Other mistake: The new York to London time sequence makes no sense. The friends are all wearing the same clothes throughout most of the episode. Emily flies from London back to New York and Ross flies to London, most trans Atlantic flights are overnight. It's very unrealistic that Ross got to London in the same day, and she flew back so quickly after getting back to London' even though Ross had only just said goodbye to her. The characters' clothes show this is all taking place in the same day.Marc Henderson
Visible crew/equipment: While Joey, Ross, and Chandler are waiting at the vet's office, in the following flashback scenes with the duck, when Joey bathes the duck the end of the bathroom set wall can be seen at the right; and when Chandler's sitting in the canoe with the duck in the pail, a crewmember can be seen where the set wall ends. (00:19:45)Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: While Rachel is talking to Chandler she tries to get Joshua's attention so she pretends to laugh, and in the shot facing Joshua the end of the set wall can be seen, with the brick set wall from Central Perk on the other side.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Ross and Joey are explaining phase two of Chandler's break up (going to strip clubs), the camera switches from the girls to Ross and Joey. Behind them is Monica's kitchen window where you can briefly see a reflection of someone passing by (crew member). At first I thought it could have been Chandler, since he was not in the scene, but after a few moments you see that Chandler has been in the bathroom the whole time. (01:35:00 - 01:39:00)EmilyMyres
Continuity mistake: Ross comes into Chandler and Joey's apartment to ask the guys and Rachel what they are doing in four weeks, the Magna Doodle behind him first says "poop", then is blank. We cut to Joey checking his diary, cut back to Ross, and it now has "get out" written on it. [Fullscreen version]. (00:10:35)
Revealing mistake: In the scene when they confront the stripper at Chandler's office. Ross starts shouting about his grandmother's ring, and as Chandler says "way to be cool, man", you can see Joey ducking behind Ross, covering his mouth with laughter. A brief cut away, then back and he's standing with the others again looking serious.Gamabunta
Factual error: Ross falls asleep on the train and ends up in Montreal, where the woman he meets tells him "it's only a 2-hour ferry ride to Nova Scotia." Yeah, more like a journey of between 13 hours (12-hour car ride plus 1-hour ferry) and 23 hours (multiple bus legs plus 1-hour ferry.) The character could have been lying to Ross, but it's not presented that way at all.
Factual error: Rugby starts with a kickoff and not with a scrum, only the forwards on the team participate in the scrum not the whole team, and there is no scrum half to retrieve the ball from the scrum. The scrum took far too long. There is no structure to the scrum like there should be (props, locks, flankers etc). He doesn't seem to have a team and for some reason everyone just jumps on him, there is no line with one team and another it just seems like a free for all which is nothing like rugby, rugby halves are ended when the ball goes out of play which does not happen here - he just decides to end it for no real reason. Several fouls are committed in the ruck such as coming in from the sides, diving off their feet and holding onto the ball which aren't being penalised. You're not allowed to kick people or harm them intentionally in rugby, there are no cups in rugby but there are mouth guards, which no one is wearing.
Visible crew/equipment: When Kathy walks in while Chandler's in the box, after Phoebe tells her, "He can't talk right now," in the shot facing Kathy the end of the set wall can be seen, and there's a plastic cup with a straw sitting on a shelf off stage.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Monica's explaining why she turned down the catering job, the large studio lighting is reflected on the TV when she tells Phoebe how much money she needs. Then just as Joey and Kathy walk in, the camera can be seen at the left side of the screen.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: The handcuffs that Joanna uses on Chandler have a single metal bar connected via pivot to a double bar with the lock area. When Joanna first cuffs Chandler, the double bars on both sides face up at his wrists, but when Chandler's on the phone and when Rachel unlocks his right cuff, the handcuffs are going round his wrist the opposite way with the single bars facing up - quite impossible. Then the same thing occurs when Rachel handcuffs Chandler to the filing cabinet.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Rachel explains her plan for the fake party, just as Emily opens the apartment door the message written on the Magna Doodle reads "Joey enjoys the," but when Emily and Ross are standing in front of the door the message reads "Joey eats little."Super Grover
