Other mistake: When Rachel arrives at Central Perk, Monica introduces her to everybody, including to Chandler, as if they don't know each other. In later episodes, we learn that Chandler met Monica and Rachel a couple of times when they were in high school (including when Monica cut his toe off). Chandler even kissed Rachel once, and since Chandler always says that he hasn't kissed many women, he should have perfectly remembered Rachel, and Monica should have remembered that the two of them knew each other.
Other mistake: Chandler tries to open the door that leads to his room, but Joey has sawed the door in half so only the upper half opens, and Chandler then falls over the bottom half. He has to hit it with some force to fall over it, but it doesn't budge an inch.
Other mistake: When Rachel leave her message on Ross' answering machine she mentioned the name Michael after 17 seconds and "I'm over you" after 25 seconds. When Ross listen to the tape he asks "Who is Michael ?" after 8 seconds. Rachel flips the phone out of his hand after 18 seconds so he couldn't have heard her "I'm over you."
00:10:35 - 00:12:50
Other mistake: When Joey comes out the bathroom in the girls' apartment with a turkey stuck on his head, the bathroom floor has the black and white tiles. But that floor wasn't there until Joey put it there in Series 3, The One With Frank Jr. So in the flashback the bathroom floor should be white tiles.
Other mistake: In this episode we seemingly understand why Ross and Monica's parents favor Ross. In one scene at Monica's apartment Ross says that it is because their parents thought Judy was barren. This would make sense except that in TOW Rachel's Book, Jack and Judy tell Monica and Chandler that they had to get married because Judy was pregnant. Judy was using a diaphragm as birth control and Jack's dog ate it. It doesn't make sense that Judy would use a diaphragm if she thought she was barren. This was not news to Monica since she said she had heard the story about the dog eating her mother's diaphragm at her 5th grade Halloween party.
Other mistake: In the scene where Rachel is talking to Chandler in the hall, after she says "the 4th of July", it cuts to a shot from behind Rachel's head. If you look on the right hand side of the screen, you can see a piece of wood in the foreground. This probably came from Joey and Chandler's doorframe, through which this view would have been filmed. In addition, this door was supposed to have been closed throughout the entire duration of this scene.
Other mistake: This is the episode where a guy across from Monica's apartment is spying on them. Joey says he caught him spying into his and Chandler's apartment yesterday. This is impossible considering the layout of the building i.e. the fact that the only part of Joey and Chandler's apartment which faces toward the spying guy has the stairwell and hallway blocking it from view (not to mention the protruding part of Monica's apartment). There is another window in Joey's apartment but it faces completely the wrong direction. The bathroom has no windows. The angles just don't add up.
Other mistake: In series 8, 'The One with the Videotape,' when they are watching Ross and Rachel on the TV and when Rachel (on the video) is discussing the invitations and how Monica didn't shut up about sending them, Chandler points at the TV and makes a kind-of confused face. A few minutes later, just before he says 'Did you do it on our invitations?' the same shot of him pointing and pulling a face comes up.
Other mistake: Right at the very end, when Joey is in the fat-suit and picks up a piece of food and says "How you doin'?" he doesn't put it in his mouth, he just lifts it to his lips, stops, and tries to stay still. If this had been a freeze on the part of the director then fair enough, but it isn't as he and particularly Monica are still moving. It just looks rather corny and amateur, as though they are waiting for the "cut" to be called.
Other mistake: When Joey and Chandler are in the cab on the bridge, Joey quickly stops the cab so Chandler can get out. However, on the screen behind, the background doesn't 'slow down' as Joey does, it just continues as if the cab is going at the same speed. Then, in the next shot, it is still. When Joey sets off again, the background stays the same and doesn't show that the cab is getting faster.
Other mistake: When Chandler, Monica and Erika arrive back at the apartment after sightseeing, Chandler enters the apartment from the left (past where their apartment door is) rather than from the right, as if he came up the stairs. He obviously is entering from the stage and didn't take the time or cue to appear to enter from the direction of the stairs.
Other mistake: When Ross goes to see Guru Saj, he has his 'thing' removed. However, it is really obvious that Guru is not going anywhere near the thing, because you can see that Ross' shirt is still tucked into his trousers, and the Guru just rubs his hands along the shirt.
Other mistake: Ross makes up the questions for the quiz. There are two groups of questions, one for the girls and one for the boys. Each one has four categories; there are four questions in each category. From these 16 questions, Ross asks ten. Thus, there have to be six left after the quiz. But in one group, seven questions can be seen (there are seven cards left).
Other mistake: Monica and Chandler's wedding is May 2001 (we are given the dates by the characters on the show, so it doesn't matter when the show aired.) And Rachel reveals at the wedding that she is pregnant, so that means she got pregnant in April or so of 2001. "The One With the Rumor" aired and is set to take place at Thanksgiving 2001, during which time Rachel should be 7 months pregnant. But her stomach's flat as a pancake.
Other mistake: When Chandler says "We just got married. Right there!" and points. We hear a small 'ding' and Monica asks "Is that your ring?" But when Chandler pointed, you can see that all of his fingers except his index finger are closed to his hand. So the ring couldn't have come off.
