The One With Ross's Library Book - S7-E7

Audio problem: When Janice is groaning about Clarke sanding her up, the second "Oh" is obviously pre-recorded and the third "Ah I j..." is audio from the next closeup shot that hasn't been cut to yet. On top of this, her mouth moves on neither of them. (00:12:15)

The One With Christmas in Tulsa - S9-E10

Audio problem: In the scene before the opening credits, if you listen carefully to Chandler's line, "If I don't get it done, I'll be fired", you can tell it's an overdub. The background noise and volume levels are different than the rest of his speaking.

The One In Massapequa - S8-E18

Audio problem: When Monica is preparing her speech, she stands up to show Chandler her note card, but when you can hear her say "Hey, check this out," her lips don't move. (00:02:20)

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 Kips - S5-E5

Professor Lazarus

The One Where Ross Is Fine - S10-E2

Audio problem: When Phoebe and Frank Jr. are talking about giving one of the triplets away, Frank makes a very loud noise but his mouth doesn't move. Making a moan this loud requires you to open your mouth. (00:12:50)

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

Audio problem: Toward the end of the episode Ross' Dad and Emily's dad are arguing. Ross comes between them and you can hear the audio saying"From now on everybody gets along!" But it does not match up with the movement of Ross' lips.

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)

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Audio problem: When Chandler says, "Ironically, that was the Maxim thing", you can tell it's an overdub. The volume and the background noise is different, and we don't see a shot of him speaking these words. (00:11:20)

The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

Audio problem: When Phoebe puts her feet up on Ross' apothecary table, Ross asks her not to put her feet up on his "new...old sheet." During the pause right after he says "new," there's a cut to a different angle and you can see his mouth form the words "old sheet." Then it cuts to a different angle and we actually see and hear Ross say "old sheet." (00:12:05)

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)

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.
