9 mistakes in The One Where Ross Dates a Student

The One Where Ross Dates a Student - S6-E18

Other mistake: Ross' semester supposedly just ended, and he's handing in his grades. But the episode just before this one was about Valentine's Day, and the one immediately after this one is about spring break, so this episode is happening sometime between mid - February and March/April. It doesn't matter when the show was aired or produced; Valentine's day is still in February. There's no semester that ends at that time of the year, and NYU wasn't on the quarter system then.

Suggested correction: This episode (production code 225567) was produced before episode 17, "The One With Unagi", (production code 225568) and just aired out of order. So this episode happens before Valentine's Day.

That's an explanation, but it doesn't make it not a mistake.

It does indeed not make it a mistake, as episodes airing out of order is done by the studio and is no fault of the show's writers.

That doesn't change the fact that semesters end in December.
