The One with George Stephanopoulos - S1-E4

Corrected entry: In the episode in series 1 where all the girls are having a sleep-over at Monica's, they're all lazing around and the camera shows Monica laying on a sofa, picking at a large bowl of cookie dough with a wooden spoon. While she is speaking, you can clearly see her accidentally flick a piece of cookie dough out of the bowl onto the floor. If this was the 'real' Monica, I'm sure she would have freaked out and cleaned it up straight away.

Correction: The girls had been drinking, so it's possible that Monica was a little too buzzed to care about it, or even notice it in the first place.

I can't recall any episode where Monica drops her neat and tidy persona. Her O.C.D. always controls her. I think the cookie dough is a mistake in the show that they let go or didn't see.

The One With Chandler's Dad - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In this episode Monica's Porsche is black, but when she got it it was a silvery-gray colour.

Correction: The Porsche is still silvery-grey, but just looks darker in certain lights. When Rachel drives off from the curb, and when they're pulled over waiting for the cop, are just two places where the original colour is still evident.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Corrected entry: Phoebe takes a positive pregnancy test right after she gets implanted with the embryos. There's no test in the world that can tell that fast if someone is pregnant - even the best tests take at least a week after conception.

Correction: Phoebe explains before she takes the first pregnancy test that her body's "always been a little faster than Western medicine". It's a deliberate joke.

A deliberate joke it may be, but we all know Phoebe believes a lot of silly things, and this is one of them. It really didn't make sense for her to get a positive result that fast.

The One with the Monkey - S1-E10

Corrected entry: Early in the scene when Ross is introducing them to Marcel, look over Chandler's shoulder - a person is visible going into a bedroom.

Correction: This is wrong, it's Phoebe going into the room (check the clothes) after she's been speaking with the gang, she walks off.

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene when Phoebe breaks into the other Phoebe's house and gets caught, the older Phoebe was telling the younger one that the man in the photo is not Frank Buffay, but is Chuck Mangioni. Right after that, as Phoebe 2 walks towards the camera, you can see that the door behind her moves open, and there is a visible shadow of someone who walks by that doorway. (00:19:00)

The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying "I knew it." When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy and it is a big deal.", is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
