The One With Joey's Award - S7-E18

Corrected entry: Rachel's dress changes before and after going to the awards. (00:09:00 - 00:10:20)

Correction: Nope, you're mistaken. When we see Rachel at the apartment before she and Joey leave, she's not actually dressed yet. She walks out of her bedroom wearing her white robe, gold choker necklace, and blue flip-flops, while holding her makeup bag. Later we see Rachel at the Soapie Awards wearing the red spaghetti strap gown and she's still wearing it when she and Joey get home. Though I have to say, it's very complimentary to the actress that she even looks that great in just a robe.

The One With Phoebe's Uterus - S4-E11

Corrected entry: When Phoebe goes to visit her birth mother in Montauk, her mom says "I wish someone would've been there to tell me how terrible it is to give up babies". The scene cuts to a shot of Phoebe holding the puppy, revealing a side view of a stand-in, not the actress playing her mom.

Correction: It is indeed Teri Garr in the side shot, not a stand-in.

The One with Mrs. Bing - S1-E11

Corrected entry: Phoebe and Monica are in the hospital room speculating about the coma guy's name, yet he is wearing a hospital bracelet with his identifying information which is easily seen on his wrist, lying above the covers.

Correction: Phoebe says they're calling the man John Doe, so that is the name that must be on the bracelet and it is not his real name.

Correction: She was wondering what his real name was.

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Corrected entry: Chandler calls Monica to tell he's trapped in an ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacre on a mobile phone, however Monica answers by picking up the house phone. In a power blackout, the phone wouldn't have any power so Chandler shouldn't be able to reach Monica.

Correction: Phones don't lose power during blackouts - regular landline phones are powered over the phone lines from the telephone exchange, which will have backup power available. Cordless phones would lose power, as the base station needs to be plugged in. But in this case Monica is using a wired phone. It's recommended to keep a wired landline phone in the house specifically to use in case of a blackout, as she clearly does.

The One After the Superbowl, part 2 - S2-E13

Corrected entry: When Chandler is walking with the door you can see he is not wearing panties but boxers. (00:19:20)

Ssiscool Premium member

Correction: When Ross and Joey are standing in the bathroom stalls looking into Chandler's stall, since Joey is going commando Chandler offers Ross $50 for his underpants just as the shocked man walks in on them. Even though Ross initially said no to giving Chandler his underpants, we do not hear Ross decline this very generous offer. So in the next shot it's been a little while, and not only do we see that shocked man already seated continuing his meal, we can safely presume the striped boxers that Chandler's wearing actually belong to Ross, who made an easy $50 to help Chandler out.

The One With The Birth Mother - S10-E9

Corrected entry: One of the storylines in this episode is based on Joey not being willing to share food. However in previous episodes he has happily shared food several times.

Correction: Joey is unwilling to share food unexpectedly, i.e. In season 5 episode 20 he is only willing to share a bite of his sandwich to prove how much Chandler means to him. In this episode he is suggested to order an extra chips to share and he happily accepts it, even though that would still be sharing food.

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Corrected entry: At the end of the scene where the duck is taking a bath, the bucket is on the old carpet. Monica removed the carpet in Season 4 episode 13.

Correction: There are two versions with the shots of the duck bathing in the bucket - the DVD version and the widescreen version (such as on Netflix). In both versions, when the guys are at the vet's office they're remembering past fun times with the duck, which includes the memory of the duck bathing. In the widescreen version, the last scene from the DVD has been cut and instead we just see a continuance of the earlier "memory" of the duck bathing, hence once again we see the old carpeting and also the guys' canoe.

The One With Rachel's Book - S7-E2

Corrected entry: When Joey goes into Rachel's room, the yellow couch has a Space Man Marvin on it with a body. In some other episodes, it's just a pillow head.

moviemaster101

Correction: So Joey has two of "Marvin the Martian" - one is full body and one is the big head. The fact that in some episodes it's the full body lying on the couch and in some episodes it's the head, doesn't make a mistake, however, if they were to switch between shots during a scene in an episode, that would be a continuity mistake.

The One With Monica's Boots - S8-E10

Corrected entry: In the scene with Joey's sister where Rachel says 'Give him the sandwich' the bathroom is gone and there are only red bricks. (00:12:19)

Correction: That's not red bricks, it's the shower curtain over the bathtub.

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Corrected entry: When Joey walks in holding the candles and says his old roommate was Jewish, Joey's actually holding a kinara for Kwanzaa not a menorah for Hanukkah. There are only 7 candles on the candle holder that Joey is holding and there are 9 on the menorah.

Correction: The 7 or 9 branches have different meanings. The 7 branch menorah represents the one which stood in Jerusalem's temple. The 9 branch is called a chanukiah, and represents the Hanukkah miracle.

The One With The Stain - S8-E7

Corrected entry: In this episode, Phoebe abandons having lunch with Ross because of a date with Eric; however in 'The One With All The Cheesecakes', Phoebe makes a huge speech about how you 'do not cancel plans with friends'.

Correction: "The One With All The Cheesecakes" is one season prior to "The One With The Stain." In the former, Phoebe was tempted to cancel her monthly lunch with Joey, for a date with David. (That's after her speech!) She didn't, but Joey mistreated her anyway. This may have caused her to revise her principle of "do not cancel plans with friends" over the course of one year. But more importantly, Phoebe, a human being, is well capable of overlooking principles for self-interest. What can plausibly be explained by selfishness, forgetfulness and deceitfulness must not be attributed to a filming mistake.

The One Where Rachel's Sister Babysits - S10-E5

Corrected entry: No piercing studio in the world would pierce the ears (or any other body part) of a one year old without consent of the parents.

Correction: It's true that piercing studios will likely require consent, but if Jill just said, "this is my daughter," I doubt they'd have a policy of requiring a birth certificate or anything.

The One Where Ross Can't Flirt - S5-E19

Corrected entry: Joey refers to his Italian grandmother as "Nonni" which in Italian actually means "grandparents." "Nonna" is grandma.

Correction: It's a dialect. I am Sicilian and have always used Nonni where refering to grandmother and Nonnu when referring to grandfather.

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Corrected entry: When Monica and Chandler walk into the dance hall, a cameraman is seen following them.

Brad Premium member

The One Where Ross and Rachel...You Know - S2-E15

Corrected entry: When Joey and Chandler are ordering a pizza they tell the pizza place to send the food to apartment 20 which is Monica and Rachel's apartment but it is clear that Monica isn't home because she is catering and Rachel is on her date with Ross, so how do they get the pizza.

Correction: When Joey and Chandler order the pizza, Rachel and Monica are both out, but the pizza arrives after Monica comes home with Richard. The door is knocked and Monica curses, realising it is a Joey and Chandler move.

The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part 2 - S7-E24

Corrected entry: When Ross and Phoebe find Chandler in his office, the name on the door reads 'Mike Smith.'

Correction: This is actually a gag that's explained in the longer version of the episode - Ross points out the incorrect name, and Chandler realises he's in the wrong office.

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When the guys are building furniture, Joey is wearing a pair of light blue jeans. When he leaves to go on his date, they are dark blue. (00:11:50)

Jennifer 1

Correction: Joey's wearing the same color jeans when he leaves for his date with Julie.

The One With The Ring - S6-E23

Corrected entry: When Chandler and Phoebe go to the jewelry store Phoebe's hair has two braids on each side that are being held together by what appears to be a hair pin, later on the scene where Phoebe is trying on a tiara she only has one braid on each side and no hair pins.

Correction: First, when Chandler's in the store Phoebe doesn't have two braids on the left side of her head - it's only one braid decorated with small colorful rhinestones, but she does have the two single braids on her right side, held together with a small silver hair clip. Second, while Chandler's gone Phoebe's been having fun trying on the store's jewelry - note all the necklaces, brooches, etc., and we see that one of those single braids has come loose so there's just one braid on that side now. But because it's been quite a while since Chandler had left the store, there's really no continuity issue.

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Corrected entry: When Phoebe and Chandler are about to kiss there is a bottle of wine and two glasses on the counter. It then cuts to a view of Phoebe with no bottle or glasses on the counter, just a phone, and then later in the same scene it cuts back to Phoebe again and there are two glasses and a bottle of wine again. (00:19:25)

omegaman3000

Correction: The wine bottle and two glasses are on the counter between the phone and the end of the counter, and the reason we don't see the wine bottle/glasses is because Phoebe's blocking that area of the counter, so we can only see the phone. In every shot where that specific area of the counter is actually visible, the wine bottle and glasses are there.

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Corrected entry: When Monica and Chandler are arguing about Phoebe, she has a bottle of water in her right hand, but in the next shot the bottle is in her left hand. (00:15:00)

omegaman3000

Correction: The change of hands doesn't actually happen in the "next shot." We see the water bottle in Monica's right hand, but when the next shot faces Chandler as he comments about his "pinchable butt and bulging biceps," we don't see Monica's arms/hands, and then it's in the last shot of Monica and Chandler that the water bottle's in Monica's left hand.

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.
