Continuity mistake: When Monica is in Richard's apartment she gets all worked up, so Richard gives her a hug to calm her down. She goes into the hug with her arms curled up in front of her face, but when the camera angle changes, they are at Richard's back.
Continuity mistake: In the episode with Chandler in a box, when Rachel is showing Ross all the things she had kept from their relationship in a shoe box, her hair is tucked behind her ear in most shots, but when she says "I keep the gifts that matter", it's all loose, then goes back to how it was in the following shot. Also in the shot before that line she's pointing the fossil at Ross, but when it cuts to a front view she's pointing it upwards.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Rachel believes Joey has proposed to her at the hospital after having Emma. Ross is talking to Rachel about her saying yes to Joey's proposal. The nurse brings Emma in to breast feed. When the nurse leaves, she closes the door. However, when they shoot back to Joey a couple of times before he leaves the room, the door is open.
Continuity mistake: In the one with Rachel's babyshower, Monica needs to ring Rachel's mom to invite her. She says that she has her number in her phone book and walks over to the phone - we see her start to look at it, but when the angle changes she's got the phone and is dialling.
Continuity mistake: Ross is over at Chandler and Joey's looking through the peep hole for hours waiting for Rachel to return. When she does and Ross sees her go inside with Mark, Ross tries to open the door to go see her, and Chandler jumps on his back to stop him. As Chandler says "I...am not going to let you do this", Ross grabs the door handle. Then the angle changes, and as Chandler says "You...are surprisingly strong," Ross is further from the handle and grabs it again.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Chandler sits on Joey in an attempt to regain possession of his seat, the shirt sleeve on his left arm becomes unrolled and slides down. When he stands up, the camera cuts to face Ross while he is giving out directions, leaving Chandler's back to the audience. Chandler's sleeve is now rolled back up. The sleeve remains rolled for the rest of the sequence.
Revealing mistake: Whenever Monica's apartment is shot from the point of view of the balcony looking in, fake walls have to be put up across the room to cover the open space (since there is no wall there usually). When the friends are looking out the window at Ugly Naked Guy and his girlfriend in this episode, you can see that the rear wall does not extend nearly far enough - there is a large black space behind Monica.
Continuity mistake: When they are talking about sperm donation, Joey is eating a cracker with jam on it. Between shots it instantly rotates in his hand. You can tell because the jam goes from being on the top to the bottom side, and because of the way he is holding it you can see there is only jam on one side.
Continuity mistake: When Chandler's boss is slapping all the guys on the butt, on the side of the table closest to the camera there is a tablet with a pen on it. When the guy comes back in to get his briefcase, the pen is no longer there.
Continuity mistake: Chandler walks into his apartment to find Rachel eating cheesecake without him. As the door is shutting, the pen on the Magnadoodle is hanging loose; it can be heard hitting the door when Chandler is closing it. The next shot shows Rachel stop eating, and when we next see Chandler, the door is closed and the pen is in its holder.
Visible crew/equipment: In the opening shot of Phoebe and Chandler in the "nine millionth" jewelry store looking for a ring, at the top of the screen we can see the tip of the boom mic moving in the wideshot. Then just as Chandler looks into the display case and says, "Ugly ring. Ugly ring. Ugly ring," the boom microphone can be seen moving around in the mirror's reflection behind him.
Visible crew/equipment: After Ross and Rachel cover the table with the sheet, when Phoebe walks in Rachel says they can turn out the lights and watch the movie, and in the next shot we can see the end of the set wall, the soundstage and a crewmember's leg.
Visible crew/equipment: After Ross and Monica blurt out each other's secrets to their parents, when Jack says, "And we kind of figured about the porch swing," in his closeup we can see the end of the set wall, with the soundstage behind it and many tape marks on the floor.
Visible crew/equipment: After Chandler starts removing Monica's braids from the shower curtain rings, when it cuts to Joey and Rachel walking into their apartment, we can see the hole in the wall at the right side of the screen. And it's seen again when Ross walks in on Rachel and Joey kissing.
Continuity mistake: It's obviously December, with the set decorations and Rachel's reference to sitting on multiple Santas' laps because she is randy from her pregnancy hormones. The characters establish that it's Rachel's fourth month of pregnancy...but she became pregnant about six weeks before Monica and Chandler's May 15 wedding. Her fourth month would have been in July, not December.
