The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end when Rachel comes into the coffee house and sees Mona with Ross, she is holding a brown paper bag. When you see her in the background, the the top of the paper bag is rolled over away from her. When the camera switches to just Rachel, the paper bag is the other way around with the top rolled over towards her. (00:21:35)

The One With The Cooking Class - S8-E21

Continuity mistake: The night before they go to the baby furniture store, Ross and Rachel are in the kitchen talking. Just before they leave the kitchen watch Rachel's robe: in one shot the 'lapels' are neatly one over the other, and in the next shot one lapel has moved lower and looks halfway folded over as if she hastily pulled the robe together.

The One Where Chandler Can't Cry - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: Jill goes to Ross' place, intending to make Rachel mad. When Ross goes to Rachel's to talk to her afterward, she rolls up her sleeves saying, "I'll give you something to think about." When Rachel is next shown, her sleeves are rolled down. Her arms also go from by her sides to crossed in front of her. (00:19:10)

The One With The Racecar Bed - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey's teaching soap opera for actors, his name changes from the 'a' being on the line to being above it. The line itself also reaches the far right of the board in some shots, and is short of it in others. (00:06:00)

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: During the Monopoly game (deleted scene), right after Monica says, "we can bring my wheelbarrow, to carry your teeth," we see Ross reading the game manual at the end of the shot.

The One Where Phoebe Runs - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'TOW Phoebe Runs' when Rachel runs into the horse at the end there is a shot of the horse looking round at her, when the shot changes angle to show Rachel picking herself up you can see that the horse is still looking straight ahead. (00:18:35)

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.
