ah yea you are right about this. Its the one that Janice wants to know who almost hooked up with whom. When Phoebe and Ross almost hooks up, and Chandler and Rachel had that thing in the bar (before it was the coffee shop). I agree the timing is a little off on this. However I can't remember if in the pilot episode Ross says Carol had just moved out or the divorce was final? Because if he was just saying that the divorce was final then that could be right because divorces take a long time to be finalized. But I'm pretty sure you are right that this is a slip-up...because I dont think they would be together for a year after he figured it out!!

This is a bit of an iffy one... it is true that in the flashback to a year before the pilot in season three, Ross finds out that Carol is a lesbian. However, what Monica says about Ross in the pilot is that "Carol just moved her stuff out", which could mean that there was an awkward bridging period of a year in which Carol and Ross still lived in the same house/apartment, but (presumably) in separate beds, which would be weird, but not impossible. However (again), in the next episode, Carol is pregnant with Ben, and though it's not certain how far along she is, it is obvious that she and Ross must have slept together since a year ago. BUT! In a later episode, this is addressed: Ross says that he and Carol had a lot of good times together before she came out of the closet and "once after". So this, at least, explains how Ben was conceived, though it still doesn't explain what happened with Carol after she came out (unless she moved out right away and then, for whatever reason, decided to try things again with Ross and move back IN, only to move out again just before the Pilot).

i thought the only other episode that ross finds out carol is a lesbian is the "what if" episode. during that episode rachel is actually married. and ross tries to spice up their marrige before finding out she was a lesbian. i could be wrong though. anyone else remember the "flashback" episode this person is talking about??
