Continuity mistake: When Ross comes back to Monica and Rachel's apartment and Rachel tells him she has lost Marcel, he takes off his overcoat and lays it over the back of the sofa and then sits by it. As the scene continues, the sofa is still visible in some shots and the black coat is crumpled up on the sofa cushion.

Visible crew/equipment: When everyone walks in while Ross and Rachel are talking, just as Joey says that he doesn't need violence to enjoy a movie, in the small mirror behind Joey we can see the reflection of equipment moving, presumably a reflector screen.

Continuity mistake: While Rachel's babysitting Marcel she's watching the soap opera on TV, and when she points out Dr. Francis there's a closeup of the TV and when she points out Raven there's another closeup, but the TVs in both closeups are different, as well as the items that are near the TVs.

Continuity mistake: When Monica takes the newsletter from Rachel it's open to the pages with engagement news, and we can see the left page has pictures as Monica reads Mindy and Barry's notice on the right page, but when Monica wiggles out of her comment about Mindy being pretty that left page is now only words at the bottom, even though she's still open to the same page with Mindy and Barry's notice.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Rachel and Monica talk about the free coffee sample, Rachel puts it down on the counter to her right. In the next shot it's lying to her left with no time to have gotten there. After that it switches from the right to the left and back again.
