Continuity mistake: In the final scene Rachel passes out copies of her draft for her book. She gives out all her copies and asks for their opinion. However, near the end of the scene after waving her arms around empty handed a copy of her script magically appears in her hands.
Continuity mistake: Rachel and Phoebe are in the Central Perk, talking about leaving the group, and a jacket and a handbag are hanging on the arm of the chair behind Rachel, slightly to her left. Between shots it changes from just the jacket, then just the handbag and so on. This continues throughout the scene when Ross comes in and Phoebe leaves. As she gets up you see both again, however Rachel does not move enough to just show one and hide the other.
Continuity mistake: Ross and Joey are discussing Joey writing his own moviel; Ross sits down to begin writing, and Joey places a beer on the table next to him. The large part of the label is facing to the side, but it then switches to facing the front without being touched.
Continuity mistake: When Joey is interviewing the potential roommate and Chandler comes in, Joey's stance changes a few times. His grip on the application form changes, and when he points to the bathroom his arm is in a slightly, but noticeably, different place in the next shot.
Continuity mistake: When Stephanie is singing "Angel in the Morning", there is a person in overalls sitting behind the green pole. The shot changes to Phoebe outside and you can still see the person; it changes back to Stephanie and the person is now sitting on the next table.
Continuity mistake: During the scene where Phoebe is telling Rachel that Paolo made a pass at her, Rachel unrolls a long length of kitchen roll. During the scene there is a shot over her shoulder where we see that the kitchen roll is as normal and in the next shot we see it unrolled again.
Continuity mistake: Just after Chandler explains the situation to Janice, she goes off crying, and Ross takes a photo. The flash is much brighter than it should be - the screen's whited out to disguise a jump cut - after the flash Chandler's noticeably further back than he was before.
