Diehard 'Friends’ Fans, Did You Pick Up On This Mistake In The Pilot Episode? Warner Bros. Television

If you're reading this, chances are you've watched every episode of 'Friends' so many times that you could watch blindfolded and have an accurate play by play acting out in your head... but, did you notice this continuity mistake in the pilot episode? 

Whilst re-watching for most likely the millionth time, a mega-fan has spotted a mistake in the debut episode of Friends, which could only be explained by either a) witchcraft or b) an accidental look-over due to the stress of launching a pilot episode for a soon-to-be universal sensation.

Did you spot it? It's pretty easy to miss on first glance. 

As you can see in the first shot, Phoebe is in the kitchen where she's chatting about her eyelashes falling out (classic). Although, in the second shot where it shows Monica's date, Phoebs is also in the background sipping on a cup of tea. 

Witchcraft? Continuity hiccup? Regardless, of the reasoning, it clearly didn't affect the show gaining instant popularity.
