Take a look at some of the most obvious mistakes from ‘Friends’ below:
1. The one with the vanishing necklace – season 2, episode 7
Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat. At first, when Rachel says, “Together?” she is not wearing a necklace. When the camera cuts back to her saying, “Both of you?” she is suddenly wearing a necklace. It disappears when she says, “Isn’t that just lovely?”
2. The one with Monica’s stand-in – season 8, episode 5
Phoebe is talking to Monica in the coffee house, who is drinking a cup of coffee. The camera is on Phoebe, and the right-hand side of the screen is a side view of Monica. However, we see not Courteney Cox but an entirely different actor altogether.
3. The one with Joey’s quick-change – season 5, episode 17
Joey is wearing a black top with zipping as he counts the floors of Ross’s building to work out where the attractive girl lives. When he enters Ross’s building and knocks on what he believes to be the girl’s front door, he is wearing a dark purple buttoned shirt. However, as soon as Ross answers the door, Joey is wearing the black zip-up top again. Got cold on the way up, perhaps?
4. The one with the mystery cans – season 9, episode 15
Joey goes to Monica and Chandler’s apartment to get something to drink for the audition. When he closes the fridge, he has two bottles in his left hand. When the camera cuts back to him later in the scene, he has two cans in his left hand and holds them differently.
5. The one with the self-wrapping present – season 8, episode 2
Monica is sitting in the living room with her wedding presents. She unwraps a large parcel to reveal a brown cardboard box. The camera moves to Joey, and when it moves back to Monica, the property is wrapped up again. If only our Christmas pressies could get wrapped so quickly.
6. The one with the clones – season 10, episode 20
Some extras can be seen behind Ross and Phoebe in JFK Airport when Phoebe claims they are on their honeymoon. When the camera cuts to Rachel at Newark Airport looking for her boarding pass, those same people are there too. We are on to you, bandana lady.
7. The one with the magic doodle – season 4, episode 20
Ross comes to Chandler and Joey’s apartment to ask what the guys are doing in four weeks. At first, the Magna Doodle behind Ross says “poop,” then is blank. The camera cuts to Joey checking his diary and back to Ross. The Magna Doodle now reads, “get out.” Spooky….
8. The one with the wrong arm – season 5, episode 23
Joey tells Chandler about his identical hand twin and plans to get rich. Joey points accusingly at Chandler with his left arm when he sees Chandler’s reaction. In the next shot, he tells with his right arm.
9. The one with the foam finger – season 1, episode 4
Ross can be seen wearing a foam finger at the hockey game, which later disappears. Although he may have just put it down, in fairness.
10. The one with the Rachel stand-in – season 9, episode 15
Finally, Rachel is wearing a paisley top when she tells Joey that his agent called to say he got the audition for the Broadway play. In the next shot, Jennifer Aniston’s stand-in stands beside Joey wearing a different top.
