The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: In the Central Perk scene where Rachel is telling Ross she loves him, Ross is sitting at the small round table. The blue cup and the white cup with the lid move positions throughout the scene.

Pam-I-am

The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: The red eraser knob on the magnadoodle changes from one side to the other, when Janine is going out to tell Monica she is sorry.

Pam-I-am

The One With The Truth About London - S7-E16

Other mistake: Right at the very end, when Joey is in the fat-suit and picks up a piece of food and says "How you doin'?" he doesn't put it in his mouth, he just lifts it to his lips, stops, and tries to stay still. If this had been a freeze on the part of the director then fair enough, but it isn't as he and particularly Monica are still moving. It just looks rather corny and amateur, as though they are waiting for the "cut" to be called.

The One Where They All Turn Thirty - S7-E14

Continuity mistake: As Monica is giving her speech while drunk, at one point her hands go from her sides to gripping each other between shots.

The One Where Chandler Gets Caught - S10-E10

Continuity mistake: Ross claims he looks into Monica and Chandler's and watches them eating dinner and watching TV. His apartment is a floor lower down than theirs and with the balcony wall, the sofa and tables distance from the window and the fact the bottom of the window is higher than the floor, there is no way Ross would be able to see that far in. We have seen in the past that he can basically only see who is at the window.

The One With Phoebe's Ex-Partner - S3-E14

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Chandler says "I'm the smallest person in the world", and Joey comes out of his room, check the top left of the screen - you can see a boom mic track Matt LeBlanc across the set, and the bottom of some stage lights in the middle.

The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part 2 - S7-E24

Revealing mistake: At the point in the ceremony where Joey forgets the rings, the camera pans out and you see Chandler step sidewards to get the ring from Ross, and Monica step sidewards to get the ring from Rachel and Phoebe. As Monica moves, her dress slides across and one of her feet is revealed; it has what looks like a brown boot or heavy brown shoe on it.

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Chandler are about to kiss there is a bottle of wine and two glasses on the counter. It then cuts to a view of Phoebe with no bottle or glasses on the counter, just a phone, and then later in the same scene it cuts back to Phoebe again and there are two glasses and a bottle of wine again.

The One Where Joey Dates Rachel - S8-E12

Continuity mistake: When Monica returns from work to find that Chandler has been playing on Ms Pac Man all day, he lifts his hand and it is in a claw shape, which Monica comments about. However, when he and Monica are talking you can see the same hand and it's fine. He points to the screen of the game with it, and is also seen putting it into his pocket. When Phoebe enters later and asks why Chandler has suddenly gotten so good at the game, he shows her the same hand...the claw is back

The One With The Cooking Class - S8-E21

Continuity mistake: The night before they go to the baby furniture store, Ross and Rachel are in the kitchen talking. Just before they leave the kitchen watch Rachel's robe: in one shot the 'lapels' are neatly one over the other, and in the next shot one lapel has moved lower and looks halfway folded over as if she hastily pulled the robe together.

The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: At the very start of the episode, when Joey's showing Chandler National Geographic, Chandler has his left hand up by his face in one shot, then when the angle changes they're both clasped in his lap.

The One With The Late Thanksgiving - S10-E8

Continuity mistake: The food/sauce stain Joey gets on his shirt (after running into the cart) changes between shots.

The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Phoebe are eating with the diplomat and his translator, watch the translator's chocolate cake. It either rotates, has some taken out of it, or is a different piece. Whichever way, the cake changes size, shape or position without him ever touching it.

The One With Rachel's Crush - S4-E13

Audio problem: In the scene where Rachel walks into the guy's new apartment and they start talking about Joshua, it cuts to a shot of her in profile as she says "It's just so frustrating". Her mouth doesn't move as she says the words.

The One Where They All Turn Thirty - S7-E14

Continuity mistake: When Monica is at the party and she is drunk, there is one point when she is sitting down on a chair with Chandler on her right. Chandler is holding her left hand (which has a snack in it), but when it cuts to a front view of Monica, suddenly both her hands are on her lap.

The One With Joey's New Brain - S7-E15

Continuity mistake: When Joey is talking to the woman whose brain he receives, as the shot changes she is holding a glass, then a cigarette then a glass again, with no time to change objects, let alone anywhere to put the other.

The One With The Ring - S6-E23

Continuity mistake: Paul finally opens up, and cries like a baby to Rachel. While talking to her at the Breakfast Bar (when Rachel is trying to distract him with sex), he's wearing a white linen shirt that constantly changes between tear-stained and wrinkled to ironed and clean.

The One With Rachel's Other Sister - S9-E8

Continuity mistake: When Amy and Rachel are arguing in Monica and Chandler's apartment, the door behind Amy leading to the guest room changes from open to closed in almost every shot.

The One With Rachel's New Dress - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: In the one with Rachel's new dress, she's in her underwear on the sofa when Joshua comes in. In wide shots focusing on Joshua she's quite laid back, but in close shots of her she's sitting more upright. Worse than that, her legs are crossed, but uncross in the shot of his parents coming in, only to re-cross in the next shot when she gasps.

The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Joey refuses to give Chandler the chair, Phoebe gets hummus on her dress, but in some scenes the stain is much smaller than others.
