NBC (ended 2004)




  • Season 3 Episode 11: The One Where Chandler Ca...

  • Goof: When Rachel and Monica are talking at the diner, there is a red glass sitting in front of Rachel. In the next shot, when she says "It's not funny!" to Mark, the glass is gone. Then after that it's back again.

  • Goof: In the guy's apartment when Ross and Chandler are talking about Mary Angela, Ross raises his drink. In the next shot, he raises it up again.

  • Season 3 Episode 10: The One Where Rachel Quits

  • Trivia: In this episode we learn from Monica that Phoebe's mom killed herself around Christmas.

  • Continuity: Chandler says that he's "too afraid" to quit his job, but in Season 1's, "The One with the Stoned Guy", he quits simply because he's given a promotion in a job that was only meant to be temporary.

  • Continuity: Phoebe says, "I am against innocent trees being cut down in their prime and their corpses grotesquely dressed in tinsel and twinkly lights", however, in Season 6's "The One with the Routine", she happily joins in with the gang in decorating Monica's Christmas tree.

  • Trivia: Chandler's comment that they would now have to start paying for coffee with Rachel quitting, was clearly a joke. Had she been giving her friends free coffee, it would have been noticed and stopped long ago, if not gotten her fired.

  • Trivia: Chandler advises Rachel to quit her job at Central Perk and therefore have "the fear" necessary to pursue her dream career in fashion. Ironically, in spite of the fact that Chandler says he's "too afraid" to follow his own advice, he finally takes it six years later when he quits his job in Tulsa to pursue a career he might actually love.

  • Goof: At the start of the scene in which Ross breaks the little girl's leg, we can see that the stairs are just separated by railings. Later in that scene, when Ross and Chandler start walking up the stairs, there are walls on both sides of them.
    Note: If you examine the stairs closely, you realize that the railing only goes up several feet and then a wall begins.

  • Goof: The gang enters Monica's apartment and it is full of dead Christmas trees. After everybody has entered the apartment, the apartment door is shut. But in the next shot when Rachel answers the phone, the door is open.

  • Continuity: Rachel's year of birth is inconsistent. Her 30th birthday in "The One Where They All Turn Thirty" (2001) implies that Rachel was born in 1971. However, her 29th birthday in "The One Where Rachel Smokes" (1999) implies that she was born in 1970. In this episode (1996) Chandler says Rachel is 28, implying she was born in 1968, but 15 months later in "The One with the Fake Party" (1998) Rachel says she is 28, implying she was born in 1970.

  • Season 3 Episode 9: The One with the Football

  • Goof: After the first touchdown, Monica immediately gives the score as 7-0. Scoring 7 points per TD is typical of sandlot games (it's 6 in the real game) because there's usually no kicking game and therefore neither field goals (3) nor converted touchdowns (1). How then is Ross's team "up by two" before the climactic play? The only possible way would be a safety: a tackle in a team's defended end zone which scores two points. These are so rare, however, that such a play should have been shown to make sense out of the score as it stood.

  • Goof: They talk about Ross's nose being broken during "Geller Bowl VI," after Monica and Ross's father threw the trophy into the lake. The trophy shows 6 entries which is impossible since the 6th game was never officially finished.
    Note: There are only five entries on the cup. The top label says "GELLER BOWL", not the winner of the first game. The five game-winning entries that follow are, "ROSS", "MONICA", "ROSS", "MONICA", "ROSS".

  • Goof: When Rachel is asking Ross if it was a strategy to not stop Joey, she is moving her hands. However when the camera angle changes, she suddenly has her hands on Ross's arms.

  • Goof: When they are talking about the Geller Cup, Monica is looking at Ross and then looks down. However when the camera angle changes, she is still looking at Ross and then looks down again.

  • Season 3 Episode 8: The One with the Giant Po...

  • Continuity: In this episode, Rachel has baked delicious-looking brownies which everyone seems to enjoy. In episodes prior to and following this episode, however, we are led to believe that her skills in the kitchen are virtually nonexistent. For example, three years later in Season 6's "The One Where Ross Got High", when making her infamous "trifle", she had to ask Monica's advice about melting butter.

  • Trivia: This is the first time that Ugly Naked Guy has been shown on camera for the audience to see. He is seen again in Season 5's "The One Where Everybody Finds Out", but in neither case do we see his face.

  • Goof: When the four of them were poking Ugly Naked Guy with the giant device to make sure whether he was alive or not, he was breathing visibly.

  • Goof: The giant poking device is supposedly long enough to reach right across to the next building. But after they wake up Ugly Naked Guy, Joey says "retract the device!" and after pulling back about a foot of it the end suddenly pops up at the bottom of the screen.

  • Goof: In the tag scene when Phoebe enters, Chandler has his arms wrapped around the Lionel Richie album with Janice's shoe in his left hand in front of the album. When the shot changes, his left hand is now holding her shoe behind the album.

  • Goof: When Chandler is breaking up with Janice and she walks away trying to shake him off, her jumper is untied. When Chandler shouts "you can't go, I have your shoe" the camera goes back to Janice where the jumper has been tied at the bottom.
