This Eagle-Eyed 'Friends' Fan Has WAY Too Much Time on His Hands

This episode shall now be known as "The One With the Fake Rachel Green."

All 10 season of Friends have been on Netflix for about a year now, which means we've all had time to binge-watch and enjoy the beloved comedy all over again. Some fans, though, seem to have been re-watching more closely than others. Very very very closely.

During a recent Friends binge-athon, Jordan D'Amico over at RecentlyHeard.com noticed a tough-to-spot error. Remember "The One With the Mugging," the 15th episode of Season 9? It's the episode where Ross realizes that Phoebe mugged him years ago and hilarity ensues. It also includes a scene where Rachel and Joey stop by Monica's apartment to chat. See, here they are looking perfectly like themselves:

Then Joey walks further into the apartment to sit down with Monica at the table, at which point Rachel is mostly out of frame. Or, at least, the woman who is supposed to be Rachel is mostly out of frame. But if you look closely, there's actually a totally different woman wearing a TOTALLY DIFFERENT SHIRT in the scene.

Like, the shirt's not even close.

The girl is question is likely a stand-in or even a crew member that was asked to hop in while Aniston was otherwise occupied. Who knows what she was doing and why they had to keep shooting the scene around her. I like to imagine that Jen had to go talk to then-hubby Brad Pitt on the phone and that the two whispered sweet nothings into each other's ears. Sigh, the early aughts were a golden time.

Either way, this episode shall now be known as "The One With the Fake Rachel Green."
