The One with the Thumb - S1-E3

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Continuity mistake: When Chandler and Monica are talking about Chandler's shark obsession, his arms keep changing with each shot. When the shot is from behind (facing Monica) they are on the couch, and when the shot is in front (facing Chandler), his arms are folded in front of him. (00:19:35)

The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Monica are at Monica's table and Phoebe is trying to convince Monica to go on a date with her date's translator, watch Phoebe's arm. She points at Monica when she says, "Don't call him that; his name is Spackleback Larry", but when the shot changes to a side view of them, she has her arm resting on the table with no time to put it down between shots. (00:06:25)

The One With Joey's Porsche - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: Phoebe knocks over a vase and has to clean it up because "Let's face it; we're at Monica's." When she turns back around and notices one of the babies is missing, the baby on the right (in the striped top) falls over towards the other baby. A split second later when the shot changes the baby is sitting upright again. (00:15:15)

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: In the deleted scene on the DVDs Chandler is leaving the security interview with his holdall over his shoulder by the short strap. The camera cuts to outside the room and the holdall is now level with his legs. (Mistakes in Deleted scenes are valid if they are only in that scene which this is.) (00:24:50)

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: When Ross is in Central Perk talking about his day at work and how he is not going to work for a while because of his rage, watch his cotton candy. It changes in sizes and shape a lot, from big and uncircular to small and circular. (00:14:50)

The Last One (1) - S10-E19

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Rachel are standing at Ross' door after Rachel comes over to say goodbye and they are hugging and talking, Ross' right hand changes from being on Rachel's shoulder to on her waist and then back to her shoulder. (00:00:35)

Monica: What happened to your teeth?

Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?

Monica: She will be after tonight.

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.
