Suggested correction: Chandler's suit changes because he's wearing different ones over multiple days. He attempts to fire Nina, then chickens out, then tries again on another day and fails, then finally musters the courage to do so on a third attempt after his boss confronts him.

No, if you watch the scene you will see that on the second attempt the suit changes colour between camera angles. This is not because it is different days.

I just streamed it again. I don't see that the suit changes color from grey to green, but it does look different when seen from either the front or the back view. However, it looks like this is just from the set lighting. There's a strong light source coming from the left-hand side that makes Chandler's suit look lighter from the back. The front is more shadowed.

The One With Phoebe's Uterus - S4-E11

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.

The One With All The Cheesecakes - S7-E11

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). (00:19:10)
