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

Continuity mistake: When Rachel returns from her first interview at Ralph Lauren she takes out a bottle of water out of the fridge. In the following shot her hands are empty and there are only Chandler's and Joey's bottles on the table. Rachel's bottle reappears on the table next to Chandler's and Joey's bottles (that are also standing closer together than before) for a moment just when Chandler starts saying "Well, you could have tried not kissing him" and then vanishes again. (00:06:20 - 00:07:15)

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

Continuity mistake: Joey is watching Ross from Monica's window and goes searching for the hot girl. The exterior shot crossing the street between buildings is inconsistent with the interior shots, which show them looking at each other across an alley with no visible fire escapes. The exterior shot crosses a street to a building with street-facing fire escapes on every apartment.

The One Where Ross Can't Flirt - S5-E19

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the gang is watching Joey's "substitution" video, you can easily see the reflection on the television that no one is sitting on the couch, but when the camera goes back to the gang, they're sitting down on the couch. (00:19:30)

Continuity mistake: When Ross first tries to flirt with the pizza girl he has money in his hand. When Chandler walks over he gives his own money for the pizza, she leaves, and Ross still has his money. In the next shot when he shuts the door, his hands are empty, then it is back in the next shot when Ross yells at Chandler.
