NBC (ended 2004)




  • Season 2 Episode 14: The One with the Prom Video

  • Goof: When Monica turns off the prom video, the reflection on the TV shows her getting up. But in the next scene she is sitting down.

  • Continuity: Joey was surprised that Monica was fat in high school, but he has already seen fat Monica in her yearbook in "The One Where the Monkey Gets Away".

  • Goof: When Phoebe tells Chandler that a girl is "checking him out" she says she's sitting at 11 o'clock, but she is actually at Chandler's 5 o'clock, since Chandler's back is to her.

  • Only on Television: When Ross, Monica and Phoebe see the gaudy bracelet Joey gave Chandler, they all make fun of him. Chandler just takes the abuse, as though he had picked out the bracelet for himself. Since Joey wasn't even present, the normal thing would be to tell them it was an embarrassing gift and get their sympathy rather than their derision.

  • Season 2 Episode 13: The One After the Super B...

  • Continuity: Since Susie Moss took all of Chandler's clothes, that means she would have also taken his keys as well as his wallet, containing his money, ID, credit cards (and aging condom). That fact is never dealt with in this or subsequent episodes.

  • Goof: This episode takes place in New York in January. In all the outdoor scenes, everyone, including Chandler, is wearing a winter coat. Chandler's, in particular, is a black, knee-length topcoat. He was not wearing it when he followed Susie Moss to the washroom which means it would still be in the restaurant coat-check. Ross or Joey could have simply brought him his topcoat; it would not have been necessary for him to leave the washroom wearing only panties (of course, that would have robbed us of a classic Friends moment: Chandler leaving the restaurant wearing a washroom stall door). In the final scene of the episode where Phoebe asks Chandler if she can borrow his "G-string", we see that he is still wearing that same black topcoat.

  • Factual Error: Phoebe is an unusual vegetarian. In most cases, you do stick a fork into vegetables to see if they're done.

  • Goof: Monica and Rachel get into a fight and Phoebe breaks it up. Later that night Monica goes out with Jean-Claude Van Damme. In the next fight scene, all three girls are wearing the same clothes again.
    Note: Actually, only Rachel and Phoebe are dressed exactly the same--which makes sense since they both stayed in while Monica went on her brief date with Jean-Claude. Monica, on the other hand, is wearing a different top than she wore during the previous fight, so obviously changed for her date and perhaps changed again, afterwards.

  • Goof: When Chandler leaves the restaurant carrying the door from the bathroom stall, a glimpse of clothing, possibly a pair of shorts, is seen as he maneuvers the door through the tables. This is despite the fact he is supposed to be naked except for a hot pink thong.

  • Trivia: During the Ross and Marcel goodbye scene at the limo, the music heard is a slow version of the chorus of the Friends theme song "I'll be There for You."

  • Trivia: After Ross's date with Marcel is broken, he, Chandler, Joey, and their dates have dinner at a restaurant named Marcel's. This is subtly seen on the cover of the restaurant menus.

  • Season 2 Episode 12: The One After the Super B...

  • Continuity: When Chandler suggests that he and Joey stay in and cook dinner for themselves, they both laugh hysterically, implying that neither of them can cook. However, in "The One with the Boobies" and "The One with Russ", we see Joey cooking Italian as if he's quite comfortable in the kitchen, and in "The One Where Eddie Moves In", Chandler and Joey fight over whose eggs are better, Eddie's or Joey's. In "The One with Phoebe's Ex-Partner", Joey mentions cooking a romantic dinner for Ginger (the girl with the prosthetic leg) at her father's cabin. In "The One with Ross's Library Book", we learn that Chandler at least knows how to make pancakes.

  • Goof: You have to wonder how Erika could have tracked Joey down to his apartment in New York when she believed him to be Dr. Drake Ramoray, a surgeon in Salem, Massachusetts.

  • Phoebe's Songs:
     Now, Grandma's a person who everyone likes, 
     She bought you a train and a bright, shiny bike. 
     But lately she hasn't been coming to dinner, 
     And last time you saw her she looked so much thinner. 
     Now, your mom and your dad said she moved to Peru,  
     But the truth is she died and some day you will too. 
     Lalala LAlalala LAlalala LAlalala La La La La 
     Lalala LAlalala LAlalala LAlalala La La La La

    "Another Thing You Don't Wanna Do" 
     There'll be times when you get older  
     When you'll want to sleep with people 
     Just to make them like you But don't. 
     'Cause that's another thing That you don't wanna do 
     That's another thing That you don't wanna do.

    "The Cow in the Meadow" 
     Oh, the cow in the meadow goes moo, 
     Oh, the cow in the meadow goes moo. 
     Then the farmer hits him on the head and grinds him up, 
     And that's how we get hamburgers.
     Now-w-w-w, chickens!  

     Sometimes men love women 
     Sometimes men love men, 
     And then there are bisexuals 
     Though some just say they're kidding themselves... 
     La lalala lalalalala la La la lalala lala la la

  • Trivia: The jacket Joey wears to his date with the stalker is the same one he wore to Carol and Susan's wedding. He can also be seen wearing this jacket in subsequent episodes.

  • Goof: When Joey is out to dinner with Erika, her hair keeps changing. In the first two camera angles you see her with two bangs hanging down, then in the third shot she only has one bang, and then there are two again.

  • Season 2 Episode 11: The One with the Lesbian ...

  • Continuity: Mrs. Green says that the last time she saw Monica, it was, " or be eaten." However, we know from "The One with All the Thanksgivings" that Monica had lost all the weight by her Freshman year of college. It's hard to believe that with Monica and Rachel being best friends in college that Mrs. Green would have never seen Monica at her reduced weight.

  • Goof: Joey and Chandler are lamenting the fact that there are only lesbians at Carol and Susan's wedding, but they would obviously have straight friends as well. To begin with, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe and Mrs. Green are straight. Surely there are some others such as work acquaintances and family friends. Admittedly, it would take a little looking, but it shouldn't be a foregone conclusion that there are only lesbian women there.

  • Factual Error: Same-sex marriage wasn't legal in the state of New York until 2011.

  • Goof: When Susan asks Ross to dance, she says that he can lead. As they begin dancing, however, she assumes the traditional male position, her left hand holding his right, her right hand on his waist. Then, when the camera changes angles, Ross is suddenly leading. It's possible that a short scene was deleted where Ross points out to Susan that she is leading, and they switch.
