Friends has become one of the most celebrated sitcoms of all time, with the relatable troubles of six New York friends as they go through life giving us some of the funniest moments on TV.
But it was not always plain sailing when cameras first revealed the characters of Joey Tribbiani (Matt Le Blanc), Rachel Green (Jennifer Anniston), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Monica Geller (Courtney Cox), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer) and Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) to the world.
A glaring gaffe, first spotted by eagle-eyed viewer Aine Malone, from the pilot episode has resurfaced on its 26th anniversary.
In The One Where Monica Gets A Roommate, Phoebe is talking to Rachel in the kitchen of the iconic apartment about how she’s just pulled out four eyelashes.
But just a couple of seconds later, she is also seen sitting behind Fun Bobby sipping a cup of coffee on the sofa – appearing to listen to her own conversation.
Of course, Lisa famously did play herself as Phoebe’s twin sister Ursula on the show but it is clear in the first episode she is still meant to be Phoebe.
Fans have flocked to Twitter today to celebrate the 26th anniversary of the beloved show.
“26 years ago today, we found our best friends in Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross,” one wrote.
“Happy 26th anniversary to the most rewatched sitcom. It's not a show, it's an emotion.”
Another commented: “26 years ago, the first episode of Friends aired and the rest is history.”
With 236 episodes and 10 seasons, it is perhaps no surprise that the Phoebe gaffe is the only continuity error that fans have spotted in the past.
