Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, Phoebe gives Monica a push on her rollerskates and then we cut to Gunther giving Rachel a mug of cocoa. At this point, Monica is about to crash into Rachel, but as the angle changes we see Phoebe giving Monica a push for a second time.
Continuity mistake: When Phoebe enters the coffee house to get Joey's advice on her outfit for Mike's sister's party, it cuts to Joey saying "You look stop-eating hot", and Phoebe's left hand can be seen making a nervous up-down motion in response. But when it cuts back to her, it is her right hand making the motion and her purse is now in her left hand.
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene in Central Perk when Paul (Elizabeth's dad) takes Ross to one side to talk to him you can see the girl in the blue top enters the door twice: first the shot after Paul says "I'm funny like that" and then again after Ross says "I realise it upsets you".
Continuity mistake: When Jack and Judy leave Joey's apartment, there is a birthday banner on the counter that has fallen off. When Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe are racing the toys to see who gets to go, the banner is back on. In this time no-one has fixed the banner as there is not enough time for them to do so off camera and the people on camera don't fix it. It's most clear that it's back on when Monica is saying, "Technically, our dog never crossed the finish line".
Continuity mistake: Just before the opening credits, when Ross says, "That's 'pathet', which is Sanskrit for 'really cool way to live', " Marcel is sitting on Ross's left shoulder in the closeup, but in the next shot the monkey is suddenly sitting on his right shoulder, right before Ross walks off screen.
Continuity mistake: While everyone's at the restaurant Rachel dips a tortilla chip into guacamole and gets some on her hand. When Paolo takes a bite from the chip he also eats the guacamole off Rachel's hand while she's still holding the rest of the tortilla chip, but in the next closeup Rachel's hand is empty, then in the next shot the remaining tortilla chip reappears in Rachel's hand.
