NBC (ended 2004)




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

  • Trivia: Aunt Syl shows up again in Season 3's "The One with the Dollhouse" wherein she dies and bequeaths Monica her dollhouse (which somewhat makes up for the cancelled lasagnas). She's also mentioned in Season 2's "The One Where Old Yeller Dies": Chandler is sporting a mustache to look more like Richard and Monica asides to Ross, "With that mustache, doesn't Chandler remind you of Aunt Sylvia?"

  • Factual Error: Monica tells her Aunt Syl that in the lasagnas, the meat is only every third layer. In lasagna, it is every fourth layer. There is one layer of lasagna noodles, one of ricotta cheese mixture, one of meat sauce and one of grated mozzarella, repeating.

  • 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 even 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 sheet of clear Plexiglas over the top of the table. This allows them to use it as a real table and still be able to see the game. Of course, most of the time they are either eating while sitting in front of the television or at the kitchen counter sitting on bar stools.

  • 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: Monica and Chandler's apartment numbers in this episode are 4 and 5. In the episode before this, "The One with Mrs. Bing", and episodes following, the numbers are 19 and 20. This is likely another episode aired out of production order. Perhaps the producers wanted to use Paolo again in the "Mrs. Bing" episode as an excuse for Ross kissing Nora, so delayed airing this one in which Rachel breaks up with Paolo.

  • Continuity: Monica's aunt didn't want the lasagnas 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. Someone might argue that she was picking "around" the meat layer, but there would still be meat sauce cooked into the noodles and cheese.

  • Continuity: Chandler had a roommate named Kip before Joey moved in with him. Chandler says Kip ran off and got married, but in Season 5's "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..

  • Goof: When Joey puts the bag of groceries beside the fridge, it falls over. Afterward, whenever the camera angle changes, the bag alternates between standing up and lying down throughout the scene.

  • Continuity: When Joey and Chandler meet Ronni in the hall for the first time we see a radiator next to their door. This radiator comes and goes in later episodes.

  • Continuity: Joey's dad seems surprised things are wrong between Ross and his wife. However, when Joey first meets Ross in "The One with the Flashback" Ross is depressed that his wife's a lesbian. In other words, Ross's marriage hasn't been going well the entire time Joey has known Ross.

  • Trivia: In this episode we learn that Joey is really Joey Jr.

  • Continuity: Phoebe uses the intercom and has Monica buzz her into the building. Any other time she and Ross just come right in, and in the series finale, the entire gang has their own key.

  • Trivia: In this episode, Joey's mother refers to him as "Cookie", although this is also the name of one of his sisters (revealed in Season 3). This raises the question, is "Cookie" just a term of endearment in the family, or is that her daughter's real name?

  • Trivia: This is the first episode where Chandler tells the gang about his father. We know now that he dresses as a woman and follows younger men.

  • Season 1 Episode 14: The One with the Candy He...

  • Goof: In the tag ending, when the girls are returning from showing the firemen out, the post and a chair that are supposed to represent the "fourth wall" of the set are visible. However, in the background the door wall, which includes a framed picture, goes well beyond this perimeter, and of course, there's no wall behind the post and chair.
