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)

Revealing mistake: Whenever Monica's apartment is shot from the point of view of the balcony looking in, fake walls have to be put up across the room to cover the open space (since there is no wall there usually). When the friends are looking out the window at Ugly Naked Guy and his girlfriend in this episode, you can see that the rear wall does not extend nearly far enough - there is a large black space behind Monica.

Visible crew/equipment: When Joey walks into Central Perk and everyone's laughing about the VD ads, just as Phoebe comments that laughing can be "infectious" we can see the camera at the right side of the screen.

Continuity mistake: When Rachel serves Joey coffee after he comes into Central Perk wearing make up, she puts the cup down on the far left hand side of the table. As Joey picks it up, it has moved to the far right hand side between shots. (00:02:45)

Continuity mistake: When Rachel gets her mail off Monica she puts it down on the couch and picks up a sealed envelope. The camera cuts and the envelope is now open with no time to open it. (00:07:25)

Visible crew/equipment: When Monica shuts the TV off while watching skiing, there is a closeup of the screen as it goes blank. You can see reflected in the blank screen an image of a man in a long sleeved shirt and tie, who does not correspond to any of the characters in the room. (00:08:00)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode when Chandler makes a toast, he is holding the glass in his right hand. In the next shot, the glass has jumped to his left hand. (00:21:05)

Visible crew/equipment: When Chandler runs into the apartment to say Underdog has gotten away, a crew member can be seen reflected in the sun shaped mirror behind him walking through the back of the shot. It can't have been Rachel, Monica, Phoebe or Joey because Joey is sitting down and Rachel, Monica and Phoebe are nowhere near the mirror. (00:14:05)

Continuity mistake: When the six are looking out the window at Ugly Naked Guy cooking his turkey, they are looking straight across the alley into his window. In "TOW The Giant Poking Device", Ugly Naked Guy's apartment is several floors below theirs in the adjoining building.

The One With The Girl From Poughkeepsie - S4-E10

Rachel: No accountants. Oh, and no one from, like, "legal." I don't like guys with boring jobs.
Chandler: Oh, and Ross was like what, a lion tamer?

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
