Friends

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 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 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)

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 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)

Suggested correction: We are also shown how the Chick and Duck are in both apartments over time. And also, just because they are not shown on screen doesn't mean you can't hear them.

The One With Rachel's Book - S7-E2

Audio problem: Chandler, Monica and her parents are at dinner to discuss the upcoming wedding. When they describe how they remodeled the kitchen when she broke up with Richard, the camera pans to Monica and her mouth is moving but there's no sound. It then switches camera angles and Monica audibly asks, "Well what about when I started dating Chandler?" Which is what she said in the frame before with no sound. (00:11:00)

Friends mistake picture

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the coffee house, Phoebe is talking to Monica who is drinking a cup of coffee. Towards the end of the scene, the camera is on Phoebe who is smiling & laughing at Monica. In the right hand corner is a side view of 'Monica' however, it is not Courtney Cox in the scene, but a completely different actress. [Widescreen version only, although the "wrong" nose is visible in the original]. (00:06:20)

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.
