The One With Rachel's Inadvertent Kiss - S5-E17

The One Where Chandler Takes a Bath - S8-E13

Continuity mistake: When Chandler takes hold of the boat he grabs the middle of it, the camera changes angle and he is now holding it at the end of the boat.

Starchild

The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: When Janine goes into the hallway to apologize to Monica about her behavior at dinner, she runs into Monica who says, "What did I tell you about the hall?" As she says this, she is pointing her right forefinger at Janine and her right shoulder is leaned in closer to her. When Janine says "I was just coming over here to apologize for my behavior," the camera cuts to Monica, who is now standing with her left shoulder leaning in toward her. The camera cuts back to Janine as she says "I'd really like it if we could be friends" and then back to Monica for her next line, where she again has switched to her right shoulder leaning toward Janine.

Leah Schaeffer

Season 6 generally

Factual error: This mistake is from series 6 onwards, with Ross' new apartment: There is an impossibility with Ross' kitchen, but not all of the time. It depends on the layout of the hallway outside his apartment. If the hallway continues along for a bit before going left or right, then the kitchen should stick out. However, when the hallway is a dead end, the kitchen fits ok.

The One With The Ride-Along - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the episode, Rachel is back in Ross' apartment, trying to mend the ornament she broke when she was in there earlier. Ross comes in unexpectedly and she tosses the broken pieces into the lightshade, leaving the glue on the side table. In subsequent shots, the glue goes from lying on its side, to standing up, a number of times.

The One Where Ross Dates a Student - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Joey are at Joey's apartment throwing wet paper towels at the entertainment unit, Phoebe comes in to ask Rachel to switch back to Monica's apartment. During the scene, Phoebe is standing in front of the entertainment unit, and the wet paper towels' number and positions change between shots.

The One With The Metaphorical Tunnel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Ross shows G.I. Joe to Ben, the Barbie's legs are pointing towards the refrigerator. In the next shot, they are suddenly pointing the opposite way.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Continuity mistake: When Chandler and Monica are talking about Chandler's shark obsession, his arms keep changing with each shot. When the shot is from behind (facing Monica) they are on the couch, and when the shot is in front (facing Chandler), his arms are folded in front of him.

The One With Phoebe's Uterus - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: When Monica is drawing the seven erotic zones, she says there are seven and Rachel says, "Let me see that!" Rachel has one leg on the couch and then in a flash she has them both on the table.

Pam-I-am

The One With The Mugging - S9-E15

Continuity mistake: When Chandler, Rachel and Monica are discussing the sneakers, Rachel is holding a water bottle. In a close up shot it has the cap on it, in the next far shot it is on the table without a cap.

Pam-I-am

The One With Joey's Award - S7-E18

Continuity mistake: When Rachel walks in on Joey with the syrup bottle, he sets it down. In the next shot, he is holding it again.

Pam-I-am

The One With the Baby on the Bus - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is introducing the "professional musician" in Central Perk, just as she walks off a bald black man in a red shirt walks past the window. Then the woman sits on her stool and the man walks past again.

David Mercier

The Last One (1) - S10-E19

Revealing mistake: When the first baby is born, Monica and Chandler are asked by the doctor if they would like to cut the umbilical cord. However, just before this line is delivered, the baby is moved and its navel is visible.

The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: In the very first scene when Janine and Joey are kissing at the table in Central Perk, the blue cup by Joey's arm moves forward a few inches without him touching it.

Pam-I-am

The One In Vegas, Part 1 - S5-E23

Continuity mistake: Chandler comes down to find Monica and sees that she's playing some game and having fun. He makes a sad and dejected face. The scene cuts back to Monica, and then to the exact same shot again of Chandler making the sad and dejected face.

The One With The 'Cuffs - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Joey's encounter with the encyclopedia salesman is riddled with errors. First, when the salesman is talking about Van Gogh and saying "He painted that," he points to a page that is all text; later, Joey is reading about vomit, and it is at a pont much further on in the book than when the salesman read about vulcanized rubber (which it shouldn't be, given the encyclopedia is alphabetized); finally, when Joey buys the "V" volume, as he opens it he has a $50 bill in his hand, and when the shot changes to show the salesman he is somehow folding and pocketing it without having taken it from Joey.

The One With The Birthing Video - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: In the one where Chandler watches the video of a woman giving birth, he takes a video out of the VCR and places it on the table (he's staring at the box and when Monica moves it we hear that a tape's inside). When Monica enters the room, she asks him what he is so upset about and he presses play on the remote control. The tape immediately starts playing, despite no-one moving to put it in the player.

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Factual error: When the gang all see the beach house for the first time, it's covered in a layer of sand, which is supposedly left over from a recent flood. Well, if there really had been a flood, there would have been mold on the walls and debris or junk from the outside, and the sand wouldn't have been nice and clean and dry; it would have been moldy. And there would've been a pattern, likely on the walls, of where the water rose up to and where it receded. Not only that, but how did it get in? All of the doors and windows are intact.

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

Continuity mistake: When Ross asks Chandler "you took his underwear?", the angle changes halfway through the line. Chandler's hands go from in front of him to being in his pockets.

Jon Sandys

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Other mistake: In the episode with Ross's wedding to Emily, Joey is talking on a cell phone with Phoebe as he walks down the aisle. Joey holds the phone out to Ross saying 'it's Phoebe', and one can clearly see that the phone's screen is completely blank. The phone isn't even turned on.
