Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: The number of the flats near the start of the first series was 4 and 5. After a few shows they changed to 19 and 20. [The producers realised that the numbers 4 and 5 were for apartments on the lower floors and had shown Monica's apartment to be much higher up so they changed the numbers - it's still a mistake but there's the reason.]

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Across Series 3 - 5, Ross remains the same age (29) for all three years. In Series 3 he tells Chandler, "No thanks, I'm 29" when offered chocolate milk; in Series 4 when the guys try to party without Gandalf they all say they're 29; and in Series 5 when he's trying to reconcile with Emily, he says either he does, or he would get divorced for the second time before age 30.

Kayla Letcher

The One Where Emma Cries - S9-E2

Continuity mistake: In the coffee house, when Ross and Joey are having a fight about Joey's proposal to Rachel, Ross does the "quote gesture" with his hands and Joey says he doesn't know what this means. In TOW the Secret Closet, Joey used it himself when talking to Chandler, in the scene where he asks him to bring a bobby pin to pick the closet's lock. (00:08:55)

The One With the Holiday Armadillo - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: During this episode, Chandler is having major problems slipping people dollar bills. He asks Monica if Richard (her ex) use to slip people notes. But in Series 2 there was an episode where Chandler and Joey were doing impressions of Richard; they impersonate him by slipping money to each other with no problems. So not only has Chandler forgotten that Richard used to slip money, he's also lost the ability to slip money himself. (00:05:05)
