The One with the Stoned Guy - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Monica is explaining to Rachel that she has hired her friend Wendy as her waitress, Rachel is holding a water bottle in one hand and the cap in the other. Monica moves towards her and Rachel is pointing her hand in Monica's direction and then in the next shot we see Rachel from another angle and her hand is holding the cap on top of the bottle too fast to have happened in normal time. (00:08:40)

The One With the Baby on the Bus - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Stephanie is singing "Angel in the Morning", there is a person in overalls sitting behind the green pole. The shot changes to Phoebe outside and you can still see the person; it changes back to Stephanie and the person is now sitting on the next table. (00:16:00)

The One With the Holiday Armadillo - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ross takes a liquorice from the skull, in the first close up shot he is holding it in his hand, but then immediately after this when they zoom out, he is chewing a piece. This is impossible because he would have had no time to bite it. (00:00:50)

The One After the Superbowl, part 1 - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When 'Drake' is having dinner with Erica (the stalker), Joey is seen to be wearing a ring on the ring finger of his left hand. This can been seen just before another diner begins to choke. When the episode cuts back to them in the restaurant, the ring is gone. (00:09:50)

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Monica and Chandler are going on to dance for the last time, Monica speaks and her hair is neatly behind her right ear. The shot then looks to Chandler before going back to Monica immediately. However her hair is suddenly behind her left ear when she can't have moved it as her hands are in the shot at all times. (00:21:15)

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the coffee house, Phoebe is talking to Monica who is drinking a cup of coffee. Towards the end of the scene, the camera is on Phoebe who is smiling & laughing at Monica. In the right hand corner is a side view of 'Monica' however, it is not Courtney Cox in the scene, but a completely different actress. [Widescreen version only, although the "wrong" nose is visible in the original]. (00:06:20)

The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying, "I knew it!" When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy, and it is a big deal!" is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
