The One With The Proposal, part 1 - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Richard is being seated next to Chandler and Monica, the amount of champagne in Chandler's glass changes.

The One With The Prom Video - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: The prom video has just ended and the TV screen goes blank. Monica had been sitting next to Rachel, but in the reflection of the TV screen you can see her beginning to stand up. We cut back to a 'real' view, and she's sitting down; then she stands up again.

The One With The Baby Shower - S8-E20

Visible crew/equipment: Monica chases after Rachel's Mom to apologise and she falls over and you can clearly see the safety mat move when Monica falls on to it - it's blue and just down the first step.

The One With Frank, Jr. - S3-E5

Other mistake: Chandler tries to open the door that leads to his room, but Joey has sawed the door in half so only the upper half opens, and Chandler then falls over the bottom half. He has to hit it with some force to fall over it, but it doesn't budge an inch.

The One With The Prom Video - S2-E14

Visible crew/equipment: During the prom video, Monica, Rachel, and Monica's date Roy are standing in the living room. When Roy leaves the room saying, "I'm gonna kick Chip's ass," the camera follows him out, but as it's turning the boom mic operator is visible. He's kneeling on the floor sliding the mic toward the girls.

The One With The Flashback - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Phoebe are in the bar and get on the pool table to start kissing, Ross moves the pool balls out of the way, but two remain. As Phoebe lies down, the 9 ball is next to her left shoulder. The shot cuts closer and it is the 13 ball, then cuts back and it's the 9 ball again.

The One with the Ick Factor - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: When Monica takes off her belt and throws it onto the couch, it lands on Rachel's arm. Throughout the scene, between shots of Rachel and Monica talking, the belt constantly disappears, reappears and changes position without Rachel ever touching it.

The One With The Engagement Picture - S7-E5

Revealing mistake: In the shot of the paper with the picture of Monica and Joey, the anouncement written there starts out fine, but near the end the middle part is just repeated again.

The One With The Halloween Party - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is talking to Ursula's fiance Eric, he is wiping sweat off his face with a napkin. He puts the napkin to his eye and then in the next shot it changes to the other eye without him having enough time to change it. This happens again when at one point he's wiping his eye and then suddenly his forehead.

Season 3 generally

Continuity mistake: The number on Pheobe's cab changes throughout series 2 and 3. 7E85 and 2X85 respectively.

The One Where the Monkey Gets Away - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: After Marcel has escaped from the basement, he is seen eating a banana as a pair of arms reach out to grab him. These arms are supposed to belong to Mr Heckles, their weird neighbour, however the arms clearly belong to a young, large and hair free woman.

The One With The Mugging - S9-E15

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Ross are 'mugged' it is dark and in the evening. However, when Ross tells Monica what had 'just' happens you can see that it is the middle of the day

The One With The Chicken Pox - S2-E23

Factual error: The symptoms (spots, fever, etc) of chicken pox only develop 2 - 3 weeks after exposure to the virus. Therefore, when Ross knew that Ben had chicken pox, Phoebe shouldn't have developed the condition until at least two weeks later, and Ryan certainly shouldn't have developed the disease until the end of his stay (as Phoebe was his only contact with the virus).

The One With The Ball - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: In the interrogation room, the blinds behind Phoebe keep going from open to closed in different shots.

The One With The Late Thanksgiving - S10-E8

Plot hole: It's not possible for Rachel to have an old key that works. In "The One Where Rachel Tells" after Treeger knocks down the door, he states that the door will need a new lock.

The One Where They All Turn Thirty - S7-E14

Plot hole: Rachel is said to be the youngest in the group as they reminisce about their 30th birthdays, however this episode reveals that almost all of the characters ages have been inconsistent throughout the series. In Season 1, Joey is said to be 25. In Season 2, he says he is 28. In S7 E1, he says he is 31. In Season 1, Monica is said to be 26. In Season 7, she should therefore be at least 32. Rachel graduated high school with Monica, so she should also be about 32 in S7, not just turning 30. She would have been 26 in S1. But, in Season 4, she refers to herself as a "28-year-old cheerleader". Based on Season 1, Joey should actually be the youngest member of the group, not Rachel.

The One with the Thumb - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When we first see Chandler in his office, his sleeve is rolled below his elbow. In the next shot, it is above his elbow.

The One With The Fertility Test - S9-E21

Visible crew/equipment: When Monica and Chandler are on the couch in the fertility clinic after Monica says "Nobody's gonna wanna watch that" the camera switches to a wider shot. When it does this the boom mic swiftly moves out of view.

The One Where Chandler Crosses The Line - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe tells Ross that she wants to hear his "sound", she has her guitar in her lap. The shot changes, she says "Play that funky music white boy," and her guitar is missing. In the next shot, Ross runs out and her guitar is back on her lap again.
