NBC (ended 2004)




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

  • 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 aired out of sequence.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Goof: When the firemen are going through the trash bin, Monica is already holding the burnt picture of her ex boyfriend, before the fireman can even take it out.

  • Trivia: This is the first time Janice says her catchphrase "Oh, my God!"

  • Trivia: Phoebe mentions her friend Abby who shaves her head. In a later series of episodes she has a friend named Bonnie who shaves her head, whom she sets up with Ross.

  • Season 1 Episode 15: The One with the Stoned Guy

  • Continuity: When the gang is watching television Ross states, "And that is why evolution is just a theory". However in Season 2's "The One Where Heckles Dies" Ross fights passionately with Phoebe saying that "Evolution is scientific fact, like, like, like the air we breathe, like gravity".

  • Goof: When Phoebe asks Chandler if he wants to be a chef, Monica says "Hi, there" with her right hand raised. When the camera angle changes, her hand is suddenly on her lap.
