The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Continuity mistake: In the One in Barbados (part 2), just after Monica bashes her hand against the table, the shot of Chandler asking if she's OK shows Monica raising a finger right at the edge of the screen. We then cut to Monica, who's cradling both her hands together. (00:42:50)

The One With All The Wedding Dresses - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: There is a scene in the guys' apartment where the phrase on the Magna Doodle keeps changing. Joey is complaining to Chandler about having to stay awake all night for a sleep study. Rachel and Ross then enter the apartment (at different times) and Ross announces he is getting married to Emily in a month. In some shots during the scene the Magna Doodle reads, "get out!" in other shots it reads, "Poop." (Widescreen).

The One With Unagi - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: Just before Chandler gives Monica the mixed tape, he tries to manipulate a coat hanger into something feasible. He stretches it out and holds it up, saying "Yes, honey, I made it myself," then the camera cuts to another angle as he throws it down. After the cut the hanger is not as stretched as it was before. (00:10:40)

The One with the Ick Factor - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: Right at the end when Ross hits Chandler with his rolled up magazine, he only folds over one-third of the magazine onto the middle third. When it cuts to him hitting Chandler (without a time delay between him hitting Chandler and folding the magazine) the magazine is fully folded over. (00:21:30)

The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Chandler sits on Joey in an attempt to regain possession of his seat, the shirt sleeve on his left arm becomes unrolled and slides down. When he stands up, the camera cuts to face Ross while he is giving out directions, leaving Chandler's back to the audience. Chandler's sleeve is now rolled back up. The sleeve remains rolled for the rest of the sequence. (00:06:30)

The One With Joey's Dirty Day - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is telling Monica and Phoebe about her night out with Joshua the previous evening, Monica is holding a glass of orange juice. To begin with the glass is half full, but then changes to being almost full to the top, and then back to half full. (00:09:00)

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

The One With The Ultimate Fighting Champion - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: After Rachel and Phoebe see Bonnie and Ross in Central Perk, Rachel is yelling at Phoebe that she needs to break them up. At first, Phoebe is holding her coat in her left hand and a purse in her right, but then she is holding them both in her left, with no time to have changed hands. (00:16:30)

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

The One With All The Candy - S7-E9

The One Where Underdog Gets Away - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Chandler is able to get into Monica's apartment to tell everyone that Underdog got away, but later when Rachel closes the door it is now locked. We can see the door as each person is leaving and nobody does anything which could be construed as locking the door before it closes. It's been often demonstrated in the show that the door doesn't lock automatically. (00:13:20)

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Joey are eating the baby food, Phoebe says 'Maybe once they start dating and see what's out there..." she puts the spoon in her mouth. Then when the shot changes to show Joey, her spoon is back in the jar. (00:03:25)

Mistakes

When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding.
