The One In Barbados, part 1 - S9-E23

Revealing mistake: On a number of occasions in this and the next episode, the beach and the water can be seen in the background, through hotel windows. White foam is visible in a number of places, like the crests of waves, but not only do they not move while the camera is on them, they are always in the same place in subsequent shots, revealing that this is a painted backdrop.

The One Where Rachel Finds Out - S1-E24

Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel is on the balcony with her date, after she kisses Ross and says, "Wow!", the shot changes back to her date.

Continuity mistake: When Frank Jr. holds a white sheet around himself, while talking to Phoebe about how she really is a masseuse, etc., the gathered sheet in his hand keeps changing repeatedly throughout the scene.

The One With The Cooking Class - S8-E21

Revealing mistake: When Ross confronts Rachel saying are you sure you don't want more, she gets up saying she has to pee - as she stands up, she turns her back to the camera, and you can she the buckle for her mum-tum on her back.

The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part 1 - S7-E23

Visible crew/equipment: At the very start after Monica says, "We're gonna have lunch at Mom's" when the camera switches to a wider shot look above Joey's head. You can see the boom mic track him across the stage.

The One With The Stripper - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: When the stripper has just entered the apartment you can see her putting down her right arm twice, withouth enough time inbetween to put it back up.

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Chandler is talking to Janice at one point his hands go from pointing straight ahead to his pockets.

The One With The Metaphorical Tunnel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: After Chandler chases Janice down the street and Rachel gives him a tub of ice cream, the tub is green with a white label. After Rachel asks him how he left it with Janice, it changes to purple with a label, then purple with no label, then back to the original after he is told to act aloof.

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: In the flashback where Joey sticks the turkey on his head, the subtitle says Thanksgiving 1992. However, the show started in 1994 and Joey didn't move in until the previous fall, so the earliest Thanksgiving that he was there would have been 1993.

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey is standing with candelight over Ross' neck, the candle is full length, but in the next shot it's only half length.

The One with the Butt - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: In the scene just before Joey goes into the shower, when he is thanking the director for the opportunity, the camera shot goes back and forth between Joey and the director several times. During this series of shots, the part in Joey's hair switches sides nearly every time. It appears that the entire shot is reversed - in the closeup, the shower curtain is on his left and the shadow to his right is sharply focused. In the lower (long) shot, the curtain is to his right, and the shadow on his left is more focused.
