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. (00:04:30)

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Other mistake: When Joey comes out the bathroom in the girls' apartment with a turkey stuck on his head, the bathroom floor has the black and white tiles. But that floor wasn't there until Joey put it there in Series 3, The One With Frank Jr. So in the flashback the bathroom floor should be white tiles. (00:04:45)

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. (00:06:15)

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Visible crew/equipment: Monica is explaining her Thanksgiving to Chandler; when she drops the knife there is a shot looking up from the floor. A crew member's shadow is visible on the ceiling. (00:07:10)

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where they take Chandler to the hospital, Monica hands the bag of ice containing Chandler's toe to the doctor. The doctor is wearing gloves in one shot then no gloves in the next. This goes back and forth three or four times. (00:07:45)

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Visible crew/equipment: Just as Monica finishes her story and Chandler is shown, the reflection of the stage lights is visible in the TV. (00:18:20)

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Monica puts the turkey on her head, she puts a hat on it. In the next shot the hat is not at an angle and must be held in place. (00:19:40)

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. (00:21:10)

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. (00:05:40)

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. A red cushion also moves. (00:09:10)

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: In the second scene with Phoebe and Rachel in the night class, when the camera looks over Rachel's shoulder, she has "Jane Eyre" in her hand face up, but when the angle switches to front view, she has nearly placed the book on the desk. (00:13:20)

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: When Ross is in Central Perk talking about his day at work and how he is not going to work for a while because of his rage, watch his cotton candy. It changes in sizes and shape a lot, from big and uncircular to small and circular. (00:14:50)

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Revealing mistake: Joey's bucket of chicken is, rather obviously, a KFC bucket with "Finger Lickin' Chicken" stuck over the original KFC lettering - you can even see the picture of Col. Sanders. (00:17:10)

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: After Joey makes up the story about how he slept with Monica once in London, in the shots facing Phoebe, Rachel, and Ross the door to Monica's apartment goes back and forth being either wide open or closed, depending on the angle of the shot.

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: During the literature class, when they're discussing Wuthering Heights all the writing on the blackboard changes, and the word "conflict" is first spelled correctly, but then it's spelled without the letter L.

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

Visible crew/equipment: At the start as Joey comes out, watch the tv and you will see a line of stage lights. (00:00:05)

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: Ross and Joey are discussing Joey writing his own moviel; Ross sits down to begin writing, and Joey places a beer on the table next to him. The large part of the label is facing to the side, but it then switches to facing the front without being touched. (00:06:20)

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Monica are arguing about her meddling, Monica raises her hand to her face and you see a sparkly engagement ring on her finger. Her character wasn't engaged but Courteney Cox was at the time. (00:07:05)

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: Joey and Chandler are playing 'Fireball'; Joey puts his hand through the wall next to the fridge, then in the next scene the hole is gone with no trace. (00:08:50)

Scrappy

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: Rachel goes into Danny's apartment and we see that his door opens up right into his living room. However, in "The One with the Yeti", we see Danny's apartment from outside the door and there is a wall directly behind him. (00:11:00)
