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

Continuity mistake: When Joey is counting the floors of Ross' building (the first time) to find out where Hot Girl lives, he is wearing a black top with a zip. When he rushes over to Ross' building he walks down the hall and knocks on what he believes to be Hot Girl's door. In these shots he is wearing a dark purple button up shirt. As soon as Ross answers the door, Joey is wearing the black top with a zip again.

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 Joey's Bag - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is in the coffee house talking to her father and pretending to be the executor of her grandmother's will, after she says "lipstick and a daughter, big day for you" she folds her papers in half, but in the next shot they are unfolded and she then folds them again.

The One After Ross Says Rachel - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: Monica and Chandler are piling their dinner plates with food while arranging to meet for a second quickie.

The One In Vegas, Part 2 - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is saying to Ross that the pen won't come off, a wheel behind Rachel is spinning or stopped dead in different shots. This includes instant cuts between the 2 angles.

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 Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey has just brought home his date, he jiggles the door handle, which makes Monica and Chandler run off into Chandler's room. Chandler kicks a circle cushion off the mat, but when the camera cuts back, it's on the mat again, and then off the mat again when Rachel walks in.

The One With The Ball - S5-E21

Audio problem: When Rachel is trying to sell the cat and someone looks the hiss is a clear overdub.

The One With Joey's Bag - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: There is a shot of Phoebe in Central Perk about to talk to Frank (from outside, looking in). From this shot there are several people outside Central Perk. The camera does an instant cut to behind Phoebe, (inside, looking outside) and the people have vanished.

The One After Ross Says Rachel - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: When Phoebe phones Emily's mother to say she is Ross' pediatrician (or something like that) look out the window behind Phoebe. The buildings are moving slowly from side to side.

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Monica puts the sunglasses and hat on the turkey, she puts the glasses on where the arms are over the wings of the turkey. But in next shot the arms of the glasses are completely under the wings.

The One With The Ball - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Monica says "Let's go team Monica!" Joey is holding the ball; when the camera angle changes Chandler has the ball and throws it behind him for someone else to catch.

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Revealing mistake: When Joey has the turkey on his head, and Chandler is by the door, look at the wall to Chandler's right. It's a "wild wall" - i.e., a movable wall put there to extend the set outward an additional few feet, since the camera normally doesn't see that far forward. The wall angles oddly away from the room, and you can see how the line and pattern of the hallway floor continues into the room.

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

Revealing mistake: When Ross is doing his "Watching TV" bit, there is a brief shot of the blank screen that he is sitting on the sofa pretending to watch. In the screen's reflection, it is clear that the sofa is empty.

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: Phoebe is complaining about people disrespecting her charity bucket, and hands the bucket to Monica as she does so. In the first two shots Monica holds the bucket by its edge, but when the camera goes back to her for a third time, she is holding the bucket by its handle.

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Audio problem: At the very end when Ross hits Rachel's stomach twice the sound doesn't match his actions.

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: In Central Perk, when Phoebe writes a note for Ross to put on his sandwich so no one eats it, she mentions that she stabbed a cop, and has a green mug in her hand. It cuts to Monica then back to Phoebe and the mug is out of her hand and she's yelling, "He stabbed me first." When it cuts back to the wide shot the mug is back in Phoebe's hand.

The One With The Yeti - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: Ross is in his apartment, and he is saying he will miss it. Throughout the scene, the phone appears and disappears in the charger cradle.

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe says she is going to "pack her ass off" she walks toward the coffee house door, and they cut to another scene quickly and then back to the door and Phoebe has disappeared. She did not have time to make it to the door and out.
