  • Season 1 Episode 10: The One with the Monkey

  • Phoebe's Songs: "Snowman"
    I made a man with eyes of coal
    and a smile so bewitchin'.
    How was I supposed to know
    that my mom was dead in the kitchen?
    La lalala laaa la lala La lalala la la...

    "Mother's Ashes"
    My mother's ashes, even her eyelashes,
    are resting in a little yellow jar.
    And sometimes, when it's breezy,
    I feel a little sneezy, and now I...

  • Trivia: Chandler tells one of the party goers that he was bitten by a peacock. In a previous episode "The One with the Blackout", Phoebe mentions this incident saying she was the last to know when Chandler got bitten by the peacock.

  • Factual Error: Minsk is not, nor has it ever been, in Russia. Until 1991, it was in the USSR and presently, it's the capital of Belarus.

  • Season 1 Episode 11: The One with Mrs. Bing

  • Continuity: In this episode Joey claims that it is okay for guys to kiss their friend's sister. However "The One Where Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister" Joey clearly does not think sisters are okay.

  • Trivia: It is revealed in this episode that Rachel's middle name is Karen.

  • Phoebe's Song: "My Man"
    You don't have to be awake to be my man.
    As long as you have brainwaves
    I'll be there to hold your hand.
    Though we just met the other day,
    there's something I have got to say...

  • Trivia: In the opening scene where Monica and Phoebe are walking to the newsstand, you can see one of Joey's VD posters from "The One Where Underdog Gets Away" in the alley.

  • Goof: At the restaurant Paolo eats something out of Rachel's hand, but in the next shot it's in her hand again

  • Continuity: Joey says that it wasn't easy for his mom to give birth to seven children, but she had eight children including him.

  • Trivia: Chandler tries to get his friends to watch Weekend at Bernie's instead of watching his mother on The Tonight Show. It is revealed in "The One with the Embryos" that Weekend at Bernie's is actually Rachel's favorite movie.

  • Season 1 Episode 12: The One with the Dozen La...

  • Continuity: In this episode Phoebe says she never lies, yet in "The One With Rachel's Other Sister" Phoebe is an excellent liar and is teaching Joey how to lie.

  • Trivia: In this episode Ross does not want to know the sex of his baby, but Rachel accidentally lets it slip. In "The One Where Chandler Takes a Bath", Rachel does not want to know the sex of her baby, and Ross mistakenly lets it "slip."

  • Goof: When Rachel and Phoebe are talking about what a pig Paolo is, Rachel grabs the paper towels, pulls them across the kitchen, and then sits down while holding them. The camera angle then changes to Phoebe talking. When it cuts back to Rachel, the paper towel roll is untouched and Rachel is holding nothing. When we cut back to her later in the scene, she is once again holding the paper towels.

  • Trivia: Once Monica sees the new foosball table, she asks the guys where they are going to eat. Although Joey's response was "at the sink", we see in later episodes that the guys place a clear plastic sheet over the top of the table. This allows them to use it as a real table and still be able to see the game.

  • Goof: In the tag scene Monica's winning foosball goal was made with a blue player. However if you look at where she is standing, she is the red team. The exact clip of her winning goal from earlier in the episode when she and Ross were the blue team, was inserted there.

  • Trivia: This is the first episode to mention Phoebe's career as a masseuse.

  • Continuity: The apartment numbers in this episode are 4 and 5 again. In the episodes before and after this episode, the numbers are 19 and 20. This must be another episode that was produced out of order.

  • Continuity: Monica's aunt didn't want the lasagnas was because they weren't vegetarian. Although Phoebe is a vegetarian, she is sitting at the table helping Monica finish one of the lasagnas near the end of the episode.

  • Continuity: Chandler had a roommate named Kip before Joey moved in with him. Chandler says Kip ran off and got married. But in "The One With the Kips" we hear that Kip was phased out.

  • Season 1 Episode 13: The One with the Boobies

  • Continuity: A couple of changes have been made to Chandler and Joey's apartment for this episode. For one thing, their sofa has been rotated 180 degrees (the back used to face the audience). This was likely to accommodate the scene in which Chandler and Joey are sleeping in the fold-out bed, and would have to face the audience. A more dramatic change is in the fact that a bathtub and shower now exist opposite the bathroom door, necessary to accommodate the scenes where various people are "caught" in the shower. In the previous episode, "The One with the Dozen Lasagnas", there is a sink on the wall opposite the bathroom door. Interestingly enough, the next time we see the bathroom ("The One with the Stoned Guy"), the bathtub/shower are gone and the sink is back where it used to be with skis standing in the corner..
