The One With The Giant Poking Device - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end when Chandler is singing "Endless Love", Phoebe comes in and when she walks over to Chandler he has his arms wrapped around the Lionel Richie record with the shoe in his hand in front of the record. When the shot switches to just Chandler, his right arm is resting on the arm of the chair and his left arm is holding the shoe behind the record.

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: Phoebe is complaining about people disrespecting her charity bucket, and hands the bucket to Monica as she does so. In the first two shots Monica holds the bucket by its edge, but when the camera goes back to her for a third time, she is holding the bucket by its handle.

The One With Joey's Bag - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: There is a shot of Phoebe in Central Perk about to talk to Frank (from outside, looking in). From this shot there are several people outside Central Perk. The camera does an instant cut to behind Phoebe, (inside, looking outside) and the people have vanished.

The One With The Flashback - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Phoebe and Ross are in the soon to be closed bar sitting on the pool table. He clears it of everything, but a few seconds later he stops making out because the "damn balls are in the way" and somehow magics up a handful of snooker balls. If you look closely when he's clearing the table, there are two dark balls at the side which he studiously ignores, and which Lisa Kudrow then surreptitiously grabs and takes onto the table with her so David Schwimmer can grab them later.

The One With The Lottery - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey and Phoebe are holding the lucky bone, which they have to break and make a wish, look at Joey's thumb; the location of it changes between shots.

The One With All The Cheesecakes - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: Chandler walks into his apartment to find Rachel eating cheesecake without him. As the door is shutting, the pen on the Magnadoodle is hanging loose; it can be heard hitting the door when Chandler is closing it. The next shot shows Rachel stop eating, and when we next see Chandler, the door is closed and the pen is in its holder.

The One With the Breast Milk - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode when we first see Carol breastfeed Ben, Susan puts a pillow under Ben's head twice.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Continuity mistake: In 'The One With The Shark Porn' (Series 9), when Chandler and Monica are talking about his supposed shark obsession, Chandler's collar switches from up to down depending on the shot. It switches several times during the scene.

The One With Rachel's Assistant - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Joey is talking to the producers of Mac and Cheese, he says, "We're not even shooting them anymore?!" As he says this he lifts his left arm up, but in the very next shot his left arm is back down by his side.

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: When we see the video, notice Rachel's hair. It is the same length as it is throughout season 8, but her hair is supposed to be the short bob she had in season 7 since it took place then.

The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Chandler picks up the phone, he says "Bob here" and Ross is sitting by the bar on the living room side. When the scene starts again after the credits, Ross is getting a drink out of the refrigerator.

The One That Could Have Been, part 1 - S6-E15

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe's trying to make the TV work at the beginning, in the close-ups and the first wide shot the remote's at an angle, but in the second wide shot it's straight. It then goes back to being at an angle.

The One With The Tiny T-Shirt - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: Ross is over at Chandler and Joey's looking through the peep hole for hours waiting for Rachel to return. When she does and Ross sees her go inside with Mark, Ross tries to open the door to go see her, and Chandler jumps on his back to stop him. As Chandler says "I...am not going to let you do this", Ross grabs the door handle. Then the angle changes, and as Chandler says "You...are surprisingly strong," Ross is further from the handle and grabs it again.

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.

The One With Phoebe's Cookies - S7-E3

Continuity mistake: While trying out different recipes, at one point Monica's holding a cookie in her hand. It's a whole cookie, but when the angle changes, suddenly a chunk is missing.

The One With The Jam - S3-E3

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.

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.
