The One with the Ick Factor - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: Monica is in her apartment with her boyfriend and they are kissing, and she invites him to stay the night. Watch the glass of wine she has poured herself: the amount of wine in the glass keeps changing. (00:08:45)

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.

The One With The Rumor - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: Right near the end of the episode when Joey comes in wearing the maternity pants, he pulls out the chair from the table twice. (00:21:20)

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

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is on the phone to Emily's mum she is making a sandwich. We see her put mayonnaise on it, the shot flicks to Emily's mum then comes back to Phoebe and the mayonnaise is now gone. (00:26:45)

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.

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

The One With All The Candy - S7-E9

Continuity mistake: When Ross is trying to convince Phoebe to try to learn to ride her bike again, the bike is completely covered by a large white sheet in the corner of Phoebe's room; however, in a later shot, the wheel of the bike is visible. (00:13:15)

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)

The One With Chandler's Dad - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Rachel are out in the Porsche it is dark outside, but when it later cuts back to Joey in his apartment stealing Rachel's underwear it is broad daylight. It is also light outside when Joey and Phoebe are talking at the coffee house later on. (00:10:30)

The One With The Stripper - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: When the stripper has just entered the apartment you can see her putting down her right arm twice, withouth enough time inbetween to put it back up. (00:09:50)

Continuity mistake: When Chandler's in Rachel's office, she tells him the lingerie isn't kept there. He says, "Yes I realise that", and starts reaching for the catalogue she's about to give him. Camera cuts, and he's now standing with his hands in his pockets, reaching out again when she gives him the catalogue. (00:02:40)

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: When the friends are talking about the contest to prove who knows each other better, Monica says to Joey "Are you scared?" and Rachel has her arms crossed. Joey says "No" and in the next shot of Rachel she is crossing them again. (00:05:00)

Pam-I-am

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.

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. (00:11:35)

The One with Two Parts: Part 1 - S1-E16

Friends mistake picture

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. (00:19:35)

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.
