Friends

Season 1 generally

Other mistake: At the first shot of Central Perk, in "The One with the Monkey" and "The One with the Dozen Lasagnas", you can see they used the same footage twice because the same three people are having the same conversation in both episodes.

Casual Person

Show generally

Other mistake: In his apartment from later episodes, Ross' kitchen door is on the same wall as the front door, and it is a long and narrow kitchen, but Ross' apartment is between two others. The floor plan doesn't make sense unless the kitchen is only a foot wide, otherwise it would jut off into the hallway.

The One Where Rachel's Sister Babysits - S10-E5

Other mistake: Jennifer Aniston's tan mark from her wedding ring is especially visible in this episode. Most notably when she says "But Erin Brockovich had her own house."

The One With Ross's Inappropriate Song - S9-E7

Other mistake: When Joey and Chandler are watching Richard's sex tape the screen is off right before Monica comes in, and yet she sees the video playing (you can still hear sex noises with the screen off). (00:14:40)

The One Where Rachel Finds Out - S1-E24

Other mistake: When Rachel leaves the apartment to pursue Ross to the airport, she is turning to the left when she exits the apartment. The stairs are to the right.

The One with the Stoned Guy - S1-E15

Other mistake: Mid episode when Monica turns off the cordless phone after being told by Wendy that she can not make it, the phone makes the "out of range" audio tone instead of the "power off" audio tone. Occurs directly as Monica says, "Wendy, we had a deal, yeah, you promised. Wendy, Wendy, Wendy.".

Wes

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Other mistake: Ross says that he was at Disneyland with Carol and got caught hooking up on Small World and asked to "never to return to the Magic Kingdom." Disneyland is in California and the Magic Kingdom is part of Disney World in Florida. (00:06:10)

The One With The Soap Opera Party - S9-E20

Other mistake: In the opening credits, the word "Teleplay" is misspelled as "Telelplay."

The One With Ross' Step Forward - S8-E11

Other mistake: In the opening scene when Rachel says "I went from store to store sitting on Santa laps" the camera is out of focus.

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

Other mistake: When Phoebe makes fun of Ross' Princess Leia fantasy with the rolls, Rachel tries to stop her; the shots used are the same action, just from different angles. Look at Rachel's hands and the towel in her hand when Phoebe puts the rolls by her ears.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Other mistake: When Rachel attempts to board the plane the first time, the man at the desk looks at her passport upside down.

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Other mistake: In "TOW the cheap wedding dress" the whole episode is about how Chandler wants "The Swing Kings" to play at the wedding, because, at their concert, that is where he realised that Monica was the woman he wanted to dance all his dances with, and Monica goes to great lengths to secure the band. In this episode, the band at the wedding is actually called "Jungle Swing".

The One With Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E. - S6-E20

Other mistake: When we see the chess board at Central Perk that Ross and Chandler are using, the black pawn in front of the black knight nearest the camera is missing, and from the arrangement of the white pieces, it cannot have been captured yet.

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Other mistake: When Emily first walks in wearing her wedding dress, there is a distinctive difference between that dress and the one Monica picked up from the store a few episodes earlier and tried on (yes, more than that she is also wearing a jacket). There is a band of material at the top of the dress when Emily is wearing it that was not there when Monica wore it.

The One With All The Rugby - S4-E15

Other mistake: When Ross first goes out to play rugby and goes into the scrum, just after Emily talks to the rest of the players, he jumps into the middle of the scrum where the ball should be. Instead, in the next shot, the rugby ball is to the far left of the shot, not in the actual scrum.

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.
