The One With Joey's Bag - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: Before Monica starts giving Chandler his massage, she sets the timer and places it near the foot of the bed which we see in Chandler's closeup, but in the next shot when she says, "Say goodbye to sore muscles," oblivious to Chandler's pain, the timer is lying by the pillows behind her.

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Factual error: Phoebe holds up a bag of quarters that is almost the size of her head. This would be physically impossible for anyone except perhaps the world's strongest weight-lifters. Quarters are exceptionally heavy for their size. Two rolls weigh exactly a pound. It would take at least 300-400 rolls worth of quarters to fill up the bag Phoebe is holding, which means she is lifting 150-200+ pounds, primarily with one arm. (00:08:40)

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: Monica and Chandler are deciding what to do about Phoebe's flirting; the shot cuts to her and Rachel, and Rachel's right hand is on her chin. In the next shot, it's her left hand on her chin. (00:12:00)

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: The amount of buttons undone on Pheobe's top by Joey changes after she says, "You didn't rip any buttons." The camera cuts to Joey then back, and it has changed. (00:18:00)

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Chandler turns on music when he and Phoebe are going to "have all the sex" you see Phoebe's arm begin to move in the right corner of the screen. When it cuts to her she has not yet begun dancing, and when he goes to turn the music on again it is a duplicate clip from the initial shot.

The One With The Girl Who Hits Joey - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: The frosting on Ross's mouth changes between when someone says "who cut Howard's cake" and "3b". (00:16:00)

Other mistake: When Ross and Phoebe are eating cheese puffs and party mix out of the bags, Phoebe's bag reads "Heez-I" instead of Cheez-It, and the brand "Sunshine" has been covered.

The One With The Girl Who Hits Joey - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe gives the housewarming gifts to Ross and also when Ross opens the door for the neighbor, his apartment number is "3B" and his neighbor's door is "3A," but in episode 14, "The One Where Everybody Finds Out," the door can be seen three times during the episode, and the number is "201" each time.

The One With The Girl Who Hits Joey - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: When Ross tells Chandler and Rachel that he's running out to buy name tags for his party, in the next shot the water bottle beside Rachel does not have its cap on, but it cuts to Rachel's closeup and the cap is on. Other differences can be seen as well, such as Rachel's hair and an extra utensil.

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. (00:03:15)
