Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Monica are discussing whether or not Rachel should meet Ross at the airport she's taking a bottle of red wine out of the refrigerator, but when she places it on the table in the next camera shot the bottle of wine is suddenly a bottle of white wine.
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: S3E1; Ross is telling Chandler about how woman tell each other everything in Central perk. Chandler puts a book about trout on the table and then talks to Ross, then the camera zooms out and the book has moved more to his left and a coffee mug is in front of it.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey is showing kids around the museum, there's a little boy who corrects Joey about the existence of the Mastodon. The kid's arm is by his side at the beginning of the scene. When he begins saying, "Isn't the Mastodon from the Pliocene Epoch?" his left arm is suddenly up and his thumb pointing at the Mastodon.
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: In the scene when Phoebe says goodbye to David, you can see Phoebe's long hair on her back. The scene goes back and forth between Phoebe and David or Phoebe and Joey (after David leaves). Each time the amount of hair on Phoebe's back changes. Sometimes it is a thin bit of hair, other times a large chunk (while the rest of her hair is framing her face in front).
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.
