Suggested correction: He switches the glass from right to left, so, unfortunately you're wrong.

The mistake is valid. While we do see him switching his glass between hands during the scene, when he says he's glad everyone's Thanksgiving sucked, he raises his glass in his right hand. In the next shot it's switched to his left and lowered a bit. Since this happens between shots (and he's not off camera), it means no time elapsed, so there's no time for him to switch hands again (in the submitted pictures, the bottom picture is the first shot and the top picture is the 2nd shot).

The One With the List - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: At the very end when U2 are on the radio it shows Rachel picking up the phone to ring the radio station. Without the song skipping it cuts to Ross and straight away the DJ comes on and says that Rachel rang her and told her what Ross did. How did Rachel ring up within the space of a second or two and say what Ross did and get the message through on to the radio? (00:20:00)

The One With The Routine - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: When the Snippy Guy is pointing out couples to go on the platforms next, he points to one couple with his left hand, while holding a clipboard in his right hand. In the very next shot he points to the next couple, but this time with his right hand while holding the clipboard in his left. (00:11:15)

The One With The Jam - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is talking to her stalker for the first time, at one point, he tips the flowers to the side when Phoebe says, 'Well, this is awkward,' and he puts his left hand on the end of the stems. In the next shot he is holding them with both hands. (00:02:55)

Continuity mistake: When the group is in the coffee house discussing Kip there is a bag on the table in front of Monica. When Rachel enters she places her bag on top of the bag already sitting there. Toward the end of this scene Rachel's bag then disappears and only the original bag is now sitting there. (00:13:10)

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)

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.
