." What is Chandler talking about when he says, "It's not the seventh night of Chanukah?"

Answer: Usually by the seventh night of Hanukkah you don't know what to get the other person, and you will probably resort to getting the other person something insignificant. Chandler is basically saying that the pen is a stupid gift.

Answer: Chanukah is a Jewish celebration that occurs around the same time as the Christian Christmas. The celebration lasts for eight days and it is customary to give a small gift on each of the eight days. There is no special gift required and the line about it being "the seventh night" of Chanukah is just Chandler's sarcasm.
