Continuity mistake: After Rachel spins the bottle and it points to Joshua, when she crawls toward him on her hands and knees the bottle is in front of her knees in the shots facing her, but in the shot facing Joshua the bottle is at her side, near her foot.
Continuity mistake: After Chandler gets back from the strip club, when he throws his jacket and scarf they both land on the rug between the recliner and coffee table, but when Chandler sits in his recliner the jacket is gone and the scarf is lying on the floor on the opposite side of the table.
Continuity mistake: At the end, when Monica asks about the garbage bags the apartment's front door is closed, but when Rachel opens the drawer and freaks out about what's inside, the front door is wide open (for the camera) as she kicks the drawer shut, and then the door is closed again. (Widescreen).
Continuity mistake: Before Monica stomps on Paul's watch, the chair closest to the fridge does not have fabric backing, then when Ross eats the Oreo and walks toward his jacket the chair closest to the fridge is now fabric backed and his jacket hangs from a chair with no fabric, plus there are only four chairs around the table. However, when Ross picks up his jacket this chair is now fabric backed, the chair closest to the fridge doesn't have a fabric back yet again, and there are now five chairs around the table.
Continuity mistake: When Joanna stops Rachel from leaving work Rachel's holding her handbag and jacket, and there's still one bag hanging on the wall hook, but when Joanna mentions the "drinking binge" there are two bags hanging from the hook, then it's back to just one bag, yet when Joanna calls Sophie there's nothing on the hook and Rachel has both bags.
Continuity mistake: When Ross and Cheryl are standing in the hall outside Cheryl's apartment, she's holding her keys in her right hand when she asks Ross if he'd like to come in, but after Ross makes the joke about Homo erectus, Cheryl opens her hand and the keys have vanished from her hand.
Other mistake: When Chandler and Monica are sitting at the table after playing Gin, Chandler's bottle of Yoo-hoo is on the table, but the label reads "Yooh" because the brand name has been partially covered - the blue letters "oo" are yellow to match the background.
Continuity mistake: When helmet-wearing Vicar Joey taunts Rachel one too many times she turns the tables on him, so when Joey backs away from Rachel he gets pushed up against the front door, and although he can't move, in the shot facing Joey he's at the left side of the door, but in the side shots he's at the right side of the door.
Continuity mistake: After Chandler has written the message on the Magna Doodle, the sliding eraser moves from the right to left side just as he leaves with Monica, and when Joey and Chandler are playing foosball, the barely legible "Joey" is now neatly written on the Magna Doodle, and its sliding eraser is again back to the right side.
Continuity mistake: While Monica and Chandler confront Janine in Joey's apartment, we can see the drawing of the fire breathing dragon and the ape on the Empire State building on the Magna Doodle, then when Joey tells Chandler and Monica to leave because he needs to talk to Janine, the drawing differs - note the dragon's scales, its position, the building, etc.
Continuity mistake: When Ross tells Chandler and Rachel that he's running out to buy name tags for his party, in the next shot the water bottle beside Rachel does not have its cap on, but it cuts to Rachel's closeup and the cap is on. Other differences can be seen as well, such as Rachel's hair and an extra utensil.
Continuity mistake: After Ross announces his tenure, when Rachel starts crying and tells him that she got fired and didn't get the other job, her right hand is up by her face, but in the next shot her right hand is holding the glass of champagne and it's her left hand up by her face.
