Continuity mistake: During the scene when Chandler arrives with his test results, Phoebe is reading a book with a red section on the left hand page. In the next shot, the red on the page has vanished. Then, in the next shot, the red page is back again. Also Phoebe's left hand moves between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Ross and Rachel are talking about his playdate with the stripper, a lady in a black vest talks to the people at the table behind them, then goes to the bar and shakes hands with a lady in a black jacket. She does all this again in another shot.
Continuity mistake: In the one with Rachel's new dress, she's in her underwear on the sofa when Joshua comes in. In wide shots focusing on Joshua she's quite laid back, but in close shots of her she's sitting more upright. Worse than that, her legs are crossed, but uncross in the shot of his parents coming in, only to re-cross in the next shot when she gasps.
Continuity mistake: When Jill drops her shopping bags on the coffee shop table, the small blue Tiffany's bag is visible on the end of the 'line'. But it is not visible in any shots after Rachel comes in. Additionally, when Rachel grabs the bags and leaves, Ross seems to pick the little blue bag up off the floor, though it is not shown how the bag got there.
Continuity mistake: The hallway outside Ross' new apartment (series 6 onwards) always changes. Sometimes, the apartment is at the end of a dead-end corridor, and there is a plant outside, covering up the wall; sometimes you can go past the apartment and turn left or right; or, as in this episode, you can only turn right immediately after you have passed the apartment.
Continuity mistake: Rachel is telling Ross why she doesn't want to go to the dinner, and she says "the first sign is I don't want to, and...I'm not going'. While she says this, her left hand is completely empty, but then in the next shot the camera goes back to Ross and she is now holding the baby monitor in that hand. It then moves around in different shots afterwards.
Continuity mistake: In the scene after Monica pretends to drop socks in the hallway in order to prevent Rachel from telling Ross she still loves him, Rachel goes back into the apartment and locks Monica out. Monica then starts to pound on the door with her bare left hand. The scene changes to the apartment and Ross opens the door to let Monica in. All of a sudden Monica is pounding the door with her right hand wrapped in a sock. (This continuity problem is for the widescreen version, where we see a closeup of Monica not seen on the DVD, in the hallway with a bare hand right before Ross opens the door. However, on the DVD there are extra shots of Ross and Rachel after seeing Monica's bare hand pounding and then seeing her with the sock on her hand, which gives her ample time to put it on).
Continuity mistake: When Joey says "we'll call that plan B, all right?", Monica has her chin in her hand. When it cuts to a different angle, she's got both arms on the table. Rachel also goes from having both hands clasped under her chin to having one arm resting on the table and one reaching for coffee.
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.
