NBC (ended 2004)




  • Season 9 Episode 20: The One with the Soap Ope...

  • Goof: When Chandler is on his own in the theater, he is unhappy and wants to leave. But as he is leaving, the show starts and he seems too scared to leave now. But at the end of the episode when he gets his revenge on Monica and Pheobe by taking them to the theater, Chandler is more than happy to run out after the show started.

  • Magna Doodle: A drawing of Hello Kitty

  • Goof: When, Ross, Phoebe, and Rachel are together, and Ross is pouring the wine, the wine is tilted. One second later Ross is no longer holding it, and there was no sign of him putting it down.

  • Season 9 Episode 19: The One with Rachel's Dream

  • Phoebe's Songs:
     And there's a country called Argentina, 
     It's a place I've never seen. 
     But I'm told for 50 pesos, 
     You can buy a human spleen, 
     Human spleen.

    "The Woman Smelled Like Garbage" 
     It wasn't just that she was fat, 
     The woman smelled like garbage. 
     It wasn't just that she was fat, 
     The woman smelled like garbage.

    "The Food at Javu" 
     The food here at Javu will kill you! 
     The food here at Javu will kill you!

  • Magna Doodle: A drawing of a covered wagon hitched to a single horse that is sitting down.

  • Trivia: Monica took the same psychology class twice in college.

  • Goof: When Phoebe sits down in Central Perk to show her top-hat to Monica, her big red purse falls on the floor, but when the camera angle changes, it's beside her on the chair.

  • Season 9 Episode 18: The One with the Lottery

  • Continuity: In Season 6's "The One with Joey's Porsche", Joey makes a big deal about how "Porsche" is pronounced "Porsh-uh", but at the beginning of this episode when he asks Monica if he can borrow her car to go buy lottery tickets out-of-state, he pronounces it "Porsh".

  • Trivia: Joey wants to pool all the winnings ($300 million) and buy the NY Knicks. According to Forbes, $300 million was the original purchase price of the Knicks in 1997. At the time this program aired (April 2003), the team would have been worth considerably more. As of February 2018, the value of the team is listed by Forbes as $3.6 billion.
    Of course, Joey's plan is all based on the assumption that if they won, they'd receive $300 million in cash, but if they took a lump-sum payment, after taxes, they'd end up with less than half that. Naturally, you don't want to consider such pedestrian details when you're dreaming.

  • Goof: When Ross arrived at Monica and Chandler's apartment just before the lotto drawing, the friends were surprised to see him. Monica said since he was there, she wanted him to participate in their lotto ticket pool, so she would put in $50 for him (and Ross then said he'd pay for the tickets himself). Since no one (including Monica) knew Ross would be there for the drawing, how did Monica know to get 50 extra tickets when she was in Connecticut? And why didn't this alert everyone else to the fact that Monica bought many more tickets than the agreed upon number?
    Note: When Monica is explaining how they will sort through the tickets to see if they've won, she says they'll divide up the tickets into 6 groups of 40 and whoever finishes first can go through the other 10. In other words, they only have 250 tickets. Obviously, Ross's contribution would be divided between the others so that everyone paid equally for their share of the 250 tickets. The only inconsistency is when Monica says that she'll throw in $50 for Ross, since his contribution with only 250 tickets would be about $42.

  • Goof: At the very start of the episode when the camera zooms in on Central Perk, through the window you see a guy in a gray T-shirt. However, when we see the window from the inside, there is, instead, an old man in a black hat talking to a woman.

  • Goof: When Phoebe is on the balcony with the lottery tickets, the window above Monica's head moves up and down between shots.

  • Goof: When Phoebe and Joey are in the process of breaking the wishbone, you can see Joey's thumb move up and down along the bone between shots.

  • Season 9 Episode 17: The One with the Memorial...

  • Trivia: In the opening scene at Ross's apartment, we can see that Rachel's "Excelsior" sewing machine poster is still on the wall, even though it has been several weeks since she moved out. This poster was in her rooms at both Monica's and Joey's apartments.

  • Magna Doodle: A drawing of a toothbrush brushing a "Happy Tooth" and a dentist appointment reminder, DR. BANAL 3:00.

  • Continuity: In Season 7's "The One with Joey's New Brain", Phoebe tells the owner of the cellphone they found that she lives in apartment 14. But in this episode, when Mike and Monica are standing at Phoebe's door, her apartment number is 16.

  • Trivia: Phoebe says "Damn you, Monica Geller-Bing." However, it is revealed in Season 10's "The One with Princess Consuela" that Monica never changed her last name.

  • Season 9 Episode 16: The One with the Boob Job

  • Continuity: We must assume that at some point, all the money that Chandler loaned Joey over the years was paid back, although we never hear about it. Otherwise, Joey "loaning" Chandler $2,000 wouldn't make any sense. But less than a year ago, in "The One Where Rachel Is Late", Joey was going to pay Chandler back, but when he calculated how much it would be, he grinned and cleared the calculator, instead forgiving him for sleeping through the premiere of his movie.

  • Trivia: Phoebe wants her children to be named Mike Junior and Sophie.

  • Continuity: Joey writes two checks to Monica and Chandler for $2,000 each, yet in "The One with Ross's Inappropriate Song" he says that he keeps his money taped to the back of his toilet. Of course, it's possible he's thought better of it since then.
