The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

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.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Other mistake: When Phoebe and Ross are at JFK, some of the people who are at that airport are the same people who are also at Newark. It's particularly funny to see the people behind Ross and Phoebe at JFK when Phoebe claims they're on their honeymoon, and when it cuts to Rachel at Newark as she's looking for her boarding pass, those same people are there too.

The One With Rachel's Other Sister - S9-E8

Other mistake: When Joey and Phoebe are talking while Rachel and Amy are fighting, Phoebe says the line 'Oh my God. Shouldn't we stop this?', Joey is mouthing her lines. (00:20:25)

The One With Frank, Jr. - S3-E5

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. (00:00:50)

The One With Phoebe's Cookies - S7-E3

Other mistake: When Monica realizes that the cookies were the Nestle Toll House recipe, Monica tosses the yellow bag of Nestle brand chocolate chips to Phoebe, and the brand name has been partially covered so it looks like "I Iest" and the Toll House logo on the side has also been partially covered.

The One Where Ross Can't Flirt - S5-E19

Other mistake: While everyone's watching Law and Order for Joey's big scene, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, and Chandler are sitting on the couch and Ross is standing behind them, but in the TV's closeup the screen reflection reveals an empty couch.

The One Where Chandler Takes a Bath - S8-E13

Other mistake: In the opening scene, while Joey's eating the bowl of Frosted Flakes the box is on the counter, and the brand name "Kellogg's" has been painted blue with its white line extended and covered with a sticker. At the end of the episode, when Joey's eating the Cocoa Puffs the box on the counter has the brand logos for General Mills covered with stickers on the front and sides.

The One Where the Monkey Gets Away - S1-E19

Other mistake: When Rachel's watching the soap opera on TV while babysitting Marcel, she and Marcel are sitting in the middle of the couch, but in the closeup of Dr. Francis we can see the reflection of the empty couch at the bottom of the TV screen.

The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

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)

The One With The Football - S3-E9

Other mistake: The accent of the Dutch woman is not a Dutch accent at all. It appears to be Scandinavian. (00:07:00)

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

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. (00:04:45)

The One Where Rosita Dies - S7-E13

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. (00:04:15)

The One With Two Parties - S2-E22

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. (00:17:55)

The One with the Evil Orthodontist - S1-E20

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. (00:00:40)

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

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. (00:17:05)

The One With The Ballroom Dancing - S4-E4

Other mistake: Right at the end of the episode, Phoebe's got a job interview. We see the outside of a massage parlour, but the name on the awning has been superimposed - it moves about a bit while the shot itself is still. (00:20:45)

The One With Joey's Porsche - S6-E5

Other mistake: Immediately after Joey walks in as Chandler is handling the baby, we see him staring and waving in a direction past the stage. (00:06:55)

The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel - S6-E2

Other mistake: When Monica's trying to evoke some kind of an emotional reaction from Rachel, who's polishing her toenails, there's a bottle of Cutex nail polish remover on the table with part of the brand name painted black, so it reads "Cu Ex" on the label.

The One Where Rachel is Late - S8-E22

Other mistake: Ross wants Rachel to change, but she claims that it is 100° out. Monica and Chandler got married on May 15, the day Rachel was officially pregnant. 9 Months after May would be Febuary. It would be cold out.

The One With The Truth About London - S7-E16

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. (00:28:00)

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.
