Friends Swapped Rachel in an Episode and No-One Noticed

A blogger at Recently Heard spotted a hilarious error in an old episodeof Friends, thanks to Netflix.  In an episode titled “The One With the Mugging,” Jordan D’Amico  spotted an unfamiliar face where a very familiar one should have been.

During the beginning of the episode, Rachel Green (aka Jennifer Aniston) and Joey Tribbiani (aka Matt LeBlanc) go visit Monica Geller (played by Courteney Cox) in her kitchen to talk about Joey’s exciting new audition. It was during that scene when D’Amico spotted something surprising. Instead of cutting back from Monica at her table to Joey and Rachel standing together, there was someone else there.


That woman on the left pictured next to Joey in the scene is most certainly not the lovely Jennifer Aniston. (Although I’m sure that, whoever she is, she is also very lovely!) Again, you’ll find this in season nine, episode 15, right around the 3:20 mark (just after Monica gives her line about the possibility of the monkey being at the audition.)
